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

Friendly and efficient staff. Very welcoming. Nothing adverse to report, this is the best hotel I have stayed at for some time. The view from the restaurant is fantastic, it must be great during Cowes Week.

For the money we payed to stay here I would expect a bit more luxury. Instead there's very dated rooms with little to impress. Horrid shower curtains, limescale covered shower head. Could hear every single word and step from guests upstairs and heard every door bang all night. The view we had from our window was the fire escape. Also... More

The New Holmwood Hotel is a 19th century building situated on Egypt Esplanade to the west of the town of Cowes and overlooking The Solent. We’d not visited the Isle of Wight before and choosing a hotel out of season can sometimes be problematic so we decided to play it safe and selected New Holmwood Hotel partly for its location...

Simply put this the best hotel ever, that I have stayed in, EVER. David and Kathy have a special way of running the hotel and it works brilliantly, Never have we had to ask for anything as it always done. Food and service is always first class, the chef(s) cook superb food. Chicken nuggets and chips it is not. If... More

I got married at the New Holmwood on 25th October. From the outset the support and customer service has been second to none; the ethos of 'the customer is always right' still resonates here. David, the manager, can not do enough for you and it is clear to see that whilst he runs a tight ship, the staff are happy,... More

My daughter got married here and we stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is comfortable, and the staff is attentive without being intrusive. Also, I liked the fact that attention to detail was excellent, but the hotel is not pretentious. Having stayed many years ago at another Island hotel which was, I was a little concerned as I dislike pomposity,... More
