Food was amazing, location was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful, and you never feel rushed. The room we had (basic room) was very small though, so given the choice I'd go for a larger room. We also took the hot tub experience, which was very well worth it.

If your holiday revolves around action, adventure, games and what I would call the typical stereotype holiday, forget The Scarlet Hotel. This is an Adults only, chill, relax, pamper yourself, empty your brain of stress luscious Hotel. ALL the staff are absolutely first class. They dress in a relaxed manner, putting the client at ease immediately. Nothing, and I mean...

We stayed here for the weekend at the beginning of March. It's beautifully positioned overlooking the bay of Mawgan Porth. The hotel is really nicely designed with light, airy rooms and great view over reflecting pools to the bay and beach. We were welcomed warmly and taken on a tour round the hotel - complimentary tea and coffee at all...

Wow! Everything about The Scarlet is outstanding: the location, the view from every window, the beautiful building, the quirky furnishings, the art work, the gorgeous food, the fabulous tented spa, the gardens, the wonderful Tregothnan teas, the blissful toiletries and generous bathtubs and showers, but what makes The Scarlet really stand apart is the people - the staff ensure they...

I love this place!! It's an experience throughout the whole occasion and everywhere you look there is a special touch to make the difference. Highly recommend the ginger chili squid as a starter, great favors and the beef loin as a main. It's perhaps a touch on the rich side and would be better without the small portion of shredded...

Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry that you couldn’t come and stay with Rosie. We do have to take into account the size of breed when taking bookings for our dog friendly rooms, in order to ensure the comfort of both guest and dog, and it is a question that we do ask when going through the...

The Scarlet had been on our radar for a year or so and we had a need to stop in the area so decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The immediate reaction, especially after a long journey, is that you need to check in at a desk and get to the room; in this instance the...

Welshtraveller01, below, gives a very fair critique. In February, in the rain and wind, the atmosphere is stark. This includes the restaurant which is furnished cafe style. We were a 60/75 years four. Everyone else was a young pair; result, all overcome and silent. The staff are charming and we were taken on a full tour to be briefed on...

Thank you for your review, and I agree that we have certainly had some rather dramatic wet and windy weather this February down here in Cornwall. Perfect for sitting by the fire and storm watching with a glass of wine, but still it's nice to see that the flowers are beginning to bud and spring is just around the corner!...
