We stayed at The Osborne for 2 nights 26th - 28th March, which we purchased with a KGB deal. The location of the hotel is very pleasant, with lovely views of the sea from the front of the hotel. We stayed in the Ishlam (spelling of room maybe wrong) which is at the back of the - the decor was modern, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom was huge and the facilities were excellent. We ate at the hotel, in Langtrys on our first night - both having a starter and a main. My starter of the cod fishcake was slightly bland, however, my husband thoroughly enjoyed his starter of scallops. We both chose steak for our main meal - which was faultless. Breakfast on both mornings were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble. We would definitely recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay here again.

We booked into the Osbourne Hotel very excited to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary on the 17th sept 2012.Just wished we had not booked our anniversary meal there.We live in Teignmouth & are fortunate to have, ample excellent restaurants to choose from,how ever may be this was our down fall.The Osbourne Menu read fantastic,with great flavours & interesting dishes.We were so disappointed,what was served.The goats cheese starter had NO goats Cheese flavour, my husbands lobster was so over cooked & dry he could't eat it,as for the triple cooked chips they were terrible . We spent the evening sending half the food back,waiting for sauce that never arrived & feeling very upset our anniversary was so spoiled.My husband was convinced there was no Head Chef on duty that evening,as such poor standard of food would never be allowed to leave the kitchen.We paid for the meal as it was with the room booking,but the extra supplement was not included as a 'sorry'. for such bad food.But it was a special occasion & would of gladly paid twice the price to guarantee a great meal.We left our feed back form from our room to reception,letting them know how bad the food was,but never heard a reply.

Room Tip: ask to look round rooms to make your personal choice

Dear lizmb926 ,

Thank you for your recent review , I am glad to read you liked many aspects of the hotel its location, rooms and cleanness.

However i am sad to read your evening meal was not up to our usual standards , and i apologize for not making your 25 anniversary truly special .I am glad our reception team made a gesture of good will on your departure .

Perhaps you could contact me personally and discuss further on how we can restore your faith in the Osborne

Upon arival at the hotel we were able to get a parking space near the front of the hotel, although there is an overspill car park at the back of the hotel. Since it is a residential area the vechicles are likely to be safe. Our check in was very efficient and friendly, and our room was clean and warm. It was starting to look a little tired but certainly not tatty. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious, but did lack a shelf or unit to put anything such as a toiletry bag on. We were at the back of the hotel and this meant it was very quiet so great for peaceful sleep!
We stayed here during February and were fortunate that the weather was mild. Since the hotel is virtually on the sea front at Meadfoot we were able to have a pleasant stroll along the beach before it got dark. You can also walk further up to Marine Drive where there are great views back towards Torquay and some very fine residences! The walk is steep in parts.
Walking in the other direction you are very close to Daddyhole Plain with views towards Brixham, and you can walk along the coast path into Torquay. It can be a little muddy in places and there are some steps, it will take about half an hour to walk to the harbour.
Breakfast was efficient and there was a good variety of tasty food. We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening because we like The Linney Inn, but the hotel's menu looked OK and the prices reasonable.
I do think the hotel misses an opportunity with regard to the bar and lobby areas. Given that this is a grand old building, the exterior of which had just been painted, personally I found the areas mentioned to be very plain and bland, and they certainly didn't entice us to stay.
Overall we had a good experience at this hotel, and would recommend it.

Really great food in their spacious dining room, the staff were charming and efficient, with just the right level of care and attention. I had the special - lemon sole - probably the best I have ever eaten .... more fish on the menu please and then I could eat there ever night!
