AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In every room, there is a story.

In this hotel, the stories run to the wicked and macabre.

Well-crafted psychological and supernatural horror offerings await you, each written by a master storyteller.

Whether you are looking to be shocked, disturbed, or out-right frightened, we have something to titillate your nerves and make your hair stand up on end.

Leave the lights on and brew a strong cup of tea, the voices in the room plan on keeping you up all night.'
