We have just spent a magical night at the wonderful Villa Howden and what a fabulous experience it was. I was tired and stressed when we arrived there but left the next day feeling refreshed and totally relaxed. From the moment we checked into this stunning place we were made to feel very special by all of the friendly excellent... More

We loved our 2 nights at Villa Howden. Breakfast was amazing and the actual brekky room was just stunning. Our room was gorgeous - exactly as I expected from the website. We enjoyed our bubbles on arrival and this really set the scene for a magic stay. Wonderful setting, superb service. You really can't go wrong here. A charming, beautifully... More

What a beautiful setting for high tea. Even though booked in for a special birthday was disappointed prices were higher than normal due to Mothers Day. This would have been good to know when booking not when paying at end. Will ask the question before booking next time.

Hello MitchP72, Thank you for coming to Villa Howden to celebrate Mother's Day and enjoy a High Tea with your family. Our efforts to provide new menu items and larger quantities including a gift wrapped Rose for each of the Mothers and Grand Mothers in the room, we hoped would be suitable for the occasion.

A most charming classical intimate restaurant. It is somewhere lovely to go for a special occasion but then every time you dine should be a special occasion. The waiter settles you with water first, gives you a little time, attends to your drink needs and takes your meal order. The Menu is not large but has varied choices. The oysters... More

After previously spending a night at Villa Howden in August 2013, when my husband and I got engaged in April 2014 we decided to plan a small destination wedding, using Villa Howden as our reception venue and for our family's accommodation. We booked Villa Howden's 'elopement package' since we were having a very intimate wedding of less than 15 people... More

We escaped to Villa Howden for a dirty (mid) weekend. Others had the same idea. Setting is lovely, peaceful and with nice views (especially the tower rooms). The pool was lovely (we didn't use it but the setting was great) and the property was generally very nice. Alas, the service really let the property down. Cleaners were vacuuming the public... More

We appreciate your comments regarding Villa Howden. We aim to have our public areas cleaned in time before our guests check in, but this is not always the case as our rooms are our first priority. A glass of sparkling wine is always on offer for our guests as they arrive and we are very sorry you felt they were... More

We stayed at Villa Howden for 4 nights - something we rarely do as we travel around a country. This place however, was worth it. First of all the location is perfect. Its a superb base to visit the west world heritage area (e.g. Tahune Airwalk, Franklin, etc), Blackman's Bay, Bruny Island, Hobart and a nice day trip to Port... More
