Fodor's Review

Justifiably celebrated after its initial restoration in the 1990s, this 1940s-era luxury hotel overlooks a spectacular secluded beach on Bacolet Bay just outside Scarborough. Though long neglected, it was brought back to life by Austrian Karl Pilstl and his wife but, sadly, has succumbed to serious maintenance issues and has descended into what can be described (at best) as shabby chic. In its heyday Rita Hayworth and Robert Mitchum stayed here. Rooms have teak floors and glass-partitioned bathrooms (with curtains). Rooms in the so-called new wing have sunken sitting areas. Those who appreciate history may be able to overlook the many shortcomings. The staff are still wonderfully attentive despite the decaying infrastructure.
