Celebrate Christmas at the Osborne Hotel

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and the Osborne Hotel will make it a Christmas to remember with our fantastic new function suite ready to host your Xmas Party.

Whether it’s the work’s Christmas do, a festive family reunion or an all-out Xmas party with your friends, here at the Osborne Hotel we’ll provide a complete bespoke service that will let you celebrate Christmas however you like.

We can host small dinners to big events in our exclusive Crescent Suite, with its own private entrance and terrace with breath-taking views of the Torbay coast. It doesn’t matter if you’re a group of friends or 130 work colleagues, we can cater for you all. Whatever the size or type of party, our advice for a perfect Christmas party is always to book early.

‘Last year was the busiest Christmas we’ve had,’ explains general manager Anthony George, ‘and we’re expecting the same this year, so the earlier you book the better.

‘We accommodate all group sizes and party types for Christmas, it’s a very busy time for us at the Osborne Hotel thanks to the unique location and exquisite menu we provide. It’s always a lot of fun at Christmas too and we can’t wait to start celebrating the festive season.’

Now is the ideal time to book your Christmas party for 2017 as we still have some dates available to celebrate the festive time of year. We can accommodate all types of parties, whether you’re looking for a sit-down meal or just some drinks and a dance.

By booking ahead you’ll stand a much better chance of getting prime dates like the final two Thursday evenings before Christmas (which in 2017 will fall on 14th & 21st December). These dates tend to be the ones that book out first – so make sure you’re in with a chance!

There’s nothing worse than trying to plan a Christmas party only to find that the venue and entertainment you wanted are no longer available. So, minimise that risk through smart, forward planning. Organise your event way ahead of everyone else so you don’t miss out.

We’ll help you organise the party, which means less stress for you as we lead up to the busiest time of the year. Our aim is for you to have a fantastic party full of Christmas cheer, a true experience to remember.

For a bespoke party tailored to suit your needs, please give us a call on 01803 213311, email enq@osborne-torquay.co.uk or click here to fill out our contact form.

Summer Holiday Activities Near The Osborne Hotel

The Osborne Hotel is only a stone’s throw from Meadfoot Beach, where you can soak up the sun to the sound of crashing waves.

But we know there’s probably a few other things you’d like to do during your stay as well, so we’ve compiled a short list of the best local attractions to keep you active and entertained during your visit.

Babbacombe Model Village

You will feel like a giant as you explore the four-acres of award-winning gardens that show hundreds of model scenes, vehicles and people.

Babbacombe Village is famous for its miniature landscaped gardens almost as much as its model villages and is one of Torquay’s top attractions, ranked number one on Trip Advisor for ‘things to do’ in Torquay and on the English Riviera.

Adults love the humorous representation of British life over the last six decades and the award-winning gardens, while children love the miniature characters and enjoy following the spotter sheet to see what they can find. It’s a must-see while visiting Torquay.

Kents Cavern

Kents Cavern is a cave system in Torquay, Devon, England. You can explore the caves and learn all about human history and how our ancestors survived nearby.

There’s a summer of prehistoric-themed fun this year where children can join the Stone Age School gane in the woodlands and discover pebble decorating, pouch making and spear throwing. You will also get to handle stone-age artefacts and make your very own stone-age pendant for your stone-age necklace.

Torquay Museum

You can travel back 400 million years with a visit to Torquay Museum, which is a family-friendly attraction with lots of hands-on activities for children and adults alike.

Come face-to-face with North-West Europe’s oldest human fossil and the sabre-toothed tigers he shared his Torquay home with 44,000 years ago, and explore life and death in Ancient Egypt, including the coffin of a 2,500-year-old mummified boy. Find out about Torquay’s explorer’s, including the inspiration for Indiana Jones and what life was like in an Devon Farmhouse in the 1800s.

You can also detect your way through Britain’s only Agatha Christie gallery at Torquay Museum, which is dedicated to the life story of the Queen of Crime.

Living Coasts

Living Coasts, Torquay’s award-winning coastal zoo and aquarium, is home to an array of marine life from around the world. Set in a state-of-the-art naturalistic environment, you can journey from the South African coast to a mangrove forest and then onto a sunken wreck.

On your visit you can mingle with the playful penguins, get up close with the otters and come face-to-face with the seals. In the aquarium you will see fish species from around the world while you’ll see birds in the Wader’s Estuary foraging in the grass and the shallow waters for insects.

With a host of events and activities throughout the year, you are sure of a great day out whatever the weather.

Paignton Zoo

Paignton Zoo is home to some of the planet’s rarest and most amazing creatures including gorillas, orangutans, giraffes, lions, tigers and rhinos. There are also hundreds of rare and beautiful plant specimens around the site.

At Crocodile Swamp you’ll come face-to-face with huge crocodiles and large snakes, turtles and fish and don’t miss Amphibian Ark or Monkey Heights.

Paignton Zoo is a registered charity, so not only do you get a good day out, you know your money is going to a good cause, supporting education, scientific research and practical conservation both at home and abroad.
