Coastal comfort in Cowes.

Best Western New Holmwood Hotel is located at Egypt Point on the edge of Cowes, home to a boat load of world famous yachting events! Just a pleasant, waterfront walk away from Cowes town, you'll be close to the shops as well as the sea.

At the hotel itself, you'll be able to relax in one of our 3 comfortable lounges, one of which has large picture windows that look out onto all the shipping movements so you can watch cruise liners, racing yachts, family pleasure yachts, huge tankers and container ships in pleasant surroundings. You can also see the sea from our restaurant, lounge and guest rooms, where you'll have panoramic views of The Solent.
