Good Hotel Guide Review

Behind the stone portico and bay windows of this ‘atmospheric’ 19th-century seafront house, find a wealth of period detail and ornament – paintings, lamps, antique furniture, clocks, figurines. It is the little sister of the Empire Hotel round the corner; both are run by Elyse Waddy (née Maddocks, a scion of the Maddocks family, who have been here since 1946) and her husband, Michael. The ‘beautifully furnished’ suites have antiques, oriental rugs on bare floorboards, a comfy sitting room with a fireplace, and a marble bathroom. First-floor rooms overlook ‘the elegant sweep of the Victorian buildings and wide promenade’; those on the second floor take in ‘the bay and the cliffs in all their glory’. Head to the Empire to use the spa and saltwater swimming pool. The all-day bistro, with its fluted pillars and chandeliers, is ‘far more elegant than many hotel restaurants; you feel it’s a special occasion, eating here’. Typical dishes: crab, prawn and crayfish fishcakes; roasted lamb shank. Mornings, ask for a continental breakfast to be served in the suite, or stroll to the Empire for a full Welsh. (BW)

Guest comments

'The Osborne Suites take a lot of beating. Ours was beautifully furnished with antiques. It had wooden floors with rugs throughout, a sitting room with a large bay window overlooking the elegant promenade, real flame-effect gas fire and a lovely, large squishy sofa in front of a large, square coffee table. Table lamps everywhere. An archway led to the beautifully furnished, bedroom. There is a pantry area with fridge, china, cafetiere and kettle; also a clothes-hanging area. The well-appointed bathroom had separate loo, washbasin, roll-top bath and separate rain shower. The restaurant is all-day and referred to as bistro style, but it is far more elegant than many hotel restaurants I have been to. You really feel it is a special occasion eating here.

'An unusual, exciting place to stay. Our second-floor suite was gorgeous. The best hotel bedroom we have come across. Pictures everywhere, and interesting Victorian furniture. Large rugs on original wood floors. Bathroom with roll-top bath and marble floor. Lighting was excellent. The bar and restaurant are very theatrical. White pillars, gilt mirrors, candles. Stunning. The restaurant serves food all day and the joy is you don’t have to take a three- or four-course meal. Very good gastro-pub standards. Continental breakfast served in our suite at a window facing the sea. You can us the pool and spa of the sister hotel. ' - Barbara Watkinson - September, 2012
'We have stayed there on 20+ occasions. Real luxury ' - Jan Sheath - October, 2011
