We were given the stay at the Scarlet for Xmas and were very excited about our stay at the hotel. From enquiring about the rooms and spa the reception desk couldn't of been more helpful and friendly.
We arrived to a lovely room, we had room 2 Spacious and loved it. The open plan room and views were amazing. We were both very happy and chilled on the balcony. As there are no tea facilities in the room we rang down and a tray appeared a while later - I liked this.
We also booked in for evening meals and enjoyed he bar and atmosphere before we were escorted to our table. We found all of the staff friendly but not intrusive. The hotels public rooms are gorgeous, lovely decor, modern and comfortable.
The evening meals were OK I can't say absolutely great but a good standard. It was probably my choice on the menu that made the meal not as great as it could of been.
Breakfast - lots of choice and lovely local apple juice.
We booked a spa treatment - hot poltice massage and while nice for the money just wasn't worth it. What I really wanted was a good deep tissue massage and nothing fancy. The massage wasn't good value for the £95 each it cost. However the rooms, pool and especially the hanging pod room was amazing. After the massage you are taken to a dark room with hanging tents, you pop inside and wrap your self in a fleecy blanket and I was asleep in minutes for over an hour. Heavenly.
No mobile reception but wifi in the public areas and internet access in each room. My ipad could get wifi in our room after obtaining a code from reception.
The last day we had booked for complimentary head massages but for some reason only one of us got the treatment (head & foot) and my husband missed out. I should of mentioned it at the time, but I thought I'd made a mistake, it wasn't until we got home and checked our email - we should of had a treatment each. I enjoyed both to myself though, LOL. He'll get one next time. I loved it, felt relaxed and the weather was glorious. We just wished we had an extra day to truly chill out.
