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

We arrived at the hotel ad hoc having been let down by our original holiday provider, but the staff were great and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. They found us rooms immediately and even gave my parents a free upgrade. We loved the little touches in the rooms such as bottled water and sweets, and had... More

Myself and my colleague stayed here for one night. I can't say impressed I was with this hotel. First of all we were both upgraded on arrival. The rooms were excellent, and the staff were so helpful from the minute we arrived,right through to our departure the following day.

This is the third occasion we have stayed at the New Holmwood. The kindness of all the staff is remarkable and the quality of the service, from reception through restaurant to the chamber maids is consistently high. As Danielle M says the food, always good, was even better this time & yes the view is great during Cowes Week. One... More
