The Howard is a study in understated elegance and luxury. The hotel occupies three beautiful Georgian town houses situated close to the center of town. The accommodation comprises of eighteen luxury rooms and suites, each uniquely decorated with a sumptuous collection of rich fabrics, oil paintings and ornate furniture. Well-appointed bathrooms are stocked with luxurious Penhaligon products, and the hotel operates a full butler service to really spoil guests. Rather than a tired tray of unappetizing instant coffee and teas and an uninspiring mini bar, guests simply need summon their butler who will provide hot and cold beverages and delicacies of the highest quality. The restaurant is intimate and exclusive but guests can also choose to be waited on in their own suite for a wonderfully romantic three course repast. There is also a delightfully cozy drawing room where guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks or a nightcap.
