GHOST HUNT AT THE STATION HOTEL
AS SEEN ON LIVING TV'S MOST HAUNTED!!
Partially opened in the late 19th Century before being unveiled as a luxurious new hotel in 1910, The Station Hotel in Dudley is one of those buildings that invokes the old adage, 'if only walls could talk.'
Originally designed to complement the grand Opera House which stood opposite, the Hotel played its part in the dawning of the 20th Century. However, when the Opera House burnt down in 1933, the decision was made to demolish the hotel and rebuild. And so, in 1936, as the new, modern 'Dudley Hippodrome' was unveiled, The Station Hotel once more opened its doors to theatre-goers and performers.
It is during this era of Dudley's Station Hotel that many stars of film and stage swept through her rooms and corridors, Laurel and Hardy, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Johnnie Ray all stayed there while performing at the Hippodrome. It is also said that George Formby performed from his balcony to crowds below while staying at the hotel.
From the day it was opened until present day the hotel has been surprisingly popular with the spirit world, with many residents opting to stay on even after death. The sheer wealth of paranormal activity experienced in the hotel has led to many investigations being carried out and in 2003 to Living TV's 'Most Haunted' programme filming there. The episode in question saw perhaps the most compelling footage in the show's history when a locked off camera caught a bed and chair moving by themselves in the notorious Room 214. This is a room in which guests have woken at night to find themselves being watched over by a ghostly figure. Staff have also seen children running through this and other rooms along what is known as 'the haunted corridor', before disappearing into the wall.
It is also rumoured that a gruesome murder took place on the premises in the early part of the 20th Century. Most Haunted's Derek Acorah elaborated on this by claiming that the body of the victim was put into a beer barrel and rolled out through the cellar chute before being buried at the front of the building somewhere. If this is true, it might explain the sense of foreboding and unexplainable fear that many people feel in the cellar, and why many staff refuse to go down there alone. On an Eerie Evening at The Station Hotel you will test your nerve in this expansive and terrifying cellar area as it will be one of the main vigil areas.
A shadowy past and undiscovered secrets await you at Dudley's Station Hotel. You might even be lucky enough to have the dubious privilege of staying in Room 214...
