Having stayed at the Grand and also the Imperial in Torquay it would be my choice to always go back to them rather than the Osborne. I booked this hotel as I enjoy having spas to use and this was the biggest disappointment of this hotel .....the first thing you notice downstairs is the awful smell when you enter the... More

Best place in Torquay with best restaurant and views. We stay at the Osborne every 18 months - we travel over from Australia. Would not stay anywhere else. The food in Langtrys Restaurant is gorgeous. Excellent sleeping conditions and quiet in the evenings in the room. There is a gym with full equipment and indoor and outdoor swimming pool. Our...

Couple of days staying at The Osborne for a wedding, nice hotel in a nice location. this is an older style hotel with plenty of character, ok a few things are a little worn/old but overall a nice place to stay. All the staff were really friendly & helpful and this made our stay very pleasant, Manager Jade very helpful.... More

We stayed for 1 night to visit some relatives in Torquay. Having stayed in several of the hotels in Torquay over the years the Osborne is one of the better. We had a sea view room which was lovely and quiet with fantastic views. The iron bedstead was a little creaky which matched the floorboards. The room was of a... More

We stayed for two nights on an Amazon special offer and could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the staff who went out of their way to help and accomodate us. The hotel was clean and tidy but in fairness could do with a bit of a spruce up. That said all the furniture was comfortable, but when I... More

Nice room with nice outside bar cafe and pool area. Indoor Lounge is okay if you like 1970,s theme bars and dinning room is like being in an retirement home. Really needs upgrading as a whole but perfect if you want to stay a long hard walk away from Blackpool sorry I mean Torquay. Staff nice and breakfast okay. If... More

My partner and I stayed between 1st and 5th June. On Arrival I was impressed with the exterior and the hotel looked right out to the sea which was lovely. We was able to check in 25 minutes early which I thought was great and was given a run down on the different restaurants and times etc. We was told... More

Hi there, We stayed a week in this hotel and had a family room on the third room with view on the Bay. I can't complain about the weather and the view which were fabulous. However I was disappointed with the standard of the room. Cleaners came everyday to do our room but the room was still left pretty dirty.... More

We must have had the smallest hotel room on the 3 rd floor. Although this was sold as a double this should only be a single occupancy as there wasn't even enough room to put the chair and coffee table in front of the window to appreciate the sea view we paid for.other rooms on that floor at at the...
