Burgh Island hotel is an iconic Art Deco landmark and retreat, positioned on a wildly beautiful and secluded tidal island. The hotel was once described as a shining white ocean liner surrounded by golden beaches and silver seas. How true this continues to be today.
There are so many stories of eccentricity to be discovered and rediscovered on Burgh. Built in 1929, extended in 1932 and now restored to its ’30s glamour, the beauty and intrigue of this fabulous legendary island has drawn in guests looking to indulge in a unique island experience since the 1930’s. Once you have visited, you’ll never want to leave. It is no surprise that Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and other pre-war luminaries made Burgh Island their second home. In homage to this rich history most of the 25 rooms and suites bears the name of a visiting guest and is a nod to a bygone era.
Fine food is high on the agenda at Burgh Island, from exquisite dishes and dancing in the Grand Ballroom, afternoon tea or lunch whilst enjoying the stunning views in Palm Court, to hearty pub grub served in the 700 year old Pilchard Inn, there is something to suit every occasion.
