This is one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Torquay.. And I have been a few times! Can't fault our stay. Arrived and had drinks on the terrace, friendly staff and beautiful views/surroundings. We were shocked at the size of our room.. We ended up with more of a suite, it was lovely. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast...

Such a beautiful building with sea views and great scenery! The harbour just a few 100 yards away with a lovely little cafe on it, very calm sea lovely to swim in. The hotel walls are very thin though and can hear every little noise from other rooms.

We stayed at The Osbourne in July 2015 having seen the hotel on previous visits to the area. The hotel is located in an historical regency crescent on a hillside above a small pebbly beach and coast road. The hotel is outside Torquay on the border of Babbacombe. The location is very nice and quiet, away from the main tourist...

Thank you for your lovely review. I am pleased to read that you were well looked after by the team at the hotel and you are quite correct in saying that we have a quiet location. It is an ideal spot to relax and recharge. I will try and provide a bit of sun for your next visit. Sincerely

The hotel is the middle part of a crescent overlooking the sea. On sunny days you can have a drink and/or food sitting in the large tiered outside area looking out to sea, it is a lovely place to be. The rooms are comfortable, the decor good and the staff friendly and helpful. There is a great selection of food...

Although we live quite nearby, we do enjoy staying at the Osbourne for the ambiente and the superb views alone. On a sunny day, there are very few places in Europe that offer better luncheon opportunities and views than the terrace of the Osbourne!
