The Channings Hotel
Ranked #46 of 53 Bristol B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 July 2011

Stayed here Saturday 17th July. Slightly aprehensive at first because of the negative reviews.

The hotel was more than adequate for what we needed (a bed for the night after attending a nearby wedding party!). The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. Staff very helpful and the cost of the room was less than advertised online, albeit a saving of just a few pounds, a saving is a saving!

The pub downstairs had very friendly staff and the beer garden was a nice area to meet with friends prior to attending the party.

Didn't eat at the hotel as had to depart early the next morning for a train.

I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. I returned to the hotel at about 2am Sunday morning to find that the front door key, did not allow me to open the door and I was locked out!! After banging and shouting I eventually managed to wake up a member of the management team who did not even apologise!

The location is good, breakfast just about acceptable, toast burnt and no butter one morning. Cleanliness and table mats could be improved too.

This could be a really good place but not been able to get in to the building is very serious!!

Apparently, the management team is new - clearly they have work to do!!!

After reading reviews we were worried, our worried faded as soon as we arrived.
The hotel is in an ideal location and well priced in comparison with other Bristol hotels. The rooms were spacious with everything we needed for a short stay. Plenty of condiments, clean towels, hot water, an well heated.
The breakfast in the morning was fine, asked for a vegetarian breakfast and to my surprise was provided with quorn sausages and all the trimmings .
Yes, the staff are young, but that doesnt mean instantly that they are rude. I think a lot of the reviews I have read for Channings, on this site an various others are unfounded.

Ideal for a short stay at a low price!

We stayed at Channings for a night as we came back to Bristol to visit some friends. Having gone to university in Bristol we knew the area and bar well so we knew the location was good.
The room was good value with breakfast included. When we checked in the service was good. The room was nice and clean, although a few things could have been improved, such as the toilet seat was cracked and the blinds let in lots of light in the morning, so I couldn't get a lie in!
Breakfast was fine, the service was a bit slow but had cereal, tea and a full English breakfast. The bar and pub garden are nice for a few drinks in the evening.
Overall, it is more like a B&B than a hotel but it was a nice play to stay for a night.
