“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

We stayed here for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday and we had a lovely time. The room was really nice and spacious with a big bathroom and soft fluffy towels. We had dinner in the Chop and Ale house which was great with very good service. We had a drink in the cocktail lounge when we first arrived and were served by Alfonse (a lovely Spanish gentleman) who made us feel very welcome and special. Breakfast was superb - you can watch the Chef cooking your breakfast for you, it is served piping hot and all the ingredients are really good quality. We will definitely be back.

Came here for the steak two months ago and was disappointed. Steak was just alright. Nothing special. Restaurant has forgotten about decent food and it was such a disappointment. Might avoid this for a while. Go to Dakota down the road. They have great steaks

Highly recommended hotel and a million miles from the "hotel chain experience"! Very friendly staff. Run like a family B+B. Great food at (pricey restaurant) and also the adjoining Chop House. Breakfast is fantastic IF you still have room after your meal and wine the night before!
Free Wifi although limited bandwidth (in my personal experience).

I recently stayed two nights at the Champany Inn. A relative had organised a family get together on one of the nights. I am so gald we booked to stay here, the room, food and service were all excellent, the staff were very friendly, I cannot fault the Champany at all and will stay there in the future.

We stayed overnight at the Champany Inn just outside Linlithgow and ate dinner at the Chop and Ale House onsite.
Receptionist was friendly and helpful, and booked a table for us in the Chop and Ale - very glad she did as the wait would have been 45 mins, or 2-2.5hrs for a table for four.
The food was alright, perhaps a little overhyped on the website, we felt the food was a bit overpriced but since it's so popular they can do it - there are plenty staff on hand to serve you, so not grumbling too much about the price - might eat in Linlithgow next time.
The rooms are large and a bit different from chain hotels. Breakfast is in a really cheery room, cooked on a giant Aga where you can see the cooks, and was really enjoyable. Freshly juiced orange.grapefruit /whatever you ask for, silver pots for tea and coffee, nice choice of ingredients cooked to order. Great value for money and we'll definitely be back to stay here. Breakfast staff and receptionist on check out were again really nice and friendly - so 5/5 for the rooms, 6/5 for the hotel staff, but only probably 3.5 out of 5 for the chop and ale house because it's a little cramped and a bit expensive, imho. ( £23 for steak, £15 for half roast chicken, £20 for bottle of wine, starters and dessert around £7 each)
Nice accommodation if you're having a family get together though, or just to explore the area for a few days though.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be the same, huge bathrooms with separate rainfall shower and telephone style...

Fantastic friendly welcome but one of our party was well known here and a good customer so I wonder if that perhaps had more to do with it.

Dined on a Friday lunchtime and the whole place was dead with just one other couple, this was ok because we were in a party but if you had been the only couple I doubt there would have been much atmosphere.

The decor of this place is certainly an acquired taste, even in daytime the whole place is dark and gloomy with candles set on every table, very heavy drapes / curtains / mismatching chairs of completely different heights at the same table, the place settings for me were overly fussy with napkins, cutler, glasses etc in abundance. Each table also had a large floral display or bowl of fruit - shame ours was more than a bit bit wrinkled around the edges.

Food - as a lot of other reviews say VERY expensive, LUNCH for 4 was over £600. WOW. 4 starters were on the large side and ok. 4 rib eye steaks were very large (and all unfinished, taken home in doggy bags) but were of questionable quality. Distinctly steely / metallic taste to my steak. Basic salad which at £5 was disappointing. Large generic chips, don't go expecting triple cooked Heston style delicious hand cut ones because this is not what you will get ... old fat / oil?? Wet grey veg - I didn't try it.

Very nice wine but at over £55 a bottle I would expect it to be. Served at perfect temperature.

Overall about what I expected having read firstly their website and secondly a few reviews on here.

Michelin star prices not a Michelin experience by any means.

I have had many steaks in many restaurants , however this is THE ONE.

The Champany is it's own place. It has it's own style and ambience and has it's own style of service. (of which I love)

If you want cheap and cheerful....don't come here.

The food and service are first class, the price ? It is also , however as the say you get what you pay for. Even given the price tag The Champany Restaurant provides , in my view , value for money.

This is a trip worth making and even now I am feeling the urge to go back today !!

You may or may not make frequent visits to Champany , however you will certainly make frequent comment to family and friends about the quality of food served.

If you are used to pre-packed food and frozen produce then don't come. The price reflects the plate you get.

Thank you to The Davidson's and staff for service that is as it should be and food that others can only aspire to.

We will be back :-)
