This was my second visit to the Scarlet hotel and it was just as wonderful the second time! I visited on the 23rd of feb for a winter spa day on a very cold windy day. The outdoor hot tub was lovely despite the cold and the view over the beach is second to none, in indoor pool is also...

Thank you for sharing your experience here, and I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful and heavenly experience. It's always great to hear that people have enjoyed the scones so much as, being Cornish, the cream tea and afternoon tea are things that we are really proud of (we even make them to suit a range of dietary...

I stayed at The Scarlet for a 3 nights break with my husband in February. We were so lucky with the weather as the sun was shining the whole time and we were able to benefit from the fabulous setting of this hotel. From the moment we arrived the one thing that stood out the most was the wonderful and...

We stayed here recently for a two night break and found the hotel to be good but with some quirky issues which a bit like marmite you either love or hate! On arrival their is no reception - a number of hotels got away with them a few years ago to make it more personal - the problem is without...

Thank you for taking the time to write this informative review your time with us, I am sorry that your initial welcome with us didn't feel special and was not as we intended it to be.

My wife and I spent a relaxing day here on February 17th and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked a £100 each spa day, which included a Hot bath tub and drink overlooking the beach, a massage and afternoon tea consisting of a few sandwiches, scone with jam and cream (excellent quality) and too many deserts to eat. More of the...

I think spring is just around the corner, the hot tub is a fantastic experience when the sun shining and you can really take in the view. Afternoon tea is a real treat and works so well when you are indulging in a day of R and R. We will keep you updated with all our spa day offers and...

Mawgan Porth is one of our favourite places in Cornwall (and probably the world) and we normally stay as a family in a house next to the Scarlet and have occasional dinners there. This time we went without the children for a 2 night stay at the hotel. It felt like a lot longer than that even after a horrendous...

We enjoyed a 3 night stay here over the valentines weekend. We felt so relaxed and very spoilt the whole time we were there.

Visited The Scarlet yesterday with partner with the "Wind Down and Warm Up" package. The hotel's decor was amazing and you instantly feel like you are somewhere special.
