The accolade follows a multi-million-pound refurbishment, which has “stayed faithful” to the hotel’s art deco heritage and delivers new standards of modern contemporary luxury.
Now in its seventh year, The Times Travel Awards 2019 is an opportunity to “reward and recognise” the destinations and companies that have provided “exceptional experiences”. This year there are 12 categories in total, covering all areas of travel including Best Airline, Best luxury Tour Operator and Best City.
The hotel is operated by Inn-telligence, hotel management specialists, which were the project managers on the renovation.
Giles Fuchs, owner of the Burgh Island Hotel, said: “We are delighted to be nominated for this prestigious award. It is a great accolade for the Hotel, which reflects the high-quality hospitality and unique sense of luxury that the refurbishment has delivered.
