Positive Reviews

Good locale.

The Lantern Guest House is a quiet place surrounded by many local attractions and places of entertainment. The city’s eastern hub which includes John Lewis, Omni centre and tram for reaching the airport are just three minutes walk. The train stations of Edinburgh and Waverly are respectively five and eight minutes walk from the guest house.

Very convenient rooms.

The rooms at the guest house have the security of being accessed with a pin code. They have double bedded rooms and each room offers a lovely and peaceful accommodation. The rooms have television with satellite connection, DVD player and tea and coffee makers. A hospitality tray is replenished every day. There is a fridge with fresh milk provided and a microwave present in every room. Crockery and cutlery are also provided. The bath rooms are en suite and equipped with towels, shower gel and shampoo, hand wash and temperature controlled water.

Quiet and peaceful place.

The guest house exhibits a high standard of cleanliness. Its signature feature is its thick walls and towers resembling the ones of a castle, which ensures a peaceful and tranquil stay. The host is very helpful and friendly. No meals are cooked or provided at the guest house but plenty of restaurants surround it, so guests can indulge in the many choices of eateries around. Contrarily, they can eat in buying food from the many super markets and bakeries situated close by.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms.

Rooms are a bit cramped and furniture should be rearranged to provide room for luggage.

Bathrooms need more maintenance.

Bathrooms are not very clean and there is onset of mould in the shower and the sink tiles.

Limited parking.

Parking is free at a small distance away from the guest house. Close street parking is also available but at a cost.
