The restaurant here is very high quality and enjoys stunning views over the solent. One warning though is to check and double check the ingredients of meals. For those with allergies or enzyme issues this is critical as even though it does not state xxx included in a menu choice you may well find that it does. Having checked the... More

Our rooms were spotless and the staff were really kind and friendly. We stayed at this Hotel last March as we have relatives living on the... More

Revisited the Holmwood Restaurant for my wifes hm hm Birthday. Great to return, still a friendly greeting and good menu. We had a very good A la carte 3 course dinner, well cooked and lovely and hot, good wine selection and coffee in the lounge to follow. Friendly and attentive staff, all in all great evening.

We stayed here for 1 night during a conference and had a fantastic stay. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. Food was of a very high standard and we were upgraded to a seaview room. Perfect.

We had a gorgeous meal, well cooked and served by pleasant and accommodating staff. Our meal consisted of Chicken Parfait, Lamb shanks and Pannacotta. Each course was absolutely gorgeous! Our stay at this wonderful seafront hotel was only marred by a particularly ignorant family with a pre-school boy who was spoiled and not controlled by his ill-mannered parents. Their dealings...

I have been visiting this Hotel for several years now for all sorts of functions, celebrations etc. and have been meaning to write a review for a while. I cannot fault the atmosphere, service, attention to detail, food, facilities and friendliness of the staff. Attended a function yesterday evening which fulfilled all the above accolades yet again.

We had a short 3 night stay at the Holmwood and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We ate in the restaurant the first night and had the set menu (£24 per head for a four course meal). The food was fantastic as was the service and the view of the Solent from the dinning room. All the staff (from chambermaids to... More
