Thank you for your review. For the benefit of others reading your review, I feel it only right to explain why the said areas of the hotel were closed to the public.

A family run hotel dedicated to making your stay memorable. Stayed four nights, hence we enjoyed four faultless breakfasts and dinners, all served by our waitress. "Lovely lass". (Kirsty?) The singer/guitarist who entertained us on Monday & Wednesday evening was second to none. One of the family, Nick, rounded off our stay with a good laugh on Thursday evening. Cannot...

Rooms very clean with refreshments included. Staff beyond helpful, they helped arrange a surprise stay for the family and arranged a Birthday cake.

What a delightful one-night stay we had at The Osborne Hotel. When we drove up to the front entrance we noticed a cheerful group of wedding guests laughing and having a grand time relaxing on the front terrace.

we were let down for 30+ people and turned to the Osborne to see whether they could help. No problem 2 nights with dinner on the first night. It cost less than we thought and all the people were happy in the hotel.
