Considerable flair and thought has gone into creating Channings, a stylish transformation of five Edwardian town houses, which has had many of its original features restored. With restful fire-lit lounges and its renowned character and charm, Channings offers a cosy relaxed ambience, reminiscent of a country house hotel in town. The warm and richly coloured Brasserie with its superb Edwardian features is in direct contrast with the contemporary, simple and uncluttered Wine Bar & Conservatory. With influences of arts, crafts and Scandinavian design, the pale wooden floors and subtle directional downlights give a light and airy feel which creates a lovely contrast to, and complements, the snug warmth of the traditional Brasserie. The menu has been imaginatively created merging delicious Scottish and European cooking with modern influences and is as stimulating as the surroundings. Channings has been designed to meet today's needs, with forty-eight individually designed en-suite bedrooms, several offering breath-taking panoramic views of Edinburgh to the hills of Fife and beyond.
