Another lovely review. You made special reference to the convenient private pathway that takes you towards the seafront. You also enjoyed using the residents lounge- you were here for the Agatha Christie festival and the lounge is an ideal place to rest and read! Thank you for taking time to write this lovely review. All the best,. Peter Proprietor

We booked two last minute rooms for just one night to visit my brother who lives locally, to be honest we weren't expecting a lot at this price point ,so it was a lovely surprise to have two good quality, comfortable, clean rooms. The hotel was well kept and all the staff friendly and it's in a really good location...

We arrived at the howden court and were immediately greeted by the owners wife, she was very friendly and welcoming and explained the facilities of the hotel. Our room was lovely, very well decorated, cosy and comfortable. Our only complaint would be we were in a room overlooking the car park, which was not a problem until the security lights...

A great review, thank you. You commented on the nice breakfast and the room was cosy and comfortable. The one negative was that the black out curtains don't seem to be keeping out all the light - we will look at that problem, thank you. Overall you seem to have really enjoyed your stay. We do hope to see you...

We picked this hotel because it received so many excellent reviews from Trip Advisor. I can't believe we all stayed at the same hotel. This is an old and well worn hotel that could use a complete face lift. Let me start with our bathroom. The entire room should be gutted and upgraded. One of the glass holders on the...

Wow, from great reviews to a poor review. At least we are human and cannot satisfy everyone. Your stay was for one night on a Saturday. In response to your review I will respond to various comments. You state that this is a old & well worn hotel. I fully agree, it was built in 1860, almost 160 years ago...
