Stayed here from weds to Sat, we ate in the restaurant one night and was not disappointed, really nice food, well presented and excellent value for money. The room we had was very clean, just been refurbished and a great view over looking the harbour, with a lovely Sunrise over the sea in the mornings. Would definitely go back again...

I had to travel down to Teignmouth for business, just around the corner, and choose the Osborne following a quick review of tripadvisor. However, I would say that the hotel isnt , in the view of my wife and I, who accompanied me, a 4 star. Whilst I appreciate there is some work being done in the main restaurant, I...

Not very impressed. Came here for coffee Sunday (13th November) late morning. Receptionist was dealing with others (not a problem) but she had the opportunity to acknowledge us but didn't. Ordered a coffee. Nice young man brought coffee out. My partner went in to order and pay for another from the same receptionist. Sat back outside with lovely sea view....

Let's be honest, we have a timeshare in the apartments and they are pleasant enough for what we pay. The view is to die for and the building itself is stunning, if lacking in any real investment. The restaurant looks nice menu looks very limited and the selections a little high-brow for our tastes (ox cheeks, Guinea Fowl, venison etc)....

We arrived at the hotel on Friday evening and we checked in. The rooms were exactly the same as on the website. They were clean and comfortable. The food was amazing and not over priced. The staff were fantastic and catered to our every need. I would recommend this as a great place to stay.

My friend has never been to Torquay so we walked down to Meadfoot and I took her to the Osborne. We were really lucky the sun came out and we were able to sit out and admire the glorious view. We had a cream tea each which came as one scone. When it came it was a nice warm scone...

Anthony G, General Manager at The Osborne Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Suenovell It was disappointing to read of your dissatisfaction with your Cream Tea. We pride ourselves in using the freshest ingredients, locally sourced as possible and cooked fresh onsite. I was surprised to read of your comment about being served a jam sachet, as this is certainly not something we would do. We do make our own chutney, brown...
