This was our second visit to Burgh Island - the first had been in winter in 2012. From the first glimpse of this magnificent hotel on the approach into Bigbury-on-Sea it lives up to expectations from start to finish. The Beach House is separate from the main hotel, and offers complete privacy and stunning panoramic views. The furnishings a decor... More

The Views are awesome. The Service was impeccable. The Ambience was from the 1930's and our entire party was treated like celebrities. The food was fantastic. It is the first place to go if you really want to "switch off". There is no television, no cell phone service and I found the stress going away before my massage. Evening clothes... More

We stayed in the Cunard Room with it's splendid views across the bay. The room was art deco at its best, we found all the staff were attentive and friendly, the food extremely good. We enjoyed dressing up for each evening meal and dancing to the Art Deco Trio band on Saturday night. Loved traveling on the sea tractor at... More

From the moment you approach Burgh Island it’s simply breath taking. There it sits on its own little island small but magnificent. Having called the hotel as advised before you approach as there really is no mobile phone signal, we was met by a charming gentleman who advised us the private garage parking arrangements. He then took us and our... More

Like many people this has been on our bucket list however we have peeked too early....so a few return visits are now a must. We have no idea where our 4 day stay disappeared to. We stayed in the Nettlefold Suite which has beautiful views from the full length balcony out to sea and across the bay. The chef should... More

This place is absolutely idlic. Last time we stayed in Noel Coward but decided to treat ourselves to the Beach house. Wow! It is billed as... More

Burgh Island offers a trip back into the past - particularly the art deco period. It's a nice escape from the usual hectic lifestyle. We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night. Saturday was by far the best thanks to the 'period' live music that was excellent. Food also really good. Pretty good value given the quality of the food... More

Reception was uncrowded and our room... More
