We have just returned from the Isle of Wight and we stayed at this hotel with our daughter's family and my husband and I. The Channel View is perfectly situated for the waterfront restaurants and large play areas for the children. From our bedrooms, the windows were panoramic sizes and we had spectacular uninterrupted sea views. The sun shone for...

Run by the same family for over 30 years and they are all still "hands on". If they can help they will, nothing is too much fuss. A very well maintained hotel and good value for money. Staff are very professional from front of house, dining and house keeping. Breakfast is fantastic and evening meal (although not many options) very...

We visited this hotel today for a family function and had an average experience overall. The hotel overall was very clean and well presented - lounge space is somewhat limited though and we had to sit in what was really the foyer until other guests arrived. Food overall was not bad for a largish catering event although it took quite...

This hotel is in a good location just a short walk down to the seafront. Most staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good, apart from vegetarian options. However the milk was off a couple of times during our stay, so maybe better checks on storage and dates are needed. Lovely warm pool, which is small, but we had it...

Stayed here for business and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and some have lovely sea views. Shanklin beach and sea front is very classic British seaside, great for families. Breakfast was hearty and again service was great. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a lovely seaside holiday and a classic English hotel.
