This is the place to stay if you love expeditions. Even better if you ar a fan of Sir Ernest Shackleton. The hotel is decorated with memorabilia inspired by the greatest Antartic explorer.

When you just want to get away from it all, I recommend you book into Channings Hotel.

Located a number of streets back from Princes Street, it is far away enough from the City Centre to justify jumping in a taxi but close enough for those who enjoy a long, brisk walk.

Like all good hotels, Channings has a story to tell!

Previously home to Antarctic Explorer, Sir Ernest Shackleton, who explored Antarctic between 1904 and 1910, Channings have since discovered memorabilia and artefacts from the expedition. Nowadays these artefacts are proudly displayed around the hotel.

There's some amazing black and white Expedition photographs which have been blown up into full-sized framed pictures, and from these images you get a real glimpse into the sense of adventure inherent in these men.

The 41 rooms have been cleverly designed with a twist of contemporary melding seamlessly with the Victorian architecture. You'll find comfortable beds swathed in rich fabrics alongside modern bathrooms under the eaves.

Peaceful and serene, you can sit in front of the fire or enjoy a game of scrabble in a quiet corner or pop into Channings restaurant for a bite to eat.

Outside in the garden, there's a barbecue area set up and plenty of private space to catch some rays.

Always an added bonus, the staff are friendly, courteous and knowledgeable - in my book, that gives this hotel the edge.
