Afternoon Tea at The Palm Court
Lovely afternoon tea at this beautiful venue. Our very helpful waiter moved the table setting for us so we were comfortable. It was a very enjoyable experience.
If you, as my husband and I are, are a fan of art deco and all things Agatha Christie then afternoon tea at the Palm Court at the Burgh Island Hotel is a must do. The setting is so atmospheric, on an island you can only reach at low tide, the setting for "and then there were none." The hotel decor is a homage to the era, and the palm court is exquisite, look out for the mermaids on the bar. The afternoon tea itself is good value, not cheap but like the environment it is incredibly Instagram-able and very decadent. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming - I look forward to returning if I am ever in Devon again!
Fantastic experience - a lovely birthday treat. The trip to the Island was by tractor as it was high tide. We were early but that was no problem for the staff who were all extremely friendly and helpful. Superb art deco decor, excellent scones and cream, lovely view and had to have a glass of fizz to honour spirit of the place. It's a 'must do' if in the area. Loved it!
Really nice vintage afternoon tea in this splendid hotel and beautiful location
Lovely ambiance, great setting, very welcoming friendly service
The location is truly stunning and the afternoon tea is very good. The customer service is highly variable with an unreliable receptionist who did not schedule our visit and took little responsibility for the mistakes made. Ensure your parking and transport to the island is clear.
My husband & I had the most amazing day. We were collected by sea tractor and driven across golden sands where we met a smartly dressed man who directed us through to the hotel. We were warmly welcomed and we felt like we had stepped into a different time - the attention to detail - the food / the service all excellent - the venue was beyond our expectations and I have to say it was one of the best days of our lives - I highly recommend Burgh Island Hotel - we were driven back to the car park also! The views were amazing ! We will definitely be returning! Thank you for a truly excellent afternoon - our 2 year Anniversary treat far exceeded our expectations ! I’ve been telling everyone about it!
Outstanding service in an exceptional Art Deco hotel and the most unique Island setting we have experienced!
All staff were incredibly gracious and attentive.
We stayed for tea but will return for a full holiday next!
Excellent service, staff were friendly and very professional. This visit to Burgh Island was our first time and fulfilled an ambition to visit it. It will not be the last time we visit. Decor was as we imagined-lovely and a homage to Art Deco. Nothing was too much trouble and staff were very attentive to our needs. This was just a day trip fo4 us and if this is the standard for a simple visit and cream tea the we look forward to returning for a meal or perhaps a stay. Well done to all! Best wishes, Mary Anne and Tom Hamilton
Lovely hotel in a fantastic setting. Obviously loved the Art Deco decor. Loved the Pilchard Inn too. Great experience.
Even though I had apparently only booked us in for a cream tea although I am sure I wasn't given the option. The staff pulled out all the stops and provided us with a lovely afternoon tea. Beautiful place, fantastic staff.
Dear LesleyO, thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your experience. We are delighted to hear that the team made your stay special despite the little hiccup. We look forward to seeing you soon again. Best wishes, Kati Latchford (Director of Food & Beverage)
