The Haunted George Hotel
1 North Street, Bishop’s Stortford CM23 2LD
On the corner of North Street in the market town of Bishop’s Stortford you’ll find the historic George Hotel.
The George dates back to 1417.
In the 1600’s both Charles I and Charles II visited the hotel.
Now the George has a reputation for being haunted by a Grey Lady.
Terrified members of staff have seen a white shape hovering in the hotel’s cellar…
But the cellar isn’t the most paranormally active area within the hotel, that’s left to Room 27!
It’s said that a woman was once stabbed to death by a burglar in that room.
Guest staying in the room had complained that they feel their being watched by something unknown.
And have also reported seeing the wardrobe’s doors open on their own accord and the bedroom’s lights turn on and off by themselves.
On one occasion a young couple witnessed a grey mist above the bed…
And one poor guest was scared witless when he saw a ghostly apparition of a lady in a grey dress next to the bed looking as though she was in a lot of pain!
