"Great location just off the city centre in a no frills affordable B&B"
Visited Edinburgh to run the marathon (first tiem!) Stayed 4 nights room only using 2 rooms (one ground/one lower ground. Wanted to be close to the city centre without the need for transport and it was ideal. We breakfasted at the local cinema complex, but loads of other eating places locally so plenty of choice. Went to the theatre to see Ghost the Musical (very good) and ate locally in the evening. Spent a whole day in the castle which was very interesting and overall had a fabulous time. Read less
Likes:
All of it! Lots to do and see, easy to find our way around being so close to the city centre, good guide from our host Richard, which also helped. Even the weather was good pretty much all of the time
Dislikes:
Nope! Could only have been better if we had got it free!

"Checked in and left within 10 minutes"
We couldn't get out quick enough. The welcome was awkward, it was a very confined space and the room looked nothing like the pictures online. It was really quite unprofessional in the sense that the information booklet left about the Guest House was not up-top-date by scribbling out old information and writing in pen the latest information e.g. previous owners were no longer there and it was taken over as at 16th April 2013 Read less
Likes:
The fact we managed to find another room within short notice at a reasonable price.
Dislikes:
See above.
Response from Lantern Guest House:
I've had some great feed back from guests who have stayed at Lantern Guest House since taking it on from 16th April. It is in a great location, the pin code door lock system is excellent and the rooms are cleaned with care. Room 1 is quite spacious, Rooms 2 and 3 are adequately sized. I've done various things to upgrade the rooms and facilities including installing high speed 80/20 wifi (the new hub and password details being written temporarily in ink). We are friendly and professional.

Response from Lantern Guest House:
Hi Angela, Thank you for your honest and helpful review. I have recently taken on Lantern Guest House and am keen to upgrade the rooms as appropriate. I have just ordered a new mattress for Room 3. We hope to welcome you back to Lantern Guest House when you next visit Edinburgh and trust our guests using Room 3 will enjoy a comfortable nights sleep. Best regards, Richard

"Excellent accommodations for the price"
My husband and I stayed here for a few days around Beltane. The Lantern House has a great location within walking distance of Calton Hill, which was our main destination on the first night. Parking was a bit tricky and next time we'll probably rely more on public transportation. The shower was a bit small, room a bit cold, bed a bit hard but the price was excellent. The Lantern House had actually changed hands between when we booked and arrived. Notice of that would have been nice. Read less
Likes:
The manager is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and was friendly. We had to call several times with questions and he was always pleasant.
Dislikes:
The room was COLD! It's a downstairs room and the manager has a habit of turning the heat off after a certain time. Since we came back late in the night our room had already cooled
Response from Lantern Guest House:
Thank you for your review. I'm pleased you generally had a good stay here at Lantern Guest House. I am much more comfortable in the roll though ever keen to make guests stay an excellent experience. In particular I communicate to guests they are welcome to ask for additional supplies or service to accommodate their individual needs.

I have closely considered your comments on Room temperature and have adjusted the thermostat so that it remains at a higher temperature for longer.

Dislikes:
Had to go hunt for the wifi password for myself (found it under the router) because the code in the 'guidebook' was not correct. Probably due to a recent change of ownership though. And I did find it.

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.
