My hubby an I had an absolutely amazing stay! We had a beautiful suite and brilliant food, The Hot tube is a MUST and the spa is the best we have been to. The staff could not have done more for us. Will be returning in Feb and we can't wait! �

This hotel is in a beautiful cliff top location overlooking the sandy bay of Morgan Porth. It's location lends itself well to amazing sunsets, beautiful sea views and excellent beach walks, the beach being accessed from the bottom of the garden on a coastal path with steps leading directly down to. Awesome for us with our two dogs. But more...

We booked the Scarlett having stayed there previously , as always great staff amazing location but ..... we were located on a high level with a balcony where the guests next door were constantly smoking which made our room smell horrendous and we had to keep the doors to the balcony closed and completely ruined the oceanside experience . We...

I can't speak highly enough of this hotel, it was a dream 4 night spa break. The views were great, the food in the restaurant was top notch and the spa journey was sooooo good. I loved the fact you could access the beach with a path from the back of the hotel. A great spot, great views and great...

Stayed here for a week, and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves. It is really lovely to visit somewhere where you get the personal touch, and Scarlet is brilliant for this. From the moment we arrived at Reception, we were made to feel very welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The hotel itself is...

We had another great stay at the Scarlet. It is a place where you can switch off from the moment you arrive. Wonderful welcome from the staff. The room was excellent as was the sea view. The bar staff couldn't be faulted with their knowledge of gin and vodkas. The evening meals we had were spot on. We will be...

Location beautiful - views of sea somewhat dependent I guess on position in hotel. Our room overlooked the rooms in front and was low, so perhaps not the best (although I think they're priced very similarly). Room was less spacious than anticipated and, whilst well furnished, the bed was notably smaller. Room contains open plan bathroom which perhaps will not...
