Our first visit and what a fantastic couple of days, with the added benefit of late March sun, there was nothing to do on the second day but stay at the hotel and enjoy the spa and watching the over ambitious trying to get in the 8 degree outdoor natural pool. We were assured it does get warmer. We loved the efficient, friendly, but not over zealous (The downfall of many high end hotel) staff. We loved the "no reception" and the "take a seat anywhere and someone will be with you" ethos.
I run a music website and I was struck by the choice of music. The choices were well considered for each time of day and were perfectly pitched for the ambiance. This did create a dilemma for the staff on the second night. We sat down for dinner with some lovely smokey jazz creating a buzz and we had already commented on how great it was that the music was at a listenable level, not killing conversation and not an annoying tick tick in the back ground.
There was an awkward incident where a diner asked for the music to be turned right down to a level so low that it may as well have been turned off but it was dealt with well by the staff on duty and as the diner had a medical condition which was made worse by loud music I really don't know what else they could do but it did completely change the ambiance and buzz around the restaurant for our special occasion.
The food was fantastic with breakfast being lovely both days, Our dinner was great but was slightly less hot than desirable but this is a minor criticism.
We spent the two days walking around with blissful grins on our faces and whole experience was so fantastic that we will be back very, very,very soon. In fact I am finding it impossible to actually put into words how good The Scarlet is !
