My wife and I booked three nights here based on the reviews that we had read through this site. We were NOT disappointed. Our room was very large (SPACIOUS room) with gorgeous views over the large beach and out to sea. It also had a large balcony. It was perfectly quiet at night and the hotel was comfortably busy and...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind and detailed review. I’m really glad that you both enjoyed yourselves so much and left us feeling, by the sounds of it, very relaxed. I will certainly pass your compliments on to Amanda for you. I agree that she’s absolutely fabulous and the guided meditations are wonderful....

We stayed at the Scarlett hotel for 2 nights in June and I have to say it by far exceeded any expectations we could have had. Although the room in size was not the biggest we have stayed in it certainly was the most impressive when it comes to it's character and uniqueness, it's hard to compare it to anywhere...

We just came back from a lovely long weekend at the Scarlet. I've been twice before and I think I might have tried every mode of 'spa-ing' at the Scarlet - I've been there alone for a week, with a female friend for a 2-night stay, and now with my fiancé for a long weekend break. And each time the...

Me and our wife visited this stunning location for our first wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect from the rooms to the service. We will definitely be returning to this fantastic hotel. All the staff were a credit to the owners and not a stone has been left unturned in making this such a special location.

We booked one of the Indulgent Rooms. Being their most expensive offering, and having heard about the amazing views, we were expecting something very special. Instead we were very disappointed. The room was quite large, but was very low down meaning that our view was all but non existent. We were looking out over what seemed to be the rooftop...

Thank you ever so much for your review. With regards to your room, I am so sorry that you left feeling disappointed, and that your room view and layout was not to your personal taste. We are quite unusual here in the fact that our rooms are all really quite different and varied in order to try and meet as...

Not many places offer a dog to walk on the beach. It's the small stuff that sets hotels apart, the quick chat with a staff member, a bit of kindness above the norm or something different about the design. The Scarlett and it's team do this very well. Take it as read that the architecture and design are very well...

I'm delighted to hear that we really looked after you and that you left us feeling better, happier and much more relaxed than when you arrived... that's certainly our aim here.

I recently spent a night in this gorgeous place with my daughter and was reluctant to leave. From the moment we arrived, we encountered wonderful, friendly staff willing to do whatever it took to make our stay comfortable. And enjoyable. The locTion, overlooking the beach, is simply stunning and the hotel makes full use of this by cleverly positioning the...

The Scarlet is almost top class but there was something just lacking. We stayed for one night on a bit of an escape for us prior to a new arrival to the family and the Scarlet came recommended (partly due to the no kids policy!). The hotel has lots of plus points. It is in a beautiful location with all...

What an absolutely wonderful way to end a week here in Cornwall, and to spend some valuable time relaxing together and rediscovering each other (something that is so important for friends or couples, but seldom done).
