Have stayed here in the winter and it was great, cosy, good food and sea view. However, equally to be recommended for a stroll out of Cowes centre. The lounge is open to non residents and serves the best coffee in a pot and the best baguettes ever. Lightly crisped, just the best! We go every year and I recommend... More

Service: As a small hotel New Holmwood manages to convey a very friendly and personal atmosphere, from the cleaning staff upwards and perhaps especially the more senior management who quickly recognise and greet guests staying several days. A special mention for the restaurant manager who made everyone feel they were getting her best attention. I often observed her being exceptionally... More

This hotel has the most splendid waterside location & at first glance might seem a tad old fashioned. But its none the worse for that-in fact it has a traditional warm & friendly ethos. Staff are very friendly and helpful. So here is the "but"... But, the quality & variety of the food on offer is absolutely extraordinary & this... More

We were a couple staying after my finacee arrived completed a 20-day cross-Atlantic sailboat race (me, being the saner of the two, arrived by plane). We had soggy clothes, a huge box that needed to be shipped to the states, laundry that needed doing, and in general just a lot of help. The staff was extraordinary. The dining room staff... More

The best things about this hotel are the lovely sea views from its terrace and the friendly and helpful staff. We also enjoyed our breakfasts, I particularly liked the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which were nicely presented and delicious. We had one evening meal here during our three night stay, which on the whole was very good and the... More

We were a party of five family members, staying for just one night. Due to travel we were too tired to go in search of supper elsewhere and so we chose to eat from the extensive bar meals menu. The staff were happy to serve us supper and drinks on the terrace and it was very pleasant with good food.... More

The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Located across the road from the waterfront with yachts sailing and ships passing as they enter and leave Southampton. The staff were exceptional as was the proprietor ( with a wicked sense of humour ) The food could not be faulted. The hotel is amongst the best we have stayed in and... More
