Small friendly hotel close to the beach in Paignton. Lovely views from the bedrooms on the front of the hotel and a nice sun lounge where you can sit after your evening meal and watch the sun setting. Very reasonable rates too.

I have just arrived back home from a weeks holiday at the Channel View Hotel, the company, the hosts Tom and Jenny, it was all worth an amazing visit. The Breakky and Evening meals are both delicious and they most certainly fill you up. I look forward to returning next year. Thank You

Have been going to The Channel View hotel since 2002. Tom and Jenny are very friendly and welcome you with a pot of tea or coffee. The rooms are spotlessly clean and there are only 22 wide stairs to climb to get to the third floor with your luggage. There is no entertainment but the other guests are so friendly... More
