“We can't believe The Scarlet is ONLY a 4 star!”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed at The Scarlet when they first opened as 'guinea Pigs' and couldn't fault it. We loved it so much that we were very keen to go back; circumstances conspired that it was a much longer gap before we were able to but it was worth the wait. The Scarlet did not disappoint.
We could only manage one night but felt so refreshed with The Scarlet working it's magic once again.
The hotel is so contemporary and run very professionally but in a relaxed manner. We really cannot fault a thing and would highly recommend it. We will certainly be returning.

Room Tip: They are all excellent - you will not be disappointed whatever your choice. To be honest the only d...

We went to lunch there and from the moment you walk in it is an oasis of calm. Service rarely experienced these days. Nothing too much trouble. One of our party is a small eater but there was no problem with her having something of the bar menu alongside our regular lunch choices. Food is varied and fish brilliantly cooked.
Take a tour of the hotel, architecture and design of the finest detail and everywhere a sight of the blissful ocean and coast. This on a day when the mist rolled in, but it did nothing to detract.

Room Tip: The pods are the best but they are all so well planned for peace and enjoyment.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Scarlet Hotel & restaurant.

We hope to see you again soon, the view is stunning when there is not sea mist, although the mist can be quite dramatic.

We had a one night stay and hot tub as a Xmas present. One of the best presents we have ever been given. The whole experience was wonderful. Relaxed ambience and excellent service and food mad the whole day very special. We plan to return.

So relaxed and welcoming. Rooms clean and comfortable. The views are amazing Staff welcoming and pleasant. Most quite chatty amd happy to engage in conversation which is nice. Food....just amazing! (although some of the portions were a little on the small side) Spent a very lazy weekend just doing not a lot and enjoing the ambience.Take note of the bar prices!

Room Tip: Any room is good

One of the best all-round hotels we have stayed in for a long time and we have stayed in some good ones.
Stayed in an indulgent for 3 nights , room 6, fantastic views ( impossible to read your book because you keep looking out over the balcony from your bed towards the cliffs and sea )
As we were leaving we asked to see a couple of other rooms to see how they compared, they are all fantastic.
The food . Breakfast is a three course delight, toast and fresh jams to start with fresh Cornish apple juice, followed by fresh fruit , poached pears etc etc and then a full English with some of the best sausages and bacon I have tasted. ( this was my preferred route , there are other options of course )
Dinner was fantastic , spot on portions and a super wine list. The big boys could learn a trick or two here, seriously.
What else, oh yes the Spa , we both loved it, very relaxed and professional .
Now the best bit , the STAFF, they are G R E A T, nothing is too much trouble. We really liked talking to them over dinner and at the bar. You have picked and trained well.
The reason for the title review is simple, we must all be mad reviewing this establishment, we'll never get in again.
This was our first visit and have decided to make this our twice a year long weekend retreat.
Thank you so much, kind regards Robert and Cindy.

Room Tip: the rooms are all good. Indulge if you want but there is no need.

Thank you for taking the time to post this really wonderful review, you may think you are mad, but I am really greatful. Whilst we do get really busy I can assure you we still have space. You do need to plan at bit further ahead though if you want to bag room 6 (one of the best!).

We look forward to seeing you both again soon and really hope you do make it a regular thing, we have a few guests that do and it only takes a couple of stay before they start to feel like part of the family.

With my best wishes
