This is a small hotel, which is well positioned to enable visitors to explore the spectacular scenery of Argyll. Although we chose some great days out, we have further plans for excursions and activities when we return to the Osborne, as we certainly shall.
We were impressed by the welcome we received from the proprietors, Paul and Jacqui. The range and quality of the food was excellent. We understood there had been recent refurbishment and certainly we were impressed by the quality o the decor, in our room and in the hotel in general. We certainly enjoyed a few late nights at the Para Handy bar and here's to the next time!

What a great time we've just had staying at the Osborne. Friendly staff. Fabulous views over the water. Plenty of food and great choice. Top breakfast to set you up for the day. Parking outside and plenty of places to get to. Rooms clean and warm. Looking forward to coming back soon!

We have stayed at the Osbourne several times since the new owners took over. They have gone to great lengths to refurbish both the hotel itself and the menu. The new bar is a definite plus and the food is great. Good, honest, home cooked stuff. Just up my street. The views over the Clyde are amazing and the western Highlands are really close. If you want to explore this area of Scotland, you won't beat this place as a base in terms of comfort, value and hospitality.

I stayed here for two nights with a few mates in the summer. It was pretty standard fare. The food was good ( home cooking style. nothing fancy) and the staff were friendly. The rooms were a bit pokey but the views were excellent. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this as a cosy hotel.

  • Liked — the location and the bar
  • Disliked — the rooms weren't very modern
