This Grade 2 listed hotel has stood in the heart of the city’s Old Town since 1751.

Parts of the hotel are medieval and, with its vaulted cellars and creaky passageways - a perfect location for ghost hunting.

The hotel’s most active ghost appears to be the apparition of a young chambermaid named, Molly.

The story goes that Molly killed herself after her affections were spurned by a cruel young man she fell in love with.

Molly has been witnessed wandering the halls of the hotel with her legs stuck below floor level.

Weary travellers have been well served here since 1617 including a royal visit by Charles 1. The warped wooden pillars as well as photos of bygone Andover add some

The olde worlde atmosphere is apparent here with warped wooden pillars and creaking doors.

Visitors are urged to look out for a tall green lady who can be seen gliding along an upstairs corridor in the dead of night.

A male companion has also been spotted here, the ghost has been described as "not quite white, but semi-transparent".

No one has ever discovered the identities of the two ghouls and it is not know why they haunt this hotel.
