We have just returned from our third trip to the Scarlet Hotel and I really think it gets better every time. The hotel is undeniably stunning in location but, over and above the amazing views, the staff make this a wonderful place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble and the whole ambience is one of a relaxed, chilled out... More

We stayed at the Scarlet Hotel recently for an anniversary. We paid for one of the indulgent rooms. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, the views are stunning and the hotel itself it lovely. We made use of the spa which was also beautiful and relaxing. I would however say that the service within the restaurant does not reflect... More

There are hotels, there are spas, and then there is the Scarlet - a haven of tranquility and perfect service nestling in the cliffside and overlooking a wide sandy beach. The Scarlet says that it aims to give guests an experience which is less a hotel visit, more like staying with friends. As much as I love my friends, I... More

Nice hotel, but not our cup of tea. Cons: Parking shocking and finding hotel not brill, lots of hidden extra charges like to use the hot tub. Wifi plays up a lot. Overpriced, the reception area is awkward, ring up for tea and coffee inconvenient, food not as great as local restaurants. My husband and I agreed the bed was... More

We spent two nights for our wedding anniversary and loved it. Lovely rooms with sea views and fantastic food. Hotel is very peaceful and you'd hardly know there were other guests other than dinner times. Would definitely go back.

We've been coming to Mawgan Porth for the last few years now, as a couple and with friends for the end of Sept, early Oct. During this time we have booked dinner for my husband and friend's birthday and we have always had a great time.

Thank you for taking the time to let others know of your experience, and I'm so glad that you enjoyed a birthday celebration with us. You absolutely do need to stay with us and try the hot tubs for yourself (they are quite different from the usual in the fact that there's no jets, so they are so amazingly relaxing...... More

After much research on the internet visited the Scarlet for a break at the end of September. The hotel is really tucked away but in a fabulous position over looking the bay at Mawgan Porth. The car park is compact but when busy they double park the vehicles & keep your keys, that wasn't a problem. They must have a... More

We decided to treat ourselves to an end of a busy working season break and it was perfect in every way, with the whole experience being relaxed and laid back luxury. The room was modern and comfortable with the most amazing coastal views from the balcony. The spa area and pool was an oasis of calm and the treatments were... More

Glad you're feeling more calm and relaxed after a busy summer (not surprising, especially following some time in the spa!). It's wonderful to hear that you're planning on returning. Thank you ever so much for your review - I'll enjoy passing it on to the team this afternoon. More

This was our anniversary and we could not have celebrated in better style. Fantastic food, exemplary service, wonderful facillities with nothing being too much trouble. This is the way for all other hotels to follow. Absolutely value for money and you definitely get what you pay for. We will visit every year!!
