England is currently in a national lockdown. Whilst Channels Hotel will remain open, this unfortunately means that we are only able to accommodate guests staying for work purposes, and a small number of other reasons as set out in law.

The Channels Bar & Brasserie will be closed until a change of restrictions allows restaurants to open. We will continue to offer our ‘grab & go’ continental breakfast from reception.

Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
