We booked a sea facing room at the Osborne Hotel and enjoyed our experience. The room (on the 3rd floor) was large, clean and comfortable. We decided against a rear facing room and paid an extra £20 per night which was well worth it.
If booking, I would suggest you ring the hotel direct and check prices as these vary depending on occupancy. Ideally, a junior suite with balcony on the forst floor would be our preference.
Food wise. Breakfasts are included in the rate and offer the usual "English breakfast" with options of kippers or haddock for a little extra. We ate in the main restaurant one evening and the food was fine - and service very good. The Brasserie adjoining the hotel was disappointing - closed for cooking after 2:30 until 6pm and closed quite early. However, it was very pleasant supping your drink etc on the outdoor terrace weather permitting.
Overall, a good experience and better than other 4 start hotels we have tried in Torquay. We will definitely stay again. But beware, whilst the hotel looks large, it only has 32 rooms - the rest of the building seems to comprise of time-shares.
