Built by Edward VII for his mistress Lillie Langtry in the 19th Century, now a small luxury hotel offering individual bedrooms with luxury facilities.


Langtry Manor Hotel was originally built as a lovenest by Edward VII for his mistress Lillie Langtry. Today the hotel has been transformed into a small luxury hotel.

Accommodation is available in a variety of rooms types from master bedrooms to feature heritage bedrooms which have double ended Jacuzzi's and period beds. Guest rooms are also located in Langtry Lodge, former home of Lord Derby, just 50 yards from the Manor.

The Lonely Planet Guide notes, “by far the best place to stay in Bournemouth, and the Guardian newspaper has bestowed the title of “Best Hotel in Bournemouth” on the Langtry Manor. Over the past three years the hotel has also twice won the “Best Small and Medium Hotel”, and been highly commended 3 times in the “Best Customer Service” category at the Bournemouth Tourism Awards.

A twenty minute stroll brings one into the heart of Bournemouth and the cosmopolitan town centre to experience world class shopping, museums and galleries, theatres and theme parks or dynamic nightclubs and wine bars for the more energetic. There is also the Bournemouth International Centre, making Langtry Manor the ideal venue for hotel conferences or a business respite and regenerative evening haven.

A five minute walk from the hotel brings you directly to the Bournemouth Coastline and Blue Flag award winning beaches running from Bournemouth through to Poole.

History to the present day

In 1877 the future King Edward VII bought a plot of land in a secluded area of the East Cliff in Bournemouth for the woman he loved, Lillie Langtry.

The Howard Family own, run and maintain the hotel in the style befitting a King.  It was purchased by Pamela Howard in 1977, exactly one hundred years after it was built and has been lovingly restored to its former glory. Tara Howard, the Managing Director extends a warm welcome for you to visit the Langtry Manor for a cup of tea or just a look around to see and feel the wonderful ambience of this Historic building on the East Cliff of Bournemouth.

Food and Drinks

Langtry's Restaurant stands out as something a little special due to its award winning food presented in an historic regal setting. For those who are passionate about gourmet dining, prepare to embark on an exciting experience designed to tantalize all your senses. Langtry's - previously owned and occupied by King Edward VII and his mistress Lillie Langtry - is the only fine dining establishment located within an authentic royal manor.
