Visited for my 60th birthday. Burgh Island is a very special place for me, and the hotel enjoys a special location on this beautiful island. However, I simply couldn't appreciate what the hotel was trying to create, and couldn't wait to pay the bill and leave. I couldn't see beyond the whole place needing a serious makeover. Clearly many people can. On the plus side the food and service were good. Thought this place was seriously expensive too.
