Situated in a quiet road but close to good bus routes into the city centre. Large clean room with en-suite bathroom (quirky basin tap and low-power shower). Very good restaurant with tasty food (except the bread & butter pudding!) reasonably priced. Excellent breakfast with good selection of food and best mushrooms I've had in a long time. This hotel has... More

Got a last minute deal on trivago, inclusive of breakfast. The rooms are well sized, bathrooms have a nice bit bath and the beds were very comfortable. The only downside is that parking is a hassle if you're staying near the hotel through the day but with free parking 5.30 - 8.30 on the street it hasn't massively impacted us.... More

Stayed here for three night in august going to the tattoo and fringe events. Lovely comfortable bed and clean nice bathroom. The hotel is on outskirts of town in a lovely quiet residential area but within walking distance from the main area of the town. Pleasant staff and nice welcoming hotel, not a large hotel but more than enough for... More

Many thanks to this guest for their wonderful review of Channings Hotel, and I am glad to learn that they had such a wonderful time in Edinburgh. I noted that they mentioned they did not have any food so I must pose the question; why ever not? Our new Shackleton's lunch and dinner menus offer the very best of Scottish... More

We stayed here on our last night in Edinburgh. It's a nice, quiet location but not a far walk (maybe 15-20 mins) to the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Our room was clean and the sitting areas downstairs were very inviting. We were able to store our luggage in a secure room while we went and explored the... More

This is one of the finest hotel at the heart of Edinburgh. Good service, amazing rooms, awesome breakfast buffet. It is one of the finest heritage hotels. I loved staying there and would definitely like to visit again.

We booked this hotel during the first week of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and although most hotels appears to hike prices, we weren't convinced Channings represented a 4 star hotel or value for money. We redeemed some Avios points to help pay but we still paid £150 per night B&B for a two night stay. Like many on here we... More

Unpretentious and very well located - away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but close to public transport for a quick ride to the tourist attractions. Clean, comfortable rooms and a decent breakfast with attentive staff. Very good value for money.
