Phantom of the Rose and Crown Guilford WA
« on: November 14, 2017, 05:09:50 PM »
Old hotels are always the creepy? Apparently spirits of convicts and former publicans roam the corridors of the Rose & Crown in Guildford. Itís also said thereís a remorseful ghost called Charlie who in his former life as a human caught his wife cheating and murdered her in the hotel.

Is there any truth to the ghostly yarns of the old pub? Or just an urban myth as it seems every old pub have their ghosts but is there any truth to the stories of spooks who haunt this ancient alcohol watering hole.

To be continued.....

looking through old newspapers I can find not historical reference to such a murder. Some times pubs are struggling these days especially older historical country pubs and there seems a need to add color to such pubs by having their resident ghost....

Even if he or she never existed.....

But strange enough stories persist that the pub is haunted. One such visitor claimed he was talking to an old fella down in downstairs cellar bar chatting away and he looked away drinking his beer for second and went to say some thing back to him, discovering with shock he was gone vanished.....

Yet it appears there was only one exit and he was insight of the exit at all times and never say anyone leave? He was so stunned he asked couple sharing drinks together nearby They looked blankly and said he was by there by himself. And it was his first beer!

You can see pictures of the Down stairs bar below, Those guests who cannot then I suggest signing up to this wonderful forum. You will get to see some amazing pictures of places and people connected to haunted locations through out Australia.
