Summary

“Perfect is the only word to describe Burgh Island”, with its “candle-lit dining room, fabulous band” and “unique” atmosphere (“great for fans of Art Deco or Agatha Christie”)… all of which slightly outshine the food; “go for the black-tie experience in the ballroom” for full effect.

Summary

“Could you find a more romantic destination” than this “thrilling” Art Deco hotel, beloved of Agatha Christie, and offering “the chance to dress up” (if not to do away with your fellow guests!)? Reporters all “love the place” – though, to quibble, the food, albeit good, is not the equal of the “unique atmosphere” and “terrific” cocktails.

Summary

“What could be more romantic than an island retreat from the 1930s?”“dress up, enjoy the wonderful cocktails and then delve into the excellent menu”; even the odd sceptic, for whom the “food and service don’t quite live up to expectations”, can’t fault the “marvellous” setting and “fabulous” cocktails at this serene Art Deco hotel (an old haunt of Agatha Christie).

Summary

With its “idyllic” setting on a small island, this famous, Agatha Christie-style, 1920s hotel is a “really special” place, especially during one of its regular black-tie dinners. To a minority its cuisine doesn’t match up, but most reports say the “brilliant” cooking makes for an “absolutely fantastic” all-round experience.
