Find this luxurious boutique hotel half a mile from the west end of Princes Street in a series of fine, adjoining Edwardian town houses. There is a country house feel, and they pride themselves as being the city's friendliest hotel. One of the houses was for a time the home of Sir Ernest Shackleton - and this theme is pursued in the hotel.
Bedrooms, each individually-decorated all have over-size beds, modern eTV's (with internet access), tea & coffee making facilities, hairdryers, a trouserpress and en suite bathrooms with top-quality toiletries.
'Superior' rooms have extra space, some having spa baths, others four-poster beds. There are two 'Shackleton' rooms, which have black & white photographs of some of his expeditions, plus two spacious 'Shackleton Suites' which have views of the cities rooftops and the Firth of Forth.
They have a popular wine bar, where you can also enjoy light meals, plus the more formal Channings Restaurant (see below).
