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...

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

Attention to detail was amazing from the gorgeous decor, luxurious amenities and superb service. We loved the high tea, salivated over dinner and completed our wonderful stay with a delicious breakfast. The service was incredible. Compliments to Vim the manager who was very attentive throughout our stay!

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.

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.

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
