We stayed on a Friday night and were greeted with complimentary champagne. The room was to die for with all amenities catered for, the heater already on and jazz music playing. The pool was luxurious and the complimentary breakfast was above and beyond. The staff were friendly and helpful. Wonderful night stay

Arriving at Villa Howden for us is like entering a European castle somewhere in Lazio. At the castle entrance we were warmly greeted by Richard, his charming hospitality creating a sense of ease and comfort for us all. Richard provided outstanding service throughout the evening from re-opening the pool area for the children to swim before dinner, to offering a... More

Villa Howden is truly a boutique hotel and is very deserving of its 5 star rating. The villa itself is an imposing structure with influences mostly afforded in mediteranian regions. Its position encapsulates the beautiful Tasmanian waterfront, and the grounds truly reflect the villa's bold presence. Once inside, the Villa is sophisticated, warm and tastefully elegant, and exudes classic French... More

Amazing staff. The Villa Howden is perfect in every way. Lovely winter retreat, wood fire and sensational evening silver service dinner, top quality and reasonable price. A perfect eye fillet. A great Tassie gem thanks to the quality staff.

We visited Villa Howden for High Tea on a Sunday and it was absolutely beautiful! First of all the price is incredibly reasonable when you compare it to a few other high teas out there and what you receive. There was so much food just the perfect amount, no one left hungry and the deserts were really decadent. The service... More
