The Haunted Royalist Hotel
1 Digbeth Street, Stow-on-the-Wold GL54 1BN
The Royalist Hotel is situated at the beginning of Digbeth Street in Stow-on-the-Wold.
The hotel is said to be the oldest inn in England with parts of the building dating back to 947AD!
The inn was once known as the Eagle and Child Inn but is now called the Royalist Hotel due to the town’s importance during the English Civil War.
With such a long and eventful history it’s no wonder that the hotel has now got a reputation for being haunted.
In fact, it’s said to have many ghosts roaming around…
Members of staff and guests alike have witnessed the ghostly apparition of a young man standing near the reception area.
Apparently, he just vanishes into thin air right in front of their eyes!
Witnesses have reported hearing eerie tapping noises in the hotel which are believed to be made by the ghosts of two mischievous Victorian children.
The hotel’s staircase seems to be a very paranormally active place as it’s said to be haunted by two ghosts…
A beautiful lady in a long dress and a cavalier from the English Civil War!
The final ghost said to haunt the Royalist Hotel is of a knight clad from head to toe in black armour.Click Here to Stay in the Royalist Hotel
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.
