Good Hotel Guide Review

Good Hotel Guide

Arrive by sea tractor (‘an experience in itself’) to fully appreciate this ‘amazing’ Grade II listed hotel – an ‘Art Deco tour de force’, and a dreamlike tribute to the now-faded glamour of the 1930s. ‘It’s a complete one-off.’ The setting, on a tidal island at the end of Bigbury beach, is ‘magical’: ‘What total pleasure, to walk round the island with a gin and tonic as the sun set, then to sit by the roaring fire in the Pilchard Inn.’ Pick among bedrooms individually decorated with vintage finds in period style, each given the name of one of the hotel’s famous – and infamous – guests (Josephine Baker and Gertie Lawrence among them). ‘A sofa set by the window in our room made the most of the amazing sea views.’ Dinner is a ball – almost literally. ‘It’s simply impossible to be overdressed at Burgh Island,’ the owners say; give in to the spirit of the place, and show up in black tie or evening gown. Chef Tim Hall’s daily-changing menus are ‘very good’; in the morning, an ‘outstanding’ breakfast awaits. (AT)
