The Haunted George Hotel
68 High Street, Ashford TN24 8TB
Along Ashford’s High Street you’ll find an old 15th century coaching inn called the George Hotel.
A lot of paranormal activity has been reported to take place at the hotel by spooked members of staff and guests alike…
The hotel’s lights and TV sets mysteriously turn themselves on and off, items disappear, objects are flung through the air by an unseen presence and strange noises keep the guests awake at night!
A lot of this paranormal activity is blamed on the ghost of a young woman who’s believed to be a former chambermaid of the hotel from a couple of centuries ago.
Local legend says that she was brutally murdered by her lover when he discovered she was pregnant.
It’s said that he slit her throat and hanged her body up in the hotel’s cellar!
He was later found guilty of her murder and hanged for the crime.
Terrified witnesses have reported seeing the ghostly apparition of a young woman in the bar area at the back of the hotel.
The ghost of a cavalier was also once seen by a member of staff standing at one of the hotel’s attic windows.
And a guest who was staying in Room 3 was woken up in the middle of his first night stay by a ghostly figure who was rifling through his clothes that were hanging up in the room’s wardrobe!Click Here to Stay in the George Hotel
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
