AMBERLY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
Today, the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
It's 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!
The Haunting of the Kings Arms Hotel
The Grade II* listed building dates back to 1720 when it started life out as a coaching inn.
Over the years the hotel has been accommodation to royalty.
It’s also reputed to be haunted.
On one occasion a businesswoman who was staying in one of the rooms which have a four poster bed in it, reported somebody unseen enter her room when she was in the bath and make loud banging noises in the bedroom.
She also reported a smell of roses, a sudden temperature drop and the TV turned itself on.
When the lady went to bed, she had her bedclothes pulled off and witnessed a mist form in front of her.
To her surprise the mist turned into an apparition of a Victorian lady dressed in grey regal clothing which she instantly recognised as Queen Victoria.
The Queen was staring in surprise at the woman so the businesswoman said ‘hello m’am’ at which point the Queen disappeared into thin air!
