Having booked this hotel for our bowls tour in 2015 I went for a preview visit and was absolutely amazed at the hospitality and friendliness of the staff, the food was first class and the rooms were of a quality you would find in a five star hotel.

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
