This was our first time at the Scarlet and our first time at a spa and it was incredible..everything about the place is excellent couldn't fault anything. The staff can't do enough for you and the food is to die for. The spa treatments we had were great we felt so relaxed on the day we left we didn't want...

I'm so glad that you chose the Scarlet for your first spa experience and glad that you had such a wonderful time and left feeling so relaxed and already thinking about your next visit. It was terribly kind of you to take the time to tell others about your experience with us, so thank you. I hope that you'll be...

My husband and I are just back from our 3rd visit to the Scarlet. With busy lives in London it is hard to switch off and the Scarlet seems to be our sanctuary where all stresses melt away. The fresh air, locally sourced produce, and a commitment to customer service that can only be described as above on beyond, the...

I'm glad that you took time out in the spa during this visit and tried the journey, and imagine that it will become a regular compliment to your future time with us (given your hectic London life, I am sure it is very much deserved!) I'm especially happy that the violet potatoes were a hit with you. A wonderful comfort...

We love the Scarlet Hotel, you really do feel away from the rest of the wold and nothing better then sitting up on the decked area sipping a cold glass of wine while looking over the sea..... It really is paradise in Cornwall and could not recommend it enough.

I've really noticed the last few days that the cliffs are starting to bloom, and the gorse is really blooming and smelling fabulous - a sure sign that spring is on its way, bringing along with it those precious sunny days on the decking, watching the sea and the sunsets with a glass of wine. Thank you ever so much...

Yet another fantastic weekend, despite the howling wind. We returned to the usual friendly reception where we were instantly offered tea and coffee with homemade biscuits. The rooms are spotless and the views spectacular. Each meal we had in the restaurant brought it's own delights, everything we ate was fantastic. The staff are great and nothing is too much trouble....

It's wonderful to read that you had yet another fantastic time with us. The weather was quite dramatic last weekend, I agree - perfect for curling up in front of the open fire with a fluffy blanket, pot of tea and a good book for some guilt-free relaxation. Thanks for taking the time to recommend us yet again - I'll...

We stayed in summer 2013 and I absolutely loved this hotel. It is a little expensive but it is a fabulous experience and feels special. We booked a spa treatment, used the hot tubs and ate in the restaurant so had a full experience and you needn't venture far to enjoy yourself. It has a very relaxed feel to it...

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time with us, and left feeling well looked after, by the sound of things! I agree that the boat trips around the area are fab...

So relaxing and perfect in every way. A particular highlight was the spa, where we had a couples' massage lesson, which was expertly delivered and gave us a skill to take away! I also had a surf lesson with Nick who is based just next door in the surf shack and this was also fab (despite being mid Dec!)

So glad that you loved your time here, and it's great to read that you both took away such a valuable and relaxing skill (a massage lesson really is the gift that keeps on giving in my mind). I'm sure your surf lesson was quite the opposite in the relaxing stakes and much more exhilarating, but equally fun. I'll pass...

I've looked at The Scarlet for a long time and finally went there in December and it lived upto and surpassed all my expectations. Everything about this place runs so smoothly and I've never felt more relaxed or welcome in a hotel. The best hotel I've ever stayed in by far. Thank you very much to all the staff.

Stayed at the Scarlet for a couple of days while we visited the Padstow Christmas Festival. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, rooms great and hot tub lovely and warm even though it was cold and dark. Champagne in the hot tub can't beat it. Recommended!!!
