Catered for most types of palates... We're very friendly and welcoming. Offered my partner a taste of the whiskeys as he didn't know which one he wanted. Specially made me a non alcoholic cocktail. Very nice people serving there and good food.

We had amazing time staying at the Channings. The suite was beautiful. Staff so warm and welcoming. The breakfast was amazingly delicious would certainly recommend people to stay here. Hope to stay here again. Can't praise this establishment enough.

Lovely and quaint setting on a residential street but we'll within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Helpful staff and a special treat of afternoon tea is available for the asking. The chocolate truffles are the crowning glory to tea. A must experience when in Edinburgh. :0)

The hotel is beautiful and located close to local transportation, quite, clean, and the staff was extremely helpful. A beautiful garden across the street to be able to enjoy the beauty of local flowers. The food was delicious.

This is a beautiful hotel in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The only negative is that it is not walking distance to City Centre. Either take a taxi or the City Bus which is a very short walk to the bus stop.

Hotel is professionally run, with staff manning a desk all day in reception. Rooms are beautifully furnished. Bathrooms are very large with huge baths, which are not that easy to climb out of! Excellent breakfast with fresh croissants etc. Parking is a big problem- we had to park 1 mile away- unless you are willing to pay meter charges. Some... More

Great place to spend the weekend in Edinburgh - comfortable bed, powerful shower, spacious lounge area, reasonable price, professional service and central location - all in the former residence of explorer, Ernest Shackleton.

We spent 6 very enjoyable days in Edinburgh at the beginning of September. Channings Hotel is very well located for exploring the city on foot and it was always a pleasure to return to our spacious comfortable room after a busy day sightseeing. We were interested in the Shackleton connection and felt that the hotel could make more of this.... More

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'. 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 reflecting the history of previous tenant Sir Ernest Shackleton. ... more   less
