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...

Booked this hotel with some friends for 3 nights with breakfast. Our room was no 22 at the back of the hotel. It felt very cosy and lots of little touches e.g. Sweets, bottled water, chocolate, shower gels etc. The room was clean and plenty of storage. There were tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer in the room....

Stayed for 3 days including Valentine's Day. We have visited this hotel at least annually since discovering it via the Best Western website whilst looking for accommodation for a visit to Osbourne House.

Stayed for 3 nights only, and it was fabulous. All staff were friendly, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. (James came down to the car park on our arrival, and pushed me in wheelchair up the ramp to reception - wonderful) Our room (disabled access) was very convenient, and the restaurant was an absolute delight. Ate there every night, and without exception...

As ever, had a great time here. Lovely staff and management and delightful food and drink. My discovery this time was the Moroccan meatballs and couscous, utterly delightful. The dog had a great time too (very dog friendly) and didn't want to go home. Great views though it was foggy on one day. I asked management to sort out the...
