Stayed here with family. Beds were very comfortable and the morning breakfast was tasty. Especially impressed with the enthusiasm of the staff who were very friendly and helped us with our bags. Only issue I had was with the WiFi which we couldn't receive in our room, but this was fairly minor in comparison to the rest of our stay....

Thank you for taking time to write a review on your stay here at the hotel. It's great to see you had a good time. Unfortunately Wifi in the hotel is difficult to pick up in certain areas of the hotel due to the age of the building and the thickness of the walls. We have tried several suggested methods...

our room(No.22) was very unclean with thick layers of dust on the surfaces and the bathroom was unacceptable, hot water came out of the cold water tap and the shower was in need of urgent plumbing. Everywhere around the hotel needed refurbishing and the food was very plain. The furniture was also very out dated.

Thank you for your review, unfortunately we're not able to say the same to its content! We were only made aware of your concerns regarding the room on the Monday by the coach company you came here with (you arrived on the Saturday). They had received an email from you which they responded to on the Monday morning. We would...

We went for a wedding in Ilfracombe and stayed at the Osborne, food was wonderful, staff very friendly ,room was clean and plenty of towels.The hotel could do with some TLC but the frienship of the people made up for it.The room we had was facing the back but my daughter was in a seaview room and that was larger.

We have just had our wedding in the Osborne hotel and I have never met a bunch of nicer, family orientated, kind people.

The welcome, service and food could not be faulted. Though our room was not one that had been refurbished, it was spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable. However, the public areas do need some TLC and, with the lift only going to the 3rd floor, access beyond here is only by the stairs which total around 20 to the...
