#1 of 21 in Newport
The rooms at One Holyrood B&B (Newport, Isle of Wight) have been individually designed with quality, luxury, character and comfort as a priority. Accommodation is spread out over three floors of a Grade II listed building. Having undergone total restoration the building has maintained its charm and architectural integrity. One Holyrood Hotel over looks a sun filled garden. A Continental breakfast is included in the room rate and we use locally sourced and seasonal Isle of Wight produce wherever possible. Breakfast is served from 8am, with an earlier time available on request. In good weather breakfast can be served in the garden. We're open all year round! One Holyrood is licensed. Our cafe is open all year round for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and our now famous Traditional Afternoon Teas. The latest addition to One Holyrood is a private function room, The Tool Shed. Just refurbished we are taking bookings for private events for up to 30 people.

In March, 2022, I was preparing for a couple of firsts! I was traveling to the Isle of Wight for the first time as I was to deliver my first TEDx talk! It was late when I arrived at Holyrood. I was famished, but the restaurant was closed and the delightful lobby sitting room was quiet. Sebastian to the rescue! The night manager/chef was more than happy to help. He whipped up a delicious poached eggs with smashed avocado on toast and I was fed and tucked into my lovely top floor room in no time. In the morning, I descended into the bright breakfast room overlooking the carefully landscaped back garden full of delicate spring flowers. I was served a fresh fruit salad with homemade granola and yogurt. And as I was pushing the plunger down on my individual French press of coffee, a tall older gentleman sat at the table next to me and gave a kind, "Good morning." We began chatting and it turns out this was the owner of Holyrood, Richard Holden. Years ago, he and his wife Sarah-Jane noticed what was then a dilapidated historic building in Newport. An architect, Richard envisioned the possibilities, and together with Sarah-Jane, they transformed it into Holyrood. Throughout my stay, I was surrounded by kind and caring team members, delicious food and comfortable pillows, linens and toiletries in my room. Thank you, all, for making my first visit to the island one I would love to repeat. Oh, and my TEDx talk experience went very well too!

Gorgeous unexpected oasis-large stunningly designed walled garden. A charming gem. Beautiful food-chef had even made a ‘plan B’ delicious Thai curry as the Balti on the menu had ran out! Impressive! Faultless service, so welcoming. We’ll be regulars for sure.

Stayed here during the Isle of Wight Story Festival and had a wonderful time... you'll find our Scrabble scores in the notebook in their cosy lounge! Wonderful sunlit room, great wallpaper everywhere, very helpful, friendly staff. We went in the winter, but the garden outside looked perfect for parties and outdoor gatherings. An excellent base for the Quay Arts centre in Newport, and for exploring further afield, such as Quarr Abbey and Osborne House.

Perfect place to stay for our new year break! The staff were welcoming and helpful. We stayed in Room 8 which was lovely with a view over the courtyard. Breakfast superb (and not added as extra). We will definitely return here on our next trip!

Wasn't planning to visit, but dropped in for lunch as we were nearby. Pretty, spacious, comfortable seating area, and a really interesting little garden that we will have to visit to eat outside when the weather is kinder! Looks like they had blankets to hand too. Our food was tasty and well presented, by polite, smiley staff, so all good. Various wines available by the glass, which always makes me happy and the pinot grigio rose was delicious. I didn't have the lasagne, but will have to next time as it actually looked home made and I am assured it was excellent. Coffees and shared a portion of cake for dessert. Lovely! Service wasn't rushed, which suited us, but maybe not for everyone, or those on a short lunch break.

We have never been here before. Our friends have and suggested we met there for lunch. We like the decor. Clean. Nice food. Friendly staff. Garden looks cute to sit in when weather is nice. Quirky buzzer on table to ring when u want to order more or pay bill. Goes through to a watch worn by staff. We sat buzzing and waited for quite some time to order dessert. The waiter had gone for his break but no one else had covered his buzzer. Human error. Otherwise would have been 5 out of 5 experience. We will return. (South african waiter did very good job upselling afternoon teas)

Was looking for a nice cafe to sit in n wait while my car was being serviced so thought I would pop into 1 holyrood as looked like a nice quaint little cafe. What a total disappointment, took an age to get served (didn't leven look that busy) and there was at least 4 people behind the counter all dithering about! The lady who finally brought my coffee (a half filled cafeteria) with no cup or condiments left it on the table then shuffled back to the counter. Hmm was I meant to drink it from the cafeteria I wondered? So I went up to the counter n asked for a cup which she had in her hand and was wiping the inside with a tea towel as she said there was a mark in it n didn't like the look of it! Omg why didn't she just give me a clean cup as I assume the mark was a coffee stain therefore it should have been put back in the dishwasher as it was obviously not clean. I didn't say anything as all I really wanted was a nice cup of coffee while I was waiting for my car. To add insult to injury the coffee was very weak, the cup was very small AND it was very over priced but I now realise it belongs to a hotel which maybe explains why it was so expensive! Will not be returning to this pretentious over priced cafe 😠🤨😠

Good quality food, friendly staff and lovely environment. One star left off as there is a 30 min break between serving breakfast and lunch. Everyone enjoyed their food and commented on how lovely the atmosphere was.

My husband and I stayed at One Holyrood hotel on 30/08/2021, for 7 nights. We received a warm welcome from Karen the manager. Our room was on the second floor at the back overlooking the beautiful gardens. We had a spacious and comfortable bedroom with a very comfortable bed. The minor downside to the room was that it lacked a wardrobe, we only had chest of drawers and a coat stand to hang our clothes The bathroom was also modern spacious , with a large vanity unit under the basin to hold all our toiletries, usually laking in hotel suites, a bath and a huge stand alone shower. The cafe bar was open during the day and had a good breakfast menu. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. The weather was good so we were able to eat occasionally in the beautiful gardens. The lack of evening meal provision didn’t bother us at all, as there are 3 good restaurants nearby, Hewitts, Burrs and da Vinci. Also on one occasion we had a fish and chip take away and Karen kindly left out plates and cutlery, for our use, in the dining room. The decor was very tasteful, a mixture of antique modern, with some quirky artwork. Parking was easy, just round the corner. A good central location for exploring the Isle of Wight, everything seemed to be just a twenty minute drive away, perfect. All in all a really lovely hotel and one we would definitely recommend.
