Channings is superbly located in the new town, close to Stockbridge, which has a lovely row of shops and eating places. Hotel is in a row of Georgian terraces. It is a short walk across Dean Bridge into Princes St but lots of cafes and restaurants on way in and out. Very comfortable room with bath and fabulous breakfast included.... More

Enjoyed a nice 3 night break at Channings, the room was lovely and of a good size. Set in a really nice part of Edinburgh it's really convenient for getting around on foot, by bus and taxi. Also no shortage of fabulous bars and top quality restaurants nearby.

The bed was nice and comfy and there were plugs either side of the bed so easy to charge mobile phones, tablets etc. The room was a decent size, telly in a sensible place, tea/coffee making facilities. The bar was reasonably priced (and I was made the "best hot chocolate in the World" (and it really was!) and breakfast was... More

Warm and welcoming hotel with lovely accommodations. This boutique style hotel sits on a quiet street. It's been restores nicely and has lovely bay windows. The room service was amazing. We had the pigeon starter, crayfish linguine and nachos and I highly recommend. I am sure anything from the menu is delightful. It was all very reasonably priced with a... More

The hotel was in a good location, not too far from city centre (around 20 minute walk). There is plenty of onstreet parking available at £1.20p/hour but the meter only runs between 8:30am-5:30pm so not too expensive. The hotel is situated in a nice, quiet street on the outskirts of town. There are local shops within a few minutes walk.... More

We enjoyed the stay. Our room was small, but nice, breakfast was good, and the staff was friendly. We booked the day of as we decided to detour in to Scotland from London for a show, so our choices were limited, but I'm sure if you book ahead of time there will be better room options than our small room....

We stayed at the Channings for three nights and found it to be a very pleasant hotel. The center is in walking distance, so is Stockbridge - a very nice an cosy part of Edinburgh. The reception area is done up very nicely and stylish. Our room was quite big and everything was working well. The staff at reception was... More

Wonderful to be back. My Channings experience started when I called the week before my visit to ask if I could have room 3 again as it is on the ground floor and quiet, therefore ideal for a post nighttime marathon with associated aches and need for sleep! A very friendly receptionist apologized that this room was undergoing refurbishment but... More

We should have realized that our stay was not going to meet expectation based upon our check in experience. The answers and information provided raised more questions than addressed our questions. Parking is an issue as it is on street parking which is very limited. The elevator malfunctioned and we had luggage and golf clubs to carry. The room was... More
