I give this hotel an average rating only because of the lovely staff and entertainment. Most of the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant although I did notice a bit of friction in the dining room one breakfast time. The food at breakfast was good and the drinks were fine and the entertainment was hilarious - full marks to the... More

We stayed The Osborne Hotel on Saturday evening, and although the hotel is in an old building, it was very clean and the food was excellent value served by first class dining room staff and the receptionist and Betty, our housemaid were a pleasure to meet and talk to, nothing was too much trouble for them.

Hotel reception staff welcoming & friendly. Room was clean and good size. However, windows in room could not open, en-suite shower was very poor.. Breakfast was just ok certainly not quality produce. Good central location. Fine for basic short stay.

The room we were given overlooked a fire escape which was an eyesore. The toilet was constructed in four different colours, dark blue, light blue, black and white. There were cigarette burns in the "lino" and the... More

After just returning from a Diamond Coach holiday staying at the Osborne Hotel I was most unimpressed with not only the hotel but the meals and the management. Firstly the hotel was more shabby than chic and if like me you are a vegetarian than expect nothing more than a bake potato and cheese for your evening meal which to... More
