My mother has been resident in Howlish Hall since June 2019 to date. During that time she has been so well cared for. She is treated with dignity and respect. She is always clean and nicely dressed. The carers are excellent. They have gone above and beyond with looking after the residents during the pandemic. If there is a problem it is dealt with quickly and the family are always kept up to date by management. The staff are always cheerful and make you welcome. A lovely home. Would recommend it to others. Well done Howlish Hall staff.

I would tell anyone about this home as they are very helpful. Nothing is a problem and all was on the go with residents. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it's always clean and tidy. They can not do enough for the residents of the care they give is above eight. Beyond what other care homes do I am grateful for what they do for my mam.
