I stayed here before Christmas with my boyfriend and we were completely blown away by this place. About a five minute drive out of town, the location felt was amazing. It was so peaceful there and the views were incredible. I would love to stay in the summer after seeing how beautiful it is in winter. The room was bliss... More

The Osborne hotel made our stay in Torquay even more memorable. Easy to find in quiet residential area. Fantastic setting and the views are perfect of the bay. The hotel is situated in a Georgian Crescent and its like staying in the Royal Crescent Bath with tranquil sea views. Well maintained and the style is in character. Nice decor and... More

Nice treat for my birthday in December. Would be happy to stay again in the summer time. Good meals. Nice touch on arrival with bags being carried to room. Hotel situated between Torquay and Babicombe.

Our 4th or 5th stay here. With family this time just after ther New Year festivities. Never disappoints. Always a welcoming place to stay in Torquay, which is one reason why we always return here. Food, service, accommodation all very good. On a good day the views are lovely too. A wondefully relaxing place to stay. Highy recommended. Thanks OH.

On arrival we were very impressed of the surroundings and the elegant building, check in was effortless and bedroom was faultless, good sized room with ensuite. Location was quiet set away from the centre of Torquay but only a 15 minute walk. Health club was fun, pool sauna and gym, overall a great hotel and would recommend.

We stayed here as a young family travelling with my parents from 8-10 January on a Wowcher deal (which obviously means we don't have a grasp of the normal pricing for this hotel). After reading reviews I was expecting a scruffy hotel, to be honest. Nothing could be further from the truth. The (inland facing, newly refurbed) rooms our two... More

We stayed in a friends timeshare. The apartment's are very spacious with everything you could want. The views over the bay are fantastic. A ten minute walk into the town centre. Lovely place to stay. There is a swimming pool, tennis courts set in nice grounds.

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Osborne. What a fantastic looking building from the outside, unfortunately that does not transfer to inside. The hotel is particularly tired, and in fact shabby in a lot of the common areas with wallpaper peeling off. This hotel is listed as four star and I guess that's due to... More

Thank you for posting your review on the hotel. It was disappointing to read that you were not entirely happy with your stay, but your points have been taken on board and actually reflect the future plans for the hotel. The corridors have been earmarked for a refurbishment program to rejuvenate and brighten them and this started on the gym... More

It saddens me to not be able to write a glowing review for this hotel, particularly as it holds fond memories for me, but this visit was just not up to scratch. We arrived early, aware that we couldn't check in but could use the facilities. The welcome at reception was luke warm. I asked if there was somewhere we... More
