The Osborne Hotel is certainly one of the better hotels in Torquay, but still our experience was rather disappointing. We had three Junior Suites with Sea View which were all three really spacious and clean but a bit "run down" and in one room the uneven floor was rather extreme. The bathrooms were clean too, however the water pressure was very low in two of our rooms. The really disappointing bit of the hotel was not the rooms but the state of the corridors and stairs (really in need of refurbishing!) and above all the unfriendliness and lack of motivation of the staff. I was rather shocked by constantly being given the impression of being a burden to everyone (I am always very polite, so it can hardly be my fault). Breakfast was very disappointing too (it cannot be so difficult to make a decent scrambled eggs and buy acceptable fruit juice!). Probably I would accept all the negative points mentioned if the hotel were half the price - but like this it's ridiculously overpriced. The positive aspects are the location of the hotel (if you have sea view rooms), a relatively reliable wifi and the beach which is only 2mins from the hotel. There is also a gym, and indoor and an outdoor pool, but we haven't used these facilities.
