The Haunted Palace Hotel
Babbacombe Road, Torquay TQ1 3TG
The magnificent Palace Hotel is located along Babbacombe Road in the seaside resort of Torquay.
Before it became a hotel, the building was the home to the Bishop of Exeter.
The hotel is said to be haunted by many different ghosts…
On one occasion, a shocked witnessed saw four ghostly vicars having a conversation at a table, they looked at the witness, smiled and disappeared into thin air!
Another entity which likes to disappear into thin air is of a Victorian man dressed in a black suit.
The most common apparitions to be witnessed at the hotel are of male servants from a bygone age.
Ghostly cleaners and front of house porters have been seen going about their daily work!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel
Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.
The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.
It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.
Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.
To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.
During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.
The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.
Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!
Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.
Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.
Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
