“Lovely place to stay, great food”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We stayed one night over the May bank holiday weekend at Channel Vista. Very happy with our choice of guest house. Linda and Clive were very welcoming and excellent hosts. We chose to have dinner there in the evening which was cooked personally by Clive. The food was lovely and plenty of it and so much nicer to be home cooked than to eat out. Breakfast was also great. You could help yourselves to fruit, cereal and yoghurts and then choose a cooked breakfast which was great. Room was large, comfy and clean, bed was comfortable. Peaceful quiet location. Thanks

My wife and I had an excellent stay. Clive and Linda were most accommodating, as was Mcfee!
The room was tidy and the bed comfortable, kindly ready for us at 11 as we had a wedding at 12:30.
The breakfast was just what was needed after a hard night of socialising.
Linda's help with planning our walk made our last day something special and without her advice I'm sure we would of got stuck.

Had two lovely days at Channel Vista Combe Martin. Rooms light, spacious and lovely crisp bed linen, food excellent and lots of it and wonderful muffins and puddings thank you Clive. Hosts Linda, Clive and the adorable McPhee made us feel very welcome nothing too much trouble. Very dog friendly which was great for my Westie Poppy. Would recommend Channel Vista to anyone who enjoys a good location for discovering the North Devon coast, a warm and friendly welcome and excellent value for money. Will most definitely be returning.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very good.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this lovely place! Great welcome, perfect family suite (separate room for our 10 yr old!), absolutely fabulous breakfasts with freshly made muffins each morning, plus McPhee was a brilliant playmate for our dog! Highly recommend a visit!

Superb service, friendly happy place to be spending time and better still, the dog came too! The service was excellent, smiles and laughter with the warmest welcome. Fabulous breakfast menu and fresh cooked muffins & evening meals on request. The best value for money we have spent in a long time. I would highly recommend this guest house.

We stayed here for 1 night having walked the first 3 days of the South West Coastal Path. We were made very welcome in spite of them being in the middle of redecorating. Nice big room with a good shower. Extraordinarily good value evening meal cooked by Clive. The strawberry pavlova was particularly good. Good breakfast. We would recommend this B&B to anyone and make sure you book Clive's cooking (£12 for main course, dessert and coffee) - why go anywhere else? McPhee (the dog) will make you very welcome too.

If you want a no frills B & B at a reasonable price with the added advantage of an evening meal you would be hard pressed to find better than this B & B. Clive & Linda know the meaning of customer service & hospitality, thank you for a great nine day stay

Room Tip: We had rooms 2 & 3 see photos on web site
