The Ettington Park Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, England
England is known to have many ghosts, so when you hear of a hotel that is supposedly the most haunted in all of Britain, you can be sure that ghosts pack the hotel. The Ettington Park Hotel is the hotel one of those unfortunate places. The origins of the hotel reach to the years when William the Conqueror was around. If you look into the number of deaths that occurred in the hotel since a thousand years from its establishment, then you’ll know that there is going to be many ghosts that will be around in the hotel after dark.
The experiences that people have talked about are hearing disembodied voices, seeing floating candles, a grey lady that haunts the stairs where she supposedly fell and died a long time ago, an officer from the army patrolling the grounds, and an older woman dressed in Victorian-era clothing walking around the conservatory. The hotel, having a reputation for being very haunted, was used for the horror movie The Haunting for one of its locations.
The Stanley Hotel in Colorado, United States of America
If you’ve watched the horror film The Shining, then you’ll recognize the Stanley Hotel. The hotel was what inspired the book that Stephen King wrote and which was the movie’s source material. The hotel had its opening in 1907, and as far as its history goes, people have known the hotel for having spooky occurrences that happen during the night. There is a ghost that you may spot in room 217, which is someone who used to be a housekeeper that worked at the hotel. In the hotel’s lobby, you might be lucky enough to get a look at the founder of the hotel or his wife. Legends say that the spooky kids that were featured in the movie took inspiration from childish giggling that is often heard near room 418. There are reports of children playing outside the door of the room. Stephen King has said that he heard a little boy’s ghost inside of the room.
The Q Station in Sydney, Australia
The Q Station was a quarantine station built for Spanish influenza, typhoid, smallpox, and the bubonic plague, which makes it a place that is bound to have a lot of deaths surrounding it. The quarantine station was built in 1833 to keep migrants that just arrived away from the public since they could be a carrier of a contagious disease. Almost six hundred people have died in the station ever since it was built up to the end of its operation. All of the deaths here make it a place of concentrated supernatural activity. The quarantine station was turned into a heritage site and hotel. Even if the buildings have been repurposed, there have been numerous experiences that people have shared. Some of the occurrences include seeing nurses, a mortician wearing a top hat, and a few specters during the darkness of the night.
