Like Emma below, I returned home yesterday having spent 4 nights over Christmas at the Scarlet. My mixed emotions over what to write or even to review at all are because yet again this was such an enjoyable place to be, and I know the occupancy levels are similar to the best London hotels, that if I tell you, you...

Thank you for your kind words, the atmosphere over the Christmas package was what we always envisaged Christmas would be like at the Scarlet, the feel of a house party and a real home from home experience. I will of course pass on your lovely comments to all the team, they too had a great time and will be so...

Just got back from spending Christmas at The Scarlet. Clearly I loved it but thought I would give some details whilst it's fresh in my mind as I do find other people's reviews useful. The hotel is super clean, stylish and peaceful. The setting and views are fabulous. There is 3 minute walk down to the fabulous beach but the...

Have looked at The Scarlet over the years since it opened but always stuck with our family and couple (kids grown up) favourite hotel down the road at Watergate Bay. Took the plunge this year and nervously booked a two night stay. Now regret not being braver over the years to change. From the moment you arrive you are looked...

Having considered staying at the Scarlet I am really glad that we decided to stay somewhere else. My husband and I decided to visit the Scarlet after visiting the nearby beach.

Thank you for sharing your experience, I was so saddened to hear of what happened whilst you were with us.

We were booked on the sunset spa and dine. We then decided to stay the night. The general feel In The hotel is one of relaxation, the room was comfortable but not exceptional, getting rid of the wall for the bathroom makes the room feel bigger, but I'm not a lover of the toilet being in the bedroom.

It's difficult to sum up in a few words just how special this retreat is. The only way I can convey its true feeling is to imagine you're going to stay with your very best friends mum.

Amazing Stay. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and spa without hesitation and cannot wait to return. The Ayurvedic consultation and the Spa Journey was for me a new and impressive experience.

And it certainly is a retreat...you'll be hard pushed to find a phone signal anywhere round here! The place is great, though straying to show a few signs of its age, in its style and upkeep.
