The fan in the bathroom... More

The bedrooms (we had two) were large with comfortable beds and the breakfast was excellent. Although I would like to award 5 stars I am only awarding 4 stars due to our experience one evening. We went to the Military Tattoo and the weather was dreadful - windy with non-stop torrential rain. We arrived back at the hotel soaked through,... More

Me and a friend stayed at the Channings Hotel in Edinburgh over the weekend. We checked in after midnight and I was immediately impressed by the gentleman, Kevin, on the front desk. Amazing customer service, something that is somewhat rare. The room was very clean and well appointed. Would recommend it and would most certainly stay again!

Staying at Channings Hotel was indeed a very positive experience. The room was first class with a huge and delightful bath room. The breakfast room was lovely, and the breakfast menu was rich and appealing. The staff was noticeably friendly and helpful. Furthermore - in our view Channings Hotel has a quite central and good location. We surely wouldn't mind... More

We were a family of three who shared one room. We had 2 single beds and a roll away added for the three of us. The room was actually a large combination sitting room and bedroom which could be closed off from the sitting area. It was very roomy which was nice since there were three adults with a suitcase...

My husband and I stayed here for one night and were really happy with our visit. We booked late so upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find out our room had a private jacuzzi!

My husband and I stayed in a nice double room with a view of the back garden. The bedroom was small, but the bathroom was huge! Wi-Fi is free, but parking is tricky - on-street only. We got a parking ticket the first morning we were there because we overslept (jet-lag) and didn't get to the parking meter in time.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are sorry to hear you got a parking fine! The downside t being in a lovely quiet residential area is unfortunately the limited parking. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the surrounding neighbourhood. We hope you'll stay with us again soon. Kind Regards,... 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'. 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
