It’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right to a frightfully exciting and spooky encounter for guests at Mercure hotels this Halloween. With a selection of spook-tacularly grand, historical and charming hotels situated across the UK, Mercure has something for everyone, whether it be at one of its 16th century restored buildings with exteriors petrified at the point of peak beauty, or within the sprawling grounds of English countryside strewn with ghostly tales unique to their varying landscapes.
Spot ‘The Grey Lady’ at Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel
The elegant, Victorian, 4-star Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel is located in the heart of Exeter, one of the most haunted cities in Britain. Steeped in history, Exeter is strongly connected to things that go bump in the night; in locations such as the Cathedral Green and Martins Lane, there have been many claimed sightings of Exeter’s ghosts. Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel is no exception to these claims, where there have been sightings of ‘The Grey Lady’, sometimes seen walking up the grand staircases in the small hours. Set within an elegant Victorian building, the hotel still has all the old charms of its original features, and its stylish and spacious bedrooms make for an unforgettable and ‘faboolous’ stay but be sure to look out for The Grey Lady on your way to bed! Prices start from £107 for a Standard Single Room.
Stay in one of Stratford-upon-Avon’s most historic buildings, the Mercure Stratford upon Avon Shakespeare Hotel
This stunning 4-star Tudor hotel is located right in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon in one of the most historic buildings in town. Guests staying at the hotel might also catch a glimpse of some spooky paranormal activity in the middle of the night, including the ghost of an elderly man rumoured to have been seen wandering the corridors. The hotel is also allegedly haunted by the ghost of a girl named Lucy, who now occupies a certain room in the hotel. Perfect for crisp autumnal days or a quintessentially ‘bootiful’ British weekend away, guests can enjoy afternoon tea and tipples in The Lounge before falling into a slumber in front of the real log fires. Prices start from £84 for a Classic Double or Twin Room.
Spend the night in the 700-year-old mansion, the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa
This 175-room, 700-year-old mansion house is the setting for a tragic love story, rumoured to be haunted by the ghost of a young French woman, Lucette, who threw herself into the river due to a tragic romance with her army officer lover. Paranormal activities around the hotel are said to have been heightened around Christmas time, when Lucette haunts the scene of her unfortunate love. For those looking for a haunt-free break this Halloween – avoiding the mysterious Lucette – this is the perfect stay, relaxing and enjoying the iconic Lancashire countryside. Prices start from £97 for a Classic Single Room.
