This is a wonderful hotel. The location is extraordinarily peaceful, almost surrounded by the sea. This was our second stay - both the modern rooms and those in the old house very comfortable. The older rooms a bit more charm but the whole hotel is full of character. No choice meals but Pierre will adapt the menu if there is... More

Arrived on bicycles having come quite some way. Sign from main road said 1.5 miles but it was over 2 hilly miles - this is significant if you've been cycling all day! On arrival, very attentive owners gave us tea and biscuits in the conservatory. Dinner was excellent - no choice but really well cooked, and we got an extra... More

Stayed 6 nights at Burrastow House with Mrs F and was very pleased we made the decision. Excellent tranquil location overlooking the water with excellent walking directly from Burrastow and further afield. Stayed in the Vaila room which is vast in size overlooking both the water and garden/fields. Even spotted the occasional otter and seal from the bedroom window! As... More

We stayed at Burrastow House in May of 2016, and had a wonderful time. The hotel is an old house, refurbished, and we had a suite in the main building. Its setting on the water is breathtaking and evening walks along the shore are very nice. And we enjoyed meeting the shetland ponies in a nearby field. We signed up... More

3 friends stayed in the adjoining Vaila rooms. Extremely comfortable mattresses, lovely 4 poster, pretty twin room although beds very squeaky. Food a highlight. We had delicious risotto, Lemon sole then chocolate cake with a hint of fennel! Delicious wine selection of predominantly French wine, well priced given the remote location. Pierre was lovely and my only regret is that... More

We stayed for dinner bed and breakfast recently. Greeted by the owner who asked, as we were the first guests to arrive, which room we would like. He then showed us all the rooms and left the choice to us. It was a 'surprise' family birthday get together and soon 2 more couples arrived to complete the party. We were... More

We went here for two nights over my sixtieth birthday and had a wonderful time. The bed was really comfortable, the food delicious and the place very individual, cosy and with great character. We loved every moment.

I stayed here at the end of July and it was fantastic. Pierre was very welcoming and is an excellent cook. The location down a winding road by the coast is about as remote as you can imagine. The rooms were modern and well designed. Breakfast was made to order with fresh croissants which you could smell baking when you... More

I love Burrastow. It is in a fantastic location with lots of superb walking nearby. The beds are so comfortable that I actually looked at the label on the mattress so I could buy one of the same make. The one downside is that the fabric of the building could do with some maintenance.We found the food to be delicious... More
