I was in two minds about leaving a review, as every unique and special place i have found in the past and told others. It then became impossible to book a stay, where the stay becomes very popular. After traveling Australia for the past 35 years, my wife and i have stayed in some truly unique places, and some not... More

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

This boutique hotel is a beautiful example of taste and quality. With a French farmhouse feel it has been beautifully decorated. It has 2 lovely sitting/loungerooms that you can relax in, one with an open fire and the other with a library feel. The rooms have views either over the garden or the river and are a great size.

I have planned to visit Villa Howden for quite some time but life has always got in the way so with a little availability we headed for breakfast.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, even with a busy almost 4 year old keen to check everything out. The sunken lounge area in front of a fireplace in the main building was awesome and the games... More

Today I enjoyed a lovely outing here with family celebrating my niece's 30th birthday in great company at this superb venue with a breathtaking outlook. Sadly I was let down by the standard of service and the underwhelming and overpriced high tea. $47 for a basic selection.
