My husband just got back from a 4 day stay at the amazing and beautiful Scarlet. We have 2 young children so this was a rare getaway for us without the children. From the moment we booked the staff were fantastic helping us with any questions we had. When we arrived our room, view, food, scenery , spa everything was... More

Loved it here, perched up on top of the cliff with the sea roaring away below. Our room looked out onto the bay with huge sliding glass doors that with any hint of sunshine made the room feel like it was in the Mediterranean. Truly beautiful to watch the sunset from the bed and just relax. The pool and spa... More

Thank you ever so much for your review. Our design really does make the most of the dramatic views and sunsets, doesn't it? I'm glad that, despite some aspects of our design not quite being to your taste with regards to your room this stay (they are all slightly different), you had a magnificent time and I trust that you...

We put the Scarlet as the first destination of our 2 week holiday in Cornwall. After 6 months without a proper holiday, working in London, this was exactly what we needed. From the minute we arrived, the surroundings, facilities, the room and most of all the staff made it an unforgettable experience. Nothing feels like too much to ask. The... More

Gorgeous photos from your balcony... who wouldn't feel fabulous waking to a view like that?! Lovely to hear that you enjoyed what, by the sound of it, was a much needed break away. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time down here and left looking forward to returning in the future. More

We had a one night stay in a just right room to celebrate our wedding. We arrived well before our room was ready but were made to feel very welcome, we used the fantastic spa facilities. I seriously want a reed pool now in my garden!! It was incredible. Once booked in the room was perfect...just right! The hot tub... More

Thank you so much for your review. I made sure that I spoke to your waitress last night, and I let her know that your husband loved her recommendations so much. Glad you had a super time with us. I hope you get your reed bed pond one day, but until then it's the perfect excuse to keep coming back... More

We actually got engaged at this hotel but the stay would have been amazing regardless!! The location is fab..the hotel is almost hewn out of the cliff with easy access to the beach and walks and views of the coast to die for. The rooms are amazing..we had a duplex one with a garden courtyard and a little viewing deck... More

This hotel is amazing. My partner and I returned yesterday from the most fabulous and relaxing long weekend. The staff couldn't have been more helpful yet the service was discreet and in no way overbearing. The food was divine and the quality of the ingredients immediately discernible, it was unfussy and unbelievably tasty. The fact the menu changed regularly meant... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts... It's great to read that you had such a fantastic time, and it's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the restaurant so much. Tom, our head chef, works hard with our suppliers to ensure that we have the freshest produce of the season daily, so the menu is always changing and there's always something... More

We stayed for 2 nights at The Scarlet for our 10th wedding anniversary. We always go to very nice hotels for our anniversary, but this was something else. The staff made everything seem effortless and this added to the wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. We booked the 'couples journey' which included a consultation, hot tub (overlooking the sea) and couples massage, all... More

I'm so glad that you had such a special time for such a special celebration! The couple's journeys are really perfect for a romantic break... I don't believe there's many other ways to spend time together that are quite as relaxing and indulgent! Hopefully this won't be the last anniversary that you decide to spend with us and that you...

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
