It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
The hotel was originally a hunting lodge used by Charles I, hence the name!
In the hotel’s cellar are the remains of an underground passageway which was said to lead to a nearby house where the lover of Charles II, Nell Gwynne resided.
In the 1980s, the landlady of the hotel called in a medium to try and explain what was causing the ghostly knockings and other spooky goings-on taking place within the building…
The medium said the paranormal activity was caused by the ghost of a lady called Jenny who was buried somewhere within the hotel!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.

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.
