  1. We had a ghost dog in our room, We didn’t know the hotel was haunted,and when we told reception they weren’t surprised it had been seen, but thought it strange it was in our room as it was normally seen in another part of the hotel.

  2. Hey, I haven’t stayed or been in the hotel but me and my family was walking past on the other side of the road by the sea in December 2020 I was looking at the hotel and noticed a lady in the middle top window she looked like she was in big red dress but an old dress looking down at the road I look at my boyfriend then looked back and she was gone.
