  • This hotel has a unique history. The building dates from 1877 and was built by the future Edward VII for his mistress, Lillie Langtry. Lillie Langtry was a British music hall singer and stage actor famous for her many stage productions. Although the Prince was married to Princess Alexandra and had six children, he was a well-known philanderer. He became infatuated with Langtry and she became his semi-official mistress. The affair lasted from late 1877 to June 1880 and the Prince of Wales had the Red House (now Langtry Hotel) built as a private retreat for the couple. Residents have seen the grey form of Lillie Langtry’s ghost on many occasions as she promenades in style throughout her previous home.
