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

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...
