We had 3 nights at The Osborne hotel last week. It went from good, to great, to excellent! Really is a lovely place with traditional evening entertainment. We loved it, and we'll definitely be back. Nick and his team are superb in keeping their guests happy!☺️☺️ Nick & Tina

Very clean, comfortable, spacious and friendly. The family and staff who run the hotel are charming and helpful in a genuine way. Evening entertainment is good and the bar is well stocked. Breakfast is good, but only served from 8.30-9.00am on our visit, although a request to the staff for an alternative time can be made.
