Certificate of Excellence
A small family-run adult-only hotel, just 15 yards from a gorgeous sandy beach, we have stunning uninterrupted, panoramic sea-views from our relaxing conservatory and bedrooms. We serve delicious hearty breakfasts, and optional home-cooked evening meals. All rooms are en-suite with free WIFI and many small touches of luxury, or upgrade to a Deluxe or Superior Room for that Boutique feel with extras such as Nespresso Coffee Machines, walk in rainfall showers and Smart LED TVs. 2019 brings a new Seaview Suite which is already proving to be very popular. Ample free parking, a short level walk to the beach, a 10 minute stroll to either Paignton or Torquay harbours, and buses every 10 minutes to the rest of Torbay, the Channel View Boutique B&B is a perfect location for your short-break or longer holiday. Why not give us a try?

Thanks for your question. We tend to close for refurbishment in January, but we're open the rest of the time. Don't forget the best rates are only available to those who call the Hotel.
