We stayed here for two nights. We stayed in room 4 which says it is small. The room is small and only has a double bed. But the bed is very comfortable. The room was very clean. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The bathroom/toilet is away from the room but it was large and spacious. The bathroom was... More

Room was very spacious, had everything we needed and a comfy bed. Richard is a great host, provided good recommendations and let us borrow an adaptor. Shared microwave and fridge are right outside the door. Very comfortable stay, affordable and close to everything in Edinburgh. Would be nice if breakfast was at least a paid option but there is never... More

We booked at the last minute when we decided to extend our stay in Edinburgh. The owner allowed us to check in early, was very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, comfortable and in a great location. The wifi was excellent. The day of check out he allowed us to store our luggage for the rest of the day.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. All positive. We received a friendly welcome from Richard who also gave us some helpful tips of things to do in Edinburgh. The guest house was conveniently centrally located and the room was comfortable and clean.

Richard is very friendly, accommodating and warm owner. Nothing was to much trouble. This was our second visit to the Lantern Guesthouse and the rooms are cosy, clean and the location was superb for us as we like to venture out for most of the day. But the beauty of it is that's it close enough to get back to... More

As a couple who were just up for the weekend and wanted a nice private room and to be able to come and go as we please it was fantastic. Having a dressing table was a nice touch and been able to eat in our room too.

Lantern Guesthouse was exactly what we were looking for. We were greeted with a big smile by Richard the owner, when we arrived and showed to our lovely room with private coded access. The Guesthouse is within walking distance to all the nice eating places, shops, Waverley Train Station and big tourist attractions. We were even lucky with 2 bus... More

Spent in room 1 for 3nights. The room was clean, spacious & comfortable. The en-suite was on the small side, but adequate for a 3night stay. There was a microwave, fridge, ironing board & iron in the passage just outside our room, which we could use. Richard the owner is very pleasant, & is ok with us eating in the... More
