I stayed at this hotel for three days on business with a team of people. It is an older hotel but right on the front and with spectacular views of the Solent. I was immensely impressed by everything. I stayed in the Uffa Fox Suite which is spacious consisting of a main bedroom area and then a sitting room. The... More

We were upgraded to a room with a sea view which was large and very comfortable. The staff were charming and very helpful. The restaurant overlooks the sea and the food was delicious - gravadlax followed by lobster for thirty quid. Very good wine for £18.50. There were cheaper wines. We'd definitely recommend the hotel and restaurant.

Took my 94 year old mother for a cream tea to the New Holmwood today and apart from the excellent cream tea (also very reasonably priced) the Restaurant Manager was so kind in the trouble she took to help my mother who was in a wheelchair, putting extra ramps in place and opening up a separate restaurant area which was...

Took elderly friends to watch the marine activities as it is a great location. Initially went for drink then decided to eat and as always excellent. Shame about the coffees just so bad, suggest cafetieres or even kenco millicano just do not try to make Latte/Cappucino unless it is prepared on an espresso machine!

Just back from a lovely weekend at this hotel. Our rooms were good, the view was great, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and very helpful. There was a wedding reception at the hotel whilst we were there, but it did not interfere with or affect our stay in any way. Would certainly return.

Took my 92 year old mum for a holiday. The hotel staff are really first class for their willingness to help and for their attentive service,nothing was too much trouble. The hotel has a great location for anyone who enjoys sea views and sunsets, and although the building is in need of some upgrading the rooms are spacious, well equipped... More

Stayed just for one night and breakfast. Night porter very helpful when I got there late. Staff at breakfast friendly. Food quick and tasty. Great view overlooking Solent. The only downside was the decor/ambience of the room/corridors which was tired and in need of renovation.

Made our second visit to the New Holmwood this week and it was if anything, better than the first (and that took some beating). Our suite (Uffa Fox Suite) was perfect - with a large bedroom, exquisite bathroom and spacious and comfortable lounge. Staff were beyond helpful. Food was as good as you will find anywhere on the Island -... More
