  1. Hi There:

    I stayed in the hotel on 22nd March 2019. I checked in room # 404 and that night when I was going to sleep, my light in the washroom turned off on its own, I checked the switch and it was off. It was quite creepy. I didn’t know about this hotel being haunted but when I asked the service guy he didn’t answer but smiled at me, I searched on Google and found out that this hotel is one of the haited places in Victoria. Quite an experience.
