UK Haunted Hotels

Welcome to my on-going project, in tandem with my Ghost Mapping Project, to categorise haunted hotels in the UK, which as before, is aimed at encouraging people to explore the country and perhaps learn something of our haunted heritage, and our rich tapestry of history. Please visit regularly for frequent updates!
If you don't see a famous hotel in my listing, its because of work I am doing on my ghost survey, where I have been contacting thousands of venues asking about their current "haunted" status and whether they have experienced anything paranormal in the last few years. I felt it approrpriate to omit locations that have reported nothing - it saves you time and money if you are planning to stay at the hotel. I apologise for the lack of hotels (to date) in Northern Ireland. There main candidate was the Ballygally Castle - but they informed me that all has been quiet for a while now.

Please note that I can't be held liable for the non-appearance of any ghosts or associated phenomena; or even if room numbers have changed since my write-up! Most of the hotels below are unresponsive to any ghost reports, so if you do experience something, please email me here

Flitwick Manor Hotel
Church Road, Flitwick, MK45 1AE
An old Victorian lady in white, a little hazy but otherwise solid, has been seen walking through various rooms and along corridors at night, looking out of the windows; she has also been seen in the upstairs bedrooms where she has been seen crying while seated on the bed. Sometimes there are reports of rose perfume that accompany her. Additionally, cushions sometimes have an impression as if someone had been seated upon them. There have also been reports of poltergeist-like activity including footsteps, lights turning off, doors being found unlocked, a clock falling off the wall and pan lids flying out of the cupboard in the kitchen, landing with a clatter. Staff have reported feeling "a cool hand" on their forehead and a heavy weight on their beds during the night. Interestingly, the hauntings intensified after a small room, probably used by servants, was found in the loft. There is also a story of a little girl who was seen by a cleaner, who had felt something touch her skirt. The cleaner left the next day!

Macdonald Berystede Hotel
Bagshot Road, Sunninghill, Ascot, SL5 9JH
The ghost here is said to be Eliza Kleineger, the maid to Mrs Standish who owned the building.

The Ostrich Inn
High Street, Colnbrook, Slough, SL3 0JZ
Bumps, sighs and other noises have been heard here and have been attributed to a landlord who murdered his guests by dumping them in a vat of boiling fat.

There are also stories of a lady who looks as if she is from the Victorian era being seen in the upstairs corridor, candles in the function room re-igniting and taps turning on and off in the upstairs ladies toilets too.

The lady in white was also seen upstairs on the landing; in addition, strange creaking noises have been heard coming from one of the bedrooms. Glasses have also moved by themselves and some smash onto the floor, in an area that used to be accommodation; glasses and beer mats have also been found on the floor having previously been placed on shelves.

The Swan Revived Hotel
High Street, Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes, MK16 8AR
A grey figure has been sighted here, thought variously to be a soldier from either the First World War or a Roundhead from the English Civil War; in this latter story, the soldier was an officer who was recuperating at the Swan after losing his leg during practising manoeuvres. He is said to have embarked on a visit to the many hostelries and tried to arrange the services of a prostitute. When he couldn't "perform", she told him that he wouldn't get a refund and after a blazing row, the pair were ejected. The prostitute, by some means, incurred an injury to the head when the pair went to the river Ouse and she ended up in the water, her body eventually washed up. The solider either hung himself in the attic of the Swan, or also drowned himself in the river. As far as other phenomena are concerned, a guest felt someone tugging at him during the night. He thought it was his wife but she denied it. Soon after, a pair of hands grabbed him, pulled him out of the bed and dumped him on the floor. Needless to say, the couple soon left.

The Bell Inn
High Street, Stilton, PE7 3RA
Dick Turpin is said to have hidden from the authorities in the hotel for 9 weeks before fleeing. His ghost is said to haunt this inn. A fire has been found in a grate, lit by itself apparently, (one version of this story is that the fire burst into life while apparently being observed - this was in Turpin's old room) and a dark figure has been seen at the bottom of people's beds or on horseback outside the inn. Other incidents include: a lady in "period clothes", a short figure standing by the bed in room 33, shadowy figures in the peripheral vision, and items being reported missing, only to reappear days later. Furthermore, in the 1960s, a landlord's dog would howl after midnight on a wednesday for no reason. In addition, writer Daniel Defoe, who is said to have stayed in the inn between 1697 and 1701 is reputed to return as a ghost. His spectre is said to have been seen sitting by the fireplace in the reception, smoking a clay pipe.

The Golden Lion Hotel
Market Hill, St Ives, PE27 5AL
Rooms 12, 13, 14 and 15 and the adjacent corridor were said to be haunted but the building seems to be quiet today apart from a few "strange incidents"; in room 12 or 13 a green lady was to be seen (she even pulled the bedclothes off one guest, it is said) and in No.15, a soldier from the English Civil War era (probably a Royalist) was observed gliding through a wall. It is said that on the 13th day of every month, Oliver Cromwell himself walks the aforementioned corridor.

The Black Swan
Manchester Road, Glazebrook, WA3 6LA
Steve Jones, an attendee at the "Weird Weekend 2022" convention relates the following; "...this is what I was told by the maanger of The Black Swan about his experiences there over the last couple of years: Martin told me that apart from the usual glasses slipping off shelves with no reason etc, he had 3 events that shocked him.The first was when he was alone sleeping in the Elmhurst Room in the annex during lockdown. Something pounded on the door around 3 AM. He got up and realised he was the only one there. Nothing outside and nothing on CCTV when he checked either. Second was after they locked up the restaurant for the night. He was outside talking to 2 staff when they all saw a black shape go past the lit till in the room and blot it out,thinking they had left someone in they went back but nobody there. Last was as he locked up the bar one night something blew in his ear!That really scared him."

The spectral activity seems to be focussed in rooms 8 and 9 where a figure has been seen; in the latter room, some say that it is the ghost of a chambermaid.

Another phantom said to have been encountered here originally started off in the stable block; the man in question died there after he knocked over a lantern and set fire to the building and himself. In the cellar, he makes noises and turns beer pumps on and off. Cold draughts, and the feeling of being touched or prodded have also been experienced.

The new wing was built in 1989 and was built on the site of a graveyard.

The Three Crowns
High Street, Chagford, TQ13 8AJ
Poet and Royalist Sydney Godolphin was shot on the porch by a Parliamentarian and died on the stone benches before he was taken inside the hotel - but prior to this he dispatched as many Roundheads as he could with his sword; his ghost consequently haunts this building, where he has been seen wearing his Cavalier garb, walking through walls with a sad expression on his face. He has also been seen (understandably!) on the porch, and even "startling" guests when they enter their rooms. Another ghost is that of a lady in blue, possibly Mary Whiddon, who is a descendant of John who built this inn and has also been seen at the nearby church.

The White Hart
66 South Street, Exeter, EX1 1EE
Judge Jeffreys is said to haunt this building, as does a young woman in a long black flowing cloak who appears at the front of the hotel (or walks from the courtyard to South Street, where she vanishes according to some reports); a child's face has also been reported in one of the windows in the bar. A local legend is that members of staff were sent to investigate a smell coming from a well in the courtyard; they never returned but cries for help have allegedly been heard ever since. Another version of this tale is that two men died when they went to repair the long neglected well, but died after being overcome by "an uncommon stench." A third man barely survived. Another legend blames a cockatrice (a mythical creature part lizard, part rooster) for their deaths. Additionally, a spectral boy in old fashioned clothing has been seen crying in this hotel, but he runs off when people approach him. A little girl in a long dress has been seen seated on the steps of the manager's accommodation, seemingly waiting for someone. In the courtyard, a man carrying a whip and wearing a three cornered hat was glimpsed; also in the same area, a "solid looking" woman in a Puritan dresses has also been observed. It is said that it seems as if she is walking up some stairs which no longer exist; first the top half of her body is seen, and then her legs and feet. Also to be seen are "three toga-clad ghosts who march through a wall."In the bedrooms, a bed was felt moving - it faced the corner where a priest hole is to be found; when the furniture in the room was reorganised, the disturbances stopped. Additionally, boxes and other items are found in disarray in the attic, and next door, hand dryers in a disused bathroom often activate by themselves. Taps have also been found turned on, and a former owner's dog reacted in a terrified fashion when taken to the attic. A recent report says that a customer's father was disturbed by someone tapping him in the early hours of the morning, followed by a little boy who ran up and down the corridor, laughing.

The Bull Hotel
34 East Street, Bridport, DT6 3LF
Disembodied voices are heard in this pub, especially the toilets; it is reputed that the hotel was built on the site of a medieval graveyard. A gentleman named Wadham Strangeways is said to be one of the phantoms in the hotel; he was accidentally killed when the Duke of Monmouth landed at Lyme Regis in 1685 with 82 men to claim the throne from his uncle, King James II. The Duke's makeshift army tried to raise an army and to seek news of the royal army. Strangeways took refuge in the hotel and in the resultant skirmish, a stray shot struck him, dying soon afterwards. Another man, said to have been killed at the same time, is also seen in the same room, which is apparently sealed up. A middle aged lady has also been seen in the reception, chatting to a companion who is invisible to onlookers, and the voice of a child heard in the lounge.

The Ancient Unicorn
The Street, Bowes, Barnard Castle, DL12 9HL
The ghost of "Emma" (real name Martha Railton) has been encountered here. In 1713 she fell in love with a local teenager, Roger Wrightson, but their respective parents were bitter rivals, running separate inns. The lovers had to meet in secret but after one meeting on the moorland Roger contracted a serious fever and a few days later his parents agreed that he should see Martha, but her parents disagreed. Roger died of his ailment and Martha died heartbroken immediately afterwards. The parents agreed that they should be buried together. Some reports say that her loved one has also appeared at the inn. On a recent occasion, a guest to the inn wasn't too impressed about the noise of a late night party but when he entered the room, the sound stopped - and he noticed a girl in a green party dress in the middle of the room, who vanished moments later. Roman soldiers are also said to have been seen here, after they were killed by the locals who had "taken a dislike to them." They are said to appear on the anniversary of the deaths - but reports fail to specify when this is. A dark haired man has been seen next to the fireplace (perhaps Roger Wrightson?), and a man in a bowler hat has been observed in various parts of the pub, as has a lady in a grey Victorian dress. Meanwhile, in the cellar, a boy of about 12 years old has been encountered; he was thrown here as punishment and never allowed to leave. A strange shimmering cloud of darkness was also seen in the mirror in the dining room. People also report the sensation of being touched and pushed, and of hearing strange noises in the night.

Blackwell Grange Hotel
Blackwell Grange, Darlington, DL3 8QH
There are numerous ghosts claimed for this building, now a hotel. These include two ex-owners of the estate, Dorothy Allan and her sister Ann. Also seen apparently is a coachman who was dismissed for getting a maid pregnant and who hung himself. His spirit is sometimes seen in the ground, wailing piteously. The most malevolent phantom is The Tartan Lady, the living embodiment of a long since destroyed painting. Prince William, the Duke of Cumberland stayed at the Grange loaded with treasures ransacked at Culloden and he left a painting of a lady in tartan. In April 1821, owner George Allan's cousin stopped overnight and the ghost of the lady in the painting appeared to him that night, materialising through his room door. He shot at the figure and later found the painting had bullet holes in it. Although the picture was burnt, the ghost is still seen to this day, it is said.

Some versions of the aftermath say that Sir Ralph did not believe this and had the priests executed - ghostly monks have also been seen in the castle grounds. A young girl aged 5 or 6 in 19th century garb, noises, objects moving, lights and a voice whispering in someone's ear have all been experienced, too.

She married the local vicar Alexander Gough and then vanished (because of his "domineering" ways according to some); while away, she married another husband, John Primrose, Lord Delmeny. There are conflicting reports about her death; in one version, it is related that she and her first husband made their peace as she lay dying of consumption; some versions state that she confessed to her second husband that she was still married to Gough; others state that she returned to the village with her second husband before passing away; while yet more tales tell how she just wanted to buried in her home village and died elsewhere. Her ghost has been blamed on a moving wardrobe and sheets have been messed with suggesting someone has slept in the bed. It is also said that "paranormal activity" has been felt in the neighbouring cottage, presumably the one in which Kitty lived for a while...?

Kings Head Hotel
24 Market Place, Cirencester, GL7 2NW
A ghostly monk has been seen in this hotel, once the site of an old monastery; on one occasion he was seen siting on a barstool and then vanished, knocking over the stool as he did so. He has also been seen in the cellar and undercroft. A staff member was so scared at seeing the phantom that she resigned from her job. Another ghost is said to be Lord Lovelace, who was attacked and died here after locals heard him voicing his support for King James in the hotel (James' Catholic sympathies in a Protestant country had caused much dissent). The spectral Cavalier observed here is thought to be Bulstrode Whitelock who was shot and later died in a room in the hotel, which is named after him. One employee looked up from working in the room to see the ghost pointing a gun at his head! Another spectre, reported to have been the phantom of a man who was tortured by the Romans is thought to be responsible for wailing noises. Footsteps, objects being flung around and a fireball that vanished when it hit a mirror have also been experienced here too.

She was buried in an unmarked grave. In some versions of the tale, the officer returned and learned her fate before dying in a duel with Lucette's brother. Now, Lucette walks the hall and also the stone bridge. But some say that she has been seen all year round; one guest even said that he saw her sitting on the end of their bed.

The White Hart Hotel
Bailgate, Lincoln, LN1 3AR
There are many ghosts associated with this building! The inn was a notorious meeting place of ruffians and scoundrels in the past, and one of them returns to the inn as a spectre. A legend is that it is the ghost of a highwayman who had a torch thrust in his face after a robbery was thwarted by the coachman; another version is that the incident happened in the pub itself when soldiers arrived to break up the motley gathering. The ghost is reported to wear a cloak to hide his disfigured face. Another ghost is that of a maid who was murdered by a rat catcher when she rejected his advances; her spirit is said to cower in the corner with a terrified look on her face. Additionally, a former owner of the inn, wearing a cravate and smoking jacket returns to the apartments that overlook Bailgate, where the White Hart is located. However, other accounts say he is a man who was robbed during a stay and the shock killed him. Yet another ghost is that of a man in a military outfit, who is seen on the top floor. The young son of one of the owners has mentioned seeing a lady in a long dress who had tucked him into bed at night on occasion. Ghostly children have been heard parading noisily through the corridors, too. A 17th century cleric roams the underground passages; and outside the hotel, people have heard the sounds of soldiers, possibly Roman, marching or stagecoaches (which have sometimes been seen). Finally, one account reports a phantom cat! In decades gone by, guests have told tales of a dancing ball of light, cutlery and food being thrown off a table, and the sound of a small "explosion."

Norfolk

Bell Hotel
King St, Thetford, IP24 2AZ
The main hub of the hauntings seem to be room 29, which had previously been numbered 10, and before that, 12. A guest on his honeymoon noted a cold spot outside his room and said that he felt as if someone was pushing the door closed as he tried to open it. Footsteps had been heard pacing up and down the corridor - and then soon after, actually in the room. The same guest saw a young girl, apparently solid, in the room on two consecutive nights. On other nights, he saw the wardrobe handle moving making a rapping sound, and soon aftewards noted TV picture was flickering - and then he saw the aerial lead moving in a whipping fashion. His experiences culimated in waking to find the ghost sitting on his bed looking at him. The figure arose, causing the mattress to rise and, keeping a gaze on him, walked off - and vanished. The guest described the ghost as 12-13 years old, with fair hair, wearing along white gown and a garland around her neck, with her outfit having "puffed out sleeves." The figure was described as almost self illuminating. The manager showed him a portrait and he identified top half of the face as "his" girl, although most of the picture was of someone older - landlady Betty Radcliffe, who died in 1829. Perhaps for this reason, the ghost has been nicknamed "Betty" and has been experienced by members of staff; housekeepers jokingly asked "Betty" if she'd been a good girl and let the guests get sleep, at which point, the room went cold and the staff members fled! In rooms 6 and 8 (though the rooms have probably been renumbered since the mid 1990s), a white haze floated past a staff member into the wall. Children have also been heard playing in empty rooms (where crying has also been heard), keys have been rattled in a lock, and a phantom monk has been seen too, amongst other sightings.

The story is that the ghost here is called "Arthur", a blacksmith whose shop was on the site of the hotel. He was hanged when Cromwell's forces arrived and asked him to provide shoes for their horses but as a Royalist, Arthur refused - and was duly executed. Tobacco smoke, the spectre of a young woman, a door rattling, glasses moving off the shelves and the sensation of being pushed in the back has also occurred here. The phantom is said to be encountered in the wine cellar and two of the bedrooms, including one that overlooks the walnut tree where the blacksmith was hanged.

The Hind Hotel
Sheep Street, Wellingborough, NN8 1BY
A "White Lady" haunts the hotel, and is reportedly seen between 10pm and midnight between late September and early October; she is supposed to be a servant girl who overheard plans for the Battle of Naseby and was murdered. In room 3, there is a "Grey Lady" but details are scant. A spectral Cavalier has also been observed, as has a little girl in the restaurant, and "Mrs Priddy", though she has not been seen for some time. The crying of a young child has been heard (probably the girl in the restaurant?), and someone felt as if they had been touched, accompanied by a giggle. Poltergeist-like activity has also been noticed too, with lights dimming and going on and off, the loud sound of furniture moving in "The Cromwell Room" and more dangerously, a manager being struck on the face by a glass and a bottle of orange juice; this same member of staff also had ashtrays explode in front of his face.

The Talbot Hotel
New St, Oundle, PE8 4EA
A weight pressing a guest firmly down in bed, moving furniture, and a picture that jumps off the wall have been mentioned as occurring here. This latter picture depicts the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots, and legend has it that it is her spectre who inhabits these walls, particularly two of the top rooms and the staircase where she walked en route to her execution (it is on the staircase that strong perfume has also been detected). She has been seen at the bottom of the foot of the bed in one of these rooms, wearing a long black dress. She has also been observed looking out of a window but in this case, only by men. Additionally, cold spots, footsteps and a woman singing and crying have been mentioned; this latter incident was reported on the anniversary of Mary's execution and is said to go on for hours on the top floor. In some of the bedrooms, various phenomena have been reported, such as a swirling white mist and a figure in a long black dress. Interestingly, it is said that manifestations occur after alterations have been made to the building.

The World's End
Northampton Road, Ecton, NN6 0QN
Footsteps on the stairs, bar and dining area, the feeling of someone brushing past a manageress, a customer in the restaurant who had her back to the wall but felt a push on her arm, a crackling sound accompanied by a "static electric" style shock, and objects falling off the shelves have been experienced here as well as footfalls and shadowy figures in the cellar. There are a number of apparitions here; a woman wearing a grey dress, a phantom nun (also seen in the village) an indistinct figure (who was only seen to one person, while others walked through it, oblivious to the phantom!), a ghost walking in the cellar (which once doubled as a mortuary) from the knees up, a little girl from the Victorian era in the attic and an old lady in the kitchen and other areas. Some of these reports may refer to the same phantom - for instance, the "Grey Lady" may possibly be the nun as that is how witnesses once described it, saying that it looked as if they were viewing it "through a murky glass." Two other phantoms are a former landlord and the barmaid whom he killed due to jealousy; he afterwards killed himself. It seems that the two never meet as spirits.

The Castle Hotel
103 Castlegate, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, TD15 1LF
It has been suggested in the past that the ghost here was a cook who had hanged himself in the kitchen from the overhead pipes. Reported phenomena include staff hearing crashing noises from the cellar, which was locked. As staff entered the cellar they saw a crate of mixers lift into the air and being flung across the room; the noises previously heard were made by two crates of empty mixer bottles and a crate of empty beer bottles being hurled around. There is, or was, said to be poltergeist activity in the bar, dining room and kitchen. Items, such as order pads, corkscrews, and a knife used to slice lemons, would go missing and later turn up in the dining room, kitchen or occasionally behind the reception desk. In addition, beer taps would be turned off in the cellar. On one occasion, a staff member who had been left to hold the fort in an otherwise empty hotel heard the noise of the front door swinging open, and looking up, she saw a tall figure wearing a long black coat (like a coachman's) and top hat, walk into the lobby and then go behind reception desk. When she checked there was no-one there.

Langley Castle Hotel

The "Grey Lady" seen here is believed to be Maud de Lucy, the widow of Sir Thomas, the man who created the castle. She died falling from the battlements and this has been re-enacted on several occasions; other versions of her death claim that she jumped from a window after hearing of his death at the Battle of Shrewsbury after keeping watch for his return from that very same window. Guests say that her phantom has been seen at that window, muttering her husband's name before jumping to her fate. She has also been seen in the Great Hall. A phantom bell and French voices have also been reported, as have visions of the castle being attacked by soldiers and burning; this may refer to an attack upon the castle in 1405 by Henry V's forces when the building was left derelict for some time

Schooner Hotel
8 Northumberland Street, Alnmouth, NE66 2RS
The management of this hotel claim that there are 60 spectres in this one building! A large black figure charging out of room 20 and trying to break through a fire door, "William" (who murdered his family 200 years ago) in rooms 4, 7, 28, 29 and 30 and the corridors, an airman outside rooms 15-19, an old lady with a walking stick, dark shadows, and a young boy and girl seen and heard laughing in the bar area (where she died after banging her head on the hearth) are some of the phantoms here. Naturally, there are many conflicting stories; for instance, rooms 28, 29 and 30 are reported to be the epicentre of acitivy - the first of these was where the French DeVere family planned to stay but they were murdered by a gypsy and their bodies dumped at sea. Screams have been attributed to a lady named Eleanor who killed herself and her unborn child after she was told her husband Jack had been lost at sea. The ghost of Parson John is said to be seen in September. He was killed when he was brewing ale and the tap on the cask blew off and hit him on the head, killing him instantly; his phantom is said to walk, holding the tap aloft. There are obviously many tales associated with this building!

Father Bernard, a Catholic priest haunts the hotel, most notable on the staircase; he used the building centuries ago to practise his faith at a time when Catholics were persecuted. It had been arranged that a bell would be sounded to warn the priest of danger but one day a servant rang the bell as a joke, and the priest died of a heart attack at the thought he had been discovered. However, the accounts of his demise seem confused, with at least one account saying that he died a natural death. Whatever his fate, his phantom is said to be "jolly", "smiling and chuckling" as he hurries down the corridors, but he has also been reported in the grounds, sometimes skipping along and sometimes with his cowl obscuring his head.

The Feathers Hotel
24-25 Bull Ring, Ludlow, SY8 1AA
Guests have reported icy fingers on their back in room 211, their clothing being thrown out of a wardrobe and the sound of applause followed by the noise of someone hurrying away; the ghost apparently does not like women (one reported having her hair yanked, and some versions of this story say that she was pulled out of bed, again by the hair). However, the ghost here has been known to caress the faces of men. A couple asked to be placed in a haunted room and were allocated room 212; they only stayed a few hours before checking out. They did not divulge what they had experienced, but a later guest claimed that "Henry VIII" was in the room! A phantom man and his dog has been seen walking along the corridor between rooms 232 and 233. This same figure may also be the one seen in the James I room, seated at the window; he and his dog have also been seen in a room in the modern wing of the hotel, where they emerge from a wall, cross the room and disappear into the opposite wall. Footsteps have also been heard in the Great Hall (also known as "The Prince Charles Suite"); in the afore mentioned James I suite, a night porter continually heard his name being called out. It occurred so often that he got used to it! A "Lady in Black" is said to have been a regular visitor; in 1974 she was seen dressed in a contemporary mini skirt and walked through a parked car outside the hotel. It is not known if she still appears.

A figure has been seen in the cellar, but its features are ill defined, described as a dense white mist although one report said that it is female. A rarely, and briefly seen figure is a military man in a seat in the main lounge; he is described as wearing a bright red army tunic. The most frequent phantom visitor is that of the Old Grey Lady, usually seen in the grand ballroom, glancing around as if looking for someone, and then seemingly satisfied, she walks down to the reception (she is sometimes described as wearing blue clothing). Poltergeist-like activity has been reported, with a door opening itself obligingly for an approaching porter, a piano playing by itself and candlesticks being lifted into the air. A room above the stairs where an unspecified crime took place is the source of groans and moans and a lit candle has been observed in the window.

Prince Rupert Hotel
Butcher Row, Shrewsbury, SY1 1UQ
Allegedly, there are 10-12 active sightings of ghosts in this hotel. The spectre of a young girl who killed herself has sometimes been seen, her body hanging from a beam in the Prince Phillip Suite; this may be the phantom reported in room 5, who likes to remove the bed clothes of single men. This young lady, according to legend, is that of a maid who killed herself after she was abandoned at the altar on her wedding day. Also seen is an elderly man wearing a nightshirt and carrying a candle as if looking for something (and who disappears into a wall!) and a maid named "Martha" on a staircase (perhaps the girl mentioned above?). In rooms 6 and 7 inexplicable noises have been heard, the former is said to be haunted by a jilted bride, the other by a jilted brigegroom. They each committed suicide, and may be related to the young girl mentioned above even though neither ghost is said to be visible according to some sources. Other rooms have reported phenomena too; in the Prince Rupert Suite, a depression was often seen on the bed as if someone had been seated there. In the Prince Rupert Lounge (where the titular royal is said to have lived between 1641 and 1644), the (now) owner and a colleague once spent the night. At one point they went away briefly to get a drink and upon returning, their pillows had vanished. After much searching, they were found in the lift. Three ghosts are said to haunt the basement; these include a young Tudor lad named "Thomas". He is said to be encountered near a wall behind which a pond is/was located, and where he drowned. He is reported to have held the hand of a lady for some 20 minutes, leading her through the hotel and down to the area of the pond. Although the lady could feel his hand, the phantom was not observed. Another presence here is one who interferes with people's necks; one regular visitor to the hotel reports the sensation of being clasped around the neck; and a lady felt someone unclasping her necklace.

South Yorkshire

Best Western Plus Sheffield Mosborough Hall Hotel
High Street, Mosborough, S20 5EA
Floorboards that apparently showed bloodstains in room 9 were removed here. The story is that a squire got a servant girl pregnant, and when he spurned her, she threatened to tell his wife, whereupon the squire chased her into the hall and murdered her in an upstairs room with a knife, hence the "bloodstains". Some grisly versions say that he slit her throat in her sleep; others say that the lady concerned wasn't a servant, but a governess and that he rejected her "due to his limited financial resources"; while some adaptations of the tale say that the squire pursued her out of the building where he murdered her. This latter variant ties in with reports of her running from the farmyard, across Hollow Lane and through a doorway. The sightings are all around September 8th, presumably the date of her murder. She has also apparently been observed inside the hotel, and the sound of an argument heard which was presumably their final quarrel. Additionally, during renovation work, the architect heard strange noises and his dog wouldn't go into an area of the 1st floor. Finally, people have also heard their name called.

Dog & Partridge
High Street, Tutbury, DE13 9LS
A worker employed at the hotel between 2013 and 2017 said that there was a "Grey Lady" there and that sometimes a dark shadow would walk past her into a room, but upon investigation, it was no longer there. In the rooms, TV would turn up by themselves to show static, and items would be found moved. In the meeting room, it was common to hear the sound of children laughing - and a young boy in Victorian clothing was seen there. In the old coal store, which was converted into a staff flat and where a butcher had died of a heart attack, the plug to the TV would come out of the wall - and once, when the employee had finished her shift, the kettle and stand was sitting in the bathroom with no explanation as to how it got there. In the 18th century, a coach used to run between Liverpool and London calling into the Dog and Partridge and people who live in the area sometimes hear the sound of horses and wheels running over cobbles in the early hours.

A spectral nun, accompanied by the smell of lavender has also been seen on the first floor landing; she has also been seen drifting down the stairs into the restaurant. In the main lounge, an old man has sometimes been seen seated by the fireplace, and a spectral butler observed in one of the front bedrooms.

The Grotto
Coast Road, Marsden, South Shields, NE34 7BS
The caves were created by blasting explosives in the rock face by local miner Jack Bates, nicknamed Jack the Blaster. After he died the caves were fashioned into a pub and for a time was the place where smugglers would hide their fare. One smuggler was killed by a custom's official and the legend is that his tankard (which has since been stolen) would be found empty in the morning when filled at night to placate his ghost. Additionally, a ghostly cat, unexplained footsteps (and if legend is to be believed, "bare footprints that will not wash away"), banging and whispering, knockings coming from the cellar, lights being turned on and off, the sounds of a party, objects moving, a poltergeist in the toilets and dark shadows being seen in the caves have been reported. Some say that the screams of long-dead smugglers who were murdered by their comrades or drowned at high tide have been heard. A variant of this story is that a smuggler named Jack (or John) the Jibber was left to starve to death in a barrel here and it is his screams that have been heard. This was his punishment after he informed the authorities of his comrade's illegal activities and they sought vengeance.

Arrow Mill Hotel
Arrow, Alcester, B49 5NL
A grey lady is said to be seen on the first floor and was thought by one of the proprietors to be a nuisance; it does not seem that she is seen very often perhaps due to remodelling of this area. It is thought that the lady was one of two sisters who ran the mill in the 16th or 17th century and was caught in the machinery, killing her. Occasionally, it is said that the river runs red, a spectral remnant of the time a human head was found wedged in the sluice. It seems that a miller in the 19th century had an argument with his wife and in a fit of rage, decapitated her and threw the cranium in the river. The opaque shadow of a heavy man, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and with his arms a little way from its side was once seen in the bar; the witness soon after sought employment at another hotel!

Kings Coughton, Alcester, B49 5QQ
A staff member caught someone walking into the dining room and heard the swish of the door; a manageress later "jumped" when she felt someone invisible going past her. A short while later, the head chef was walking up the stairs to his accommodation when he heard footsteps behind him, and he felt someone come into his room. Apart from this, it would seem that phenomena are few and far between. There is a legend that a Cavalier used to meet a lady much younger than he was. They used to meet secretly in the courtyard here as her parents disapproved of their relationship. It is said that they both died in mysterious circumstances.

The White Swan Hotel
High Street, Henley in Arden, B95 5BY
A lady of "dubious virtue" (named Virginia Black) who was pushed down the stairs was said to have haunted this building, though it is not clear if she is still encountered. She is, or was, said to appear in the corridor outside the room (17) where she met her male guests. In this room, a couple reported that their quilt was being tugged during the night, each of them thinking that the other was to blame! When they woke, they looked to find shadows of about half a dozen people who quickly faded away. The man soon fell asleep but his wife stayed awake and saw a grey lady - a young woman with a bulky body, which was a shapeless mass of dark grey. This spectre also faded away in seconds. In addition, the pub was used as a local court and it is said that one lady who was hanged for murder returned, or returns here after death.

At least one female ghost haunts this pub. A licensee once told of seeing the train of a pale coloured frilly dress on the stairs; the door at the bottom had opened and the dress was pulled through ... but there was no-one there a few second later. This may belong to a phantom woman seen in a guest room; she was described as sitting on the bed and wearing a long pale coloured dress. The same phantom (?) was seen going up the stairs to the top floor having surprised an American guest on the floor below. The spectral girl was said to be about 40, had long blonde hair and a white silky dress, and "fluttered" up the stairs. She was said to be "beautiful." Another female phantom has been described, this time a young girl, apparently from the 16th or 17th century. When seen, she was wearing a long pale blue dress and train, and a hat with scarf over it. She faded away when she was greeted. Other phenomena have also occurred: water was once seen streaming down a beam, but there was no source of liquid above - and no puddle underneath could be found either. A girl who stopped with the daughter of the licensee was in bed and felt something wet touching her side and as she sat upright, she heard a "whoosh" from her side of the bed and out of the closed door. A phantom voice has been heard calling staff member's names - the voice sounded like one of their colleagues or family. It would seem that all is quiet in the pub for the time being...

Dreadnought Hotel
Station Road, Callander, FK17 8AN
A ghostly girl is said to haunt this hotel but her origins are unclear. In some versions of the legend, she was the wife of the founder of the hotel, Francis MacNab, who had his wife walled up.

Sobbing and weeping coming from one of the bedrooms is the hallmark of the second phantom and it is said that this may be an illegitimate child of MacNab who was drowned in a well in the basement. MacNab himself is also reputed to haunt the hotel.
