We have just had a wonderful weekend at this hotel. The staff were SO friendly, cheerful and helpful, the rooms were lovely and the food excellent. Thank you all for making it such a special stay, including of course the chef behind the scene!

Good location, right on the seafront with some cracking views and only a few minutes' walk from the centre of Cowes. Staff all very efficient, friendly and smiley. Rooms spacious and comfortable. B&B rate of £75 or so for single occupancy of a double room in mid-January felt reasonable. The only negative thing I have to say about it is... More

Stayed at the New Holmwood on business for two weeks. Staff were excellent, attentive and helpful. I ate at the hotel and can recommend the food from the restaurant. I can recommend this hotel, if you are staying on the island.
