“Irene & Stuart holiday 2014”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Enjoyed our weeks holiday in Torquay. We stayed in room 22 which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We could not fault the accommodation at all. Everyone was very helpful especially our waiter and waitress in the dining room. Entertainment was most nights , but the owner and Brian were a good double act themselves and kept the entertainment flowing. Would most certainly return to this hotel now that we have found a gem . Every one is made to feel welcome . The location is perfect as it is central and within walking distance to the town centre and other attractions .

Room Tip: Room 22 was overlooking the back garden and was very scenic. Both the double bed and single bed wer...

Myself and husband returned to Howden Court Hotel this weekend after 5 years. Last time we were there we got married and had our wedding reception there! We always feel very welcome and nothing is to much trouble. Peter and his staff have a very high standard when it comes to their hotel! The rooms are spotless and the hotel and gardens are lovely! This Hotel is a true gem and we are glad we found it! The food is always brilliant and there is allot of choice. Would recommend to anyone! Lovely hotel and great Family! Thank you Peter. See you again ;-) Sam & Andy Lowe

Room Tip: We stayed in the Admirals room on the two occasions we stayed! Lovely room!!

Jenny. Thank you for your great review. We enjoyed entertaining your group at Howden Court Hotel, you were loads of fun.
We aim to provide good standards throughout the hotel, with cleanliness, good food, good service as the norm but with the fun factor as an added extra. We do hope you return in the near future and enjoy one of our popular Turkey & Tinsel breaks.

All the best for now.

This year we organised a bowls tour to Torquay, although the bowls tour went well, with all the teams we played being friendly, the best thing was the hotel. The hotel arranged the transport with their own coach, we were pick up on time, their driver Kevin was excellent, the coach clean and comfortable. All 36 of us thought the rooms were excellent clean and again comfortable, the food was above the standard expected on these holidays as were all aspects of the hotel.
The owner Peter and his wife together with Brian kept us all entertained, all the staffs in the hotel were friendly and made you feel at home, the entertainment was good, the trip to the theatre on the Wednesday, to Babbacombe to see the variety show was brilliant and well recommended.
Hotel Howden Court is recommended, try it you want be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms were excellent but we stayed in the Admiral Room plenty of space with on suite.

I would like to thank the organizer of the bowls team, Norman for providing such a fantastic review. Firstly, as an organiser Norman provided all the information from his end so that we could produce a well organised service at the Hotel end. One important factor to any group booking is the organisation, other important factors are obviously things such as cleanliness, food, service & the atmosphere created during the stay. We seem to have hit all the right notes for your BOWLS GROUP HOLIDAY. We understand that you take your annual bowls tour to a different destination each year, however we would hope to see you return in the future.
Have a great summer season on the greens.
All the best.

Just come back from 5 days stay .Our Hosts , Peter and Brian, and all the staff were very friendly and made every effort to make us laugh and enjoy our stay. The hotel rooms were cleaned daily, meals very good and would recommend a stay here if you need cheering up. Well done Peter and Brian - you are both "Stars".

I have just returned from a week at Howden Court as part of a group. We were greeted warmly on arrival by Peter the owner. Accommodation was comfortable. Our meals were served on time, at times to suit our programme for the week, the food was good and the service likewise.
We were able to use the Hotel coach to get us to our various daily destinations, this was well driven and immaculate.
Peter and Gail the owners were available to answer and deal for any queries from us. Brian the manager injected much humour into the week.
Thank you all very much for contributing to an excellent week.

A great review from the Belles who came bell ringing! We really enjoyed having your group here and we were really impressed with your dedication to the task of visiting lots of churches and ringing bells in Devon, setting off early and returning after tea time - a long day and then after dinner some of the group would go out again to ring more bells. We reckon you all need another holiday!
Holidays are special events, people look forward to spending pleasure time away from their normal daily. We hope to have played our part in making your tour successful. Thank you so much for taking time to write your review. Have a great tour next year.
