I am so glad that we managed to have a chat to you with regards to this. As explained, Peter regretfully had to leave the restaurant floor for a short while that evening to assist with another matter. He was ever so sorry to hear about the issue you had, and that he was not around during your dinner to...

Very nice rooms , open to the elements ,wonderful views of coast line and beach. Dinner was excellent as was breakfast, all cooked to order. Peaceful and so relaxing especially after we had just flown in from Canada. The...

I'm glad that you had a wonderful time with us. Some rest and relaxation must have been just what the doctor ordered after such a long flight, I imagine. I'll pass on your kind comments to the team, thank you. See you again soon (hopefully for longer next time, I agree!)

Spent 3 nights here celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary and must say a great choice by my wife. Right on the coast, our lovely room looking out on to the Atlantic. The staff are brilliant, so helpful and friendly. Food superb, particularly the breakfast where you could order what you like and as much as you like. A great touch...

Came here on our honeymoon to unwind for a few days and it was perfect, the laid back friendly atmosphere with no kids was ideal!

My husband just got back from a 4 day stay at the amazing and beautiful Scarlet. We have 2 young children so this was a rare getaway for us without the children.

Wonderful to hear that you switched off from work, and really enjoyed your special time away from the children (I absolutely agree that the hot tubs are really romantic in the evening, especially with a glass of fizz). Thank you for your review (I'll pass your comments on to the team, of course), and also for kindly recommending us to...

Loved it here, perched up on top of the cliff with the sea roaring away below. Our room looked out onto the bay with huge sliding glass doors that with any hint of sunshine made the room feel like it was in the Mediterranean. Truly beautiful to watch the sunset from the bed and just relax. The pool and spa...

Thank you ever so much for your review. Our design really does make the most of the dramatic views and sunsets, doesn't it?

We put the Scarlet as the first destination of our 2 week holiday in Cornwall. After 6 months without a proper holiday, working in London, this was exactly what we needed. From the minute we arrived, the surroundings, facilities, the room and most of all the staff made it an unforgettable experience. Nothing feels like too much to ask. The...

Gorgeous photos from your balcony... who wouldn't feel fabulous waking to a view like that?! Lovely to hear that you enjoyed what, by the sound of it, was a much needed break away. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time down here and left looking forward to returning in the future.

We actually got engaged at this hotel but the stay would have been amazing regardless!!

This hotel is amazing. My partner and I returned yesterday from the most fabulous and relaxing long weekend. The staff couldn't have been more helpful yet the service was discreet and in no way overbearing.
