Mercure Farnham Bush Hotel
The Borough, Farnham, Waverley
With a history stretching back over 400 years, the Bush Hotel is a former coaching inn. There is some evidence it was an alehouse as far back as the 13th century. One of the bedrooms at the hotel exhibits ghostly manifestations including an elderly woman with grey hair. She is dressed in old-fashioned servant’s clothing and her purpose seems to be to tidy things up as she moves clothing and other items belonging to guests. She also makes an appearance when people are having special occasions and her most frequent manifestation happens when brides are getting ready for the big day at the hotel. She appears from behind a closed door and glances either approvingly or disapprovingly at the bride before she disappears.
