This obviously must have once been a good Hotel but it is basically a dump now. There's a some semblance of renovation but it's half-hearted. It's really a pity since the Hotel has a good location and a serene environment, a good swimming pool and some decent food. It's simply not worth the prices they charge judging by the quality...

Basically nothing works. The rooms are not functioning 100%, problems with light switches, Safety depositi does not work, the wireless internet is very poor. For breakfast there were only 5 cups of coffee, they simply did not have coffee for the breakfast, and if you order a pizza it is frozen pizza from the supermarked. Not a good place to... More

I was shocked at what i saw during my recent visit to the hotel, for some reasons, Last year December I was at this hotel and to be candid it was not a splendid experience due to the existing dilapidated infrastructures. But as faith will have it I was booked here by a friend who pleaded with me to come... More

Since 2002, i've been travelling down to calabar on business at least once a year, started out by staying at Channel View as it was the best hotel at the time but over the years as their facilities aged and services dipped, i switchd to another hotel. This year, when i arrived Calabar, i passed by Chanel View and noticed... More

Compared to other hotels that I've been, this one is overly expensive. I had poor access to internet and unnecessary stuffs like a podium in my room. I avoided the only chair in my room because it looked infected with bugs. Their restaurant was an ok place to hang out though. With friendly staff and good food, I might go... More

Nice hotel with very friendly and courteous staff. The rooms were clean and void of damp. very nice Nigerian dishes especially the ones local to the Efiks but the service at the restaurant was very very slow. I recommend you pre book your meals from your room before going to the restaurant.

The hotel looks great from the outside, but inside it's a confusing maze of corridors, stairways, and a non-functioning elevator. The restaurant serves food slowly that is edible but not much more. the check-in process is absurdly bureaucratic, divided into many tiny steps across two different desks. Calabar is such a nice town, there's got to be a better hotel... More

Channel view hotel is not near a channel. 1. Staff. Very friendly and welcoming each day as we left and returned from meetings. Room did not have carpet and were cleaned daily. Other reviews stated issues with items being stolen, we have several armed military guards patrolling the grounds so that helped the staff to re-think removing items that did... More

Spent 1 month here while working in Calabar, it has good facilities and excellent service. I was put up at the Metropolitian by my company and then later the Axari hotel when I first arrived but had cause to shift on both occasions due to poor service.

It was horrible. I wouldn't even think about recommending this to someone else. The place looks great. but you have to spend your time protecting your stuff rather than enjoying your stay.
