We stayed last week on a Mon - Fri coach holiday and having read some of the reviews we were not expecting much. Pleasantly surprised. The owner was friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble for her and the waiting staff in the dining room were excellent. The room (No. 7) was basic but warm and spotlessly clean and the...

My partner and I love a good bargain, but there's budget and then there's cheap & nasty. Rude/non existent staff, dirty room, cold shower, tiny crack of a view of the Solent, bed springs that 'boinged' all night and dug into you, and walls so paper thin you could even hear the occupants in other rooms fart! Breakfast was cold,... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed at The Channel View Hotel from 12 – 16 Jan 2015. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed a comfortable stay. Our room was clean, well equipped, and comfy. We both felt the quality of meals and portion sizes were very good, in addition I am vegetarian and was extremely well catered for. The... More

The Hotel was part of our coach package. Again having seen some poor reviews I felt the need to write my own. The hotel Manager is lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for her or the staff. The hotel is only "2stars" and is simply furnished but adequate. It deserves a higher rating. We had room "12", on the second... More

At the time of my writing, the last review published (Oct.12) was not a favorable one. Well I have just returned (Nov 28) from a 4 night stay. My short break holiday, organized by Sunrise Holidays, was a very different experience indeed. My wife and self prefer the peace and quiet of an upper room. This was requested when we... More

The outside of this hotel looked tired as the inside , the owners greeting was abrupt and curt . The food was poor quality, and portion sizes were small and delivered cold due to chaotic serving, although staff where great and did there best. The room was facing the street had no view of the channel, the floor bowed in... More

Not that we booked on the basis of viewing the channel but I would doubt if more than a couple of rooms would offer you a view. The hotel is so sadly typical of many hotels that are in desperate need of some money being spent on them. At first glance on line it seems to be good value but... More
