TRICK OR RETREAT?

LATEROOMS.COM REVEALS THE UK’S MOST HAUNTED HOTELS

 

Halloween is almost upon us, and if you’re up for having a frightfully fun time but don’t have anything organised yet; you’d do well to book yourself in to one of the UK’s most haunted hotels.

With a cauldron-full of ghosts stories and more tales of murder and deception than you’d want to know, here are hotel bookers LateRooms.com’s most haunted British properties – ideal if you’re partial to a petrifying trip.

 

haunted-hotel1

Lumley Castle Hotel, County Durham

Once occupied by the aristocratic Lumley family, rumour has it that the 14th Century lady of the manor, Lily Lumley, still haunts the grand building to this today.

As the story goes, poor Lily was thrown down a well in the castle grounds and, ever since, she’s sought revenge by haunting staff and guests alike at the 4* hotel, including the Australian cricket team, who reported sightings of ghosts when they stayed there during an Ashes tour. Book a room at this hotel and you certainly won’t be stumped the next time you’re asked for a paranormal tale.

 

haunted-hotel2

Redworth Hall Hotel, Darlington

Originally a large Georgian manor house standing in 150 acres of peaceful woodland, Redworth Hall is now a fabulously-appointed and hugely popular hotel, with (you guessed it) plenty of legendary ghosts. This grand old manor house dates back to 1744 and has a haunting history, including a jilted lover who suffered a terrible death in the hall, and is now said to stalk the bedrooms. If that’s not spine-tingling enough, it is said the sounds of ghostly children’s laughter and crying can be heard throughout the building – *shudder*

 haunted-hotel3

Coombe Abbey Hotel, Warwickshire

This 12th Century Cistercian Abbey, with formal gardens designed by Lancelot “Capability” Brown, is a haven of peace and tranquillity. But it’s also home to a number of spooks who’ll certainly liven up your stay.

The Hooded Monk, the ghost of Abbott Geoffrey, was brutally murdered in 1345 and his cloaked figure is said to be seen wandering the castle grounds. He is, legend says, behind the poltergeist activity in the kitchens. And if the monk isn’t scary enough, another spirit resident is a young green-eyed girl known as Matilda – a stablehand who won the eyes of the master of the house. When he made her pregnant and refused to accept her, Matilda cursed the house. She still walks the floors with reports of her footsteps and doors slamming commonplace

 

 

haunted-hotel4

The Holt Hotel, Oxford

Even though the stunning Holt Hotel blends the atmosphere of a 15th Century inn with the modern facilities of any discerning contemporary hotel, it is most famous for its highwayman ghost. Highwayman Claude Duval is often seen walking around the corridors of the hotel and some guests have reported seeing him in their rooms. He was the leader of a notorious gang of highwaymen and was thought to be responsible for many murders, including that of the landlord of the hotel. Guests have reported hearing heavy footsteps in the corridors late at night and feeling as though they were being watched, particularly in Room 3. Dare you book a stay?

 

haunted-hotel5

The Langham, London

Boasting what is widely regarded as the most haunted hotel room in London (room 333), The Langham is as ghoulish as it is grand. Since it opened in 1865, it has long been a popular destination for well-heeled customers, but also home to more than its fair share of ghosts.

Heard the story about the doctor who murdered his wife and then killed himself while on their honeymoon at the hotel? It’s as grim as it sounds. The doctor is still hanging around, too, so if you see a silver haired Victorian gentleman wearing a cravat, say hi from us
