Beware the beautiful photos and promised amenities posted on the Villa Howden site. The villa in reality is understaffed, under furnished and overall, underwhelming. Upon request our room was changed - who needs a bathroom with a plastic shower curtain, no place for the poor quality 'cosmetics' and no power point? A disappointing experience.

This property is amazing. The accommodation is fantastic, and the staff are just so friendly and helpful. Everything from the spacious, classy rooms, to the mezzanine library, wonderful lounge area, spectacular pool, fantastic dining area and WONDERFUL breakfasts is just incredible. Nothing is too much to ask from the staff, and the atmosphere is so relaxing and accommodating. 11 out of 10!!!!!!!

Gorgeous luxury boutique hotel. Staff were extremely attentive. Gorgeous common areas with fireplace to enjoy with a glass of wine in the evening. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Great stay, friendly staff, the accommodation is lovely. I would fully recommend a stay at Villa Howden. The only downside is the restaurant not being open and the availability of the breakfast selection.

Nice getaway for a night
Our stay at Villa Howden was very nice. Staff were really lovely and the food was great although very expensive. Only downfall was there were a few expired items in our mini bar and what possibly looked like mould behind the door of the toilet. Would be a nice location for an event.
