We have been here before for just drinks and it's been fine; good drinks, not too pricey and the seating areas both outside and in are nice. Most of the staff are quite friendly too. However we have been looking forward to coming here to try some of their food and decided to come in a couple of Sunday's a... More

I really enjyed my stay. The hotel presents well, particularly the bar and the garden, and the staff are very friendly. Good booze, good food and a friendly atmosphere (in keeping with what is a lovely part of town). A good spot and a good location, I'd go again. Thank you!

I am usually very forgiving as a customer having spent over a third of my life working in or managing bars, restaurants and hotels and so know how some days are tough. However as much as I love this establishment for it's beautiful bar and garden the food and service is horrendous. My friends and I today enjoyed a few... More

Made a visit to Channings to make preparations for an event I was organising at the venue. The manager on duty could not find the time to see me to discuss the arrangements so decided to stay for some food. One of our orders was incorrect, all of them arrived cold and at different times. I then called a day... More

We cannot comment on the hotel rooms or the food as we have not sampled them,however we have used the bar approx once a week around 10.30 pm for coffee not for alcoholic drinks as we have a longish motorway drive home On this occasion we were told sorry no coffee as they had no milk! we strongly felt that...

Went here with a large group of people for a celebratory business lunch. I can honestly say that the food and service was the worst I have ever encountered in the South West (or anywhere else for that matter). It took 50 minutes from the first order to arrive to the last one...so some people had to leave without even... More

We stayed at The Channings when we visited our son who is studying at Bristol University. The hotel is ideally located for the University, Clifton & Bristol Zoo. It is close to Clifton Down train station. All within walking distance. We stayed in a family room on the top floor. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean with option... More

Very pleasant stay. Staff are really friendly and go the extra mile. Will definitely return. On the downside it needs facilities for disabled eg. Ramp, lift and loo. Pub food pretty standard and reasonable priced. Room was clean (a little too hot) Breakfast was enjoyable. 😄

Stay begin very well with a free upgrade to a double room having only booked a single online. The room was very clean and tidy with a good sized bathroom. Bar downstairs was pleasant with a good atmosphere. Walls between the rooms are very thin and you can hear everything in neighboring rooms. Managed a good nights sleep. This is... More

Booked last minute for NYE - thought the price was reasonable for a last minute stay in Clifton at £89. No car park but didn't struggle to park on the road outside the hotel. We walked through a nice bar to the reception where we were checked in. We were in room 29 which was on the top floor. The... More
