Highly recommended: warm. comfortable, clean, fresh, peaceful at night, a very pleasant ten minute walk to shops and restaurants. Also an excellent breakfast. In addition, there was no intrusive aircon, just cosy radiator central heating and opening windows if fresh air required.

A very warm and cosy hotel. The staff were all welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were very well presented and bed real comfy, and as for the bathroom suite it was amazing. we will certainly be returning in the summer.

This hotel is in a great location, quiet ,comfortable with lovely staff and great breakfast too. Easy slight uphill walk into Edinburgh but we stayed in Stockbridge in the evening to explore the very good pubs with food - lots to choose from. Going back with my Daughter next week for another stay.

This was our honeymoon, they had champagne delivered to our room and they also upgraded us to one of their superior rooms. The bar and restaurant downstairs had great food and friendly staff. The sea bass was delicious! A good location only about 10-15 mins walk to downtown

I stayed at The Channing Hotel with my boyfriend to see the new year in at the Hogmanay festival (which I highly recommend).

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
