These terms and conditions are the ‘small print’, the bit which is rarely read in advance of bookings, and even though this is similar to the standard wording used in many hotels and guesthouses, we really recommend that you take the time to read it.




These ‘Booking Terms & Conditions’ are between Channel View (Boutique)Hotel and the person or legal entity making the booking. These Booking Terms are governed by English Law and apply to all Bookings.
