Ambience Recently renovated to a high standard
Check in and out was efficient and friendly. Level of privacy was out standing. The garden setting is a great asset. The bed was excellent. The spa bath was an asset.
The TV and DVD were not easy to work out and there was no manual. I was not aware that there would not be any service on the second day of the stay, i.e. none came in to tidy up. That seems a pity when the tariff for the second night is the same as that for the first.
Breakfast was Amazing Comfortable Bed Excellent Decor Quiet Short walk to Cowes restaurants
Very comfortable, quiet pleasant street.
Staff was friendly, even lent us rugs for the penguin parade. Location was very good, just 10 mins by car to penguin parade and easy to find. The molton brown toiletries.
Couldn't connect to the internet. Kitchen area was a bit cramp for cooking.
The room is elegant and delicate, bring us a very nice experience and wonderful rest.
Quilt is too heavy
Very picturesque building and surrounds, beautifully designed and decorated apartments with many thoughtful touches. Easy walking distance to restaurants and cafes even in gale force winds and rain! Comfortable driving distance to the penguin parade and other attractions. Highly recommended boutique accomodation for a weekend or longer.
Would have been great to have the option of breakfast for the smaller apartments.
In general the Cottage was pleasing in design and facilities.
The conflict between wardrobe door and the drawer below. The very slow fill to the Spa. The tiny size of Gowns provided.
The bed was sooo comfortable and the surroundings were very relaxing. Such a beautiful place to stay and can't wait to go back.
There's nothing that I can fault with Holmwood Guesthouse
decor, location, comfort!
Very comfortable. Garden added serenity and privacy.
Everything including kitchen cupboards was very high. Could have used more storage space
I think the best way to sum up our stay is by first mentioning that my husband doesn't normally like B&Bs. Fullstop. Something about too much chintz and country cooking. Well we both LOVED our stay at Holmwood! The room was lovely and fresh, the sitting and breakfast areas clean and beautifully kept, and the bathroom my personal favourite (I loved the pebble effect tiles and the Molten Brown toiletries). From the moment we arrived late on a Friday, Jill was the consummate hostess. We were greeted with 2 glasses of shiraz and a plate of nibbles..most welcome after a long tiring drive down after work that day. The breakfasts were delicious and even my coffee-snob husband commented on the great coffee they whipped up. Nothing was too much trouble, from letting us store our bikes on the balcony in front of our room to making us an extremely early coffee on the morning of our departure (we left about 7am to get back for nephew's birthday party!). Husband and I spent three very happy days walking, cycling, swimming, surfing and eating our way around PI -and the location of Holmwood made all of this a breeze. Thank you for such a wonderful stay; we both felt totally refreshed and recharged afterwards. Highly recommend :)
The room was beautiful!
Loved the friendliness and hospitality, the décor of the room , the huge bed, the flexibility of breakfast times and the central location of the house. And those delicious biscuits!!!
Facilities for boiling the kettle could have been better- a bit cramped.
Our hostess Jill was an absolute professional. - We felt very welcome. - All toiletries and amenities were available, including beach towels on request. - Breakfast was first class in quality and quantity. - Very clean and homely environment. - Definitely recommend to other visitors seeking quiet accommodation with first class treatment.
This is not a fault of the accommodation perse, but rather an aggravation regarding the outside parking.... The trees adjacent to the available parking dripped sticky residues onto our new car, that required special treatment to remove.
Clean and neat and tidy. Jill was an amazing host. Breakfast was fantastic.
Plenty of room within the rooms. Lovely garden setting. 'Real' coffee on arrival and with breakfast. Tea/coffee and fridge facility within the room. Friendly advice on local attractions.
Air conditioner in room didn't work wonderfully- however it had been an exceptionally hot week and evaporative cooler didn't cope. There was a fan within the room that did keep us comfortable.
Jill and her team set the scene for a romantic stay. We were there at New Year & enjoyed a lovely BBQ on the deck with other guests and friends. Great touch. Fabulous place to stay. Barb & Mick Busselton WA
Our hostess,Jill greeted us on arrival with a cappuccino and her home baked shortbreadand gave us a map and helpful suggestions for what to do and where to eat. Breakfast was delicious and fresh and each morning Jill introduced the guests to each other so it we met some lovely international visitors. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed extremely comfortable. Overall a first class experience.
