We were in the West Country to see some old friends and settled on Howden Court after reviews here and elsewhere. On telephoning to book the room I was certain we had chosen well having chatted a while with Peter, the hotel owner. We booked the Admiral's room for the first two nights but as it was unavailable for the... More

We went to Howden Court last year and will be returning shortly. With the price we paid, we never expected too much. We were astounded at the value for money. It was too cheap for what it offered us. It has to be the best hotel we've stayed in for customer service. A lovely coach driver picked us up from... More

Enjoyed our weeks holiday in Torquay. We stayed in room 22 which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We could not fault the accommodation at all. Everyone was very helpful especially our waiter and waitress in the dining room. Entertainment was most nights , but the owner and Brian were a good double act themselves and kept the entertainment flowing.... More
