A super review. Thank you so much. You have made special mention to a few items: The food produced from our head chef, Andy. Great food with a good choice. You have also stated about the south facing gardens with private path taking you close to the beach, this is a big advantage. You enjoyed the evening times with Brian,... More

My wife and I stayed for a week in June 2015. We had the " Admirals Room " and it was brilliant. Very comfortable and a lovely view.

Quite central but a good area for peace. Family run and could not do enough for you. Food was great and especially pleased that my veggie meals were so freshly prepared. Hotel also offers coach outings themselves.Limited local buses for those unable to walk the brief way to town or beach.

Another great review with the emphasis on customer service - thank you. Customer service is such an important factor for holiday makers, get it wrong and guests will not return. If you are looking to take another break in Torbay in the future, please consider returning to the Howden Court Hotel. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Peter Proprietor More

I have stayed here twice now as part of a large group, and both years the service has been excellent, going above and beyond. The staff were friendly and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable, even providing us somewhere to rehearse. My rooms have been comfortable both times I have stayed and the bar in the evening... More

I booked the wrong day but this was no problem as they were able to change the date for me, and instead of a single room I was put in a double room. Room was very clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and it was a lovely hotel, not far from the sea front. Would certainly book again.

Rather than the single room I had anticipated, I was given a double room which was very comfortable. Bathroom was in need of updating, but it was very clean. Saniflow toilets seem to be the norm for upper storey rooms which are noisy when flushed - a bit of an issue on the last night when the next-door room was... More

Thank you for providing us with a great review. We note your comments regarding the Saniflow toilets (we have 2 of these that were installed before we took charge of the hotel). Thankfully this did not seem to have spoiled your stay. Your parents stayed in a room on the ground floor, you have stated how nice this room was,... More
