The hotel is an older hotel but very nice. We liked our room. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was nicely updated. (A shower, claw-foot soaking tub, bidet, and nicely tiled.) It was all clean and comfortable. Only glitch...creaky floors. Not a huge issue but I was really self conscious moving around. Felt bad for anyone below us. We didn't...

Stay for £1 if you have breakfast and evening meal at the hotel. What a fantastic deal this was. We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our time in the hotel. Friendly, efficient staff, clean and comfortable rooms and excellent food. This is our second time at the hotel and we will almost certainly revisit. Watch out for the...

I like Channings. Being going here for over 15 years. It has a lovely feel, ad the views on the front over Edinburgh are great. Rooms a re a good size, well equipped and comfy... but getting a bit tired. Decoration a bit past it now. And no parking, so leaving my car on cobbles outside is costly. Can be...

This hotel was very lovely. Our room was fantastic! although the bed could use a pillow-top. The hotel was on the outskirts of the city center, so the trek was a bit of hassle HOWEVER, the 41 bus runs straight to the city center and its only a pound 20 for a pass of 4 pounds for an all day...

We stayed here to be close to family and thought it was good value for money in this interesting Stockbridge area. The building and furnishings are traditional, with big settees and open fires. There's a library. Breakfast was nice with friendly staff.

Stockbridge is on outskirts of city centre, but you can catch a bus from the top road or walk if dry weather! Very quiet area and hotel was welcoming after sight seeing all day. Would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for a 3 night short break. Overall we were happy with our stay at this hotel. It is very traditional which is part of its charm, although it is a bit worn and rough around the edges. Our room (48) was a little shabby,but was clean and had a lovely view out over the rooftops of Edinburgh....

I would highly recommend this boutique hotel for anyone looking to have a genuine Edinburgh experience. Unlike the bland hotel chains, you are staying in a building which has period features and old world charm, not to mention a cosy reception room with a fire! My bright room was very warm and looked over the pleasant back garden. My only...

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
