This was our second time at The Scarlet Hotel and it was as good if not better than I remembered. If you are looking to get away from it all and relax in a child-free environment, I’d highly recommend a stay here in Mawgan Porth. It is one of my favourite hotels in the world, simply because the location is... More

It's wonderful to read that you had such a lovely third stay with us, and I will certainly pass on your compliments to Bonnie. The spa journeys really are something, aren't they? Thank you for taking the time to review us, and we look forward to you returning again soon. More

We'd been in Cornwall for 5 days and Scarlet Hotel was our bit of luxury for our last 2 nights. The staff were friendly and always on hand to help. The setting is second to none and spa areas were luxurious. We had a just right room and it is just that. It was perfect for everything we needed- lovely... More

I enjoyed a surprise weekend at The Scarlet in June 2013 with my boyfriend & left as his fiancé! We had a wonderful stay & really enjoyed the attention to detail, the local Cornish staff, the delicious food, booze (particularly the Camel Valley sparkling wine) & the spa & everything else. The staff were excellent & took the time to... More

We stayed for a 'last' weekend break as just the two of us before our baby arrives in a few short weeks. We had heard great things about the scarlet and had been looking for an excuse to come for ages - the fact that we are not going to be 'child free' for very much longer was the perfect... More

My wife and I stayed in Indulgence Room 11 for four nights July 7 – July 11. The room is on the Reception level . The views from the balcony are breathtaking with a wide sweep of the downs, headland and beach.

This was not how I felt when I arrived.. I had lost my two for one voucher for the restaurant somewhere en route and was in melt down. The staff could not have been kinder and immediately reassured me they would honour the invisible voucher. A delicious meal and I left feeling calm and serene. Thank you, Scarlet!
