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...

Whilst on the sea front the public rooms have fantastic sea views, the bedrooms at the back of the hotel have no view at all. Having said that the rooms are a good size, clean and reasonably furnished.. The staff are fantastic, helpful, friendly and go out of their way to ensure everyone has everything they need. The breakfast is...

This was a return visit to Holmwood after we last stayed here over 10 years ago. It is a very pleasant 10 minute walk along the seafront from the centre of Cowes. With plenty of parking it has a big advantage over other Cowes hotels which have very few parking spaces or none at all. Rooms are average but adequate...

Mattresses need replacing. Did not sleep well at all. Bathroom floor dirty in corners. Plug in sink broken. Would find another hotel when we go back to isle of wight. Manager tried to make amends with changing mattress but sadly the new one was also same. But he did put 3 duvets on top to try and make it more...

I said back in 2016 that the New Holmwood was really good. Even better this year since we had over 50 diners there at our organisation's annual luncheon. A plentiful menu in advance gave us all a choice of our favourite dishes, including vegetarian options, that all arrived in sequence thanks to a smooth-running kitchen and friendly waiting staff. I...

We have just returned home after spending three nights here. The rooms are comfortable and extremely clean. Staff are a credit to the hotel, and so thoughtful when our friends needed to cut their break short and return home a day early. Breakfast was very good and the staff were pleasant and attentive. All in all a great find, close...
