“Good Honest B&B”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stayed for one night in August due to last minute change of plan, Linda was lovely and went out of her was to prepare a room for us at very short notice. The room was spacious an clean with a decent size shower. We didn't have an evening meal but whatever was cooking smelt delicious! Breakfast was lovely with plently of choice. If we were ever in the area we'd stay here again.

We were walking the South West Coast Path and that day had covered 15+ gruelling miles from Lynmouth and the weather had thrown everything at us. When we could see Combe Martin, about an hour away, we called to say we'd be late (7 pm or so). As a result, the evening meal was put on hold.
When we arrived, the front door was thrown open as we walked up the road and the welcome was wonderful. Wet clothes were whisked away and dinner would be ready in half an hour while we showered and changed.
Dinner was roast chicken and six other dishes of vegetables, far more than we could eat. Clive even boiled the remains of the chicken for my Border Collie.
Our two rooms were extremely comfortable, and breakfast offered anything we wished for (almost).
Clive & Linda could not do enough for us. This was an immensely pleasurable rest from the rigours of the Coast Path.
Prices were extremely reasonable (& dinner particularly so).
Channel Vista is a B & B where you can be sure of a great welcome from confident, friendly and experienced owners – and it's licensed too!

In July 2014 my family and I stayed at the Channel Vista Guest House in Combe Martin in a family room, sleeping three. The hosts Clive & Linda were very friendly and welcoming, their dog McPhee enjoyed greeting everyone as they came into the property or down to breakfast in the morning! My son loved their dog and wanted to pack him up when we left! The room was very clean and big enough for three, but the bathroom was tiny. We did have use of a second bathroom in the neighbouring room when it was free, though, which we thought was a nice gesture. Combe Martin itself is a great place for a family stay as you can walk to the beach for crabbing in 5 mins. Would recommend, had a great holiday.

We booked 3 nights as hubby walking South West Coast Path. Made us feel very at home, very welcoming, especially loved the greeting from McPhee (their 4 legged friend) every time we came in. Delicious home cooked meals by Clive each night, as well as excellent breakfast too. We both slept brilliantly so beds a real comfort, everything immaculately clean which is well appreciated. Most definitely recommend to anyone. Would certainly stay again if in the area.

Clive and Linda are very welcoming although the accommodation is dated and in need of refurbishment. However the beds are comfortable, the bed linen and towels are spotless and there is a wide choice of cooked traditional English breakfast along with a few cereals.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front suffer from some road noise from passing traffic albeit not too bad.

We stayed three nights at Channel Vista . Linda and Clive are excellent hosts, very welcoming, friendly and make you feel at home. Not forgetting McPhee who is also very welcoming and friendly. The bedroom was very spacious and clean and bed comfortable, the food excellent cooked personally by Clive. Highly recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: all rooms excellent

We had to find a hotel quickly for just one night and came across this hotel, and as it was exactly in the street we wanted, we booked it. We arrived early and Linda came out to greet us as we were getting out the car. The hotel was lovely. Our room (no. 3) was very spacious, nicely done and very clean. Shower unit nice and large. Nice bay window to sit in with table and two chairs. Comfy bed. Breakfast was extremely good and we also met Clive who came and had a chat. We had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely stay here again if down in Combe Martin. McPhee even came out to greet us! (the hotel dog!) Thanks to both Linda and Clive for making us so welcome.
