“weekend away”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

A clean, honest, budget hotel where we stayed for three nights from 17 May. The rooms are small but well decorated and the beds a little hard. The breakfasts are substantial but you have to book what you want for your evening meal at breakfast! There is no lounge as such but there are chairs and tables alongside the front windows. You could not relax and read a book during inclement weather so we used other hotels along the front to relax (in secret). The same goes for entertainment, there is none at the Tarvic so we went to other hotels along the front where the entertainment is good. We drove and found that we had to park at the roadside along the side of the hotel. The staff are friendly and attentive. In all honesty I would probably pay a little extra and stay at one of the other hotels in Sandown but if you want a clean, budget hotel with not bad food this one would do.

My friend and I stayed at the Tarvic 2 hotel with a coach party. We found the public rooms of a decent standard and our twin bedded room was basic but clean, though the beds were on the hard side.
The staff are great. They are friendly and helpful and made us very welcome.
The food was excellent. We had a choice of dishes at both breakfast and dinner. The bar prices were very reasonable and there was entertainment provided most evenings.
The hotel is in a good location. It is in the process of being refurbished but we did not find this bothered us at all.
Thank you to all the staff. You made our stay enjoyable.

we visited the tarvic for easter weekend. although the building from the outside looks a little tired and in need of a good refurb, inside the rooms are very basic but very clean and comfortable perhaps some of the rooms havent got particularly nice views but end of the day all you need is a room to rest your head for the night. the food was really really good and nothing was too much trouble to ask for. the manager came in to the dining room every day to update us on anything we needed to know. very very warm and friendly atmosphere, a credit to all the management and staff.

Right on the beach - very close to the Esplanade and High Street. Decent accommodation, okay heating, decent toilets - quite clean. I had a sea view room, although a building on the beach kind of obstructed the proper view from my room. The beds were a little creaky, but the duvets were very comfortable (we visited at a very cold time of the year).

The clean lobby and nice small garden in the front with sea view is very soothing. The owner made a very nice Coffee with Tia Maria for us. As mentioned in many reviews before the awesome friendly staff are the best feature of this hotel - could not have been better in hospitality.

We visited this hotel with a coach party on the very cold weekend in March when much of the country was getting snow. The hotel was a warm refuge from the biting wind coming down Channel. The food was excellent plentiful and varied with plenty of options for all tastes and diets. The room was clean. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I would willingly return to this hotel again. It has wonderful sea views and close to Sandown's High Street.

On the sea front at end of Sandown the hotel looks a bit shabby from the outside but has reasonable garden out front that won awards in previous years. generally quite clean probably due to the lack of carpets throughout the building making cleaning easier.(wood flooring)
bedrooms clean of reasonable size. bathrooms good nice shower pressure and no mould in shower.
beds were of concern even thou nice carved head and feet the mattress was solid but not lumpy so must quite new.
the wood flooring did not cause noise from above.
Food was acceptable . served quickly and was hot . breakfast was good.
overall for a budget hotel used a lot by coaches I found this one to be okay.

Dispite the somewhat mixed reviews here, we found this hotel to be excellent! Staff were friendly, very attentive, nothing too much trouble!

The room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint would be it was very hot, but I managed to turn off radiator and open window, so no great deal.

Breakfast was served fast and efficiently, was hot and fresh, as a chef, this is an important point for me!

I asked for them to order a taxi to the station as it was raining, this was no problem and one was promptly ordered. I would happily return here without any hesitation!!

Thanks to the management and staff for making our first stay on the IOW a great one! :-)
