Another fantastic holiday in this lovely hotel (9th visit), lovely big room (45) with fantastic views of the sea and beach. Friendly staff who are always happy to help. Breakfast and evening meals were delicious, kids loved it (15 & 12). Will definitely be returning next year!

I stayed here and on arrival was shown into the concert room and served tea , very welcoming. The hotel is spotlessly clean , and the rooms very comfortable , the food in the restaurant was excellent with plenty of choice, all the staff were very friendly and helpful, the location is amazing overlooking the sea, would stay there again.

Large and very comfortable room with all the facilities you would expect for that star rating, or perhaps a little more than you would expect. I didn't really test the amenities of the hotel as I was visiting friends and only needed somewhere to sleep and have breakfast. And it provided those admirably. In retrospect, I was happy to pay...

My wife and I have just returned from 4 nights Half-Board at The Channel View Hotel, Shanklin. Our stay was excellent. We had opted for one of the Superior Rooms on the 4th floor, which was comfortably furnished and commanded a wonderful sea-view. The Hotel is traditionally English seaside. The proprietors obviously regard their business as a labour of love,... More
