The pictures will tell a different story.. beware. This is an extremely poor run hotel. The only plus points were the views and bedrooms. People were queuing up to complain as well as ourselves. On returning home I wrote many emails of complaint with no reply what so ever. Quality of food at breakfast .poor. Service... poor. Non of the staff were trained in waitressing, just handing us a bunch of cutlery as did not know where to put it! . We had to eat outside due to COVID restrictions when we arrived, which we completely understand. However plastic knifes and forks which were of such poor quality broke when using. Waiters shouting to come and get your food orders. We were a family of four visiting for a celebration, so completely disappointed. . I can honestly say this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in plus on leaving our car had been damaged. We visited for Sunday lunch the meadfoot bay hotel opposite.. absolutely stunning .. wish we had stayed there.

Stayed at the hotel in December 2020 glorious room overlooking the bay excellent staff could not fault the preparations that had been made due to the pandemic. Excellent breakfast and dinner during our 5 day stay will definitely return when life gets back to some normality .

My friend and I initially booked a standard twin room. Check-in was smooth and COVID measures in place in all areas. The room was a little underwhelming: clean and spacious but a little plain with a nondescript view at the back of the building. We therefore paid a little extra and upgraded to a first floor sea view room...WOW. Enormous bed, enormous corner bath and a glass panel in the bathroom wall means you can look out through the floor-to-ceiling window in the bedroom at the beautiful sea view. This junior suite looked newly decorated and the thick walls meant no disturbances. We stayed in the Coutts room. Didn't dine within the hotel so can't comment on the food. The location is fab: just a short walk from the sea. Town is driving distance, but not far at all. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

For somewhere to crash - lovely. For a special occasion - don’t bother. We had high expectations of the Osborne given its beautiful location & 4 star rating. We were excited to spend our anniversary somewhere we could treat ourselves. Unfortunately the Osborne hotel didn’t deliver. Room only thing nice about it was the seaview (paid premium rate for - as you would expect) and that it was very clean. Other than that It had a really Basic premier inn feel to it. No information or welcome pack, no temperature control (and it was extremely hot at night), no mini bar, no spare towels or pillows. Basic small tv, only lighting options were full lights or bedside tables. No mood lighting or a lamp for the dresser . Facilities - No room service due to COVID which is understandable, although nothing to notify us of this in room. - WiFi super slow - swimming pool needs repairs and cleaning. Massive hair ball the size of a basket ball floating by our feet. Clinical feel, no natural light. - No towels for guests so we had to use our shower towels from the room meaning they were wet for our shower later on. - Gym used by public, more everyday functional feel than luxurious hotel vibe, again no natural light. - One small restaurant & bar area inside. Decor is confused and place feels like an airport restaurant. - Food was very good although we were sent the wrong main meal. By the time I’d finished my partner still hadn’t received his main. They did apologise for this and knocked 10% plus a drink off our bill but still, for an anniversary dinner this just added to our disappointment. Overall for the luxurious anniversary trip we had hoped (and paid) for, we were disappointed and will not be going back.

Great location overlooking the bay. Covid safe Hotel staff are great and make you feel very welcome. Breakfast was superb. The is a nice outdoor seating area where you can bring your drinks from the bar. Tennis court and swimming pool as well but we did not use them but look OK.
