Spent a delightful few days at this comfortable hotel. Staff all very friendly, the room was spacious and comfortable. Quietly situated within walking distance of the city centre. Public rooms had a quiet refined atmosphere with open fires. Breakfast was generous and a good choice at dinner. The bar/restaurant was very friendly. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

I have recently returned from a trip to Edinburgh with my boyfriend, where we stayed at the Channings Hotel. We really enjoyed our stay, from the cosy and relaxing atmosphere to the big and comfy bed! We thought the staff were all very welcoming and polite and we really enjoyed the delicious Scottish Breakfast each morning (a definite must try!).... More

My third stay at Channings. Was upgraded to a small suite which was very spacious and well equipped. Comfortable bed. Good location with good access into city centre. Excellent breakfast with good quality ingredients. Staff were very friendly - particularly Kevin who served breakfast and was very efficient. Will definitely used again

Recently stayed in Channing's hotel. Staff were excellent, really warm and friendly. Great location, short walking distance to Princes Street. Very much recommend. When we come back to Edinburgh, we'll be staying in Channing's.

This was our first time in Edinburgh so we didn't really know where to stay, we chose Channings because they had great rates for their luxury rooms and the location was convenient enough and only a 20min taxi ride to the airport. Channings is a really understated hotel from the outside, however, it is cosy and quietly charming on the... More

Clean, cosy and very friendly staff. Lots of character in the hotel, from grand beds to stand alone baths. Shower was a bit unpredictable in our room, however, the bathroom was huge! Nice location, 20 minutes walk to princes street and right by the 37 bus route which takes you into the centre. Bar food was pretty standard but the... More

This was a really pleasant stay from the first warm welcome and the quality of the lunch we had in the downstairs brasserie through to the final bill. Would definitely recommend for those wanting something capturing the elegance of Edinburgh's terraced stone streets and slightly away from the traffic, but still within 10 minutes brisk walk of the west end...
