Just had 6 days at this hotel. Food good, staff friendly. Not really suited to people who can't manage stairs. Says wheelchair friendly but saw people struggle a bit. There is a lift but only takes about 4 people at once. Entertainment is in bar area and is quite loud, having said that we had a room on 2nd floor...

Just returned from a 5 day break with 55 members and friends of Maidstone NHS Retirement Fellowship. We received a very warm welcome from this family owned hotel. The rooms were all spotlessly clean, the food very good and both the service and entertainment excellent. Very good value and would recommend this hotel to any group holiday organiser!

We have just returned from an Easter break at Osborne hotel and I can honestly say a good time was had by all. I do agree that the hotel is a little dated, but it is very clean with comfortable beds. The food is excellent, well presented and as near to home cooked as you can get. All the staff...

Thanks Jackie for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your Easter break here. We do have an excellent staff team who never fail to do us proud and its always great when our guests recognise and praise their hard work. Yes Nick is 'one of a kind' isn't he? his programme of entertainment is a credit to him as well...

Just spent two days in Ilfracombe stopping in the Osborne Hotel, a lovely family run hotel and so friendly. It's the third time there and each time we have loved the atmosphere and will go back again. Great food and evening entertainment in the bar. Over the road is the Gurkha Restaurant which is a must.
