Hotel Review

Just below Bedruthan Steps and owned by the same three sisters, the Scarlet (“a green hotel overlooking the blue Atlantic”) is a fabulous addition to the Cornish hotel scene: commitedly eco-friendly yet also sybaritic, with the same arresting views of Mawgan Porth beach. The superbly designed building reflects its surroundings with infinity pools that seem to stretch to the sea and flat roofs covered in sea thrift and rocks to resemble cliff tops. There’s an Ayurvedic spa and excellent food from chef Tom Hunter. Truly relaxing.

An Inspector Calls At...The Scarlet Hotel

What The Scarlet needs is some real competition on this gilded stretch of North Cornwall coast. It also needs a top-notch hotel manager who might notice that the girl with the stud in her tongue can't possibly be left all on her own to take drinks orders in the bar and then fetch and carry them single-handed. She's doing her best...

Why Scarlet? 'We just liked the name,' says the owner of this exceptional new hotel. 'The Scarlet: a green hotel overlooking the blue Atlantic'.
