Scarlet Hotel, Mawgan Porth

Scarlet Hotel
Eco and quirky? Arty and quirky? Design led and quirky?
The sunsets here are said to be amazing. The building looks out of this world. Does it deserve to be on QWerkyness.com? Yes we think so! The d├ęcor is interesting with sculptures and big statement pieces of art all over the hotel. The reed spa tub overlooking the amazing coastal views and the amazing food make this venue a must stay and must eat place for Mrs Q.

Profile Description

Tucked down a residential road in Mawgan Porth lies the Scarlet Hotel which is of Cornwall’s much anticipated new “luxury eco-hotel”. Curved wooden walls and the sea-thrift-planted roof camouflage it against the cliff. Tasteful and playful art with a Cornish coastal theme brings to life open spaces. Furniture is retro 50s with a Scandinavian feel. Ergonomic and sleek, it’s like walking into an art gallery.

All 37 rooms have a sea view and their own outdoor space in the form of a terrace or walled garden. There is always a surprise or two not too far away. How about the secret room at the top of a spiral staircase which has a big window looking out to the sea and an enormous beanbag?

The menu has been created by Michelin star-winning local Ben Tunnicliffe. The food is a long way from the normal hotel food. The food is prepared with fresh, mainly locally sourced ingredients, served in generous portions.

The star spa feature has to be the two log-fired seaweed baths/hot tubs perched outside on the edge of the cliff, for total immerse-yourself-in-the-scenery serenity. Then there’s the natural reed-filtered pool, for a one-off wild swimming experience. Inside, Ayurvedic treatments are based on a consultation to determine your dosha or body type.

Does the Scarlet Hotel live up to its aim to be “luxurious without costing the planet”? It certainly takes its pledge seriously. With measures such as grey- and rain-water harvesting, a biomass boiler, innovative insulation and ventilation and a commitment to using recyclable materials, its CO2 output is currently calculated as “73% less than that of a notional traditional building of the same size, design and geometry”.
