Holmwood Guesthouse
Ranked #2 of 10 Cowes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2017 via mobile

We stayed here for two nights, a lovely B&B with everything you need, the hostess was both welcoming and informative. Really clean and tidy rooms with all requirements catered for.
Breakfast was spot on with a gourmet touch.
We would definitely return and recommend to all. A great and friendly service that helps make a stay memorable.

Everything about Holmwood is of the highest quality, and it is one of the best guesthouses we have ever stayed at. Tastefully furnished with good facilities and a superb breakfast. The service is excellent.

Easy check in even though we were late, room was lovely, well made up and a good size with a king sized bed. Small bathroom but very user friendly with a nice shower and floor. Toiletries were provided and I thought were just what was needed when here for a night out.
Jill was really nice we met her the next morning and breakfast was great. Cooked and continental type breakfast with real coffee.

Room Tip: Rooms include breakfast but cottages have a spa and are a little bigger/self contained.

We spent a couple of nights here. Wonderful sleek design, large comfy bed, fabulous shower. Excellent service: great recommendation for dinner (and made the reservation for us), provided beach towels, advice as to places to shop, eat etc.
Excellent location for the key activities: 10 minutes to the Koala conservation center and 15 minutes to Nobbies and Penguin Parade.
We did not partake of the breakfast option-however we saw the breakfast and it looked lovely.

We spent three nights at Hollywood and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the garden room which was lovely and bright. The bed was really comfortable. When we checked in we were made to feel welcome and given useful information about the Island. Breakfast was really good and we particularly enjoyed the fruit salad. The guest house is far enough away from the centre to be really quiet but near enough so that you can walk to everything . A really relaxing and lovely stay.
