Two Night Romantic Break at The Howbeck
A Wonderful Experience
Stayed in the Greenburn Suite which was beautifully decorated with fairy lights and rose petals. The staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent. Will definately be making a return visit.

not value for money
Stayed here in a suite, found the room to be pleasant enough on first impression. Champagne on ice, lights round bedhead and silk rose petals on the bed. Seems a good idea till you really think about it. Had to gather petals up first to get in bed, would have like a stopper for the champagne as we didn't want to drink it all on one night. Had to scramble about under sofa to find switch to turn off lights.
Breakfast is ordered the night before, which is a good idea. However, the scrambled eggs I ordered were not freshly cooked, rather grey and rubbery. Ordered beans on toast next day, not much to go wrong with you think. Ordered brown toast, came white with only one side toasted so all a bit soggy.
Needs a bit more attention to detail for the price.
