In 1886, the original Gothic Tudor manor house on the Berystede site was totally destroyed in a terrible fire.
Tragically, a maid called Eliza Kleininger was killed in the fire when she ran back into the burning building to save precious jewellery belonging to her mistress.
Today, the hotel is said to be haunted by a ghostly apparition nicknamed the Blue Lady…
Many say that the Blue Lady is in fact the ghost of the maid Eliza Kleininger!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in and around the Herstmonceux room!
