  • When Mary, the wife of William 3rd, initially came to England she stayed at this hotel although why she chose to stay here is a mystery. Witnesses have reported seeing her as a ghost in period dress and her carriage has been heard moving around in the courtyard outside. Between mid September and late November at 2am guests have been woken by a large clattering sound over the cobbles. A ghostly carriage arrives and a passenger alights and walks into the hotel. Witnesses have also seen another ghost described as ‘a nasty little man, rather like a jockey with an evil face’. Locals know him to have been a man called Darke Chase who had been an ostler at the Royal Castle.
