We stayed 2 nights at The Scarlet and just booked the restaurant for first night, but it was so good we went back. Lovely food and helpful friendly staff. Only criticism is on the wine list which because it is an 'Eco' hotel only serves European wines. I personally think this is taking the Eco thing a bit too seriously-... More

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea were sampled during our stay at The Scarlet and all were immaculate! As a guest, it was great having the option of complimentary room service and the option to dine wherever is comfortable in whatever we feel like - no formal dress code. The view of the beach from the restaurant is gorgeous.

Interesting menu, beautiful view, delicious food and superb service. The food is locally sourced and the furthest the wine has travelled is from Spain with local Cornish wine championed. Five star in every way.

every course is gorgeous and the sharing puddings for two are not to be missed. The big healthy sharing plates delivered to your room are brilliant for nibbling at while watching the sea.

You really can't fault the Scarlet. Forget your trendy buzzy London Michelin Stars. This is as close to heaven as you can get. Views of the sea, a hum of happy people eating the most delicious, fresh, expertly cooked local food, served by the most professional staff. Only Cornwall can produce this atmosphere in this architecturally stunning hotel. No children,... More

I had lunch here a couple of weeks ago - excellent service and good food. What I cannot justify are the prices for the miniscule portions served. Duck terrine to start - delicious but literally a sliver the size of a matchbox with the tiniest bit of salad I have ever seen. Then a cheese soufflé with a walnut and... More
