"Basement room suited us 'down to the ground'"
We stayed two nights (Friday Saturday) to help beat the Winter blues. We often come over for the day, so staying over was a small but well deserved treat.We love starting the day climbing Calton Hill which is only a short distance away. We could come and go as we pleased without disturbing our host and without having a deadline for breakfast, or feeling we had to eat plenty to get our money's worth. The weather was mixed, but having a bolthole meant that wasn't a problem. Read less
Likes:
The location, facilities and freedom to come and go when we wanted were all great. We had the larger room which was perfect, and we weren't aware of the bad weather outside once we were in.
Dislikes:
Only discovering that we'd picked a weekend with a rugby fixture, and had we gone the week after it would have been a little cheaper. However, we think that it was good value for the location.

"A great stay"
Our stay was great. It was really good value for money. The location of the guest house was very central and everywhere we went was within walking distance so it was perfect. The room was very clean, cosy, warm and quiet. No breakfast provided but all restaurants and cafes were a 5 minute walk away. Read less

"Beautiful days in Edinburgh"
Pasamos tres días en Lantern Guest House. Richard es muy agradable y siempre esta interesado en ayudarte en cuanto necesites. La habitación estaba genial, luminosa, limpia; la cama era muy cómoda y el cuarto de baño un poco pequeño pero muy limpio. Read less
Likes:
La cercanía con la estación de tren y autobús. La habitación era espaciosa. El frigorífico del pasillo. El hervidor de agua en la habitación. Richard nos guardó el equipaje el día que nos marchábamos.
Dislikes:
Por la noche hacía un poquito de frío en la habitación, pero bueno... yo es que soy muy friolero.

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 cuisine very close by or buy food to eat in your Room (mini supermarkets and bakers very close by).

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, free high speed wifi, towels, hand soap, shower gel and shampoo and thermostatic heating control.
