About Langtrees - the past and the present
Our most infamous Madam, Mary-Anne Kenworthy welcomes you to her world. The owner of Australia’s most expensive brothel and Australasia’s premier sex industry directory, Mary-Anne proudly launches her first boutique accommodation - formerly Langtrees 181 in Kalgoorlie.
With a rich and quirky bordello past, Langtrees is well placed to offer guests an unforgettable overnight experience. Stay in one of the 17 individually themed rooms, wander the Gallery to take in the history, play an 1840’s piano, enjoy a delicious high tea or sip a quality wine in the decadent wine bar any day. Steeped in a history as rich as the region, make Langtrees an intriguing home for your next holiday stay.
So many stories to reveal during your boutique stay! Why the well-bred Mary happened upon a brothel, why we can’t bury Clarence yet, the letter from the Queen, the gift that Diamond Lil gave Mary-Anne, why Trev wore his grandmother’s shoes, whose boots live on the piano and how did that piano survive the trip from Fremantle on the back of a camel. A tour of the Gallery and The Miner 69ers Bar answers these mysteries and more, and it is just a few steps away from your luxurious bedroom.
Langtrees was named after Lillie Langtry, the famous 1870’s high society Victorian beauty, a much admired English actress touring UK, USA and South Africa with her own company and at one time the mistress of the Prince of Wales who publicly acknowledged her as his lover. Two years after opening Langtrees, Mary-Anne discovered she had spelt Lillie’s surname incorrectly. Lillie was not available for comment, but a lithograph Mary-Anne pinched from her grandfather has pride of place on the wall.
And by the way, Mary the resident ghost only appears when good things are happening, so will you see Mary when you stay with us!
