Considered the most haunted hotel in Sheffield, we caught up with Melanie, the bar manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Mosborough Hall Hotel, to hear all about her spooky experiences while working at the hotel.
She tells us about the ‘White Lady’ whose story dates back to the late 1600’s. As a governess at the Hall, the lady fell pregnant by the squire, who refused to give her money and a cottage to live. She threatened to tell his wife, and on visiting her room talk through their situation, he murdered her by slitting her throat, leaving her spirit to haunt the Darcy Suite for years to come.
Melanie tells the story of the radio mysteriously switching itself off whenever she cleaned the room and guests and staff at the hotel have reported an uneasy feeling when they enter the room. It is always cold, even when the heating is turned up, and reports of ghostly white figures have been reported.
As a Halloween ‘treat’ the breakfast presenters from Peak FM will be broadcasting a live show, and spending the night in the haunted room!
Would you dare?
