Room quite small but adequate for 1 night stay. Ate in restaurant on night & had good meal. Bar area is good & nice beer garden at front of hotel. Breakfast ok. Friendly staff. Liked location will consider returning to Channings in future.

Had a one night stay in this hotel, the receptionist at check in couldn't have been more helpful she was excellent. Room was clean and nicely decorated although there could have more toiletries in the bathroom. Apparently we could have had a free breakfast if we had filled in vouchers but we weren't told this until breakfast was over, it... More

This hotel is in a fine building in a lovely area of Bristol, the room was a good size and had a bright bathroom. Breakfast was only included by messing about with vouchers and even then we had to haggle to get it. There was no provision of anything gf and no real understanding of what that meant, also had...

Popped in on a Sunday for a spot of lunch. It's had a refurb since we last came here and it is a lovely bar area. But unfortunately that's about the only good thing going for it. If they put as much effort into the general running of the place as they have the décor I would have rated it... More

This is about the channings pub. I've never stayed in the hotel but I don't want to. I came here on the 22nd of June and I'm mentioning that so the manager can see who was working in the evening (6.30pm) it was awful. The girl didn't even open our wine we had to ask for a cork screw then... More

The family room was very spacious. Staff especially the manager was very helpful and accommodating. The only thing I would say is that the place doesn't have parking and that despite the room was spacious it was rather too hot and the window wasn't so easy to open therefore poor ventilation. Apart from that, I am happy to recommend this... More

We were very pleased with the service the staff at The Channings Hotel gave us over our recent one night stay. They were welcoming, polite, friendly and went above what was required of them to accommodate us. This was our first night away from home with a very little baby and their efforts contributed to the experience of the trip... More

I found the staff here to be very helpful, the food was good and the room clean and presentable. It's true the rooms are a tad tired, and not very soundproofed. However I did enjoy a good stay here. The real problems I had were parking, there is very little on site, and the local streets are choked with parked... More

The staff are very friendly, the room was clean and the location is great, but it was downhill from there. The walls are very thin and a loud party went on next door and despite our requests they carried on till 5 in the morning, we could hear every word. There is no one on the desk to complain to....
