The Channel View Hotel
Ranked #2 of 51 Hotels in Shanklin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My family tell me I can spot dust at 100 metres so I was well prepared to cast my beady eye over the hotel.
And what happens - my week was ruined as I couldn't spot dust even centimetres away.
No greater compliment than this that I was able to hang up my duster for a week.
Which means the perfect holiday!
When I walked into the reception area I thought waoooow!
But I thought wait to I get to the other areas away from the front door!
And what happens again - it is an even bigger waooooooooooooooooow!
Since coming home my family say that after years of searching I have finally discovered the Holy Grail - the perfect dustless hotel!
The ultimate compliment - the hotel Oscar!
And as for the food - my scales and clothes tell the story that can't, unfortunately, be contradicted!
But an hotel is a building and what gives it life and homeliness is its staff from bottom to the top and the staff give the hotel a life that made me feel at home.

We spent 5 nights at this hotel and cannot praise it enough. The staff throughout the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful especially Gina when I asked her where I could find a shop to buy a certain child's 'toy'! The food was excellent, the rooms were spotless and all in all a fabulous hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

We have just come back from a 3 night stay in the Channel View and we were very impressed. The staff were absolutely lovely, it was very clean and well cared for, and the huge sea view room we were given was right at the top of the hotel with amazing views from 3 sides! The food was great and its position is excellent for access to both Shanklin village and the Esplanade. Lovely visit.

Just returned from a short break and have to say I was most impressed with the quality of this hotel. Good food, attentive and friendly staff and clean surroundings. Its position in Shanklin makes the sea views quite superb. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited this excellent hotel last year and had such a lovely time that this year we brought our two little granddaughters aged 3 and 6. The hotel was spotless, the food delicious and all the staff - reception, in the restaurant, and those who kept our room so clean and comfortable - went out of their way to make our stay very 'special'. Everything was 'the best'. Thank you all for making the holiday so enjoyable for our little granddaughters and ourselves. We will be staying at your hotel again.
