Just returned from a few days at this hotel and ate in the restaurant one evening (and breakfast twice) Breakfast was good with a great amount of variety and well sourced. However, we both found dinner to be aesthetically pleasing rather than delicious. An "ox cheek and beef" main dish priced somewhere in the region of £22 was one ox... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed breakfast with us, but was saddened to see that there were aspects of your dinner experience that did not live up to your, nor our, expectations, and that you were left feeling a little underwhelmed. We would really like to have a chat with you... More

Disappointed with the lack of choice, though the food we ate was very good. Lots of original ideas & flavours but if you ate there every night it would mean eating the same dishes as only the odd meal was changed each day. Staff friendly if a bit dippy, but in the best possible way

Very stylish restaurant with fabulous views. Additional menu for vegetarians with a good choice. Food beautifully presented and you leave the restaurant feeling well fed but comfortable. Perfect.

The views on the outside terrace is idyllic. We had a fantastic evening and, if it gets a little chilly, they bring you blankets! Food of a high standard and good service

Snuggled under a blanket with a drink, for a spot of stargazing is just the best way to round off an evening of good food and laughter. Thanks for letting us know that you had such a nice night with us - always great to pass on to the team. Please do pop in and see us next time you... More

The Scarlet was recommended to us as a beautiful spot for lunch. We were so glad we took the advice and visited for lunch - it was the highlight of our honeymoon.

Visited The Scarlett Hotel whilst on holiday with our friends, it was their wedding anniversary so we wanted somewhere special to celebrate the occasion. The view was wonderful as the sunset over the bay.The food was amazing it exceeded our expectations and the ambience was very relaxing. The service from our waitress Michelle was excellent. We will definitely be returning.
