Trouville Hotel

Magnificently situated on the Esplanade, opposite golden beach and overlooking the bay, with the pier and shops close by this hotel is the prime location for your 4-night break. All ensuite bedrooms have telephone, TV and tea/Coffee facilities. Hotel has a lift.

Day 1

We depart our home area and make our way to the Isle of Wight, stopping somewhere suitable for lunch to be purchased. We arrive at the Trouville Hotel with time to relax before our evening meal.

Day 2

Our excursion today takes us to the lovely quintessential village of Godshill, thought by many to be the prettiest on the island. With its charming thatched cottages, medieval churches and tearooms. After we have eaten, we then make our way to Haven Street Station for a nostalgic ride on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Enjoy the special journey back in time. Breathe in the evocative smells of a real steam railway, while your eyes and ears thrill to the puffing and hissing of the steam engine as we pass through unspoiled countryside with breath taking views. We arrive back at the hotel late afternoon for you to freshen up before your evening meal.

Day 3

Dat at leisure at the beautiful Sandown, sheltered in its beautiful bay, with long stretches of golden sandy beaches. Spend the day relaxing and taking in the amazing scenery in your own time. With the sandy beaches and traditional promenade and pier you will find plenty to occupy your time.

Day 4

Today is a day where you should grab your camera! We board the coach and enjoy a scenic drive to Alum Bay, the bay is at the westernmost point of the island which undoubtably provides some of the most picturesque views in the Isle of Wight. As the day progresses we move onto Yarmouth, this historic port town sits at the mouth of the River Yar including a 16th century castle. As we begin to head back towards the hotel we have a final stop at one of the island’s hidden gems, the village of Calbourne, with the only working mill on the Isle of Wight you are in for a treat on your final stop of the day.

Day 5

Unfortunately today we have to say our goodbyes and head home. We return to Boston, making adequate stops along the way where our door to door service will be waiting to take you home.
