From stunning views from the hotel of the stretch of the coast from torquay to Brixham to comfortable accommodation, with attention to detail, from the start to finish we felt welcome and cared for all with great customer service. The room was beautiful and well finish, cleanliness being top of the list I would definitely stay here again and would recommend the stay

Channel View Hotel Paignton Devon
The Channel View Hotel was a lovely family run hotel with an excellent position on the sea front. Peter and Ruth where very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was excellent and we could not fault anything with our stay. Would recommend it . Steve & Liz Northamptonshire

How a local hotel should be run
Upon arrival and during my short stay I was made very welcome - a very well run family business with a particular attention to having a spotless environment. I arrived late and missed the evening meal, however they rustled up a delicious spaghetti bolognese at a moments notice due to my work commitments not giving me time to go seek food elsewhere. This is the type of service that sets a family run business apart from your generic corporate travel inns! I'd overheard comments that one previous guest thought the hotel dog was a crazed animal - this is simply not the case - rather its a small well mannered quiet animal that is friendly towards everyone!! (...and i'm a cat person!) Would recommend this hotel to any people looking for a scenic view of the bay with ample parking.

Recommended - stunning views, lovely hosts
Ruth and Peter are both super-friendly and are passionate about Paignton and the surrounding area. The setting and the view is brilliant, their service is very personal and they make a tasty breakfast with gluten-free options available.

Could be better value
The proprietors of this hotel are lovely, the bar and restaurant area are very well presented. We stayed in room 11 which was on the top floor with gorgeous views to the front. The hotelier have us a forum to chill in for breakfast which seemed sensible - choose your cooked breakfast ready! Unfortunately this is where our positives end. The room was relatively small and the bathroom (shower room) was cramped and made me feel drunk, the floor was not level and the ceiling very low, tall people beware! There was no air con or fan available and the room was unbelievably warm even with the window open, unfortunately compounded by a thick and unevenly filled duvet. The breakfast was overall disappointing with cheap ingredients that lacked flavour, not what I expected for the cost of the room. The area where the hotel is situated is not the greatest but that's not the hotels fault but again the price was steeper than I really think it warranted. The hotel was obviously perfect for others, just not to our taste.
