    We booked the hotel last minute, we were staying in Edinburgh for a few days. I have worked near to Channnings for over ten years and new the standard of the meals. The room we had was amazing - staff and service was so good. I would stay at the hotel every weekend if I could.Thank you

    Cosy and beautiful hotel with very helpfull and friendly staff. Very quiet location, but within walking distance from the center.

    It was unusually warm weather during our stay and no air conditioning in the room so it was hot. Bathroom slightly outdated.

  • Older travelers

    Staff were friendly and helpful, and it was most comfortable. Breakfast was very good and was served up until 10am, so could have a lie in.

    One slight problem for us was that the lift did not go down to the bar and restaurant, but we managed.

    The whole stay was wonderful but we were upgraded to a suite which was just lovely. The room was very large and the bathroom was huge with a bath big enough for 2! Scott the Concierge is so helpful and he really made our stay perfect. He goes beyond the call of duty to help and is a real credit to the Channings. You wont be disappointed with this hidden gem in Edinburgh and it is about a 10 min walk to city centre

    Nice view of gardens from room, enjoyed the jacuzzi bath tub, helpful staff and good cooked breakfast, room was lovely and quiet

    Not so much a complaint just a comment-would be nice if rooms had dvd players as £7.95 was quite steep to rent a movie from the television

  • Older travelers

  • Family with children

    Room very clean as was the travel cot, very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast staff very friendly and helpful giving a family atmosphere. Reception staff very friend but could have been more explanatory over parking and way into city.
