Great served breakfast in the morning and dinner was excellent in an amazingly simple but elegant dining room with lots of windows! We are touring Tasmania and only wished we had... More

I stayed here for business due to lack of available accommodation in Hobart, and will definitely revisit when next in Tasmania for personal reasons. Is a boutique hotel, with ten rooms only, in a beautiful setting, the Villa itself is a lovely building and has been decorated very tastefully with excellent attention to detail, but the defining point about this...

I have deliberately left some time elapse before adding my review on Villa Howden, through both the normal demands of life dictating that I have only now had the time, and to allow a fair perspective on my experience. I am, through requirements of my business, internationally well-travelled and have high expectations through experience, and I research well before choosing... More

I was at the reception counter when I saw a lady who had just checked out, rushed in to write something on the comments book. I was shocked to see this written. " Hotel beautiful. The rudest and most unfriendly staff." I thought the reception lady who served me the day before when I checked in was friendly and helpful.... More

Service-extremely poor This is an example of how bad service will ruin the experience. We arrived at the dinning room at 8.25am and informed the staff regarding our departure time at 10am and to serve our breakfast as soon as possible. We also informed that some of the kids in our party needed to take medication after the meal. Over... More

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at stunning Villa Howden recently (December 2015) and were lucky enough to be there for a few nights. We wanted to post this feedback to help others looking to sojourn in a gorgeous boutique property in a great location. We had two rooms booked as we were travelling with my parents and both... More

A beautiful hotel. Lovely service and grounds. Very special. Great also for birdos being on the water with large garden area. There is also a pool which has a beautiful outlook. Close to Hobart by car or bus.

The surroundings are serene and peaceful and pleasant. Unfortunately our room -No 5 "La Poule Doree" wasn't ---for our two night stay.
