The Green Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  The Green Hotel

The 1913 hotel is haunted by two spirits, believed to be linked with the past of the historic town. The first is a female ghost, perhaps the apparition of Marion Hitchcock, who has been observed parting the upstairs curtains and peering into the street. The second is a man in an old-fashioned suit, whose association with the building is unknown. In 1938, the hotel was rotated ninety degrees to face the road. The spectre has been seen walking through walls in the opposite direction, suggesting that he has not configured with the current layout of the establishment.
