Having checked the hotel had a lift, we arrived to find it did not reach the dining or breakfast room. This needs to be made clear for people like me with mobility problems. The room was fine, food ordinary, staff helpful.

My husband and I and four other friends recently stayed in this excellent hotel whilst in Edinburgh to celebrate a friend's 60th birthday. We had all stayed in the hotel 10years previously and had such happy memories that we rebooked. Unfortunately we didn't have time to sample the delights of the restaurant but thoroughly enjoyed breakfast. We stayed in Endurance which was spacious and very comfortable. The only necessary addition would be some complementary bottled water in the room.

The hotel has real character! I have stayed many times and have always been impressed with the individuality rooms. Both the food served in the bar and restaurant is fantastic and incredibly reasonably priced. Only negative would be that some of the bathrooms have appeared tired (décor and towels) in comparison to the high quality of the bedrooms.

We were really looking forward to our return visit to Channings, with memories of gentleman's club style luxury. However, the past few years have taken there toll on this once quality hotel. The staff were helpful, though not sure about staff wearing canvas colourful boots and missing a concierge. We'd had a long drive so had a quick look at the room which looked ok but tatty around the edges and went for a walk on return the neglect became apparent. The bathroom tiles desperately need re grouting, the plug was broken and the knob used for making it go up and down fell off revealing the silicone glue used to stick it back. We were due to go out so just ignored it - though weren't happy. On return when we went to bed there was no light switch to be found on one side - this meant that you couldn't switch on the bathroom light without putting on all of the room lights, not very good at 3am on a toilet run! The mattress was solid, not firm just old and lumpy, like an old straw one. We eventually found the light switch in the morning - behind the headboard where you had to kneel on the bed and reach around. The bed is big! It must have been moved along the wall as it would be awkward to get in the room with it in place. Breakfast was ok but not the standard once seen. Avoid room 53 if you are going, but after recommending this hotel for years I would not do so again. Good staff who said they would sort the problems out for the next guest, however these are obvious problems that any good hotel would not allow to continue.

Room Tip: Do not take room 53

A very comfortable hotel with plenty of style. The room was large and very well appointed. The hotel is situated in a quiet and elegant residential road. Parking is available outside the hotel, but costs £1/hr, so they advise moving your car to an unrestricted road some 15 mins walk away after offloading if you do not intend to use it.
Breakfasts are first rate and the bar is a convivial place and the restaurant food is pretty good. The staff are excellent and tell you that the start of Princes Street is only a 10 min walk, but in reality it is a good 15-20 mins uphill (but relatively gentle) all the way.
