One Holyrood buildings are situated in the historic center of Newport and are statutory Grade II listed. They date from at least the 17th century (there are two date marks visible). The buildings have had many uses over the years, as a Bakery and in the 1940’s as a Gentleman’s Outfitters and most recently as a Picture Gallery.

Prior to its renovation the buildings were very neglected and in a poor structural condition. It has undergone a total renovation & conversion under the architect Richard Holden of the London practice Holden Harper with decorative finishes by David Genty.

The rooms at One Holyrood B&B have been individually designed with quality, character and comfort as a priority. Accommodation is spread out over three floors of this Grade II listed building and though having undergone total restoration the building has maintained its charm and architectural integrity.
