This was the second time that we have stayed with the Scarlet and before I continue with my review, I want you, the reader, to know that it will not be the last, regardless of any negative comments below or otherwise as overall it is a good hotel. Just some pointers for the hotel (who I know read these): 1.... More

My wife and I stayed in Indulgence Room 11 for four nights July 7 – July 11. The room is on the Reception level . The views from the balcony are breathtaking with a wide sweep of the downs, headland and beach. The balcony had a table with two moulded plastic chairs……which by their nature could not be adjusted and... More

We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing two day break at the Scarlet. Our room had breathtaking views of the bay and the outdoor natural swimming pool. The bed was sooo comfortable and I know want a bath in the middle of my bedroom! The meal we had in the restaurant was outstanding. We also enjoyed their anytime lunch menu and breakfasts.... More

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the hot tub so much... marvellous to relax in after a surf (I do hope there were waves during your stay. Perfect being able to pick up your board and run to the beach from your room) or just to top off a day of pampering. It's also wonderful to hear that you enjoyed... More

Thank you ever so much for your review (although I believe that you may have written 'child friendly' instead of 'friendly, child free', as, as you know, we are an adult-only haven here.) I'm so glad that we impressed you from the minute that you arrived, and that you have a truly wonderful stay. Tom Hunter, our head chef, absolutely... More

We stayed in a Unique Room for two nights on a B&B basis. I will break the review down into sections! : Hotel setting: The hotel has a fabulous setting overlooking the beach and you can walk from the hotel directly onto the beach. There are various rooms where you can relax and most offer a lovely view. We particularly... More

This was not how I felt when I arrived.. I had lost my two for one voucher for the restaurant somewhere en route and was in melt down. The staff could not have been kinder and immediately reassured me they would honour the invisible voucher. A delicious meal and I left feeling calm and serene. Thank you, Scarlet!

It's so lovely to read this! You arrived so stressed (not often I say hello and am answered with "Hello, I'm having a melt down") so it was lovely to be able to see you visibly relax and go on to have a wonderful time... And your guardian angel comment made our day, so thank you very much! We really... More

When initially coming to choose a hotel for our Honeymoon break at the beginning of July, we spent hours scouring through Trip Advisor reviews, Abercrombie hotels, speaking to previous honeymooners and I got recommendations from Venice to the Maldives. During a conversation with my Mum about how we wanted a hassle-free time, no airport and a sunshine but tourist-free break... More

My wife and I stayed here for 48 hours (my wife made the booking) during a trip to see friends in Cornwall. Its location overlooking the Bay, is indeed stunning, with the building being set into the hillside extremely sympathetically and landscaped in a way that does not impair the overall natural habitat. Parking in the inadequate ‘parking area’ is... More
