Exactly what we needed for a couple of days of relaxation, everything was better than we could even have hoped for. The room with a view of the sea, beautiful food, the hot tub looking over the bay, the spa treatment and most of all the staff who were always friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I couldn't recommend...

Three nights just before Easter and The Scarlet exceeded expectations in many ways. Firstly a note of thanks to all the staff - attentiveness and simply excellent attitude makes such a difference to the guests. Normally we hedge our bets and book only dinner on arrival and expect to eat out on other days. No need to worry at all...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review and feedback. Wonderful to read that you made the most of the local walks and found your way over to Porthcothan, which is one of my favourite coves in the area. For your return visit we do have lots of information at reception about some other lovely strolls,...

This was our second visit to the scarlet, our first was just 6 months ago following a special anniversary celebration. We resolved to return and my hubby surprised me by booking the scarlet as a Christmas gift. We were pleased to find that our second visit was just as relaxing, luxurious and indulgent with the added bonus of superb weather...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and also for sharing the fab photo of your walk... the scenery really is breathtaking.

Thank you for your review, and it's wonderful to read that you had such a relaxed and romantic break with us from the moment you arrived.

An adults only hotel happy to accommodate well behaved dogs and a real treat in terms of rooms, facilities and spa treatments. Although towards the top end of room rates, we had an excellent stay and will save up to visit again.

We had a day spa rather than stay in the hotel. We had the couples package. I was a little worried the hotel would be a little pretentious but i couldn't me more wrong. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Nothing is rushed and there is an amazing discretion around every action and word. You will feel relaxed here!...

You've probably guessed that I like this place. For someone of my vintage it's almost impossible to believe that such a place could exist by the English seaside. Not cheap, but superb in almost every way. Staff look a little stretched at times (particularly in the bar) but are cheerful and attentive at all times. They don't take kids but...
