The staff, most of which are family are all helpful and pleasant. The room was ok, all of them en-suite, the bed wasn't comfortable, but clean with ample towels. The whole of the hotel is need of a makeover, with a start already made at the reception and the painting of the façade. It was very busy when we were... More

Stoke-on-Trent Male Voice Choir party of 59 choir and supporters were 'on song' at the Osborne 9th-11th May 2014. We sang in Barnstaple with the Ladies Choir and all the staff(now friends) at the Osborne combined to make all our arrangements work without a hitch. Jude organised the dining room wonderfully well with dinner times to suit-bril. Yes some rooms... More

We have been coming to the Osborne Hotel for the past 8 years or more and always have an awesome time. Sandi, Nick, Neil, Yvette and the rest of the family and staff always make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, the food excellent too. Our party ranges from 10-20... More

Central location which could not be much better. Traditional British hotel, terrific friendly staff and owners. Enjoyable, spacious well stocked bar. Breakfast was excellent. Great value for money overall.

Extremely good value for money. The hotel was clean. The full english breakfast was very welcome. The staff were very friendly, jolly and very helpful. The location was ideal, especially if you want to visit the tunnels or the theatre but parking was a bit tricky. The hotel is a little tired on the interior but perfectly adequate.

Just back after another great weekend at the Osbourne. This time it was for father-in-law's birthday. Once again we couldn't have felt more welcome. Sue, Nick and Neil greeted us like old friends.
