Hi there, We stayed a week in this hotel and had a family room on the third room with view on the Bay. I can't complain about the weather and the view which were fabulous. However I was disappointed with the standard of the room. Cleaners came everyday to do our room but the room was still left pretty dirty....

We must have had the smallest hotel room on the 3 rd floor. Although this was sold as a double this should only be a single occupancy as there wasn't even enough room to put the chair and coffee table in front of the window to appreciate the sea view we paid for.other rooms on that floor at at the...

What a great way to spend 2 days near the sea. Wanting to take my partner away for her birthday, I was recommended the Osborne Hotel. The room we had was spacious, clean and had great views of the sea (it did help that the sun was out). My partner & I had our dinner at Langtrys. There were certainly...

As locations go, it doesn't get any better than this. Set in a gorgeous Georgian crescent overlooking a magical bay, this really takes some beating in the UK. Admittedly the hotel rooms are a little tired and dated, but this property was built in the 1900s,so it is forgivable. All staff were very helpful and polite and breakfast was good....

We stayed here last Summer and were blown away by the location, we were very lucky and had 6 sunny days (which helps a lot!) and spent a lot of time at the pool and on the beach, when the sun is out and sitting around the pool overlooking the grounds and sea you would never think you were in...

It is a strange mix of a hotel, they are nice rooms, (although mines was cold to start - -but there are extra heaters) Breakfast is excellent. Staff are very good. Fantastic views from the front of the hotel, I can't make my mind up about the restaurant, it is very hit and miss for the price I keep expecting...

My wife and I experienced a long 4 day / 3 night weekend, of Dinner , Bed and Breakfast, and what good value for money.

Outside of hotel stunning, just like the Crescent Bath, with fabulous views out to sea. Only stayed B&B but the breakfast was outstanding. Staff very helpful and friendly.

We were meeting the family of 20 and staying 2 and 3 nights. Nice hotel, good staff, excellent food. Our room was large as was the bathroom, just a few blips, the shades on the bedside table were so dark we could not see to read. The shower did not have anywhere to put your towel.
