Channings is located in a quiet leafy residential suburb about twelve minutes walk (or a brief taxi ride if you are elderly!) from the centre of Edinburgh. It consists of five town houses knocked togetrher.Every room is different. Ours was spacious and confortably furnished, with Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom, and the best hotel shower we have encountered in many years of international travelling. Lunches and dinners are beautifully cooked and served, and in addition a good all-day meny is available in the bar until 10 p.m. Our bookings included a plentiful "continental" brewakfast,andt cooked breakfast was also available. But what is truly outstanding about Channings is the friendly and responsive attitude of the staff. Nothing is too much for them.
Edinburgh itself is full of treats -- Scottish art, music, and good food and drink. We would particularly reconnend the Scottish colorists (especially Peploe) in the National Gallery of Modern Art (quite near the hotel) and the Raeburn portraits in the National Gallery just off Princes Street. Gladstones Land is an amzing 16th century merchant's house now owned by the National Trust, with brilliant guides on hand. Go down High Street and on the left in Jeffrey Street you will find an autrhentic Provençal restaurant La Garrigue, but it is vry popular with locals so be sure tob book ahead. And if you go to a concert in Usher Hall, be warned that there is no food available, not even a bag of crisps -- only whisky (seems the Scots prefer it that way).
