Grade ii listed Victorian property set in 3/4 acres of South Facing garden. Access to a private pathway 'Croft Meadow Walk' that takes you too within 100 metres of Torquay's main beach and promenade. Note, we are not Star Rated. We came out of the Star rating system many years ago. We believe a true reflection of what a hotel offers can be found via review sites such as TripAdvisor. Guests can leave their own personal viewpoints, be it good or bad and also identify other points of interest that can be found either inside the hotel, such as the humour and fun factor that we hope to provide for our guests and external factors such as a guests comments regarding areas of interest that they may have visited whilst on holiday. These points can be very helpful for other viewers looking for somewhere to stay.

Just been for a five day coach trip to this hotel. What can I say the staff at this hotel were absolutely fantastic at keeping us laughing. Colin, Peter and Gail were all brilliant. The hotel is decorated for Christmas to such a scale everywhere you look there are lights and decorations. Rooms clean and comfy and food is really good. Entertainment was good every night. Our only concern was Mary the ghost who kept rattling the door handle to our room. Colin and Peter you should be a double act at the theatre. Thank you Howden Court we will return.

Just returned from a Turkey and Tinsel holiday last week, it was an absolutely fabulous break, the xmas decorations in the hotel were outstanding, the room was very clean and comfortable, the food was excellent as was the entertainment at night. The staff could not have done more for us, a special mention for Becky who did an outstanding job keeping us all well informed and entertained, together with Colin. We had a really great time. We travelled with Roberts holidays and as usual the standard of hotel was above par. Thanks again, we will definitely come again.
