Rooms & Rates

Oscar Wilde once said “I would rather have discovered Lillie Langtry than America”, and King Edward VII clearly agreed. In 1877, he built Langtry Manor for his mistress as a ‘love nest’, and today it’s the perfect place for a seaside getaway.

Bournemouth is probably best known for its beaches, and the promenade is just 15 minutes’ walk away. Check out the pier or the Oceanarium, or just buy some fish and chips and take a stroll. Further afield, there’s the Bournemouth Coast Path to explore, and the New Forest National Park, with its walks and activities, is just 20 minutes’ drive away.

The restaurant (Langtry’s) serves well put-together dishes such as pulled duck terrine, Lancashire hot pot and coq au vin, in a Baronial-style dining room featuring stained-glass windows, tapestries and a large fireplace. On Saturday nights, there’s a 6-course dinner party, served by staff in Edwardian costume.

Because the hotel was once a private house, rooms -- all named after Lillie Langtry’s friends, admirers and favourite acting roles -- are all different sizes, and some bathrooms are a little small. WiFi is free, though, and the interiors are beautiful -- the best room is the King Edward VII Suite, reputedly the room he shared with Lillie. There’s a double-ended Jacuzzi, a TV above the bath and a Jacobean 4-poster bed. The rooms on the top floor are accessed via steep stairs, so may not be suitable for guests with restricted mobility. 

From the press:

  • "The King’s Suite is a real jaw-dropper: a monumental, climb-up-to-get-in four-poster bed; the fireplace is big enough to feature a couple of chairs" -- Lonely Planet
