Ramada Crawley Gatwick

The ghost of a porter or butler named as Mark Hewton [or Hurston] has been seen here. In a story that dates back to the Old George Hotel, he had the habit of drinking wine that was intended for guests - until he drank from a glass that had been intended to poison someone else. Another version of the story is that he used to deliver wine to guests at night, whether they wanted it or not and would help himself to any unwanted residue; the unwelcome offering annoyed one guest who deliberately poisoned his drink knowing that the porter would drink it. Since then, strange phenomena including lights turning on and off, strange figures and locked cupboards being found opened, have been reported. There are also said to be "unpleasant feelings" in the porter's old room, reputed to be No.7.
