We had read a review of the Scarlet shortly after it opened so decided to stay here for our 10th Wedding Anniversary.
We stayed in a Just Right room which was lovely, once we got used to the (very) open plan bathroom! The view of the sea, and the sound of the waves through the window were incredible, helped by the best weather we have ever experienced in Cornwall.
We ate at the hotel both nights and the food was amazing, although the service on Saturday night and Sunday morning, although friendly and welcoming, was a little slow. (I think possibly they were training new staff?)
According to the member of staff who showed us to our room the outdoor pool is rarely used, but we would encourage it as it was fabulous when we got used to the unheated temperature.
The layout of the hotel leads to the feeling that it is almost empty - despite the number of guests staying it never felt crowded or too busy.
Overall we had a great time, didn't want to leave, and will be back (when we have saved up!)
The website is a little difficult to use - prices were wrong when we tried to book, and there was a bit of a mix up so I would advise calling them as they were very helpful on the phone.
