Well done! Top rated customer service! My husband and I stayed for 2 nights 13th 14th June 2015. We were made to feel so welcome by front of house, staff in the restaurant and everyone working there. The hotel was very busy on Saturday with a large family party and they must have been rushed off their feet but there... More

A wedding venue with a difference. Excellent service, food and decor. Beautiful view of the Solent from the Dining Room. An old building of character built c.1870? Just the venue to sit back in the front lounge and enjoy watching the various yachts, launches, ferries etc.

I attended a wedding on June 6 2015. The hotel was a perfect venue. The food was superb, the view fantastic and the staff could not have been more helpful. We were there for 12 hours (as were some of the staff) and the time flew by.

We spent three nights at the New Holmwood Hotel for a relaxing stay prior to sailing back home on the Queen Mary 2 this past May. This hotel is beautiful and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. They could not do enough for us and went out of their way to help with anything We ate dinner at... More

This is an excellent hotel, with helpful, polite and friendly staff. The standard of both breakfast and Table d'hôtel dinner was far superior to many hotels where we have paid more, and received less! Our room was outstanding. We certainly will not look for any other hotel whenever we visit the island.

I spent all day at the New Holmwood Hotel in Cowes yesterday as a wedding guest, I just wanted to say to big thank you to all the staff who worked so incredible hard and made it an incredible day. The food and service was excellent and the staff were so friendly.

I can't thank David and his team enough for our incredibly attentive stay at the Holmwood hotel. When my elderly mother broke her ankle on our first day they couldn't do enough to help us & make our stay enjoyable & easy. Highly recommend it. Warm friendly staff who all have time to say hello.

It must be quite worrying for a hotel when asked if they'll accept a group of males over a weekend. Even at our age (early 50s) I sense a certain nervousness when making the booking. No problems here. Julian was efficient and helpful throughout the booking process and had obviously trained the staff well. Maybe it's because we're just a... More

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend. It is a comfortable hotel. Beautiful view of the sea. We had a fantastic diner, and we are used to eating in restaurants. Compliments to the chef cook! I do recommend this hotel for a short stay such as ours. It does have, like the whole Island, mostly elderly visitors.
