Quirky modern hotel with Eco friendly standards. Eco friendly was cursed when their shampoo went in my eye!!! Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. From the creaking noises above our room, first thing in the morning, something needed oiling. On the funny side it was over and done in a few minutes and spotting the culpable... More

We were out walking for much of our visit so did not make full use of the sitting area up the staircase or the terrace. we have booked to return for the Bank Holiday and have chosen a lesser room, but with a seaview. We will also be booking some treatments and bringing our pool wear! The restaurant menus are... More

An absolute dream. We stayed in the large king-size rooms, which were gorgeous. The rooms are simple and spacious, with a walk-in shower (no door, just a clever design like a beach shower) and a huge freestanding bath. The inclusive breakfast in the room was amazing...we got a menu each morning and were encouraged to order "one of everything" just... More

Thank you for your kind comments with regards to you most recent stay, it sounds like you had a wonderful and relaxing time. We are especially glad that you loved the breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day, which is why we decided to create such a special, daily changing menu for it, and also offer complimentary room... More

We stayed at the Scarlet for their Winter Warmer short break, to which we had added the five course taster menu. This was our second visit and it didn't let us down. Our room was comfortable with sea views and we could go out on the balcony to hear the fresh (a bit too fresh - wild!) Cornish air and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay (and your awful accident). We all hope that you're well on the road to recovery... the cliffs are beautiful but can be treacherous in wild winter weather, I agree. Please do come back and visit us again soon, so you can make full use of the facilities, it would... More

We have just returned home from another fabulous stay at The Scarlet, having been spoilt and pampered, within an inch of our lives, thank you again.

We stayed for 5 nights in May 2014, and were lucky enough to have 25 degree heat and sunshine for most of that time, which no doubt enhanced our experience. Nevertheless, the hotel was superb. It's very modern throughout, stylish but not garish. We stayed on a DBB rate. The food is superb although there was little variation in the... More

Our second time staying at the Scarlet and everything was just as perfect as we'd remembered. The staff are lovely, friendly, helpful and professional, always available but never overbearing. The food and facilities are fantastic and obviously the location is stunning, a sea view from every room is the icing on the cake. Can't wait until the next visit!

I am lucky I get to travel to many hotels and this is up there with one of the best I have ever been too.

Food was amazing, location was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful, and you never feel rushed. The room we had (basic room) was very small though, so given the choice I'd go for a larger room. We also took the hot tub experience, which was very well worth it.
