I had never believed in or experienced the paranormal until I spent a night at the Rydges Hotel in Hobart. This was 15 years ago and I still get goose bumps when I think about it. As a seasoned business traveller, I’ve slept in over 1000 hotel/motel rooms in over 20 countries over the last 20 years. Never had a problem getting to sleep, even in a noisy room.
I arrived around 5pm, checked in as normal. Only thing I noticed was the hotel was empty and lacking patrons. And the building had a drab exterior that resembled a 1950’s primary school. The interior had the look and feeling of an old hospital. I dined out as this was my first time in Hobart. I returned around 10pm, had a shower and lied in bed. Tried to get to sleep but couldn’t. There was was an eirie feeling in the room. Someone or something was in the room with me. I didn’t see or hear anything, but I could sense I was not alone. I remember eventually falling asleep around 4am. Never again will I stay there.
That was my one and only experience.
