First visit to I O W could have not chosen a better hotel. Rooms very clean and comfortable plenty of tea/coffee. All the staff very friendly and all seemed to take pride in their jobs. The food was all local produce cooked to a very high standard,always hot (not a chip in sight) which was a refreshing change. All meals waitress service and how efficient never having to wait more than a few minuetes. Lovely swimming pool, small but water very warm. Could not fault this hotel would return.

Room was very clean. Their hotel information explains it is family owned with long standing staff, this was evident by the good service we recieved. Would return here when back on I.o.W.

We decided on a last minute two night trip to the Isle of Wight with 6 year old grand-daughter. Very helpful when booking and even arranged our ferry crossing. Large family room with small double and a single bed. All the amenities you would expect, ensuite, coffee making facilities and hair dryer. Bit like going back in time to the 1960s. Meals were adequate and it seemed that the order was taken through one door and came out of the other within seconds.
Very clean throughout. Would definitely go again with grand-daughter but would prefer room NOT on the ground floor as we didn't feel happy leaving a window open. Small indoor swimming pool which made our grand-daughter's day. Am thinking of taking my elderly mother who is on sticks but although there was a ramp into the hotel I think it might be a problem getting to the reception and dining room as there seemed to be steps everywhere. However I didn't look into this so they may have a cunning plan.

Room Tip: the higher up the better view

We returned to the Channel View Hotel at Shanklin this year after a two year break. We are pleased to say that it is as good as ever. A really clean, tidy hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food remains superb. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: The extra expense for a Premier Plus room is certainly worth it.

Booked for two days when I went to visit my dear old Ma. The hotel is clean, tidy, and well maintained. The staff are top quality and it was like a visit back in time when people were proud of there work. The hotel manager must live on site as he was at the office 24/7 and this seemed to be the hub of a hotel run well. location is good and central for beech and town. Would defiantly visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms were clean tidy and spacious.

Hard one this. Been to the Isle of Wight on many occasions and the hotels always seem to be up market guest houses. To be fair to the Channel View, this is probably the best hotel so far.
It is very clean and the staff and management are top class and they were able to book us a ferry at short notice on a busy weekend. Our room was very large and had a wonderful sea view.
The breakfast tables are very close together and that smacks of guest house. Usually with 3 star hotels, you have a breakfast bar to help yourself to cereals, fruit etc.
All in all would recommend the Channel View and would stay again.
