The Haunted Hotel Room!

19 September 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

Five years ago my wife and I decided to take a weekend break.  The hotel we chose was a hotel named the Barony Castle hotel on the outskirts of Peebles on the Scottish border. The hotel itself lay in acres of land surrounded by forest. While getting dressed for an evening meal. My wife was sat at the dressing table while I was standing by the bed, when suddenly the Television, which stood on the other side of the room,  switched itself on. It stayed on for a few minutes then switched itself off again. It did this about three times.

Neither my wife or myself felt fazed by this, until the following morning while we where checking out. The receptionist said to us,

“Oh, I see you where in the haunted room last night.

When we told her what had happened, she said the room was haunted by a maid who had once worked at the hotel. She said that others had reported being woken up by a lady who would stand at the bottom of the bed staring at them as they slept. Others had  had witnessed the TV switching on and off as we did.

We didn’t at anytime feel threatened in anyway, but in fact have visited the same hotel on many occasion.

The Barony castle hotel can be googled, and the story of the haunting is there for all to read.
