This is the third time we have visited The Scarlet and the welcome was like being welcomed back home. The hotel is impeccable - the décor, the staff, the service, the food, the spa...everything! We called to book - and were allocated room 37, which is a "Just Right", but has a double walk-in shower rather than a bath and... More

I just can't say enough about the scarlet Hotel. The hotel is based on relaxation and it does things slightly differently to other 5 star hotels. The staff are friendly and will chat with you. There is no reception desk so a member of staff will come out to greet you and book you in. The atmosphere is that of... More

It sounds like you really had some 'together time', what with a couple's treatment, hot tub and dinner... romance and relaxation combined - perfect! I will really enjoy passing on your comments to the team here (I completely agree with your wife's comments with regards to the facial... just make you feel fabulous both inside and out). Thank you for... More

Stayed here for one night in June 2014. The service from booking, throughout the stay and until we left was brilliant. All the staff were very helpful and always on hand if you needed them. We had a just Right room on the found floor at the end of the building which was perfect. Plenty of space for two people,... More

We went to the Scarlet at the end of June. It was my partners 30th, so I booked the day package 'Spend Time Together'. £150 for the both of us. The day was incredible. The Scarlet is the ultimate in relaxation. The package included a Cliffside hot tub and Rhassoul. The nice thing about the Scarlet is that they obviously... More

Wow! What a perfect birthday gift (and even more wonderful that you got to share in the pampering, too). I think that photo does sum it up perfectly - sun, sea and summertime drinks - a lovely way to see in the thirties, for sure. Thanks for your review. We're so glad you had a wonderful, special day, and hope... More

Well first up, my apologies for posting this review late. I think (from my photo dates) I stayed at The Scarlet in February 2014. To be honest, it was such a dream that at times I think I imagined the whole thing! I'm not actually kidding :) I actually attempted a review at the time, something went wrong on Tripadvisor... More

This is the 3rd or 4th time we've visited and I felt compelled to write a review this time as the Scarlet continues to offer an excellent experience. It's a beautifully designed eco-hotel on the Cornish coast with a great spa. Children aren't allowed and everything is focused on a relaxing experience. The food is very good as is the... More

Ah, the joys of the good old British summer. We can go from providing wellies and hot chocolate to parasols and cocktails in the blink of an eye, though, so hopefully we can cater for whatever is thrown at us! I'm really happy to hear that you find us as excellent as when you first visited. Thank you ever so... More

If you are looking for a place to recharge your batteries then this is it. The facilities are excellent Try the Hot Tub experience and Tri Dosha Consultation to understand what makes your body work or not as the case may be. The staff never say No and are always on hand but not in your face. I will return

My family have absolutely fallen in LOVE with the Scarlett including my lil man Rigby, ( our black miniature schnauzer!!)

We stayed for two nights 2/3rd of August, arriving somewhat jaded after an enjoyable but exhausting week with grandchildren. What a blissful place the Scarlet is, everything about it is geared to encourage grown up relaxation. The use of natural materials around the hotel and the artwork seems to have a very calming effect. We had a Just Right room... More

You certainly deserved a treat after the week you'd had from what I remember! I'm glad you had a lovely time, and hope you left us feeling recharged and revived. I've passed on your kind comments to Emily, thank you very much. It's also nice to hear that you're a fan of a good old fashioned 'proper cup of tea',... More
