    We have had a superb holiday at the Osborne Hotel. The food has been first class, absolutely delicious, served in a beautiful Restaurant. The Staff have been most attentive and courtious and the Suite we had was lovely with a Balcony to enjoy the view. Location was superb,we could not fault the Hotel in any way,and the leisure facilities were excellent. We certainly hope to stay there again next year. We did upgrade to a suite !

    Main thought a degree of sadness that this represented a so called 4 star hotel in one of our premier resorts. It really does need a complete refurbishment. It reminded us a little of Fawlty Towers not because of any stupid behaviour but more that it thought itself good but really it is locked in the 1950's when the Brit put up with anything.The meal we had was good, breakfast choice poor. Internet (free) good but absence of any Sky channels in 2011 not good enough. Parking hopeless and not enough staff generally.

    Perfect

    The hotel is absolutely beautiful set in beautiful grounds and in close proximity to the beach and not too far from town (£4.00 taxi ride). The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was really nice, although we were at the back and there wasn't a view, that didn't spoil our stay. Overall the experience was fantastic and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Beautiful location and wonderful dining room. It is rare these days to stay at a hotel and have a breakfast cooked to order - excellent!

    Reception was sparce

    Perfect

    Very comfortable room, adequate space, particularly in the bathroom which also contained plenty of shelf space. Extremely good cuisine served in a lovely restaurant.The changing room for swimming pool could do with a little more floor space. The position of hotel provides a a very good sea view, beyond the gardens.Plenty of parking space at the moment which may be a little stretched during height of the summer season.

    Great

    The location at Meadfoot Beach is lovely. The hotel is historic. Charles Darwin and Agatha Christie stayed there. The rooms have been updated and we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of the food in the restaurant.

    This is minor but the colors in he room were a little dark.
