Charming hotel, a little outside the city centrePosted Nov 18, 2014
We stayed for two nights over our anniversary in November. We picked the standard double room because the room looked elegant with a lovely old style roll top bath in the pictures. When we got there the room was lovely but there was no roll top bath so I enquired about this and they said they would upgrade is to a suite for our second night stay, which was very good of them. The suite had a lovely bathroom although the original bedroom was nicer. So a word of advice, be specific in what you want when booking! They have over 40 individual style rooms apparently. It is a 20 minute walk from George street and in a peaceful part of town, a taxi is £6-10 to town. The breakfast was tasty and substantial with a reasonable selection. Staff were very friendly, polite and accomodating. Overall; a lovely hotel if you don't mind the walk in to town.

Good, quiet location.Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The pleasant and friendly atmosphere and proximity to the centre.
Location: Close to the bus stops with a regular service to town. This is a quiet residential area.
A quiet location but not too far out of the centre. A pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Some noise affected my room e.g. early morning vacuum cleaning in the public area. Also the restaurant/bvar area ought to be warmer.

Nice!Posted Oct 5, 2014
It was a nice hotel. The room was comfortable and the staff was nice. The wi-Fi was unreliable and the tv lacked many channels, but the bed was comfortable and the bathtub was very nice. We couldn't seem to control the water temperature in our room but we only took one shower so I'm not sure whether that was our fault or not.

Loved the StayPosted Sep 2, 2014
Cons: Better vegetarian selection on room service
Location: Didn't get time to explore as I was on business but will definately be going back.
Loved the bathroom in 'Discovery' and staff where friendly and helpful. Will definately go back again on pleasure rather than business and stay longer next time.

A Terrific FindPosted Aug 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a wonderful stay at The Channings Hotel. It was situated in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to Edinburgh Castle and other major sights. The staff was friendly and most helpful in assisting with directions and/or calling taxis for us. Our two room suite was clean, comfortable and offered a lovely view of the park across the street. We really enjoyed our stay and would most definitely return!
