I am by no means a stranger to Torquay, attending many conferences over the years at the usual and mundane establishments that pass themselves off as quality venues, a recent stay at one of the aforesaid Hotels which will remain anonymous prompted this review, a colleague and myself duly arrived for the seminar, only to find the room had been double, booked annoying though it was, we had assurance all was well, and had been shipped out to a comparable four star Hotel in the bay, i use the word shipped out because to be frank that is usually the case, bed and breakfast, or some last chance saloon with creaky floorboards and cobwebs. Not this time, at the end of a road i never knew existed, tucked in almost miss able we found the Osborne Hotel, set in well kept grounds with breathtaking views across the bay. we were speechless !! friendly accommodating staff, Comfortable well kept rooms, quality food, (we had room service from the evening menu) very good, hot and delicious, but found it strange all three courses delivered at the same time ? if your a breakfast lover you wont find better, gastronomic full grill i had never seen the like of before, definitely prefer comfort to conference, special thanks to Andy for sorting out the parking nightmare
