Channings Hotel Edinburgh, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member with a historic past

Channings Hotel Edinburgh enjoys a quiet setting just a 10 minute walk from the West End of the city and offers excellent accessibility to travellers: the A1 will take you directly into the city centre; Waverley Station and Haymarket Station are 10 minutes and 5 minutes drive respectively, whilst Edinburgh Airport can be reached by car in around 20 minutes.

Enjoy Scottish country house charm at our Edinburgh hotel

The discreet yet friendly service at Channings Hotel blends perfectly with the homely originality of this 4-star property to provide guests with a unique experience.

Throughout the hotel our guests can find reminders of its past life, most notably as a former home to Sir Ernest Shackleton, the legendary Antarctic Explorer, and photographs and memorabilia relating to his expeditions are proudly displayed.

Accommodation at our Edinburgh hotel is arranged in 42 rooms ranging in size from Petite Doubles right up to three wonderfully oversized Shackleton Suites. Whilst no two rooms are alike in layout or décor, they all provide the same exceptional standards when it comes to facilities and comfort.

The same relaxed atmosphere extends to Channings Restaurant – the perfect place to catch up with friends and family over lunch, dinner or afternoon tea, or maybe even a jug of Pimms out on the Sun Deck.

Shackleton’s Bar & Brasserie serves fresh seasonal dishes alongside a wide range of drinks and cocktails; come and enjoy our Antarctic theme whilst warming yourself by the fireplace.

Host an unforgettable event at our Edinburgh hotel

If you are planning to hold your next event at one of the luxury hotels in Edinburgh, why not consider our three charismatic meeting rooms; the newly refurbished Conservatory can cater for up to 80 guests in a contemporary setting opening onto the Sun Deck, whilst The Library and The Kingsleigh are cosy, wood-panelled rooms for more intimate gatherings. The uniqueness of Channings Hotel lends itself to the perfect Edinburgh wedding venue.

Explore the city around our characterful Edinburgh hotel

Channings Hotel Edinburgh allows its guests both to relax in a quiet location on a cobbled street overlooking private gardens and to take advantage of its close proximity to the city centre and everything this vibrant capital has to offer. Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline from atop its rock. The Royal Botanic Garden is a haven away from the hustle and bustle with a collection of over 15,000 plants. Princes Street stretches for approximately one mile and offers an impressive array of shops, bars and eateries.
