Property Summary


SPACIOUS 1 BEDROOM TOP FLOOR APARTMENT IN CENTRAL LOCATION WITH EASY ACCESS TO TOWN & BEACH - IDEAL HOLIDAY INCOME PROPERTY

History - The central section of the Royal Victoria Apartments was built as a Great House by John Chapman, a stone merchant, in 1721 and was known as the Manor House. In the early 1820s, William Morton Pitt envisaged Swanage as a summer resort town and after the death of John Chapman, his extensive estates in Swanage were sold at a Chancery Sale in 1823 and William Pitt purchased the Manor House. The surrounding farm buildings were removed, and the Manor House was converted into a first-class hotel in 1827 and named the Manor House Hotel. At this time William Pitt built The Rookery, the old customs house, and a private quay, the Stone Quay in front of the hotel.
The most famous guest at the hotel visited on the 7th August 1833. The then, Princess Royal, to become Queen Victoria spent the night at the hotel during her royal tour of Devon and Dorset during July and August of 1833. After the visit the hotel was renamed the Victoria Hotel. William Pitt died in 1836 and the hotel was sold at a Chancery Sale in 1838, where the new owners renamed the hotel The Royal Victoria Hotel.
In 1952 the building was listed as grade II under English Heritage Building ID: 108198. The hotel closed its doors for the last time in 1981, when the building was converted into apartments.
