The Haunted Lion Hotel
Nyetimber Lane, Bognor Regis PO21 3JX
Along Nyetimber Lane in the West Sussex seaside resort of Bognor Regis you’ll find the Lion Hotel.
Two rooms, Room 5 and Room 7 in the 14th century hotel have mysteriously blocked up doorways.
In the past the hotel had a strong link with local smugglers.
In fact, it’s from those smuggling days that the ghost of the Lion Hotel is believed to have come from…
The Lion Hotel is said to be haunted by a ghostly woman.
Witnesses who’ve seen her apparition describe her as being a tall lady who wears a grey dress.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen mainly in the early hours of the morning on the ground floors of the hotel and walking through Room 5 into Room 6.
The ghostly lady is believed to be the spirit of a former landlady who was murdered by smugglers because she knew too much!
Most visitors staying the night at the Lion Hotel don’t actually see her ghost but many do report hearing her phantom footsteps and the swish of her dress.
