The lantern guest house is lovely, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others, our room was in the basement, it was clean, big enough and comfortable. Although the guest house does not provide breakfast there is a microwave and plates and cutlery available to guests along with fresh milk and a fridge. There is no shortage... More

My late night flight was delayed considerably, and Richard was extremely accommodating as he stayed up late to let us in. He would check in with us to see if he needed anything and made us feel welcome. The location is just perfect, since it is close to all the major attractions but is on a quiet street which is...

Great location on a quiet street, free weekend parking which was a bonus after missing our flight from London and driving up! Big spacious room, comfy bed, plenty of wardrobe space. Richard was a friendly helpful host, we had a great weekend!

Situated very centrally (but on a surprisingly quiet street) the guest house is great value for money. Clean, comfortable and Richard made us feel very welcome. Great pubs and restaurants nearby and close to lots of bus stops

Edinburgh was our first stop on a 10 day tour of Scotland. We stayed at the Lantern Guest House for one night. The location was very convenient, being so close to the bus station and not far from the Royal Mile. It was also great that our room had a separate entrance, and the room was huge. We were grateful... More

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
