We had a wonderful time at the Scarlet. I took my partner there as part of her 21st birthday present, and we were greeted with a friendly and personal introduction by staff as well as a tour of the hotel and all its great facilities. We were then directed to our rooms, which we were mesmerised by. Underfloor heating, the...

We just spent four nights in the Scarlet, and it really is a very relaxing place. Good choice of rooms and great service and food. Perhaps not necessary to spend the extra on the largest rooms, as pretty much all of the rooms looked great. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and created a very relaxed atmosphere. We had...

This was our second trip to the Scarlet hotel and we loved it just as much as the last time. The detail to interior design is GORGEOUS, the art on the walls is lovely, and the views out the windows (of coast and landscaping within the grounds) are second to none. We had a "just right" room with a stunning...

Was given a day's spa treatment (spring day spa offer) with two other friends/family as a gift a few weeks ago. Had a perfect day, staff were right kind of attentive (present and available, but not overly so), lunch was healthy and of a grand size (and very tasty), spa facilities were lovely (even used the outdoor pool) and spa...

We have stayed at the Scarlet 3 times in all, the previous stay being Christmas 2016 🍐and then again in February 2017. The rooms are great with plenty of room, good facilities and very comfortable beds, and the views from all the rooms are stunning. The staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. Best of all is probably...

Thank you so much! There is a sense of relaxation and calm from the moment you cross the threshold and many comfortable yet luxurious lounges to feel at home in and be looked after by our wonderful team. I am so pleased you have enjoyed all your stays with us and look forward to visit number 4. Kind regards Leanne...

What can I say...... I can not find anything negative about my stay at the Scarlet. We stayed for a weekend from A Friday - checking out on Sunday. From the moment we arrived the service was amazing, could not fault the staff in any way. The views from the hotel were amazing, although the weather was extremely windy and...

Thank you. This really brought a smile to my face on another windy and rainy day! The weather here certainly is unpredictable – at any time of year but we are blessed with a view that is just as beautiful when wild and spectacular as it is when sunny and calm. I am so glad you had such a lovely...

We have recently returned from our second weekend at the Scarlet in the last six months and must say that this visit was just as memorable as the first. The views from the room and all the public areas are breathtaking, it is so easy to just sit and watch the sea while sipping a glass of wine that relaxation...

Wow, thank you so much for such a lovely review. It is so easy here to take time out of life to lose hours, just staring out of the window and relaxing. Doing so with a glass of wine is certainly a bonus! I hope visit number 3 is not too far away! Kind regards Leanne Barlow House Manager

Recently returned from a great few days in a lovely room - what could have been one of the best hotel stays ever - but - don't you just hate it when some places seem to suffer from location apathy ? Our room had a sea view , was spacious , great balcony - but the magnifying mirror was falling...

Thank you for sharing your Scarlet experience. I am delighted that we overall impressed, but saddened to read that you feel we have apathy due to our amazing location, whilst we are incredibly proud of this, we also realise that it is our attention to detail that sets us apart and work hard to deliver an exceptional experience. Indeed, every...

It's not the most attractive building from the outside, but once inside (ignoring the fact that the 'infinity pool' outside reception, which looks so good in photos, was drained due to leakage - hopefully they'll resolve that soon) all looks very cool and boutique style, with interesting artwork and expensive furnishings. They don't do anything as traditional as an actual...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Scarlet, the food was probably the best we have had at any of the places we stayed on our UK tour, the staff were quite good.
