About Us

The Channel View Hotel sits just 15 yards from a gorgeous, long, sandy beach, but away from the hustle and bustle of Paignton town and Torquay.  Perfect for a tranquil and relaxing holiday, a special celebration or cosy romantic break.

The stunning panoramic views from our sea-view rooms and relaxing conservatory stretch from Thatchers Rock in Torquay all the way around the bay to Berry Head in Brixham, with never ending changes in scenery. Sunsets are truly amazing, especially sitting on the terrace, with a nice cold glass of wine from our licenced bar.

Spread over 3 floors, all our bedrooms have modern en-suite facilities, with complimentary tea and coffee, hair dryers, digital TV's, free WIFI, and other small, welcoming touches which you would expect from a small family-run hotel.

After enjoying your lovely breakfast, cooked fresh to order, you could have a lazy day around the Hotel, or take a short level stroll along the seafront into Paignton town centre.  For a slightly longer walk, go over the hill and down into the busier Torquay Marina and maybe catch the boat taxi over to Brixham Harbour for lunch. Buses run to most of Torbay every 10 minutes, and we are only 5 minutes away from Paignton train station where you can enjoy the delights of our famous steam railway. There are many wonderful attractions within a short travelling time, and if you bring your own car we have a large, free car park too.

Return after your day out to enjoy an optional home-cooked meal in our restaurant and we do really pride ourselves on the variety and quality of our food. There is normally a group of people enjoying a chat in our licenced bar or conservatory each evening, or you may prefer an after dinner stroll out to enjoy the sunset.  We are quite close  to local theatres and cinemas, and there is always something to do if you can tear yourself away from the view.

We open all year round, and a very warm welcome awaits you.  We would be delighted to collect you from the local train or coach stations if you tell us in advance, and we will do what ever we can to make your stay as comfortable as possible so will consider most requests.  Why not give us a try? We're sure you'll be glad you did, most of our guests have been returning for over 20 years, sometimes many times per year.

Our aim is simple, home comforts, good value and service with a smile!
