What a pleasant surprise Villa Howden was - it was recommended via word of mouth but the whole stay was just wonderful. 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.

We stayed at Villa Howden last night. The brief was relaxation and that is just what we got. The pool was lovely, the high tea nice (and I'm not a fan of high tea), dinner delicious, beds comfortable and service faultless. We will definitely be back again. The price for the experience was outstanding!

Beautiful surroundings with a lovely ambiance. The meal could not be faulted. Great entree scallops. Also tasted my partner's quail. For main course I had lamb which was succulent served with kumera mash. My partner had the steak, cooked to perfection. The dessert was to die for. It was delightful to sit at a table that all six of us... More
