The grounds were relaxing and well maintained. The owner Peter was so helpful from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. He showed us several of his rooms and my advice...

Had a fabulous week at the Howden Court Hotel. Doncaster is a new pick up point for the hotel so I was very pleased and excited to be transported to Torquay once again! It was a 1940s and 1950s week and the staff were dressed in that era. The menu too had a "ration" style option. The food was amazing....

Thank you. A Brill review! We like create a friendly atmosphere within the hotel. We believe it enhances a guests overall opinion of their holiday. We have all been in the large branded hotels when sometimes you seem to be just another guest, a number. These hotels are fine, fit for purpose but they can sometimes seem formal and rigid....
