We popped up to Edinburgh for a flying visit at the end of March, and we were lucky enough to get a last minute room at Channings. We had stayed here before for our honeymoon in one of their 'Shackleton' suites, but this time I had just booked a basic double room. As before the staff were very friendly and... More

Birthday weekend break. Our room was upgraded to a club room free of charge which was a bonus. Massive bedroom, lounge and bathroom with separate shower. Welcoming staff, beautiful period decor, comfortable, excellent location and nothing too much trouble. Comfy beds, excellent breakfast serving breakfast and evening meals. You can eat in Shackletons or eat the cozy bar with coal... More

Quite simply a very beautiful hotel in a great location. We stayed in the Endurance suite on the top floor, which was very comfortable, if a bit too hot and stuffy when we first arrived but soon fixed by opening a couple of windows. Very nice space with a large bathroom and rolltop bath - couldn't really fault the room... More

Another fabulous review for Channings - and Kevin sends his regards - apologies for the slowness of the lift but there is little we can do to speed it up, I'm afraid. Leon Kiteley General Manager More

Once again a pleasant weekend staying in Edinburgh. A few minor boggles, the room was very warm on arrival but once we got the windows open we were fine. And the stair carpet needs replacing! But otherwise friendly, helpful staff comfortable beds and delicious breakfast thanks

This is our third stay at the hotel- recommendation enough? Came for our 25th wedding anniversary. The online booking was simple and efficient and also enabled me to book champagne, flowers and chocolates. The attention to detail best epitomised by email contact to check flower choice and confirm all ok. Complimentary upgrade to a suite made the stay ans lovely... More

No real complaints about staying here, staff were welcoming and on the ball, room was a good size if a little too warm. Minor complaint about the lack of power points for charging etc, and had to sit the kettle on the floor to reach its nearest socket. Ate in the hotel restaurant one evening and had a lovely meal,...

Spent two nights at the Channing Hotel, Edinburgh. We both had a wonderful time. I booked a small double room which was ideal for our purposes. The bed was very comfortable. The Hotel is situated on a quiet street. It took us approx 10 minutes to walk to the City Centre, but there is a frequent bus service located nearby... More

Nice stay at this hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Excellent restaurant and really good breakfast. Piping hot water and just so comfortable. Plenty of parking on the streets around the hotel.
