This appears to be a lovely hotel. The meals were excellent and the evening entertainment was quite good too. Michelle sang lovely songs catering for us oldies and involving the audience. However we did not sleep at all well thanks to a worn out mattress and noisy fans from neighbouring en-suites.

This family hotel, right on the sea-front, bats well above its 3-star rating in terms of service and facilities.
The staff are friendly and helpful. You get your own regular table and waitress service in the dining room, which has commanding views over the channel in all directions. There's nightly entertainment with (good) singers and dancing in the ballroom if you want it, and plenty of scenic lounge areas in case of poor weather, but the highlight for us was the swimming pool. This is light and airy, with a great integrated spa-pool, immaculately clean and big enough to out-rank some pools in large chains we've visited. We only met one other swimmer during our whole holiday, so managed a proper swim. (There are no lockers for belongings and only a changing area - no cubicles.)
The rooms are a good size, well-furnished and clean, with comfortable beds and effective black-outs. With no air-con, we were told that some south-facing rooms got very hot, but the windows opened well & the views were lovely. The bathroom was well-equipped and, again, immaculately clean. Despite the hotel being full for most of our stay, we heard very little noise from other guests or the music.
My only reservation is that the hotel stands on a short but very steep slope up from the front. There is a ramp to the front door and lift inside, but the hotel has lots of little level changes between rooms, so I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with mobility issues.

Many thanks for your comprehensive, complimentary and informative review it makes the hotel sounds a great place to stay which we hope it is. You are right to say the hotel has level changes to over come this we offer a rear car park which brings you in at lift level which helps. We hope you will return one day. All the best Gill

We stayed at the Channel View Hotel for 4 days and were made welcome from the outset. The manager and staff were so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Our room was a good size and the large bathroom even had a window!
Although were were a coach party of almost 30 people, we didn't have a set meal time, or menu. The choice was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented, with generous portion sizes. Even breakfast was served at the table, rather than the more common buffet style, with everyone queuing at the toaster. For those without a car, the shuttle bus stopped outside and made a circular route, taking in the beach, local shops, bus and railway stations. I highly recommend this hotel.
