Nice hotel great locationNice hotel. The hotel layout is slightly confusing but I think this is due to how Edinburgh old town is designed and the hotel is working best with this situation. The room was spotlessly clean and fresh towels were provided daily. The room is spacious with plenty of storage. The room also has tea ...

Close to airportThis was a good choice after spending time in Edinburgh and before a morning flight. The room was comfy and clean, bathroom was also clean, no hair conditioner (which was a shame). It was a relief to find such a nice, reasonably priced restaurant on site. Our food was very good.

Perfect location for tourists.Edinburgh is such a beautiful city. So much to see, we needed more time, 3 days not enough.

Comfortable, clean, friendly.We stayed for two nights and found the Channing to be adequate for our needs. The room was big and easily accommodated a third person. The cafe was a little disappointing as the food was average. The downside of this was that the hotel is not close to any pubs or restaurants.

Edinburgh Adventure Hotel Guide

Staying in Edinburgh isn’t just about sightseeing (unless you want it to be - of course). There is more to this famous city than meets the eye. With Scotland’s 'Golf Coast' on the doorstep in East Lothian and a variety of offbeat adventures to be had within the city you might be surprised by what’s on offer. Booking your perfect accommodation is easy with Expedia.

Adventurous Activities in Edinburgh

While it’s unlikely you will be abseiling down Edinburgh Castle anytime soon, Edinburgh has a vibrant climbing community. There are impressive indoor climbing centers in Granton and Ratho - the latter is the largest indoor climbing wall in the world! The Edinburgh International Climbing Arena also boasts Europe’s largest suspended aerial adventure rope course.

No trip to Edinburgh would be complete without a game of paintball. OK that’s not true, but it’s there if you want it. Head to the indoor centre on Leith Walk or the outdoor area just outside the city in South Queensferry for some colourful simulated combat.

The city is also within easy reach of the Pentland Hills, making it a great place for hikers and runners to base themselves. Hillend Dry Ski Slope is a handy place for skiers.
