The first impression of this Hotel, was the incredible view and friendly greeting from the staff in reception. We had a double room overlooking the sea which was spacious with separate sofa and chairs. The room was clean,a little dated and the bed was not the most comfortable, but otherwise ideal.The terrace seating area was a real asset as it... More

We had a four poster room with a sea view and it was clean spacious and serviced daily. There was no DVD player when we arrived so we mentioned... More

We went there lately for our anniversary. We stayed at Hasketh room, first floor suite with balcony and it was amazing, probably one of the best rooms. It was modern,very spacious and cosy. The bar terrace was great to enjoy a drink during the evening. There are two things that i cant give 5 stars. Its weird to not have... More

The staff and service were excellent nothing was too much trouble. Excellent choice of breakfast and with both an indoor and outdoor pool plus a tennis court there was... More

Second leg of our holiday, What a perfect place to stay. The view from the room was lovely. and floor a little uneven, but hey its an old building. We used the indoor pool and the gym, found both to be well equipped, even if some of the equipment was a little old. Food was good, Staff were extremely helpful,... More

The Osborne is billed as one of Torquay's finest hotels, with a price tag to match, but if that's true then I am worried about the rest. The good points first of all: the location is fabulous, the staff are very good, and the food in the restaurant is excellent. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. If you are paying top... More

Stayed here overnight on a business trip, couldn't praise the hotel enough. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, whether it be in the bar or the housekeeping team. Bedrooms were nicely furnished and very comfortable, we always ask for sea-view if possible, and were not disappointed. Bathroom was clean and well provided with plenty of towels... More

The Osborne Hotel is certainly one of the better hotels in Torquay, but still our experience was rather disappointing. We had three Junior Suites with Sea View which were all three really spacious and clean but a bit "run down" and in one room the uneven floor was rather extreme. The bathrooms were clean too, however the water pressure was... More
