I last stayed in Channings over a year ago, was a regular stayer, and thought it great. I returned and found it to be under new management. The staff are super friendly and super helpful. The menu is very inventive and very reasonable. I stayed in a different room this time which was spotless and the bed and pillows were... More

The garden is full of broken wooden garden furniture, nobody bothers to clear glasses or empty Crisp packets off the tables so seaguls are walking over to tables looking for scraps.the basement bar area is filthy with a dirty courtyard outside, ripped sofas inside, and dirty glasses.yuck I can't believe they haven't been closed down.

Stayed one night while visiting relative nearby. Staff were helpful, letting me leave luggage in a secure place when I arrived before check-in time and fixing TV for me after I had accidentally de-tuned it. Single room was quiet with spacious bathroom. Excellent full cooked breakfast, with cereal and toast and offer of more orange juice and tea. This is... More

We chose to go to Channings for lunch today, having a guest with us. We asked what the roast of the day was, and turkey was the only option, so two of us ordered that. The food was quite long coming, so we thought it should be fresh, but we were in for a bad surprise. For the fish and... More

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.
