Each room is on the top floor of this lovely French inspired villa that is nestled in the hills of the Huon Valley in Tasmania, Australia. My view overlooked the lake and the estates courtyard, with a wonderful Juliet Balcony. My gluten free and vegetarian options were 5 star quality. So peaceful and all the staff were a delight.

A stunning property matched by the standard of service. This is somewhere you might save to go and stay at, as it is priced higher than average - however, what you get for your money is value and a great experience. The rooms, lounge areas and pool pavillion are top quality and the food in the restaurant is outstanding! Worth... More

Having spent just over a week travelling Tasmania with our two little girls, my wife and I decided to finish up with our last night at the Villa Howden. It just so happened to be Valentines night, which neither of us celebrate, but nonetheless, considering we were weary travelers with two young children, we were made to feel incredibly welcome....

From the moment we entered through the door the experience was AMAZING. The decor was inviting and sophisticated. Our welcome and tour was genuine and informative. The Vila room was romantic. Dinner and breakfast was faultless. The staff of Villa Howden are to be commended they are so welcoming and professional. I would 100% recommend this establishment to anyone. Would... More

We only stayed for one night, however, would have gladly stayed for longer if time permitted! We were very well looked after by the lovely staff. It was a bit hot during Summer but nothing a swim in their great pool couldn't fix. The food here is amazing - we elected to have the 3 course meal and were so... More

My girlfriends and I recently visited Villa Howden for their high tea and were very impressed. The food was generous and delicious. A great tea selection, I highly recommend their green tea. The staff are friendly and helpful and the villa and grounds itself are stunning. Just lovely all round.

The restaurant at Villa Howden has a very nice French atmosphere, light and airy and tastefully decorated. We had a super meal, better this time than previously 12 months ago. Entrée was the goat cheese crepe and this was my highlight. Others in our party had the abalone dish and oysters prepared in three ways. For the main, I chose... More

Hello all, This place known as Villa Howden does not sound like much, but once you stay a night or two a feeling of pure relaxation will became you :-) If you enjoy solitude then this place is for you. It is hard to find a place that makes you feel at peace, I love this place.

Perfect place to spoil someone special. We were made to feel very welcome given ,a brief tour, glass of bubbly and felt as though we were the only couple. Great features in the rooms as well as around the hotel. Food was really good, perhaps a touch slow to come. The skylight in our room did make for an early... More

Dear Tristan R, Thank you for writing your review, we appreciate the lovely comments you have made. Thank you also for the comment on the skylight. While it may be nice to wake up at early sometimes, a holiday is probably not the appropriate time! We will look at having a blind installed that guests can adjust to their liking.... More
