I booked my colleagues into this hotel for an overnight stay and their feedback was very positive. They said that the rooms were lovely and the beds were comfortable. They had a very good nights sleep which they needed ahead of a busy day. Just be aware that you have to pay for parking on the road by the meter...

Booked channings as a last minute room. Opted for a superior double. Hubby and I were shown to a ground floor four poster room. Good impressions so far. Very large bath but only a small soap for toiletries. Two fixed shower gels on wall of bathroom, but after seeing that the hotel used the white company I was rather looking...

We booked in for three nights over a weekend. Parking is only on-street but if you get there on a Friday afternoon you only have to cover the period up to 5.30pm, after that parking is free until Monday morning when you will have to cover the period from 8.30am until you leave. Parking is £1 per hour so no...

Excellent hotel with great views looking over parts of the city,The breakfast is 1st class and staff are really polite and helpful. It will take you 10-15 mins walk to the city centre. The room had a huge bay window with a great view and was very clean and comfy (queen size bed).

We booked a Jr Suite for 2 nights it was well located for restaurants and bars (but not too close!) and only a bus ride to the royal mile and attractions (bus stop literally around the corner) On arrival there was limited parking outside but I think this was due to the road being partially blocked by road works The...

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
