"Perfect place to stay for our days away!"
Stayed 3 nights in this excellent guest house. We were warmly greeted by the owner Richard, who was very friendly and attentive. During our stay he gave us information regarding places to visit, which was very useful. The room was perfect, very clean with good facilities, the bed was very comfortable and combined with the quiet location meant 3 very good nights sleep. The location of the guest house is ideal for getting around and seeing all the sights and there are many places to eat close by. Read less

Located very close to the Playhouse Theatre, Lantern Guest House is set up as 3 mini apartment style double bedded en-suite Rooms with pin code access. An additional small double bedded or single room with private bathroom is now available.

Lantern Guest House is a 3 minute walk from the Edinburgh's eastern hub (Playhouse Theatre, Omni Centre, John Lewis and Tram Terminus), and an 8 minute walk from Waverley Rail Station.

The thick walls enhance quietness between guest rooms. Windsor Street is astonishingly quiet, being so city central.

We do not offer breakfast or other meals, rather we encourage you to enjoy the bountiful and varied cuisine within a quarter of a mile from Lantern House. There are also several mini supermarkets close by. You are welcome to buy food to eat in your Room.

A fridge, microwave oven, crockery and cutlery is provided. A hospitality tray is provided in each Room (with UHT milk), fresh milk being available in the fridge.

We offer discounts for 3 or more night stays and for 2 or more Rooms booked. Please contact us direct.

W.H. Playfair's signature corner style residence with it's thick walls and castle like turrets (viewed from Room 3) enhances quietness within and around Lantern House.

We recognise the importance of sustaining the quality of cleanliness and comfort in our Guest Rooms.

Guest rooms provide homely features: Hospitality tray, FreeView TV with DVD player, towels, hand soap, shower gel and shampoo and thermostatic heating control (new boiler).

Street parking at weekends is free from 5.30pm Friday - 8.30am Monday, with free parking each evening - morning midweek. Otherwise 50p per 30 mins close by or free parking 10 mins walk away.

We will be delighted to welcome you to Lantern House to enjoy our wonderfully cultural city.
