Channings is an informal, relaxed hotel with a very friendly approach.
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.
Alternatively, relax in our vibrant wine bar and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, a light lunch or sit down to a meal from our extensive bar menu - a great place to meet any time of day!
Have a spirited adventure in the former home of explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton -you'll discover creativity and innovation in this historically-rich building. 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.
