Throughly enjoyed a late booking via the Hotel which has recently undergone tasteful modernisation. The staff were very obliging, friendly and helpful. We found the food to our taste - would return again.

This was our 7th consecutive holiday at Howden Court, and we cannot wait for the 8th! We stayed in room 32 - a garden room. As always, the staff, the food and the cleanliness were great.

Thank you for providing this lovely review. You were happy that our location was close to all amenities and a stroll down to the seafront. This is a Grade 2 listed property built in 1860 and it still retains many of the architectural features of the period. We hope you return to enjoy another 'Fab' breakfast in the near future....
