We had room 50, which is a lovely bright room with a delightful room. The room is very well equipped and furnished in period. The three course meal... More

Booked this as the wife had always wanted to go (a friend's dad owns it) and we got a very good deal on lastminute.com. It's in a lovely part of Edinburgh, down in Stockbridge. The room was just charming, loads of lovely old furniture, very comfy chairs and good facilities. The staff were brilliant and very helpful and the foyer... More

We spent a weekend in Channings and we were impressed by the location, which was good for us as we were visiting friends in Stockbridge, but we were also able to walk into the city centre in about 15 minutes. The staff were good, the breakfast was nice and the room was fine. The only point I would like Channings... More

We stayed in the Quest Suite, one of the superior rooms. Lovely large room and a bathroom larger than our bedroom at home, with a large roll top bath and powerful wet room shower. I liked the Shackleton theme to the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel on the Friday night, which was excellent. Breakfast was delicious and the... More

Usually I stay in the middle of town, but due to the Ryder cup, nothing was available. As it turns out I was pleased that was the case. Channings is ten minutes in a cab from George St. First impressions upon arriving are ok. After checking in (a very helpful chap called Matthew on reception) a tiny lift took me... More

This was the last hotel we stayed in on our honeymoon. The pay-for-parking was a little annoying, but it worked out. A little farther outside of downtown area than I had anticipated, but we were able to walk to the castle area within half an hour. Overall, nice stay.
