The Haunted Schooner Hotel
8 Northumberland Street, Alnmouth, Alnwick NE66 2RS
The Grade II listed 17th century Schooner Hotel is an old coaching inn located in village of Alnmouth.
The village is situated on the mouth of the River Aln and was once a famous sea port.
Over the centuries both the village and the Schooner Hotel have been linked to smuggling.
In the Schooner’s cellar there’s actually a blocked off smuggler’s tunnel which at one time led all the way to the nearby shore.
The hotel also has the odd story or two about murders, family massacres, hangings and suicides associated with it.
The Schooner Hotel has a reputation for being haunted…
In fact, it’s said to have well over sixty ghosts within its walls!
Rooms 16 and 17 are said to be haunted both inside and outside in the hallway by ghostly shadowy figures.
Spooked witnesses have seen a ghostly apparition of a little boy outside these rooms and he’s believed to be the spirit responsible for knocking on doors.
Two members of staff were scared out of their lives when they witnessed a dark figure rush out of Room 20 and crash into the fire doors opposite…
Fear turned into panic when the ghostly figure turned and rushed at them!
A lot of paranormal activity takes place in Rooms 28, 29 and 30.
Especially Room 28 where suicides, murders and family massacres are said to have taken place.
Guests and members of staff alike have witnessed a ghostly apparition of a maid on the staircase.
A ghostly soldier is also often witnessed walking up and down the hotel’s corridors and is said to also haunt Room 16.
In fact, the Schooner Hotel has such a reputation for being haunted that the gang from Most Haunted felt that they just had to investigate it back in 2003 for their Series 3!
