We stayed at The Osbourne in July 2015 having seen the hotel on previous visits to the area. The hotel is located in an historical regency crescent on a hillside above a small pebbly beach and coast road. The hotel is outside Torquay on the border of Babbacombe. The location is very nice and quiet, away from the main tourist... More

The hotel is the middle part of a crescent overlooking the sea. On sunny days you can have a drink and/or food sitting in the large tiered outside area looking out to sea, it is a lovely place to be. The rooms are comfortable, the decor good and the staff friendly and helpful. There is a great selection of food... More

Loved this hotel, probably more for the view than the rooms. The hotel is slightly dated but the views definitely make up for it! Cannot fault the hotel one bit. Staff were polite and helpful. We had room service for our breakfast in the morning which was lovely. We went into Torquay town centre for lunch and dinner which was... More

Spacious,comfortable rooms in the centre of a block of Victorian Villas. The rooms at the front of the hotel have wonderful views over Meadfoot Bay. While the rooms at the back of the hotel offer good value for money even though they look out over other buildings. We had the all in dinner bed and breakfast package for two of... More

Although we live quite nearby, we do enjoy staying at the Osbourne for the ambiente and the superb views alone. On a sunny day, there are very few places in Europe that offer better luncheon opportunities and views than the terrace of the Osbourne! Staff are friendly and helpful, and the food cannot be faulted, in our experience. One of... More

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
