Channings Hotel Overview

The Channings Edinburgh Hotel is located off Queensferry road, approximatley a 10 minute stroll from Edinburgh’s centre. History would have it that the Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton used to live in this property. Nowadays the exact location of his abode would be where the hotel’s library is found. Guest bedrooms are all individually decorated in striking and elegant combinations of textured fabrics, providing a comfortable and relaxing base for your stay. Rooms all include the modern amenities that one could expect from a hotel of its class, including en-suite bathroom and Internet access. The hotel has facilities for conferencing and banqueting, a professional restaurant team and a sophisticated wine bar.

6/10 Good

Nice hotel shame about the staff

6 in Total stayed over the Edinburgh Marathon weekend. Mixed views really. Hotel itself nice and rooms were a good standard. Food served was lovely but bar staff and breakfast staff really hard work. We spent alot of money in total at the hotel over the 3 rooms and I dont think we once got a smile. Asked for a drink to be changed and they refused so this side of things did disappoint us. We didn't let it ruin the weekend and front of house staff were very helpful.

The best thing about my stay was...

Quality of food
10/10 Amazing

Warm welcome, room service punctual (said 20 mins and duly arrived) Food good and warm. Huge bathroom with freestanding bath and walk in shower. Television was a bit dated, but functional. As this is a green thinking hotel, you have to turn the TV off as it does not remain on stand by. Very quiet, good decor and good selection of fresh produce at breakfast.

The best thing about my stay was...

Peace & quiet - little traffic as you are situated away from the main road.
