I booked Channings for a weekend away with my wife for our anniversary.
I had organised a nice meal out followed by tickets to see Phantom of the Opera at the playhouse and was looking for somewhere to stay to round off the night.
I came across Channings via a friend who had recommended it, and after having a look over the website was very intrigued and booked.
We stayed in one of the Junior suites on the top floor and everything was just perfect. As soon as we got there we were warmly welcomed by the staff who after checking us in then showed us to the room.
The hotel on arrival from the outside looks quite small when inside was very impressed with its size, it is I believe set across 4 or 5 townhouses in the old west end of town. The reception is welcoming and spacious so you have a kind of sense of home from home, which is nice so many hotels just feel like you are just another guest but at Channings it felt like you were going to stay with friends by the nice lounge as you walk in and a quaint reception area.
The room itself as mentioned was on the top floor and was very nice (I believe we were in the Discovery Suite). The room was very spacious and very well decorated, also a lovely temperature as we went in, too many other hotels that I have stayed in seem very cold when you walked in but this was perfect. The bathroom was a full length wet room with a gorgeous self standing bath at one end and a shower area at the other. Both of which we tried out and both of which were lovely.
After going out to the show and on coming back we were again welcomed by the night staff, saw ourselves to bed and retired for the evening. Wanting a lazy Sunday morning we decided to opt for Breakfast in bed. We were not disappointed, it was out of this world!! Having stayed in many hotels I was not expecting much just a standard breakfast but I was very pleasantly surprised. Breakfast was just amazing, ( we had not had our dinner at Channings the previous night but on reflection of breakfast will certainly be dining there the next time we stay) We both had the full scottish and I opted for Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs it was out of this world, as was the Black Pudding which I would HIGHLY recommend.
Overall nothing I can fault about the hotel felt very comfortable here, a real home from home and a staff to be very proud of. 11/10 for sure and will be looking forward to staying again in the hopefully not too distant future!!
The Junior Suites are gorgeous if available!!!
