After a four night stay, my husband and I were sad to leave for home as we had enjoyed Channings so much. It is a hotel which is run quietly and efficiently by lovely staff at reception, in housekeeping and in the bar and brasserie. Without exception everyone was very friendly. Breakfast was ample with a great selection both of... More

We stayed in a junior suite for an impromptu weekend away. We arrived early but our room was ready and we were invited to check in. The receptionist was efficient but not warm. The room was very impressive in size and furnishings. The bed was large and comfortable and there was a sofa, 2 chairs, footstool, desk and side tables.... More

Tonight is our last night here and we'll be very sorry to leave. Our room on arrival was amazing but two radiators did not work and it was a tad cold. We were moved without hesitation to room 1,complete with 4 poster bed! The staff are all very friendly and welcoming, in particular Joe and Joanna. Have eaten in restaurant... More

We stayed here for 4 nights during the week and were well looked after, breakfast staff attentive and friendly. Food was delish and can highly recommend having an evening meal here. The room wasn't perfect, there were some marks on the wall and the ceiling but a good 4 star. It is a bit out of town but for the... More

Stayed here for several nights over the new year. Paid extra for deluxe room but ended up on the top floor in the "Quest" with only a view of the sky and a bathroom that was larger than the bedroom. If you have a choice get a deluxe room on the 1st or 2nd floor as they have a view... More

A mostly positive review for Channings Hotel and my thanks to this guest for their kind words. I am sorry that our Shackelton Rooms on the 3rd floor did not seem to appeal to this traveller as they are stunning, and there must be some confusion regarding our coffee offering as we do serve cappuccino, espress and lattes as well...

Lovely clean room, helpful staff....a really lovely place to stay and a gentle 10 minute walk to the West End of Princes Street. We had stayed here several years ago but this time the food wasn't as good. Breakfast was fine but nothing extraordinary...lovely smoked salmon though! Overall it was still really good value. We would definitely stay again but... More

Great to hear such positive overall feedback from this guest regarding their Channings experience and I am sorry to hear that, Smoked Salmon aside, they didn't feel the food offering was as great as last time - I will share your feedback with Adam, our Head Chef.

The staff were very nice, especially the catering staff The hotel is located a 30 minute walk from the centre. It's very easy to locate. The lowest cost room is small but reasonable for a short trip. The walls were not sound proof as we heard a noisy couple in the corridor. I would recommend breakfast as I didn't see... More

Another fantastic review for Channings Hotel and my thanks to this guest for their positive feedback. I am sorry they were disturbed by other guests, and I am surprised as we occupy 5 traditionally stone built Georgian Townhouses with relatively thick walls. Leon Kiteley General Manager More

My fiancé and I stayed here on a long weekend before Christmas. Greeted by a decadent Christmas tree and roaring fire in the lobby. The room was so luxurious - especially the gigantic bathroom, with a lovely bath and wet room style shower. Love the green credentials and the location is very peaceful.
