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. The...

The food was outstanding and the staff excellent. It is a wonderful venue. It is about 15 minutes drive from Hobart and has a large parking area. Great place for meetings and...

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 setting is just amazing and made me remember a visit we had to Portmeirion in North Wales many years ago it being the setting for the 1960's tv series "The Prisoner...

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...

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...
