Rangiriri Hotel

This historic hotel is located adjacent to the hill on which a battle took place many years ago. Staff report eerie presences and a sense of dread around the hotel grounds, but also believe that a resident ghost haunts inside the hotel. Many claim to have seen a tall woman in a white dress in their rooms late at night, who has been known to lock doors, move furniture around and play with the lights.

  1. I found your story about the Rangiriri pub being totally believable, I used to live in a house directly across the Rangiriri bridge which was terrifying. Pictures moved sideways, furniture moved during the night, objects flying across the room and smashing against the walls. And once when went we were out we had a company that takes aerial photographs of property’s we got them to take a photo of our truck yard that day. And even though we were out the photo showed a man inside the house standing looking outside our ranchslider. So it was make ghost
