Stayed one night for a business trip. The food was superb could'nt fault it! A nice selection of local real ales as well. Really enjoyed my evening meal just what I needed. Staff were friendly and accomodating and the bed was very comfortable, slept very well!

Paid £135.98 for one night. Bar area and garden decorated nicely,but our room was dreadful small and very dated. Breakfast is very unorganised and felt like we were in a cheap cafe. Def wouldn't recommend this hotel, which is a shame because it could be a fab place

A long wait to be checked in by a quite disinterested manager. We were asked to pay at check-in and I can see why, as I would not have paid the asking price after spending the night. A beautiful building and the bar area is nicely decorated, but rooms feel like an afterthought. It is a very long time since... More

I've eaten here on and off the last 2 weeks and have heard three, yes THREE, people send their food back during this time. I didn't have a problem until last night when the veg and half the lamb was cold. The waitress was very good about it and asked me if I'd like anything instead, but I declined as... More

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
