There are many other spooky stories about the inn like such as the man who walks through the bathroom wall in ‘The Fleur de Lys’ room, crosses past the bed to disappear near the opposite wall or maybe you accidentally stumble into ‘The Elizabethan Chamber’ where bottles have been reported to fall off the shelves or the man who sits on occupied beds in ‘The Hawkhurst Suite’.
