Just had 2 nights, in the Scarlet, and it offers a fantastic location looking over Mawgan Porth bay. The views from every part of the hotel are great. The rooms and every part of the hotel are of a very high stand, with designer furniture and furnishing and great art and sculptures. The service was excellent. The grounds were very... More

The Scarlet is in a stunning location, the food we had at dinner and breakfast was first class and the wine list pretty fine! I would highly recommend the hot poultice massage but maybe avoid the outdoor pool in winter if you're not really hardy! Pretty bracing to say the least! ☺ Rooms and staff couldnt be better too!

Absolutely fantastic hotel with amazing views and a relaxed atmosphere. Service was outstanding with the most welcoming staff I've ever encountered. Lunch was great value and they truly surprised us by writing 'happy birthday' on my girlfriend's dessert on their own initiative.

We had a lovely dinner here. Food is amazing and service is very attentive and you are never left alone. The views from the restaurant were incredible and it's good to ask for the tables by the window when you book your table to make the most of it. Only downside was that we had a table in the middle...

We stayed at The Scarlet for five nights in August. We found the hotel using the 'Further Afield' website. We have only very positive things to say about the hotel...the rooms are top notch with views that draw you back again and again, the staff are incredibly helpful and approachable meaning that we felt welcome as soon as we arrived,...

This was our second stay at the Scarlet, so that speaks volumes in itself. This time we went with our two pooches, as the hotel promotes itself as dog-friendly. Only certain rooms are designated ‘dog rooms’, but they work well as they all have direct access to a patio when nature calls. Waiting in the room were bowls, towels and... More

Thank you so much for your review. It's wonderful to read on your return stay you have joined us with your 4 legged companions for a extra special Scarlet experience. Being so closely located to a dog friendly beach is wonderful, the evenings are especially pleasing as the locals descend with their pooches and the beach lights up with excitement.... More

We stayed for a two night anniversary break just last week and desperately didn't want to leave. Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. With only 40 rooms, it's small enough for the excellent and friendly staff to remember you and each and every person we met made us feel truly special. We had a spa journey which was fours... More

What an absolutely beautiful review, thank you so much. I couldn't contain my smile reading about your recent visit, star gazing wrapped up in blankets to me is such a simple pleasure, but can be the most powerful of memories. As you mention, with us only having 37 bedrooms it gives the staff the opportunity to really get to know... More

What a treat this turned out to be! We stayed for one night and struggled to wrench ourselves away, in fact we were welcomed to use the facilities throughout the next day so we did! The hotel is beautiful, smart and cool decor with expensive art works to buy throughout but we felt relaxed from the minute we stepped through... More

Thank you so much for you review The title of your review blew me away, I was very intrigued to read such a bold statement.Your pasty slipper comment made me laugh, I call them elf shoes but I feel the pasty slipper is more appropriate, these are actually made out of plastic bottles, so function and recycled.The hot tub really...

My boyfriend and I have recently returned from a 2 night stay at this wonderful hotel. We were welcomed and shown around the hotel by one of the members of staff before being shown to our room where our luggage was waiting for us.
