The only place I feel I can start with the Scarlet is the views, breathtaking. I found myself really appreciating the design of a hotel for the first time when you realise every area of the hotel has its own fantastic backdrop view. The Scarlet for us was the setting for our engagement and the staff did everything to make...

Love this place...! Despite saying that "we'll try somewhere different next year" each time we return to The Scarlet. This was our third visit and we had the usual superb service, relaxed atmosphere, great food and wine and amazing weather. We left refreshed, relaxed and happy. Looking forward to next year...!

This hotel is perfect. The location is stunning. The clean beach and waters are brilliant for walks, activities and just admiring their beauty. The hotel is modern and contemporary but not a whitebox hotel where you can't feel at home. The scarlet mixes luxury and comfort and first class service. The staff really can't do enough for you. They are...

Relaxing, laid back, beautiful and indulgent. The Scarlet is a perfect couples escape. Stayed for two nights and going back for three later in the year. The outdoor sauna is incredible, and the plunge pool exhilarating. The indoor pool is just lovely and often empty for a swim on your own. Lovely spa facilities - had a facial and two...

I live in Cornwall and thought I had heard a lot of good things about the scarlet so chose to stay here for my Wife's birthday treat. We did have a good time but that was more due to our desire to do just that than anything else. It is expensive here, we knew that when booking so were not...

We spent 3 days at The Scarlet and it was definitely one of the best experiences of our lives and the best hotel we stayed in the UK! The location is amazing; on the cliff overlooking the bay and our room at the garden level had amazing uninterrupted views of the sea. You literally forget the world! The customer service...

Another fantastic stay. The service and attention to detail is outstanding. It was my birthday and everyone in the hotel knew and congratulated me.
