“Group break,”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Nice clean hotel.Great location. Good sized rooms. Food good, generous portions. Would have given it more stars except only one lift 4 people maximum, and pricey bar tariff £2.80 for a pint of Lemonade.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room. Well worth the view.

We're delighted that you enjoyed the sea view from your bedroom window - it's beautiful to watch the sunrise!

I'm sorry that you felt the bar prices were too high - we are currently looking into these and hopefully you will find them more reasonable when you next visit the Trouville Hotel.

What a brilliant weekend (Friday - Monday) I had at this hotel. I travelled with a group of 90 line dancers and I didn't hear anyone complain about anything except the bar prices (I paid £4.25 for a white wine spritzer and then £3.80 for two teeny bottles of diet pepsi which was a bit of a shock!).
The hotel is right on the front at Sandown, literally a few steps across the road to the beach. The room I shared with a friend was spacious and clean and we had a small flat screen TV, tea making facilities, a hairdryer and an amazing view of the sea. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and there was always plenty of hot water.
We were on half board basis and the food was excellent, various choices on each course every night, and the staff were all pleasant and helpful. Plenty of cereals etc for breakfast and a choice of items for the 'Full English'.
The ballroom was the perfect size for us all to dance and there was a separate large lounge area which was very relaxing.
Overall this was a great place to stay - handy for the shops and pier at Sandown and with good bus services to other towns on the island. We walked (slowly) along the shoreline to Shanklin which took about 40 minutes. A few of us wanted to visit Osborne House and the receptionist organised a mini bus which cost £70 return, so with 13 of us going, it worked out at £6 each, which was much cheaper than local buses and much quicker too!
All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, friendly place to stay!

For all to see, the Trouville now has two dance floors, both are fantastic floors, the biggest floors on the Isle of wight,
we have just got back from a dancing break, doing ballroom, latin and Social sequence, was fantastic, staff are well informed, not the usual quick turnover of staff, have be going for 3 years now and staff are still the same, it's a family run hotel, and you can tell, they have you the customer as their priority not the dosh,will be going back again, lots of times,with all our dancing friends, the Alton Dynamic Dancers

I spent five nights at the hotel as part of a group of 50. There was another large group staying in the hotel at the same time so it is was nearly full. It is well situated on Sandown esplanade close to the pier but car parking is a distance from the main entrance in a side road so it is best to unload at the entrance before parking.

From the moment we arrived until we left we were well looked after by the friendly staff who were happy to attend to our needs however obscure. In particular, I want to mention Debbie at the front of the house always helpful, our waiter Adam, who looked after us well although our demands were diverse at times, and Cath who was always smiling.

Our room on the third floor was adequate for a short stay although I would not like to have had it any smaller. There was a double bed, hanging and drawer space, two chairs, a small desk and bedside table. There were tea/coffee making facilities and a small flat screen tv on a wall. It appeared a little tired, particularly the small bathroom, but was clean. The room had a sea view which was welcome and offered a beautiful sunrise if you were awake early enough.

I tended to walk up and down the narrow stairways with quite steep treads to the third floor although there was a lift that could squeeze in a maximum of four people.

The restaurant was well laid out and the meals were very good. Three course dinners were selected from a good menu that changed every day and they were always well cooked. Despite the hotel being full, the restaurant staff were very efficient and there were no delays in service that I was aware of.

The lounge was fairly large and there were few delays in getting served at the bar. This was the only area where the Internet could be accessed. Judging by the number of laptops, iPads and their equivalent around, I hope it is not long before access is available throughout the hotel.

As part of a large party, I cannot comment on the hotel's entertainment package as we had hired the ballroom on the second floor for the duration of our stay, and provided our own.

All in all a great hotel on the Isle of Wight and I have already initiated a return later in the year.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a sea view so make sure you have one if those. Beware the small rooms that ma...

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the hotel in February. It was arranges by a local coach company in Northumberland. The theme was a world cruise. Each night we were at a different port and had food from that country. All the food was very good and the staff very pleasant and attentive. The rooms were excellent and the public rooms good. Entertainment each night was of a high standard. Although the weather was cold it was a very nice break and we would happily go to this hotel again. All rooms have a sea view.
