A Room for the NightIt wasn’t only regular diners coming out from Edinburgh, it was also the businessmen visiting the high-tech factories around Falkirk that gave Anne Davidson the inspiration to develop Champany Inn into what the French so eloquently call a “restaurant with rooms”. Anne Davidson has created a set of sixteen bedroom suites which echo the French concept, but with all the warmth of typical Scottish hospitality. The large and airy rooms, furnished with comfortable club chairs, featuring attractive bow windows hung with hunting tartan curtains.
There is plenty of hanging space in the ample wardrobe while the well lit dressing table, with plenty of drawers, can easily double as a desk if you have to work. The king sized double beds, covered in the same tartan as the curtains are firm and blissfully comfortable. Bedside tables, on either side, have their own lamps. The large remote control television will keep you entertained or up-to-date with world news. A table in the bow window looks out over the well manicured gardens.
Next up is the spacious white tiled bathroom. Behind a recess are the toilet and bidet. The room has a full length bath complete with “telephone” shower, a separate shower cubicle with powerful overhead shower. The wash hand basin has plenty of room for toiletries and is already furnished with a basket of Arran Aromatics soap and shampoo. Beside the basin is one of those wonderful magnifying mirrors which make shaving such a pleasure.
Large fluffy white towels complete the feeling of comfort. After a good nights sleep nothing is more welcome than a good Scottish breakfast. Freshly squeezed orange juice, tea or coffee and proper porridge as well as an Anglo-Saxon breakfast grill of butchers bacon, fresh laid eggs, home made Champany Sausage and black pudding, toast and preserves, is more than sufficient to set any man up for the day.
