We have just got back from a wonderful two night stay at New Holmwood Hotel. We last visited a year ago and had a great time and decided that we would return.
From the booking, to our arrival and all during our stay every single member of staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. The Hotel is immaculate, the breakfasts are just blissful and the beds very comfy. Whilst we were there this weekend there was a wedding, and we had been advance warned of this and our room was located away from any disruption.
The rooms are well appointed, clean and fresh my only slight whinge is that in the room we had, room 5, the bathroom window had a lacy net curtain to provide some privacy ... a small roller blind would be a huge improvement there.
There are beautiful clear views across the Solent from the front of the Hotel and in particular it is very pleasant sitting in the dining room, lounge or on the terrace. You couldn't be much closer to the water unless you were on the beach!!
A twenty minute walk takes you into Cowes where there are many shops, bars or coffee shops and yet more waterside views en route.
I totally recommend this Hotel for a break. We will be heading back soon!
