How well we were looked after on Sunday. We were celebrating a 60th Wedding Anniversary and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We weren't hurried away when a group of us just wanted to sit around talking afterwards. Thanks to all the staff

Channings appears to have had almost a complete change of staff since we last visited, and the bar has been refurbished, which was long over-due (doesn't quite continue the 'Town House' theme, but that's just really a quibble). I'm pleased to say that, with the notable exception of the member of staff in the restaurant who seemed to be chewing... More

After deciding very last minute that we needed a wee break, I made contact with Jamie at Channings who was wonderfully efficient, helpful and determined to get us to stay at the hotel. After negotiating a good rate inclusive of dinner, breakfast and wine, I booked up. Upon arrival at the hotel we checked in smoothly and then made our... More

We stayed at Channings for 2 nights prior to an Isle of Skye tour and then again for one night after, before heading home. This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are beautiful, ours had a wonderful view of Fettis University and the city. It is a 20 minute walk to the center, or a short bus ride. Hotel has... More

We were at the Channings Hotel on Fri 4th July for a wedding and I can honestly say that the staff were great, nothing was to much trouble for them.

My son and I stayed three nights in june, and we had a wonderfull stay. We had a suite on 2. floor overlooking the pretty surroundings. We found the hotel just perfect, and the staff were nice and attentive.

Really clean; all staff exceptionally friendly and accommodating; great view from bedroom window; delicious breakfast; good hot water; comfy, clean bed and sheets. I arrived late and staff went out of their way to ensure I got something to eat just as kitchen closing. Couldn't fault it!

Initial appearance is that of several lovely old brownstones converted to a hotel. However Any nice external appearance soon vanishes. Floors squeak. Walls appear to be paper thin, hearing noises from adjacent room all night. Shower water temperature fluctuates from scalding to freezing every few seconds. The wifi disconnects every minute or so, requiring logging in again. The staff was... More

A great hotel! The positives - nice size room, comfy bed, excellent service from staff, tasty breakfast and nice food/drinks from the bar downstairs. Also our 1 year old son was well accommodated. The negatives - the room needed a lick of paint, just to bring it up to top standard. The hotel is a little walk out of town... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Channings in Edinburgh is an informal, relaxed hotel with a very friendly approach. It occupies five Edwardian townhouses in Stockbridge, one of Edinburgh's most popular 'urban villages'. To suit its location slightly away from the city centre, Channings is a wonderfully quirky property which feels a bit like a Scottish country home, full of charming Victorian paintings, prints, books, furniture and memorabilia that owner Peter Taylor has collected over the years. ... more   less
