My partner and I have just spent an evening at the Channings Hotel, Bristol, for a single overnight stay whilst going to see a gig in town. In respect of Channings location, its far enough from the night time bustle of the city (if that is what you want) to have a quiet evening, but not so far away that... More

We booked on the day and the booking was fine. It was extremely noisy in the evening and the bed wasn't very comfortable but the water pressure in the shower was fine despite what we had read. I am more a fruit and yoghurt than cereal and fry up for breakfast but the cooked breakfast was good. Geographically it was... More

The channings hotel-we didn't even make it there, the responsible person for booking went on holiday and did not leave anybody in charge to control bookings so we were called on the day of our visit to be told that there was no room for us - and it was not even the hotel who phoned us! Disgusting service!

My partner and I have just returned from a 1 night stay at the channings. The rooms were spacious and comfy with all the modern conveniences expected. We had no problem with the cleanliness of the rooms (unlike previous reviewers) and everything was neat and tidy with no problems whatsoever. The bar downstairs is good with a range of ales... More

We stayed here to attend a wedding at the Merchant's Hall, Clifton, which was an easy walk away. Other hotels within the same radius were at least twice the price. The rooms were spacious and clean with immaculate bedding. We were able to check in early, with prior arrangement. Despite other reviews, our shower was hot and powerful. Some of... More

Would not recomend stay away better valie at travelodge or premier inn. Food over priced for what it is. No better than weatherspoons. Tooms havent been updated since the sixties. The shower didnt work and when it did it was like a babies dribble.

Stayed one night here in the family room which was the only room available.We were greeted really well upon arrival, friendly, polite and informative. The room was ok, comprising of a single bed and a really rather small double bed. The ensuite needed some attention. The basin taps were loose, toilet roll holder hanging off the wall on screws, just... More

Nice old building with a great outside area. Luckily the weather was nice so we sat outside in the lovely garden Plenty of ales for me to choose from and my guest opted for a Pimms, all well presented. The Team were really very friendly and were really helpful when we asked for directions to a couple of places. We... More

Not only best value in lovely Clifton but probably best value in the whole of Bristol. Most impressed how family friendly they were - set up a cot, offered to help with my bags, provided high chairs - an all round great stay. Like other happy reviewers I will be back.

I arrived to find a friendly old building and some very friendly staff on hand to check me in, answer all of my questions with a smile and a very down to earth attitude. A quick chat about the specials board and the cask ale and I was left in peace to eat and drink until I went outside. There... More
