We stayed for 2 nights as a couple in June. Our room was beautifully designed and even had a sea view mini lounge upstairs which was lovely. The hotel felt indulgent, tranquil and for grown ups - perfect. The staff were excellent and focused on delivering a very special experience. All the staff were knowledgeable, engaging and intelligent which really...

It's wonderful to hear that we delivered such a special experience... that's exactly what each and every one of the team set out to do, so I'll really enjoy passing your comments on to them, and your feedback to the management team thank...

Superb place, great service and just an amazing place to relax and watch the sea. Great food and drink and just dead chilled. Great walk to Watergate Bay thoroughly recommended. Will definitely return again. Well worth the cost.

Thanks for your review - great to read that you found us 'dead chilled' and hope that you left us feeling the same! I agree the walk to Watergate is wonderful. I do it almost every day and the changes in scenery throughout the seasons is breathtaking - never gets boring. I'm sure that you don't need an excuse to...

I had a wonderful stay at The Scarlet hotel. I booked the spa journey 3 night package, which included breakfast every morning, dinner on 2 evenings and a 4 hour tailored spa treatment. The staff were so helpful and friendly - the attention to detail is incredibly well thought out and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The spa...

Thank you for taking the time to post such a kind review and such gorgeous photos, Sarah. I imagine you left us feel like a whole new person after the three night spa package - absolute bliss, and the perfect getaway for someone to just spend some time alone, away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life!...

I took my boyfriend here for a surprise for his birthday, and we were taken back by how beautiful the place is. We were certainly not disappointed. The room, hot tub and our evening meal was amazing, and our lovely waitress Beth Really made us feel at ease. Thank you for a lovely stay. Kelly&tom

Visiting again - seems Cornwall has a magic touch and The Scarlet has captured some of it in the restful venue and surroundings. Great views from room windows, not as good as last time, but decent (on lower floor). Hotel dog is still available for a trot out if you want. Only complaint was from the lady on the bed...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your time with us again (and managed to take Jasper out while you were here... slightly warmer than December this time, too).

We have just returned from our third trip to the Scarlet Hotel and I really think it gets better every time. The hotel is undeniably stunning in location but, over and above the amazing views, the staff make this a wonderful place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble and the whole ambience is one of a relaxed, chilled out...

I'm so glad that you had a relaxing time (especially given the fact that you were celebrating - congratulations!) but was disappointed, however, to read that our restaurant service was apparently not to up to its usual standard. We will be looking into this in greater detail and will ensure that the team learns from it, accordingly. I would really...
