We have just returned from an Easter break at Osborne hotel and I can honestly say a good time was had by all. I do agree that the hotel is a little dated, but it is very clean with comfortable beds. 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.
