Isle of Wight
Friday 14 May 2021 (5 Days)
Welcome to the Trouville Hotel. The premier destination for Isle of Wight breaks, holidays and accommodation.
What makes the Isle of Wight so different is that there you will find the best of Southern England’s landscape features condensed into an area of just 147 square miles, all easily accessible and unspoilt by the many large developments to be seen elsewhere. Here, you can still find miles and miles of wild and beautiful coastlines, a green heartland of tranquility and an enchanting rural community almost untouched by modern urban pressures, it is little wonder why so many choose to stay on the Isle of Wight.
The weekly farmers’ markets in Newport and Ryde and monthly farmers’ market in Yarmouth are the perfect opportunities to sample local produce including the Island’s famous garlic. An excellent climate for viticulture, award winning wines have been produced by a number of vineyards, some being chosen for the Queen’s Jubilee Banquet.
Situated centrally on Sandown’s seafront, the Trouville Hotel in Sandown is the ideal location for an Isle of Wight Break.
Opposite the golden beach and with panoramic views over the sweep of Sandown and Shanklin Bay, the hotel offers the comfort and care for a well deserved break. The hotel’s 88 well appointed rooms, most with sea view, provide the facilities expected by today’s well travelled guest.
Relax and unwind, days can be spent lazing in the bars and lounge,watching the ocean liners pass and the world go by whilst enjoying the hotel’s complimentary WIFI facility.
The hotel comes alive in the evening, with live entertainment in the stylish and Island’s largest hotel ballroom. Out of season, the Trouville Hotel is a firm favourite for dancing holidays, renowned for line dancing, sequence, rock n roll and more.
The Trouville is the perfect venue for an Island break. We have a proud reputation for delivering high standards in food, service and hospitality. There are some great hotel deals on our special offers page, so there has never been a better excuse to pop across the Solent and explore our wonderful Island.

Ryde Farmers' Market takes place every Saturday 8.30am – 12.30pm. If you want to purchase quality produce that has been grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked or otherwise processed by the local stallholder, Island Farmers' Markets are the places to go.
We then continue to the picturesque town of Shanklin. The Old Village with its pretty thatched cottages and history, housing gift shops and tea rooms is the perfect spot for a cream tea or a light lunch.
