This hotel sandwiched amid private properties has a very good dining breakfast room. Views over the Sea that is nearby. The reception desk become a little cramped when busy occasionally. The room we were allocated was clean, located at the rear and spacious. The upstairs door way and corridors seem a little tired in places. The food at breakfast was...

Hotel was average but nothing to write home about... Pretty tatty in places!! However was somewhat surprised at staff and managements attitude to issue we had. We paid full price for a rare night away and at the very least we're looking forward to a good nights sleep and lie in with no kids in tow. Unfortunately we were woken...

An imposing crescent shaped building above Meadfoot beach and with extensive views over Torbay. Part of the building is now apartments, both residential and holiday let. We checked in for our lunch, left our coats with a charming receptionist and were shown to our table for two. Champagne arrived to the table. My wife isn't a great fan of champagne...

My room had a view of the roof. I asked to upgrade to a sea view room on arrival but was told there were none available. On the first night I had ordered the Plaice; it was not very nice and tasted watery. I did complain to the waiter at the time that I was not very happy with the...

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....
