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). The hotel is about a 10/15 min relatively flat walk (depending on how strong the wind is blowing) to Prince's road which was fine for us but might be a hassle for those with difficulty walking, the...

We booked to come last minute as we were meeting friends and wanted to stay over. We were so pleased with this hotel. It was comfortable and clean. Our room was spacious and had a nice view. Breakfast was delicious. It was made to order and came piping hot. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would gladly return.

We had a 'superior' room on the 1st floor and it was fine, very comfortable with all facilities. I would recommend this hotel for it's overall quality (two exceptions) throughout the establishment, also the friendliness of the staff. The breakfasts were good, with a vegetarian cooked option. My only qualms were about the basement bar area which needs to be...

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
