"Clean, tidy and owner very friendly"
Stayed from Friday through to Sunday on Black Friday weekend.
Arrived earlier than stated for check in - wasn't a problem at all. A lot of hotels wouldn't allow this.
Perfect location. Away from the noise of princes street, but less than a 5minute walk to the city centre.
We weren't at the house for a huge amount of time over the weekend as we were out early on a morning and back late. Having our own entrance rather than having to access through the house was amazing.
Very pleased with itRead less

Centrally 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.

A 3 minute walk from the Edinburgh's eastern hub (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 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.

Street parking at weekends is free 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.
