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

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.

If you don't mind your belongings being stolen then you can stay here. The food is well cooked and reasonably priced, there is also a mini bar in the room. The location is central which makes getting a taxi easy if you don't have a car. On the downside, so much theft takes place and the management handdover the housekeeping... More
