The Haunted George Hotel
The Square, Pangbourne, Reading RG8 7A
The George Hotel is situated a stone’s throw away from the River Thames on the Square in the picturesque village of Pangbourne.
The hotel is an old 17th century coaching inn but there’s actually been an inn on the site since the 12th century.
The hotel is said to be haunted by a local witch…
Her name was Betty Price and she was accused of witchcraft.
She was found guilty and executed but before she died she cursed her captors and the George hotel.
She’s now said to haunt the hotel wandering along the hotel’s upstairs corridors!
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.
