Lantern Guest House is a historic property designed by William Playfair on a quiet street in the centre of Edinburgh. It particularly suits guests who appreciate a friendly welcome along with independent and secure access via pin coded doors.
Having been a manager for a large conference centre for 20 years, I am enjoying running Lantern Guest House. It's great being in the hub of a great city, welcoming guests from all over the world. I also enjoy being close to the great outdoors.
Lantern Guest House, 3 Windsor Street, is in the Hillside area of Edinburgh just to the north of Calton Hill, from where you get panoramic views of Edinburgh and beyond. We are very close to the Playhouse Theatre and John Lewis, and there are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants very close by. It is a well lit and safe area.
