We just returned from 3 nights stay at The Scarlet and found it to be pretty much the perfect place to stay. It really is superlative in a number of different ways; 1) The location is stunning. Perched on the hillside overlooking the beautiful Mawgan Porth bay, the architecture has been cleverly devised to ensure that wherever you are in... More

We recently visited The Scarlet to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were made to feel special the moment we arrived, not to forget the flowers and cakes in our room too. Nothing is too much trouble to the staff here - the whole team are exemplary and must enjoy working in this much loved special place. Fabulous room, wonderful... More

We had a few hours to fill before our flight from Newquay so headed here. They kindly allowed us to go through their beautiful gardens to access the beach for a couple of hours before lunch. The meal was served on the terrace that overlooks the inviting naturally-cleaned pool. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was very... More

The Scarlet could hardly be better situated. It is on a slope above a beautiful Cornish bay with endlessly changing views of the sea and wide skies. The gardens are lovely and there is an outdoor, natural pool, cleaned by reeds, as well as an indoor spa pool. Rooms and beds are comfortable and it's very peaceful at night. What... More

Wow - what a beautiful hotel in a simply stunning setting. We had a generous double room, which was lovely. The views out over the bay are outstanding. We were there after our wedding a few days before in the Cotswolds, and the staff had left us a card in the room for our arrival saying congratulations, which was sweet.... More

Finally a hotel that just hits the mark for couples...if your looking for a getaway that's child free and fuss free then look no further. My husband surprised me with a few days at this little bit of heaven and boy it didn't disappoint. From the relaxed atmosphere, lack of dress code or indeed any rules, to the amazing staff... More

Pretty much the perfect hotel! Having stayed at many hotels round the world I can honestly say that the Scarlet is up there with the best. They just get everything right.
