Fodor's Expert Review Channings
12–16 S. Learmonth Gardens, Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH4 IEZ, Scotland
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Five Edwardian terraced town houses make up this intimate, elegant hotel, with a clubby, oak-paneled lobby lounge and quiet guest rooms complete with well-chosen antiques and marble baths. Set in an upscale West End neighborhood just minutes from Princes Street, Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton lived here once, hence the fascinating photos in three suites. Channings Restaurant offers Scottish and continental European cooking.
