My husband and I stayed at the hotel on a dinner, b & b basis and both agreed that the food was one of the highlights of our stay. Each course was delicious and cooked to perfection. A real treat.

We enjoyed 2 lovely dinners at the Scarlet during our stay. The food was simply delicious. A lovely menu with a fantastic selection of vegetarian dishes amongst other local and seasonal meat and fish choices. A great wine list and service was excellent.

I took my partner here for her birthday, we had both heard good things about the restaurant and were not disappointed. Everything oozes of quality. The welcome we received was very warm and all throughout the staff were excellent. The view is to die for, but where on the North Coast of Cornwall isn't? And as for the food, well... More

Went here on my birthday and have been singing it's praises since. Me and my partner went for the day. Had a spa day lunch and asked to look at the menu and that was it. Booked it and arrived later that evening. Massive selection of wine list. And not silly prices. Had a few nibbles on arrival and looked... More

I booked into this restaurant to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary with my husband whilst we were on holiday. As we walked into the hotel, the view was amazing, we both stood with our mouths open!! The huge window with the infinity pool/pond when the sun was just setting was beautiful. We were taken into the bar area where we... More

While I would rate the food here as very good, the overall impression is that you are paying a lot for a very small portion, slow service - near benign neglect unless you can track someone down. Does not appear as if anyone is responsible for any given table - seems to be a handoff system where you are ignored... More

We were extremely shocked to read how disappointing your service in the restaurant was (you know yourself , having enjoyed New Year with us, that this is absolutely not how we usually operate) and our food and beverage manager is looking into this fully. If you could contact her directly at meeche.hudd@scarlethotel.co.uk she would be ever so grateful, as she... More

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.
