Going all the way to Cornwall and not staying at the Scarlet Hotel which we’ve read about so many times would be unforgivable
Therefore we decided to spend one more day in Cornwall and try it. The hotel is located at Magwan Port (which is famous as a surfing beach) and has won many awards as an Eco hotel with great facilities and design. We liked the view of the beach from our room, enjoyed our time in the spa, were impressed by the quality of the food (at prices that would not suggest a lower level of cooking), but felt that something was missing. The hotel looked a bit old, the entrance through the parking was not what you’d expect, the bathroom had no real character. Maybe after the Salt House we were spoiled! On our way to Scarlet, we did stop at another town that friends have recommended, Fowey. It’s a nice little town, most popular when the Annual Royal Regatta takes place on the 3rd weekend of August.
