We spent a weekend at the hotel while we were furnishing a new flat we had bought in Edinburgh. From the very friendly receptionist who checked us in, we felt comfortable. The street outside is quiet so no disturbance during the night. Parking was not a problem either. The hotel is nice - if a little faded by time -... More

A lovely review and my thanks to this guest - I am sorry to hear that the steak was a little tough and will address this with Adam, Head Chef, but rest assured we do not use "frozen chips"! Leon Kiteley General Manager More

Just got back from a wonderful stay at the Channings, my husband booked a four night stay as my birthday treat, and what a treat it was. From the moment we arrived everything was perfect, the room was large and beautifully decorated, all the staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. First class hotel my husband could not...

Stayed in Channings for 3 nights with friends celebrating my birthday. Could not have had a better place to stay. The hotel is lovely, great location to walk into Princess St., the staff could not be more helpful and the food was excellent. We treated ourselves to lunch at a famous 5* restaurant up near the castle which was good... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a Christmas break to Edinburgh, and used airmiles to pay for it. The hotel is slightly out of the centre - for us, it was a 10 minute walk to the top end of Princes Street (25 minutes to the Royal Mile). It cost about £7 for a taxi from the station.... More

We have had a lovely stay in this lovely cosy hotel just 5-10minutes walk from Princes Street. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast range was fantastic. Something for everyone. Our room was nicely decorated and comfortable. Only thing I will say is I wish there had been more light in the room as I like to read.... More

My wife and I started visiting Channings 10 years ago, and have been back at least once every year since. We are just back from two nights and once more it delivered exactly what we expected - and more. The more came thanks to a room upgrade, where we were fortunate enough to stay in the "Discovery" suite. We had... More

We booked one of the petite double rooms for our stay thinking that we might end up finding the bed a few centimetres from the open door and having to creep around the bed to get in but were really pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the room. Nicely decorated and really comfortable bed. At complete odds with... More

Booked this hotel for a couple of nights in Edinburgh; wanted a quiet location but close to city centre. This was excellent. The room was large, well appointed - possibly one of the best we have stayed in; however, the route to the roof was alittle tortuous. The gereral decoration was very good and there were references to Shackleton -... More

A lovely foyer with warm fires and a nice traditional feel to the whole place. The room was nice, and good for the cheap price. The Breakfast was a severe let down with the cooked food being of awful quality, and although included in the price we ate elsewhere for our second night. Overall though a nice hotel but could...

After what felt like a lifetime trying to find the place,we arrived to roaring fires in the social areas,which are beautiful and very cosy.we then went on to our room which is where the disappointment started,it was very dated to the point of looking dirty and shabby.this was an overnight stay for my 30th birthday and I felt I would...

Having read this review can I urge all travellers (not just at Channings) to bring to the attention of the management any dissatisfaction there and then? Rather than wait to get home and address online.. If you speak to us immediately we can and will try our hardest to put things right - if you wait until you check out,... More
