The best Hotel experience I have ever had I cannot say more than that. Eleven out of ten for room, service, food, drink and entertainment. Beautiful views and a stunning location. Home made cake for tea too.

My wife and I stayed at the Scarlet for 4 nights to celebrate our Ruby wedding. It was an inspired choice in every respect. The staff were charming and helpful without ever being overbearing or intrusive. The hotel itself has been imaginatively designed to maximise the incredibly beautiful views of the bay and furnished tastefully and interestingly with the occasional...

Happy anniversary, once again, and we are so glad that such a special, romantic celebration was so magical and memorable for you both!

I am lucky enough to have been on some wonderful holidays in lots of amazing places worldwide, but can honestly say The Scarlet is my favourite. The location is great... don't pull your curtains at night or you will miss the amazing view you wake up to every morning! Don't get up early, order breakfast to your bed... delicious! Don't...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review... we couldn't have written the 'don'ts' better ourselves! You're absolutely correct in saying that all rooms have sea views. As every room is slightly different the team are always happy to chat through options to ensure that the perfect fit is found. Also we do, indeed, have specific...

I decided to treat my wife to a stay here as i recently had been told about it as a few friends had stayed. It was a birthday/valentines present and we were thoroughly looking forward to it but nothing could prepare us for what we were about to experience. We decided to have lunch before room check in and although...

My husband and I are just back from our 3rd visit to the Scarlet. With busy lives in London it is hard to switch off and the Scarlet seems to be our sanctuary where all stresses melt away.

We love the Scarlet Hotel, you really do feel away from the rest of the wold and nothing better then sitting up on the decked area sipping a cold glass of wine while looking over the sea..... It really is paradise in Cornwall and could not recommend it enough.

I've really noticed the last few days that the cliffs are starting to bloom, and the gorse is really blooming and smelling fabulous - a sure sign that spring is on its way, bringing along with it those precious sunny days on the decking, watching the sea and the sunsets with a glass of wine. Thank you ever so much...

Yet another fantastic weekend, despite the howling wind. We returned to the usual friendly reception where we were instantly offered tea and coffee with homemade biscuits. The rooms are spotless and the views spectacular. Each meal we had in the restaurant brought it's own delights, everything we ate was fantastic.
