Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Took my 92 year old mum for a holiday. The hotel staff are really first class for their willingness to help and for their attentive service,nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel has a great location for anyone who enjoys sea views and sunsets, and although the building is in need of some upgrading the rooms are spacious, well equipped and very clean.
Lots of guests were clearly regulars, always a good sign!

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

Stayed just for one night and breakfast. Night porter very helpful when I got there late. Staff at breakfast friendly. Food quick and tasty. Great view overlooking Solent.

The only downside was the decor/ambience of the room/corridors which was tired and in need of renovation.

Made our second visit to the New Holmwood this week and it was if anything, better than the first (and that took some beating).

Our suite (Uffa Fox Suite) was perfect - with a large bedroom, exquisite bathroom and spacious and comfortable lounge.

Staff were beyond helpful. Food was as good as you will find anywhere on the Island - we used the restaurant bothy for evening dinner and breakfast. Views from the restaurant and terraces are outstanding.

Stay here for a totally risk free and comfortable hotel experience.

We stayed at the Holmwood Hotel during a family wedding of around 50 people in June 2014. My wife was planning and organising the wedding on behalf of her sister and due to living in Suffolk, we had to bring everything with us.
David meg with my wife on the Friday evening and assisted in anyway possible to make her task so much easier. David and his staff were turkey exceptional and nothing was too much trouble throughout the event. And definitely made for a memorable day.
The hotel itself was very clean and fresh with modern features which catered superbly for our large family including young children. The food was fantastic, not only for the wedding dinner but for the breakfast the following morning and the bar had a wide and varied range of drinks to cater for all ages.
In short we will definitely stay at the hotel again in the future and would highly recommend the hotel for a wedding or holiday, as everything you need is under one roof.
Thanks ageing David, your lovely wife and all of your staff for a wonderful wedding and a great stay.
Regards
Barry Simpson

Room Tip: Choose a suite as each has a modern theme and is very spacious.

We have just returned from a four night stay at the New Holmwood Hotel on the Isle of Wight. What a fantastic experience. The hotel bent over backwords to accommodate our needs, we were travelling with a couple who have mobility problems and from the first email the staff were helpful and informative. The room which would be suitable for disabled people more than met the needs of our friends. The staff were friendly and super helpful. The food was fantastic, beautifully served and presented and so so good. There was nothing we disliked about the hotel and would certainly go back there if ever back on the Isle of Wight. Can only congratulate the management and staff of the hotel and give them all a big thank you, you made our trip even better.

This could be one of the best - staff uniformly excellent, service brilliant food very good, location unbeatable, and we would definitely stay here again, but.....the hotel is in need of some refurbishment and a lot of TLC. The hotel's photographs, as one would expect, show the best side; the furniture and bathrooms however are showing their age, and first good impressions quickly fade. The same is true of the public spaces, comfortable but tired. Having said all that, if you're looking for comfort, service and location, this is hard to beat.

Room Tip: Go for sea-facing.
