Just returned this lunchtime from a 3-night stay on DB&B. We've been visiting the Osborne for about 13 years now - usually make a once-a-year visit.
We had a Beautiful room, very spacious - we don't pay for a seaview, simply because we found the sound of the sea too noisy many years ago! And how many of us spend the day looking out to sea?
It's fairly quiet at the mo, but the level of service from all the staff was excellent and with long-standing food&beverage manager, Lionel, still there the staff are certainly polite and attentive. Food in Langtry's is 'fine dining', so if that's not your taste, then eat in the Brassiere instead, which is also good quality. The choice of menu each night was superb and varied - food was excellent. We made our usual visits to Dartmouth and to Torcross and Blackpool Sands. A real chill out weekend with top notch food.
Only gripe is the price of the drinks in the Brassiere - why hotels keep charging v high prices is beyond me? you just drive people to drinking in their rooms with value drink from supermarkets or going to other pubs - charge pub prices and people will purchase more drinks in the hotel's bars. It's simple economics in my eyes. Also found out that members of the health club (in the hotel) and timeshare patrons enjoy a 10% discount off drinks in the Brassiere - slightly sour taste there.
But we'll still be back next year.
