My wife and I recently (April 2015) held our wedding at the New Holmwood Hotel. From start to finish it was an great experience. Initially having been to look at other venues I was starting to feel deflated that we were unable to find somewhere we liked and staff we could trust to deliver the day we wanted. Then we... More

The hotel is well situated with stunning views, clean comfortable rooms, the staff are very friendly and service excellent. A good menu selection is available and service in the restaurant is also excellent. I would look no further than this hotel when I next visit the island.

The New Holmwood Hotel is a treat. Everything just right from the friendly welcome when you arrive until the time you leave. Our standard room (no. 19) had a view of the sea across the road interrupted only a little by roofs outside the window. The hotel is in a quiet location with hardly any traffic passing, just how I...

an excellent value for money hotel with friendly helpful staff. We will be staying there again. It is right next to the beach and within easy walking distance of the town centre and all the bars/restaurant's

My wife and I stayed having booked a 'winter break' deal for 1 night. The Hotel was, for me at least, slight tired and lacking in character and I found the bed uncomfortable, personally I do not like a hard bed. However, overall the hotel was comfortable enough, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent,... More

This was a real find and more than reasonably priced. It is delightfully old fashioned - meant as a real compliment - the building itself is right on the sea front facing North to Southampton and easy enough to find (via the chain ferry) once off the ferry. The staff are welcoming, efficient and cheerful. The room was spacious, spotless... More

Stayed here with my 95 year old mother who is in a wheelchair. Although the building is old (with a really interesting history) there are ramps provided so that you can get around the hotel in a wheelchair. The location is great, right on the sea-front, the rooms are airy with everything you need, the food is absolutely delicious, with... More

The New Hollywood Hotel at Cowes has everything - immaculate accommodation, friendly, efficient staff, superb food and a view across the Solent. We were absolutely delighted from the minute we arrived. Will definitely be going back. The Red Funnel Southampton - Cowes Ferry is near and this was all booked for us by the hotel with emailed confirmation by return!... More

Many thanks to David and all his staff for a wonderful stay. Everyone was very friendly and the service at breakfast and in the bar were excellent. We only stayed one night so did not sample the restaurant - although our family on the Isle of Wight tell us it is excellent. Our room was comfortable and very clean and... More
