“excellant lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

my husband and myself went to the scarlet hotel for lunch recently and I have to say it was beautiful. three courses for £22.50 lovely good choices and for a lunch time nothing to heavy.the wine is very expensive but very nice our bottle was£38 . the setting makes it all worth while and I cannot comment about the staff enough very helpful ,happy people ,not snotty at all and not that kind of place where the staff thinks they are better than the customers for working there which I do find in a lot of places .they are closed January but after that re open give it a try and see for yourselfs hopefully you will not be disappointed

There is no doubt that this is by best hotel we've ever stayed in..... the location is perfect! Excellent food and service. Hot tubs on the cliff top. We stayed in a generous room and slept with the patio doors each night, so soothing listening to the waves below.

A sanctuary - in the true sense of the word - beautiful, calm and serene with the most delicious food surrounded by nature and art all provided by wonderful service. Our 3 days felt like at least a weeks break . We left refreshed, revived and thoroughly spoilt. The Journey at the Spa was the best experience I've had - great value compared to other spa experience I've had. If you really need to stop and be - just book a break here.

This was a very special treat for my fiance and I, as we don't really have the funds to stay in places like this on a regular basis! I have to say, although it was expensive, it was money well-spent. The hotel itself is unlike anywhere we have ever stayed and was very special. We stayed in a 'unique' room, which was just that, and we enjoyed the luxury it afforded. The room service was wonderful and I very much enjoyed sipping a cocktail whilst reclining in the bathtub! It was lovely to stroll down to the bar in the evening and be waited on whilst we waited to go to the restaurant for our evening meal. The food, again, was a special treat as it was very rich and opulent, and had obviously been given a lot of thought. They were also very accommodating of my 'gluten free status' and advised me on what dishes could be altered to suit me. All in all, this was a wonderful treat and we had a wonderful time.

The scarlet hotel is an absolute gem!

We booked 3 nights for our honeymoon after a recommendation from a friend. This hotel surpassed all expectations and was an oasis of calm after a hectic year of wedding planning.

The staff are so accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. You can order a pot of tea at anytime from anywhere in the hotel and within a couple of minutes it arrives - a lovely touch.

I must recommend the hot tub on the cliff tops; we went at 8pm and even though it was raining it was the perfect way to finish our break with a glass of bubbly.

Can't wait to come again

This is a lovely hotel with fabulous views, nicely situated rooms with great vistas over the bay. Food excellent and interesting choices of wines, spirits, beers etc., not all the usual brands. Pool is amazing if a little small, great views over the ocean, and good steam room and relaxation room to unwind in. Hot tubs on the cliff top are an unusual feature and great at sunset, even when it's chilly out! Friendly and helpful staff, including when the fresh tea and coffee is brought to your room in the morning (at no extra charge!). Highly recommended, would definitely stop there again. Pure escapism.

The staff are exceptional. From walking through the door to the room service, the spa and the restaurant they seem to genuinely want you to have the most special time possible.

We really don't normally go back to places as we enjoy new experiences and new locations. Scarlet is the exception, we just feel at home, and at peace.

Everything about the place is just so "right" and yes I do look for "wrong" (check out my other reviews!) but can never find it.

We hope to enjoy many more visits over the coming years.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing... the views are just to die for...
