We signed up for the Staycation summer break - 3 nights for the price of two. It was superb. It is in the middle of nowhere and well worth discovering! Lovely relaxed atmosphere and superb food. We had the Tasting Menu on arrival and the A La Carte on the other two. It was excellent; well up to top London...

We had been looking forward to Sunday lunch at Howard's Hotel, our welcome was pleasant and we enjoyed a pre-lunch drink with lovely views of the garden. The three course lunch choice on offer was reasonable but the actual presentation was lacklustre. The vegetables that accompanied our main meal were disappointing, our roast potatoes were overcooked and hard and overall...

First of all let me discuss the good points. The hotel is a beautiful stone building in delightful gardens with a large terrace where we enjoyed our pre-lunch drinks and caught up with old friends. The atmosphere is calm and unhurried and we had plenty of time in which to peruse the set Sunday lunch menu at £32.50 plus £4...

Stayed here for 2 nights Dinner Bed & Breakfast in mid August. The hotel is more a gentleman's residence with great style & character. The staff are welcoming and efficient. Food is excellent (especially the tasting menu). The hotel is located beside a small stream in beautiful Teffont Evias. It's a bit like Bourton-on-the-water..but without the people. If you like...

We love Howard's House so much that we took over the entire venue and held our wedding reception there. We stayed for two nights in mid July. The hotel itself is quiet, and beautiful. The little village surrounding it is charming - it's a really nice place to walk, and makes for lovely views from the hotel bedrooms. The service...

If you live in the city like we do spending a few days in this lovely friendly hotel is perfect! The quiet is noticeable, as is the beautiful location and fabulous food. A really lovely treat to stay here. The hotel is not large but they have thought of everything. Breakfast was one of the best we have had and...

We'd been exploring another local garden and it was too late for lunch but we were famished, so we asked if we could have a few sandwiches and cream tea - the staff could not have been more accommodating. Smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, scones that were as light as a feather, clotted and whipped cream with strawberry jam, all...

We were very fortunate that my Son and Daughter in law to be found this tiny village in the middle of countryside a few miles west of Salisbury and chose this Hotel for their reception.

If you are looking for an afternoon treat and/or escape to the country, do yourself a favour and go to Howard's House for their full afternoon tea. But be sure not to eat anything for several hours beforehand so you can do justice to the delicious tea! It starts with a seasonal appetiser, followed by a tower of sandwhiches, cream...
