On booking our room at Channings I had requested a romantic room and that is what we got. We walked into a large comfortable and very cosy room with the biggest bathroom I have ever seen! In one corner a wet room with massive shower and in the other corner a roll top bath. All decorated very tastefully.
Breakfast was gorgeous with attentive, friendly staff. With daily papers in the lounge area every morning, we relaxed for an hour, reading and deciding what to do for rest of day.
We ordered room service one night and half an hour later it arrived, hot and very tasty. No complaints about the food or the staff. One morning after a late night we hung the do not disturb sign on door. Reception rang the room about 11am to check if we wanted room cleaned, I said no thank you and when we eventually left the room, there was a bag outside with clean towels and loo rolls in it! Very thoughtful.
The hotel is round the corner from a main bus route if you don't fancy the 15 minute walk into town. Taxis were only £5 onto Princes Street.
The only small complaint I have is that the lighting could have been better over the mirror, as I struggled putting on my war paint!
All in all we had a fabulous, romantic stay at The Channings and would definately stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Channings in Edinburgh is an informal, relaxed hotel with a very friendly approach. It occupies five Edwardian townhouses in Stockbridge, one of Edinburgh's most popular 'urban villages'. To suit its location slightly away from the city centre, Channings is a wonderfully quirky property which feels a bit like a Scottish country home, full of charming Victorian paintings, prints, books, furniture and memorabilia that owner Peter Taylor has collected over the years. ... more less
