Visited Villa Howden for High Tea with a group of 10. A magnificent boutique hotel about 25 minutes from Hobart. The building was built in the 70s but looks like an Italian/French villa that has been there for 100+ years. High tea was divine. Loads of food, tasty sausage rolls, sandwiches, cakes, pastries, scones, jam and cream. All the group... More

The staff are lovely and the ambiance is very sweet indeed - although we did find the rooms to be a tad old. They have lovely room amenities and the location is tucked away which makes for a quiet and pleasant stay, but we wouldn't return. For a countryside B&B style stop over it was cute and charming though not... More

My wife and I drove from Hobart for high tea and had a great time. Nice dining room and were served with tea and coffee, sausage rolls, 3 types of sandwiches, mini chocolate muffins, lemon curd with fruit, scones with jam and cream, mini quiches, meringues, almond biscuits and little lemon cakes for $39 per person. The food was fantastic... More

We stayed for a couple of nights and found the staff to be very welcoming and friendly. The fireplace was a great spot to relax with a board game and a glass of wine. The Restraunt food was excellent for both breakfast and dinner. Highly recommended for a couples weekend escape.

Stunning views, friendly staff and wonderful rooms... A truly blissful, hidden oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I found Villa Howden relaxing from the moment we entered the impressive entrance. Love its expansiveness and the attention to detail (a library/games room - and a beautifully decorated piano room to have breakfast in or sip on a... More

We stayed at Villa Howden for 5 nights and had the most wonderful and romantic stay. The room was amazing. We chose the water view room that had the most beautiful views across the bay. The staff were lovely and very friendly. The breakfasts were great and we ate in their restaurant 2 nights. Loved the wine list too. It... More

Villa Howden is a spectacular hidden gem. Nestled amongst trees and with a beautiful view of the channel. It is only 20 mins from Hobart. I chose Villa Howden to take my wife away for a surprise night away. The moment we arrived I knew I had made the right choice. Venue is amazing and the buildings make you feel... More

We stayed at Villa Howden on the basis of favourable reviews and ratings. Our stay was a great disappointment , and well short of the advertised ratings.Having stayed at MONA and Henry Jones Hotel on this trip we are able to say it falls well short of its competitors. Whilst the building is charming and the location excellent, the dining... More

Visited Villa Howden for a second time in 18 months for High Tea and again was disappointed with the quantity and quality of food provided. Both times I found the experience over priced and not good value for money when compared to the Wrest Point Casino Revolving Restaurant High Tea. 3 small sandwiches, a couple of biscuits and few small...

Thank you for your feedback regarding our High Tea at Villa Howden. It is a disappointment also to us that on both occasions you were less than impressed. We prepare fresh High Tea items on site each week and have been held in high regard by locals for this very reason. We have changed the menu to suit some options... More

Lovely High Tea. The room was quite elegant, the food was delicious and the staff are excellent. It was $145 for three people which included a glass of bubbly, tea for two & a cappuccino. I can not remember all the food however there were sandwiches, quiche, biscotti, scones & a few other delicacies. It was very filling. Quite posh... More
