We have wanted to visit this hotel and spa for some time now, based on its excellent reputation. We were not disappointed! Every detail of the building and the fixtures has been carefully thought through. Everywhere you sense light and space, and a sense of quiet luxury. The spa in particular is just awesome--a beautiful indoor pool, superb treatments, a... More

We are a married couple in our 70s and this was our second visit. This time, we booked a Spacious King room on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the bay. The view was magnificent and the balcony would have been a wonderful facility in a warmer month. The room was large with all the facilities we could possibly... More

Our 4th visit this year for our anniversary and as good as ever. You can't beat the location of this hotel; I will never tire of the view over the bay. As always - an amazing, relaxing stay. Fantastic rooms, service and meals in the restaurant. We will be back again next year :)

This hotel is breathtaking. Amazing views, very dog friendly, modern and clean. There are nice touches such as the lighting system and the bed linen quality. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Caroline stands out as friendly and warm. The outdoor hot tub at sun down is an experience not to be missed. Time literally stands still and worries... More

My partner and I are both teachers and have 4 children ranging from 2 to 15. So to say we are stressed and exhausted most of the time is an understatement. I booked a room at Scarlet for one night as a surprise for his birthday. I also booked two treatments, one massage each and a shared Rassoul. The whole... More

The Scarlet Hotel is situated above the bay at Mawgen Porth and has to be one of the most stunning locations for a hotel anywhere in the West Country, It was perfect for accessing the coastal path with fantastic walks around the coastline.
