First of all, I must apologise for not writing my review sooner. I have had some building works taking place since August and my computer has not been connected until now. The last holiday my friend and myself had at The Channel View was absolutely wonderful as far as the Hotel was concerned. Everybody is so dedicated and I am so looking forward to spending my next break there in December. This will be 'Turkey and Tinsel'.

My only regret about the previous trip was the driver of the coach. Let's hope I never have the misfortune to meet him again.

The welcome at reception was professional, friendly and very accommodating of any special requests made by members of our large group.
The rooms were pristine, comfortable and homely with excellent servicing performed each day.
There were wonderful views and access to nice walks despite the changeable weather.
The slightly quirky sense of humour from the management at reception sometimes confused some of our group members but this was compensated by the rapid response to any requests made.
We had a spooky moment when one of our bedroom chairs began to mysteriously rock back and forth and the carpet undulated in a strange way. Reception assured us that there was no hotel ghost in residence and we then realised that due to the exceptionally blustery weather a strong underfloor draft was causing this strange phenomenon. We remained warm and cosy in our room despite this scary moment.
The excellent food was served by the polite and friendly waiting staff.
The whole weekend had been organised by Isle of Tours (especially "Oli" their rep) who pulled all the stops to make our stay a truly memorable one.

Room Tip: Room 40 was a lovely double room with a great sea view.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel through the storm. It is a very clean ,homely hotel where it's easy to relax. The staff were excellent in all departments. In the dining room the girls were highly efficient taking orders as soon as you sat down and serving them very quickly. The food itself was very good.As for the hotel overlooking the sea on top of the cliff with a very nice pool and bar area you couldn't want for a better place for the money-truly value for money.Once again thank you all for a lovely break. Keith & Sue.

Not long returned home from a very enjoyable couple of days at the Channel View Hotel. My wife and I took along my 92 year old father for a short break. Everything about this hotel is as described in their brochure. It was absolutely first class service, from the initial welcome, to the rooms and the food. I could go on and on. We are looking forward to returning next year.

My first visit to the IOW for many years, and this hotel made it perfect. They seem to have thought of everything to make a stay there almost home from home. The room was spotlessly clean, good comfortable beds and with lovely soft fluffy towels along with toiletries in the bathroom. They actually had remembered that women stay in hotels, so there was a dressing table, with mirror, in front of the window, with a handy power point for the hairdryer. Meals were freshly cooked and tasty with a varied menu, and the staff were attentive and very helpful. Gill, Andrew, Paul and all the hotel staff made you feel like they were there just for you. I did feel quite sorry for the people the hotel hired for entertainment in the evenings, as many people seemed to retire to their rooms after dinner, but well done Channel View for providing entertainment! The hotel was in a superb location, handy for the sea front and Shanklin's shopping and Old Town. This visit was to take my aunt away for a few days, but I shall certainly return with my partner - I'm certain he'll enjoy the Channel View too.

Room Tip: We had a side room, with views of the sea over the flat roof. I would imagine all rooms were quiet.

This was our first visit to this hotel but it certainly won't be the last. Hotel was spotless and the staff were very friendly.
The only downside is that I wish they had a separate, more intimate bar away from the dance floor. Otherwise a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: We had room 56. Wonderful room with excellent views.
