From Simon in reservations, to meeting Scott Keenan, concierge extraordinaire at check-in, to Mario, Brianna, Agnes, Jamie at the Front Desk to the cheerful staff in housekeeping and the breakfast room and the staff in the bar and Channings restaurant, you'll find a home away from home at Channings. The location is only a 10 minute walk from the heart of Princes Street and is quiet in a residential neighborhood for peaceful sleep at night.

The room was clean, had all the amenities and the bed comfy. The view of the gardens was spectacular. We arrived for a Thanksgiving holiday and was in Edinburgh during the earliest and biggest snowfall in over 17 years! The staff were always professional, and cheerful in a very unusual situation.

While the furniture was not the sleekest and most modern, it didn't matter as the overall experience topped even 5-star properties I have stayed in over the years. It is the staff that counts the most, and this staff is superb! They all work together well and make you feel like you are the only person in the entire Inn. They made us feel like celebrities! I recommend them highly!

Lovely smaller Hotel. Fantastic guest areas and room was large, well appointed with everything you needed. In a quite area, so ideal if you want a relaxing Edinburgh break. The staff at the Hotel are wonderful ~ very helpful and friendly. Would stay there as my first choice every time! What a gem!

we stayed on a one nighter to the theatre. Our room was number 24 on the first floor and although beside the lift there wasnt a sound. The room was large with super king bed beautifully decorated in traditional style and at the front of the hotel overlooking fettes. Large bathroom and molton brown products. Breakfast great. Staff are always first class. Great value and the best in this hotel group for value. Have syaed many times and hope to stay many times again.

I happened upon this hotel on Expedia. What a great find! The rooms are very stylish and comfortable. The reception area is beautiful with old world charm. The staff couldn't have been any nicer and so helpful in planning outings. I hated to leave! Would highly recommend this hotel.

Pros - lovely cosy reception etc, on-street parking free at weekend, free wi-fi, 10 min walk to Princess Street, nice breakfast and very helpful staff.
Cons - borderline shabby standard room and at £130 a night out of season(!) it's not value for money.
Needs some investment badly!
