Twenty three of us meet for lunch at this charming hotel last Friday, we were blessed with a beautiful sunny day. The Holmwood has a relaxing ambience, you feel it as soon as you walk through the door. The staff were attentive and chatty, our every need was catered for swiftly and with a smile. The room given over to...

All good here for my two night stay while walking some of the coastal path. Clean,well staffed, comfy and a nice location. The wi fi worked well which I have found is not always the case in similar hotels. It is however dated and all very M&S, although that did not really bother me.

The room we had was quite large for a UK hotel and had plenty of storage space. The bathroom was clean but somewhat dated and had a smell of drains at times. The breakfast/restaurant room had an excellent view of the Solent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It felt, however, like it was a bit trapped in...

Great family run atmosphere where nothing was to much trouble. We were even given a ground floor room with direct access to the outside which was...

We stayed here while taking part in the Isle of Wight Challenge. Staff were exceptional from beginning to end. From our booking they were attentive (we had to make some changes) down to the staff in the bar getting the chef to prepare our meal earlier than when they opened after we had finished our run. The room was clean...

I stayed in a standard room at the New Holmwood Hotel and ate in the restaurant. One of my colleagues had a suite, but I was sort of glad about my standard room, as the suite was quite dark/gothic like, whereas my standard room was clean and quite bright. My bed was fine; however, other colleagues complained that their mattresses...

A simple but comfortable hotel with good facilities and particularly helpful and friendly staff. Reasonably easy to reach from the Redjet terminal on foot, it's well placed for anyone spending time in Cowes.

Location was great, quiet and peaceful, just the way I like. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. Got a beach view room which gave me an extra satisfaction. Beds was comfy. The property itself looked dated. Did not get time to try out their restaurant. Overall, enjoyed my short but sweet...
