Charming, Friendly Service in Edinburgh

Quirky Charm, Friendly Service

If you're looking for a friendly atmosphere to anchor your stay in Edinburgh, Channings Hotel is the place to go. This four-star hotel is relaxed and informal. The friendly service approach will keep you happy and ensure you enjoy your stay in Scotland. It is slightly separate from the city center of Edinburgh, making this quirky property feel like a Scottish country house. Filled with charming Victorian paintings, furniture, prints, and books, Channings Hotel is ideal for an authentic getaway.

Picturesque Cobbled Streets and Relaxed Atmosphere

This New Town townhouse hotel keeps you in a laid-back setting while still keeping top attractions easy to reach. The hotel is near Stockbridge and Dean Village. The Edinburgh property was also once the home of Sir Ernest Shackleton, a great Antarctic explorer, giving the site a historical flair. You'll come home to a cobbled street that overlooks private gardens, but you'll also be 800 meters from central Princes Street and near to the Gallery of Modern Art.

Leave Behind the Bustle of City Life

It's easy to find a great meal right at your doorstep at Channings Hotel. You can enjoy lunch or dinner at the bar and restaurant, which features fresh produce and seasonal ingredients and offers a bar menu. The neighborhood bistro continues the hotel's relaxed and friendly ambience. To round out the experience, stop by the restaurant to recharge after shopping on Princes Steer for tea or Pimms on the Sun Deck.

Value and Comfort in the Unique Rooms

Guests will enjoy the individually decorated rooms, featuring fabric textures like silk, linen, velvet, and suede in rich, deep colors. All of the rooms offer designer toiletries and satellite television. No two rooms are the same, and you can choose from a range of options, from Petite Doubles to Junior Suites. Mixing the contemporary and the antique, the quirky, individually decorated rooms will give an added dimension to your stay in Edinburgh.

The Bottom Line

Like at the Bonham Hotel, staying at Channings Hotel will give you a relaxed home away from home for your trip to Scotland. Combining the charm of Edinburgh with quirky, unique design details and a commitment to friendly service, this hotel makes any visit to Edinburgh memorable. From the historical connection to Sir Ernest Shackleton to the fresh menu at the on-site restaurant, Channings Hotel offers great service.

Expert Reviews
For the price, this quaint hotel delivers good value for Edinburgh and is full of character.
Five Edwardian terraced town houses make up this intimate, elegant hotel in an upscale West End neighborhood just minutes from Princes Street.
The Telegraph
There is an air of Edwardian reliability about this comfortable, if slightly lived-in, former home of polar explorer Ernest Shackleton. There is plenty of memorabilia around the hotel...
