"Such an amazing place to stay and would definitely recommend!!!"
Mine and my boyfriends stay lasted 2 nights and it was just a fantastic place to stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner who was extremely friendly and went out of his way to make sure we got settled in. Immediately he showed us to our rooms, showed the facilities available to us and even gave us a map of the area while he suggested places of interest and restaurants for us to eat at. The room was just the right size for me and my boyfriend and anything we needed was right at hand. Read less
Likes:
The owner was incredibly friendly and seemed to go out of his way for guests. The room was the perfect size and as the hotel was close to the centre of Edinburgh there was a variety of things to do.

"User friendly central location"
We were in Edinburgh for a short break and wanted somewhere that was reasonably priced and near the city centre. The Lantern Guest House fit the bill perfectly as it is just a 15 minute walk from Waverley Station. Breakfast is not provided, but there is a Wetherspoons just around the corner. The Lantern's location is also great for getting buses around the city. We quickly grabbed a trip to Leith to see the Royal Yacht and Ocean Drive shopping centre. Read less

We liked the central location of the guest house. The owner was friendly and helpful, welcoming us on our arrival and recommending places to see during our stay.

Response from Lantern Guest House:
Hi Ann
Thank you for your review. It appears that the area behind the towel hanger by the window sill was missed when the Room was cleaned, apologies. We put out 6 milk portions. Guests are welcome to ask for more supplies as stated in the welcome file. Fresh milk is also provided in a mini fridge in the corridor. Good plan: decaf coffee and tea is now available. Accommodation in central Edinburgh is expensive during Fringe Festival time, though prices at Lantern Guest House are reasonable.

towels were not changed so had damp towels all weekend
Response from Lantern Guest House:
Thank you for your review. We generally find people are pleased with the liquid handsoap that is provided. If you had asked, we would have been pleased to provide you with a bar of soap, and additional towels. We are usually around though don't tend to enter the rooms while they are occupied.

I'm pleased you appreciated the quietness of your Room.

Our Rooms are more costly at Festival time, though very reasonable compared to many other centrally located places.

Regard, Richard.

It was central. The room was spacious. It was bellow ground level but, thanks to it's little terrace(typical in Edinburgh), we did not feel at all in a basement.

Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5
 Arrived to meet Richard, very welcoming and told us anything needed just to ask. Gave us tips on where to go and places to visit. Tea and coffee facilities were great. Great nights sleep and a very quiet area. Location was suited only 10 minute walk from train station in new town. Had everything around you that is needed. A pleasant walk into new or old town where you find a more lively place. Would recommend and would definetly stay again.
