I had a very enjoyable short stay at Channings. I booked a special offer "Petite" double room and it was very good value for money. Rooms rarely resemble the photos on hotel websites but this time it didn't disappoint. The room was compact but had a comfortable double bed and was extremely quiet. The only gripe was that there wasn't always much hot water in the bathroom and the bath had no hand or grab rails. Staff were very friendly and the hotel had the feeling of a welcoming house rather than a faceless city four star. Breakfast was pretty good and the staff seemed to try to accommodate the most difficult of guests (of which there was one while I was there). It was a 10-15 minute walk to the end of Princes Street and about another 10 minutes to Waverley Station from there. It was a nice quiet location yet not too far out. I would certainly recommend it to friends and would return.
