Booked into Channings for our last night in Edinburgh before leaving back to France. Upgraded to the top-floor suite: Endeavour.
A wonderful touch of history: Ernest Shackelton lived here a century ago and he's one of my all-time heroes as an explorer and as a people manager. Images and reminders are all over the hotel.
Room was comfortable with black-out blinds, not common in UK. Bathroom was a treat!
I'll say no more ...
Breakfast was copious in the conservatory. Would be better if you did not have to ask staff to fill up on coffee ...
Location is good, quiet and a short cab drive to city center.
