The Station Hotel in Dudley is arguably the most haunted hotel in the West Midlands. With a long history of reported phenomena and apparitions, a ghost hunt here is a must. The dark, expansive cellars are an unwelcoming experience and we have seen so much activity on ghost hunts here that we always leave feeling exhausted and often frightened. Many people have run from Room 214 in fear and refused to return even for their belongings. Join the team for an overnight ghost hunt at The Station Hotel in search of the truth behind its hauntings.
Your Ghost Hunt At The Station Hotel
The Station Hotel in Dudley is undoubtedly one of the most haunted hotels in the UK. With a long history of reported ghostly happenings and tales of murder, suicide and adultery, this sinister and spooky old hotel is a must for any ghost hunter.
Due to the misplacement of records it is impossible to research this location effectively, although we do know that in its heyday it was one of the most prestigious hotels in the Midlands. Built in 1898, the hotel complimented the Opera House across the road and during its time it has seen many iconic performers stay within its rooms, including Laurel & Hardy, Bob Hope & Bing Crosby.
Folklore tells of a hotel manager who enticed a servant girl into the cellar before murdering her after she spurned his advances and threatened to tell his wife. Her body is said to have been concealed in a barrel and removed from the building through the barrel drop
Ghosts of The Station Hotel
In 2003 Most Haunted visited the Station Hotel in Dudley and reported some very strange and unnerving experiences.
During an ‘all ladies’ vigil in Room 217, the team witnessed some unexplained light phenomena and in the now infamous Room 214, a locked-off camera captured the chair beside the window as it moved by itself. Guests have fled the bedrooms in terror and refused to return and Poltergeist activity within the cellars and restaurant is a common occurrence.
On a recent ghost hunt at The Station Hotel a coin was thrown in the cellar and heard to land, only to roll back in the darkness and return to the foot of the person who threw it.
History of The Station Hotel
Dudley or Duddeley as it used to be called, was predominately, a mining area. Dudley castle was situated on top of lime-stone workings. The whole area became known as “The Black Country” because of the mining and industrial trade, such as the chain mailing. Part of the chain used on the infamous
Titanic was made in Dudley.
The railway station opened in 1850, the main hotel at the time was called “The Castle”. In 1896 a meeting was called to discuss the building of a new hotel, which was to be known as “The Station Hotel”, the license was granted and Wolverhampton & Dudley brewery proposed the building be situated on the corner of Birmingham Road and Trindle Road.
