Good Hotel Guide Review

Blond sofas, fluted pillars, chandeliers, paintings, oriental rugs, gilded mirrors… Opulence abounds in this bay-fronted Victorian former gentleman’s residence on the prom. Owned by the Maddocks and Waddy families, it displays the high style of the 1850s, when the resort first boomed. The ‘rooms’ are suites, no less, with a separate sitting room, lavishly appointed and so reasonably priced. They have, variously, a four-poster bed with diaphanous drapes, antiques, original working gas fireplace and marble fire surround. Each room has a marble bathroom with a cast iron bath and walk-in shower. ‘Beautifully furnished,’ say our readers, and ‘very atmospheric’. There is no lift, so the fourth-floor attic room is not for everyone. Second-floor rooms have the best views. Food is served all day in the bistro, from the continental breakfast, through brunch (maybe omelette and hash browns; eggs Benedict with smoked salmon), to lobster roll with sweet-potato fries, burgers, steaks, cod and chips and more. There are unchanging specials – Thursday, navarin of lamb, Friday, fish crumble… As a bonus, guests have the use of the spa at big-sister hotel the Empire, round the corner.

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 - Sep, 2012
'We have stayed there on 20+ occasions. Real luxury ' - Jan Sheath - Oct, 2011
