“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday on the Isle of Wight made all the better by the staff at the Channel View Hotel!
They were very friendly and accommodating and our room was very clean and had an amazing view overlooking the beach!
The food was very good and there was lots of choice.
We would thoroughly recommend The Channel View Hotel and would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

I have just returned from a coach holiday on the Isle of Wight staying at the Channel View hotel,we were welcomed with a nice cup of tea. The hotel commands a beautiful location overlooking Shanklin Bay and is within easy walking distance of shops and train station.The food is excellent with good sized portions and always a vegetarian dish,save room for the fab deserts.Great evening entertainment unfortunately not supported much by the guests.All the staff are very helpful and friendly,I had a problem not concerning the hotel but was very quickly rectified by one of the owners(thank you very much for that ).I am hoping to return in March next year with my Husband on our way back from Spain,oh by the way I loved the biscuits in the room.

We have just returned with family from a most enjoyable week at the Channel View. The hotel is very comfortable and spotlessly clean with very well appointed bedrooms. The view from the dining room is the sea and the food served here is excellent. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. We definitely will return again! Thank you for an excellent week with perfect weather !!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed excellent!

This was our 6th time to stay at Channel View. Every time we have been we have been received very well, had lovely clean and spacious rooms (with outstanding sea views) and been very well looked after. This is an exceptionally comfortable hotel with a good choice of food and good sized portions. The staff are all very attentive to our needs, without being on top of you, and nothing is too much problem. Even down to providing extra pillows and access to the rear car park for people with mobility difficulties.
The hotel is superbly positioned on the cliff top overlooking Shanklin and Sandown, and is just a few minutes walk to the sea front, or 10 mins into town or the railway station.
We will most certainly be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Go for the Premier Plus rooms. They are spacious with great sea views and do not cost a lot extra th...

We went in by chance as we were not happy with our accommodation elsewhere. As we were on our last night on the Island we chose a sea view room....wow we felt spoilt staying there. The hotel is so close to the beachfront and town.
The hotel is family run by two brothers and the service is so friendly and professional.
We tried out the swimming pool which is great for doing a few lengths or relaxing.
The facilities looked and felt cared for.
We will be recommending the hotel to family and friends.

we are islanders and chose to celebrate my birthday with a meal and evening out in shanklin. my partner booked the overnight stay at the channel view to complete the day.
beautiful flowers that were requested to be ordered at the time of booking were waiting in the impeccably clean room. all staff were smiling, polite, friendly and helpful.
who needs the stress of travelling when we have such a great hotel on our doorstep.
Perhaps he'll book us in for the week next time!!
Thanks for everything.

Lovely hotel. Very friendly staff, who are helpful and chatty.

Lots of choice at breakfast with good service.

No fridge in the room, but they would happily provide milk for my little boys bottle at 7am.

Great location, close to the beach and coastal path, with stunning sea views.

The room was very warm, no fan/air con, which would have been nice during the very lovely weather.

Decent sized swimming pool, not too busy.

Evening entertainment provided, which wasn't to our taste, but plenty to do in Shanklin.
