“Expect the best”
Reviewed 30 March 2012 via mobile

Can't say enough wonderful things about this terrific hotel. From first class service in every department, to stunning views from every room, and food to die for. Perhaps it was the way that you simply relax and let the whole place simply remove all of your stresses that was the best part of all. Whatever you desire in a top hotel, the Scarlet will provide. We will return!

This is one of my favorite hotels and locations in the UK. It was my second visit as I stayed last March also. The views and location is spectacular, the rooms are amazing, the staff are wonderful and the food is equally good. Nothing is too much trouble at this idyllic hotel. The outdoor seaweed tub followed by a dip in the outdoor pool is a must, the costal walks have amazing views and the sunsets are just beautiful. Just a short drive away you have jamies 15 and Rick Steins Cornish arms so once you have sampled the lovely scarlet dishes you can move on to the next! I also had a facial during my stay which was amazing and the indoor pool and steam room are really relaxing. I can't say a bad thing about the Scarlet the only problem is you won't want to leave!

This is a truly wonderful hotel. The service is excellent without being formal ( a really difficult skill)- nothing is a problem or too much trouble, the food is exceptional, the views are unbelievable,the spa's great.... i could go on and on. We stay in loads of UK hotels through a mixture of work and play, 1-2 a month, and I've not felt the need to tell anyone who'll listen how great one is before. This is really great. Really really great. In fact we booked a return visit before we'd left, it's so good. It's relatively pricey as you'd expect but exceptionally good value. Believe the hype!

What a wonderful hotel! Set above a stunning beach and with outdoor hot tubs, pool and terraces perched on the cliff with great views, etc, this was the ideal setting for a relaxed weekend break. The staff have perfected the art of being relaxed and helpful and the accommodation was more like a little house than a hotel room. The food was also excellent - dinner and breakfast - we couldn't fault our stay and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the beautiful beach

Stayed for a 2 night break that put my head back on the right way!
Sometimes you just need to stop life and get back on the right tracks, and Scarlett's is the very place to do this.
A 3hour spa journey helped the process along wonderfully.
Even though I was unable to eat (for medical reasons) Scarlets was the perfect place to relax and refresh mind body and soul...a real life saver!
The staff were attentive yet discreet, the ambience was perfect, all designed to make you feel comfortable, the artwork breath taking, I got straight on the Internet to basma ash worth -one of the artists whose work was displayed, to order a piece, I was moved so much!
The spa journey was amazing and afterwards the cocoon was soooo precious....leant wait for my next visit!

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing, I could only afford a just right room...and it was tat!

A really lovely night away. The Scarlet's setting is stunning, the spa is gorgeous, our room was very nice - especially the balcony overlooking the sea. The staff were very friendly and particularly welcoming to our dog. The breakfast was excellent - particularly the delicious granola. It was also very good value for money overall.
