The Osborne has been totally renovated by relatively new owners so some early adverse comments are no longer valid. Superb views across the Clyde estuary to Wemyss Bay. Rooms were tastefully decorated, furnished and well appointed. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. All COVID precautions were being undertaken. The restaurant was welcoming with outstanding views and with tables well separated by screens so seemed safe. Food was delicious and well presented. Owners and staff were extremely pleasant. The Bar was particularly pleasant both as to ambiance and the two real ales available which I just had to sample! I look forward to future visits.

Stayed here for a couple of days as a post lockdown staycation while exploring the area. Found the owners and staff to be friendly and accommodating. The decor is tasteful and our room was spacious and clean. The food is first class with a real range of dishes to suit everyone with generous portion sizes. We ended up asking for smaller portions as we couldn’t do the standard size justice. We would recommend this place and happily stay here again.

This place is a gem. Beautifully and sympathetically refurbished, the hosts Peter, Elliott & staff offer superb and welcoming service. The food is top notch, the best of ingredients cooked to perfection. I'm looking forward to going back there soon.

We decided to visit the Osborne for Saturday lunch and we were not dissspointed. We were given a really warm welcome and shown to our table by the window by the really friendly waitress. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and my husband said it was one of the best curries he's ever had. The tables are socially distanced with screens inbetween and sanitizer provided,and all staff wearing masks. Give yourself a wee treat and visit the Osborne you won't be disappointed.

We are frequent visitors to the Cowal Peninsula, and are always looking for restaurants serving good food. The Osborne is definitely one of our favourites (we have not stayed in the hotel, but eat there when we can; our most recent visit being in October 2020). The service and generally friendly demeanour of the owners and staff are always positive; you are always made welcome. The food is wholesome, tasty and enjoyable. Favourites include the steaks, often with an excellent peppercorn sauce, and battered langoustines (which are absolutely delicious!). Deserts are also good. Prices for food, including drinks, are reasonable and compare well with other outlets in the area. The ambience is set by the friendly, welcoming staff and the views across the Clyde from the conservatory dining room. Prior to the coronavirus restrictions the hotel provided numerous binoculars with which to watch seals, porpoises, sea birds and, of course, ships. Hopefully they will reinstate the binoculars once life returns to 'normal'. In good weather it is also possible to sit outside, taking in the fresh, sea air. If there's one criticism in respect of the ambience it is that some of the paintings on display are often of questionable merit and do little to enhance the overall atmosphere. What might be more appropriate if original and quality artwork is unavailable would be copies of historic photographs of the Clyde and surrounding area. Completely filling the wall spaces with tastefully framed photographic prints would add interest and a sense of history relative to the location. Considering the Clyde's rich heritage in terms of shipbuilding, yachting and engineering, etc, such a permanent exhibition could become a major attraction. It would certainly add interest. The Osborne is unpretentious; it is not trying to be something it isn't. This is to their credit, and why we give it five stars. We will return!
