We had looked at the Osborne here on TA and having seen some of the very negative reviews were a little dubious about coming here, however there were plenty of great reviews so decided to give it a go. We had booked room with pool view and on arrival were given a room overlooking the neighbouring family's garden. We went to the reception the next day and were shortly moved to a great room.
If you want a palatial hotel with high end décor, you will be disappointed. It does, after all, feature in the adverts as a 2 star so don't expect higher. The Osborne is clean, very clean. There is no room service, however the staff were friendly and we found couldn't do enough for you. Got to give a special mention to Francis who managed the bar and waiting staff (loved the fried ice cream), Sarah on reception, and especially to Ash who was a star. There was entertainment on some nights for example Rahjastani music and dancers and in Stage 3 on Wednesday? night there is a race/bingo night but with a fantastic buffet. There are many who like their bit of England while abroad and those who don't. You do not have to go, however the buffet is worth it. The breakfast is simple, however you can order a breakfast off the menu and this is very reasonable, better than some of the restaurants outside the hotel.
Step outside the hotel and there is Zicos on side and St Anthonys Tea Garden over the road on the other side, both of these are excellent for meals from breakfast through to dinner.
The hotel is ideally located, close to the beach and to Calangute town centre. We went to the beach from Baga to Candolim so it was handy to get to all (we got to Baga for 100 rupees in a tuc tuc).
Most of the other guests we spoke to there had been to the Osborne many times and loved it. We loved it and have booked again.

Me and my friends stayed here awhile ago now- but I promised myself I would write this review so hopefully this does not happen to anybody else.
We booked here over New Years- arrived late at night to find there was no space for us, even though we had booked this hotel months before hand. Probably the worst thing about the whole situation was the man at reception who was incredibly rude and did not care-guessing because they were nicely full over New Years.
He then said we had been booked into another hotel his friend owns (scam)! We really had no choice but to get in taxi to go to this other hotel, everywhere over New Years is full. We got there and it was disgusting- and me and my friends are not fussy travelers, but for the price we had paid it really was appalling. Cigarette burns on the bedding, dirty, small etc. When we said there was no way we were staying here the 'friend' started to get very hostile and started calling other men from around the property, who all started arguing with us. We left and called everyplace in the Lonely Planet- luckily found somewhere great that had a last minute cancellation.
We then called the hotel booking site we had booked Osborne Hotel through- they gave us a full refund and took the hotel off their site.

Stayed in Phase 2 in Feb 13. The room was basic, bed extremely uncomfortable but another mattress was given when asked. The waiting on staff appeared to me to be very lazy. Not once during our stay did they come to you, especially when lying by the Pool.
Be extremely carefull when leaving the complex as as soon as you do, the traffic on Candolim Rd is hazardous. Also when walking down to beach rd to the beach my friend and I were exposed to by a young male, scarey. Another guest had her handbag stolen on the same rd by males on motor-bikes whilst waiting for a taxi. I would not return to Calangute or the Osborne. We initially booked the hotel for 4wks but left for south Goa after 2wks. I have been a regular visitor to Goa for 8yrs.

Room Tip: Phase 3 according to other guests was of a better standard.

This was our second consecutive stay at the Osborne. Our first visit last easter was a bit of a culture shock but we were compelled to return this easter (2013) Only regular visitors can explain why. Goa is unhygenic, dirty, basic and too hot but you can't get enough of it. Don't stay at the Osborne for quality of rooms, they are in dire need of update. The pool is ok and the 3 free buffets per week are adequate. Stay at the Osborne for the location, it's situated in between Candolim and Calangute perfect, and only a Rs150 taxi to Baga beach our favourite. Stay at he Osborne for the smiley, happy hard working staff who make the place a totally geniune and welcoming resort. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. But what really makes the place are the waiting staff, special mention must go to Francis and his team, Sandi, Martin, Bippin and Hilary, nothing is too much trouble for them. After an relaxing day at Aggies Shack (Calangute) or Captain's cabin (Baga) or after an exhausting trip (Dudshagar waterfalls), a visit to Panjim or Old Goa a smile always welcomes you back to the Hotel. Try Soumyens Kitchen (Michelin star food at Greasy Joe prices) Souza Lobo, Over the Flames or the Redonda all come highly recommended. Decades on a Monday night is a must for a superb meal and entertainment. By the way we went on the Golden Triangle trip. If you are thinking about it pre book everything before you get there you'll save a lot of money. There are a number of flights from Goa to Delhi. (GoAir, SpiceJet or IndiGo) I recommend www.Ziptrips.in to book the Delhi-Agra-Jaipur trip they were awesome. Can't wait to book for next year.
