Property Description

Channings in Edinburgh is an informal, relaxed hotel with a very friendly approach. It occupies five Edwardian townhouses in Stockbridge, one of Edinburgh's most popular 'urban villages'. To suit its location slightly away from the city centre, 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 that owner Peter Taylor has collected over the years. There are 41 hotel rooms at Channings in all - no two are quite the same, in either layout or decor.One of the Channings townhouses, 14 South Learmonth Gardens, was home to Sir Ernest Shackleton, the Antarctic explorer, while he was secretary of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society between 1904 and 1910. We have named our top-floor hotel suites after Shackleton and his fellow adventurers, and are proud to display prints of black-and-white photographs that were taken on the expeditions, and a copy of a journey planner. Channings has a small, quiet garden and sun deck- a delightful retreat from the city centre, particularly if you are in Edinburgh during Festival season in the summer. We do bar meals outside (or in); or you can choose to use our slightly more formal, cosy restaurant, if you feel like dressing up a bit. For a taste of our well-known Scottish hospitality, we also have two adjoining reception rooms (the Kingsleigh drawing room was Shackleton's); these open up to create a space that is perfect for private dining, meetings or small wedding receptions.
