Didn't see the plus VAT so we felt it was pricey the shower door didn't close shut the shower was a trickle just one bar of soap between two no shower gel or shampoo. The manageress was very rude to customers at breakfast and we could hear arguments from the kitchen very small dinning tables right next to each other... More

As a touring Bowls team we were placed at the Channel View Hoterl in Sandown by our tour organisers Isle of Wight Tours and were extremely wary of what we were going to find because of adverse reviews previously placed. Our confidence in IOW Tours I can tell you remains solid. Between them and The Channel View Hotel and their... More

Unfriendly manageress, she actually walked right past us without even acknowledging us. One of the worst hotels we have ever stayed in. Except for the waitresses in the dining room who did their best to look after us, and were the only friendly people employed there. Our room was very cold and damp, in fact there was a big damp...

I have had the misfortune to stay at this hotel on several occasions on business and regret the choice. Only one key for the room, have to ask for a front door key if coming in after 22.00, no evening meals unless booked and paid for 24 hrs in advance, no bar snacks, and the threat of being slung out...

The 1st room we had was a double instead of a twin but we should never have complained about such a minor issue. We were moved to a 2nd room located on the 1st floor immediately above the lounge and an entertainment was on that night. The music was so loud that some people on the 2nd floor decided to... More

The shower enclosure is extremely small. I guess it's fitted for petite people. The bed divan or the mattress is very dated hence the lack of support. There's no noise insulation as we could hear whenever someone is walking on the hallway and the guest snoring next door.

For that beautiful Island this hotel does not show a good quality.(for me rather a motel) I`m happy that it wasn`t my choice but was booked in advance for a 2 days trip by Anderson tour. I can understand that for added price it isn`t possible to book a higher quality place, but anyway, it was not my standard. Stuffs... More
