GGGGGHOSTS 0F THE ROYAL HOTEL?.
you may or may not believe in things that go bump in the night, but I believe that every old building has an energy, be it good bad , and on exploring the empty rattling old ROYAL HOTEL in 2001, 9 yrs ago , it was an eerie experience. If ever a building had a spirit its the ROYAL HOTEL GRAHAMSTOWN THAMES NZ , and it was a spirit to SURVIVE!
Below are a few orb photos taken at the ROYAL HOTEL, they of course could just be dust, you make up your own mind.
An odd thing happened, friends whilst looking over the ROYAL HOTEL THAMES NZ in January 2009,were aware of something in a top front window, ( Brown Street) so got out their camera and took photos of the Hotel window in question. When I received the photos and looked over them I was very surprised to see the face in the front veranda window( Williamson St.,) of a old fashioned mustached gentleman, and the odd distinct orb a..'curiouser and curiouser said Alice'
The orb window can be verified by the broken piece askew at the bottom sash.
These photos above are all taken with the same camera, at the same time on the same day. of the same front window...I have lighten the pic on right to show orb...
the day was overcast.

On a trip through to GRAHAMSTOWN THAMES NZ on the 19th Sept., 2009 I had the opportunity to take more photos of the ROYAL HOTEL GRAHAMSTOWN and the work in progress.
Its coming along very well indeed-Jimmy Pattillo kindly gave us free rein to wander around inside/outside the building, we took various pics of the atmospheric corridors and was very surprised to find these orbs in corridor off main foyer below, these were the only ones this time, but beauties!
I had been admiring the beautiful kauri ceilings of this gorgeous Historic building, never dreaming I had company, maybe Carl?
