The Haunted Royal Castle Hotel

11 The Quay, Dartmouth TQ6 9PS

The 17th century Royal Castle Hotel is located in the middle of Dartmouth on the Quay overlooking the Harbour and the River Dart.

The historic grade II* listed hotel dates back to 1639.

Queen Victoria, Sir Francis Drake, Mary II, Edward VII, Agatha Christie and Cary Grant all stayed at the hotel.

The hotel is said to be haunted by a ghostly stagecoach which turns up in the early hours of the morning to pick up phantom passengers.

This paranormal activity normally takes place in the autumn months!

Other ghostly sounds heard taking place outside the hotel is the sound of two people fighting in the courtyard.

One of the hotel’s bedrooms is also rumoured to be haunted…

Terrified guests have reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a robed figure in the room!

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.
