“A good tour hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

I was one of a 14 person tour group from Scotland,staying 6 nights here. Another tour group was also there for part of the time. Ignore the hotel facade, the interior is much better, lounge, bar area, dining room etc. A very clean comfortable en-suite room in the V wing with TV and tea/coffee facilities.Plenty hot water. Bring your own shampoo.
Breakfast 08.30 and Dinner at 18.30, food plain but well cooked and served and menu choice varied each evening. Apple crumble and custard and Bread and butter pudding, excellent. Staff friendly an helpful. No children when we were there.
If no car, very handy for buses (100 yards) to all parts of the island and so much to see and do, or you can just relax in the town, on the beach or stroll.
My Highlights - Osborne House (Queen Victoria died here), Carisbrooke Castle (Charles I imprisoned here), Brading Roman Villa, the Old Battery at Alum Bay, Shanklin Chine and old village and, for all ages, Godshill and its Model Village.

Room Tip: Room V 108, 1st floor at the back was quiet and very clean. I never visited the others.

Hotel is located within walking distance to a beautiful Sandown bay and very close to centre of town. Has a workable 24h bar and restaurant serving delicious dinner. Ensuite bathroom. Room also had a beautiful sea view. Staff were very professional, helpful and supportive. There is planty of parking at seafront. Sandown is the premium and greatest knownbeaches with miles of soft golden sands topped by Sandown's pleasure Pier.
Enjoy your stay at Tarvic2 Hotel.

The hotel wasn't as bad as we were expecting. We came from the station and was quite a walk but very pleasant in the sunny weather. The outside of the hotel is falling apart and needs some repair. That was a bit of a shock! The bar area just inside reception was also falling apart. The ceiling looked like it was going to fall down! The staff were very friendly and we were booked in straight away. He also gave us some tips on where to go in the evening - unprompted.

The room was ok. Simple but clean. Can't really fault it for the price. The only major problem was the noise from the other rooms/hallway. We could hear everything that was said next door and children were racing up and down the small hallway outside the room early in the morning. This was made louder by the odd door that was on the room. They need proper doors that go right to the floor!!!! Also think about some sound proofing...

Also the room was REALLY hot. I assumed that the window would be locked as it was a family hotel but I didn't realise until the morning that it wasn't. A fan would have been nice.

Early check out - 1030am. Far too early for us!

We didn't have breakfast but it was cheap at only £4.

If you get a bargain and don't like your privacy, it is ok.

Room Tip: As for sea view - only £5 extra but worth it

This hotel faces straight out onto the sea so the view, if your room is at the front can be good.... mine was out the back so the view was poor. The hotel is very basic and tired looking. The staff are polite and friendly. The rooms are basic but clean and the beds are poor as they are hard. The hotel redeems itself in that it is very cheap so basically you get what you pay for. If you own a car be aware that the parking spaces amount to a total of 5 if you are lucky so don't bank on being able to have one.
I cannot rate this hotel any higher than average given that the less than average quality of the place is lifted by the prices charged. So please don't go along expecting too much.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if they have one.

I stayed at the Tarvic 2 with my dad for 4 nights and have to say that the staff really do make this place. They are warm and welcoming, helpful and friendly. The food was good and the room more than adequate. The shower brilliant - powerful and easily regulated. The bar prices are surprisingly low for a hotel. I would willingly return. If you're travelling to Sandown, consider the Tarvic 2.

Room Tip: The rooms on the Tara side of the hotel seem to have been refurbished more recently than those on th...

I was there for one single night. Room was very clean and spacious for one single person. I enjoyed the english breakfast. It was not a buffet one, you have to be seated. The hotel is well located in Sandown, buses stop are very close and you are in front of a beautiful beach.
