By the 1930s Burgh Island had become one of the most popular hotels of its time. Improvements and additions to the hotel were made during the 1930s, including the addition of The Captain’s Cabin, literally the captain’s cabin of HMS Ganges, a warship built in 1821. The Captain’s Cabin forms part of The Nettlefold seafood restaurant and can also be used as a private dining room for small parties.
