Hands down, one of my top 5 best experiences ever! I cant for the life of me remember the beautiful ladys name who greeted us, however she was an English lady and just divine.

We were really looking forward to celebrating an important milestone at Villa Howden but were disappointed overall. There really isn't much of an atmosphere in the restaurant. It would be greatly enhanced if the piano was utilised to create an atmosphere. A baby screaming during dinner didn't help either, although not the restaurant's fault. One goes out to get away...

Would love to go back for another peaceful and distressing weekend away. The staff are lovely, attentive, easy going and make you feel very welcome - nothing is too much for them. The restaurant...

The service on arrival was amazing. They give you a drink and a tour around the property. When you return from your tour your bags are in your room. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are amazing with a free mini bar, nespresso machine and various bathroom products. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was soooo good,... More

My husband and I enjoyed a 2 day stay over the October Long Weekend to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and my Birthday. Villa Howden would have to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The restaurant is first class and the breakfast that is included in the deal was the best we have ever sampled. Our... More

Bed was comfortable with good linens and there was a complimentary mini bar on offer. There was a coffee machine in the room and ample snacks for later. The bathroom was well... More
