Channings is an informal, relaxed hotel with a very friendly approach. To suit its location slightly away from Edinburgh city centre, Channings is a wonderfully quirky property which feels like a Scottish country home full of charming Victorian paintings, prints, books, furniture and memorabilia. 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 Edinburgh 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.
