On arrival the front of the hotel was very attractive, the reception area attractive, but immediately apparent that the hotel was in need of some tlc due to the main staircase carpet looking very worn. All staff were helpful and friendly during our 3 night stay. Our room was bright with a beautiful big bay window on the second floor... More

We have just returned from a fabulous weekend in Edinburgh celebrating my husbands 40th birthday and what a fantastic time we had. Channings hotel was spotless and all the staff were brilliant nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was lovely a good choice all round, even tried haggis at breakfast. Thanks everyone for making our visit special x

Four nights there recently. Head for Edinburgh twice yearly, and can write a book about satisfactory (not many) and dreary places. Channings was very different. A sort of romantic charm which is typical of the placid area (not stylish Stockbridge but Comely Bank of Georgian architecture). The hotel has many art-nouveau features, indeed every room on the ground floor or... More

Had a wonderful couple of days in Edinburgh. Hotel staff friendly, room clean and comfortable. The hotel was situated in in a good location. Breakfast was done well and I found the price reasonable. Thank you for a good stay

I wish I had taken more notice of the negative reviews of this hotel; they are much more accurate. I find it fascinating that any positive review of this hotel is acknowledged by the manager whilst negative reviews are ignored. The people who run this hotel are arrogant and do nothing to solve problems which in my experience include; •... More

Channings is an attractive city hotel with character and the service was good. Breakfast was done well and the price we paid for a double room was extremely fair. In fact we were upgraded to a junior suite with out asking. When we needed to spend an extra night we were accommodated at the same rate. It is situated on... More

I stayed here on a business trip and it's in a great location and is handy for getting around the city. It's quite a quiet area so not too much noise. The rooms are a very good size and have everything you need for a leisure or business stay. I would say that the rooms could definitely do with a... More

Booked into Channings for our last night in Edinburgh before leaving back to France. Upgraded to the top-floor suite: Endeavour. A wonderful touch of history: Ernest Shackelton lived here a century ago and he's one of my all-time heroes as an explorer and as a people manager. Images and reminders are all over the hotel. Room was comfortable with black-out... More

My advice would be; don’t stay at Channings! This is the first hotel I have ever checked out of because it was totally unsatisfactory. You can read my sorry tale below but in summary; the hotel offers relatively expensive rooms that are uninhabitable when the weather turns warm. The staff and management largely ignore your complaints and do nothing to... More

We got off our flight into Edinburgh at 6:30 am. Armed with our luggage and very little sleep we headed to Channings planning to stow our bags and find some place to sit until our room was ready. When we got to the hotel, we were treated to breakfast while our room was made up, we got in a nap... More
