We stayed in summer 2013 and I absolutely loved this hotel. It is a little expensive but it is a fabulous experience and feels special. We booked a spa treatment, used the hot tubs and ate in the restaurant so had a full experience and you needn't venture far to enjoy yourself. It has a very relaxed feel to it... More

So relaxing and perfect in every way. A particular highlight was the spa, where we had a couples' massage lesson, which was expertly delivered and gave us a skill to take away! I also had a surf lesson with Nick who is based just next door in the surf shack and this was also fab (despite being mid Dec!)

So glad that you loved your time here, and it's great to read that you both took away such a valuable and relaxing skill (a massage lesson really is the gift that keeps on giving in my mind). I'm sure your surf lesson was quite the opposite in the relaxing stakes and much more exhilarating, but equally fun. I'll pass... More

I've looked at The Scarlet for a long time and finally went there in December and it lived upto and surpassed all my expectations. Everything about this place runs so smoothly and I've never felt more relaxed or welcome in a hotel. The best hotel I've ever stayed in by far. Thank you very much to all the staff.

Stayed at the Scarlet for a couple of days while we visited the Padstow Christmas Festival. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, rooms great and hot tub lovely and warm even though it was cold and dark. Champagne in the hot tub can't beat it. Recommended!!!

We had a fantastic Minimoon at the hotel just before Christmas, staying in Room 1 which was truly fabulous in every way.

Christmas is not my favourite time! This was our 5th visit to The Scarlet over the last few years and having enjoyed it so much in all seasons, this year we actually went in August too, I thought it was worth trying for the Christmas break. It lived up to my high hopes and it was really enjoyable. The staff... More

Lovely hotel and staff. Great place for a couple to get away. Easy to relax as there is generally no mobile signal. Recommended to all. I stayed in the indulgent room this time. I have also stayed in the unique rooms. I would recommend more the unique rooms with the room above with a bean bag over looking the beach... More

Thank you so much for your review. I agree that the crows nest style rooms above the the unique rooms are so cosy (my personal favourite spot for watching a good storm with a glass of red and a blanket). Do come back and see us again soon! Kind regards Erica House Manager More

We stayed at the Scarlet between the 8th and 12th December 2014 and it was the most relaxing pleasurable hotel and spa experience we have had. The rooms are wonderful, views to die for, the spa and therapists were just brilliant. We will certainly be back. The fact that this is just for adults made us enjoy the stay all... More

The staff, either front of house, restaurant, bar or housekeeping cannot do enough to make your stay as relaxing as possible. The food was exceptional, better than the previous meals we have had.
