Dramatic, passionate and decadent are the terms that spring to mind when visiting The Scarlet Hotel. Housed in a 1924 Art Deco building on a row of 1868 early shop houses on the historic Erskine Road, the hotel offers five themed suites with names like Splendour and Lavish, as well as 26 Executive and 24 Premium rooms and 15 Deluxe and 24 Standard rooms. In-room features include one-for-one evening cocktails, personal bars with gourmet selections and a pillow menu.
