As someone that stays in a lot of hotels, for business and pleasure, I have to say I rarely come across one as well designed as the Scarlet. Everything fits together well, and the views from so many parts of the hotel are spectacular.
Service is, as you would expect from a hotel of this standard and pricing, absolutely perfect, and all staff go out of their way to assist you.
For a few small negatives, I thought our room wasnt perfect. I liked the open layout with the sink area more part of the bedroom than the bathroom, also allowing for some great views, but the water piping was quite noisy and whilst this didnt affect us in the evening it did spoint the sereness somewhat. Also we were on the first floor next to the stairs, and the sound insulation wasnt great both for when people went up and down the staircase, but also when people in the room above us walked around, the floorboards creaked quite a bit.
However, let this not detract from the overall experience. The location is wonderful, you can get to Newquay and Padstow (with their wildly different offerings) within 25 mins drive, you are 5 mins drive from Jamie Olivers restaurant, and a stunning 2 min walk from a beautiful beach.
The restaurant is really top class, I did enjoy our dinner there, but even more I thought the daily options for breakfast were great. Not an expansive menu, but really great quality and a willingness to be flexible from the kitchen to adapt to dietary restrictions meant there was a great informality to the experience.
We booked last minute and I think were really lucky to get a room. On a sunny weekend this hotel is really unbeatable. Finally the no kids policy is great, I believe they have another hotel under the same ownership nearby that is more family friendly, so whichever way you can enjoy the experience, but keeping this one adult only was a really great choice in my opinion.
All in all a great hotel.
