The food is excellent, well presented and as near to home cooked as you can get. All the staff... More

Just spent two days in Ilfracombe stopping in the Osborne Hotel, a lovely family run hotel and so friendly. It's the third time there and each time we have loved the atmosphere and will go back again. Great food and evening entertainment in the bar. Over the road is the Gurkha Restaurant which is a must.

The staff were very friendly and made you feel extremely welcome, the great receptionist even printed out directions home for us. Thank you to all the wonderful... More

Extremely well organised team considering the amount of people there. The meals were served promptly and had been freshly cooked and were served hot and with a smile. The evening entertainment was brilliant. The rooms were... More
