You will be staying at what is considered to be the MOST HAUNTED hotel in the Midlands.
The Station Hotel is notorious with ghost hunters and locals alike and has more than a few stories to tell!
TV's Most Haunted visited here in 2003 and since then countless paranormal groups have stepped through it's doors in search of supernatural phenomena...and they get it!
With a history of suicide, murder and criminality is it any wonder that these walls retain palpable connections to the past?
The Station Hotel circa 1900, before modernisation to the frontage
Sitting at the foot of the imposing castle, on Castle Hill, The Station Hotel was opened on 28th May 1898 as a result of the railway station appearing in Dudley in 1850. The building was originally black and white with stables and an inner courtyard.
Opposite the Station Hotel, the Opera House was opened in 1899 which saw high society frequent the town, many staying at the prestigious Station hotel. When the Opera House tragically burned down in 1933 it was replaced by the Dudley Hippodrome which opened it's doors in 1936. Once more theatrical life was breathed into the hotel and to accommodate the growing numbers of guests it was extended and modernised. The perfect glamorous location for stars of stage and screen to stay whilst performing at the Hippodrome, its bedrooms have played host to the likes of Bob Hope, Laurel and Hardy, Frank Sinatra and George Formby. Due to its growing success and upper class reputation, the hotel was extended further in the 1960s with the addition of a cocktail bar upstairs and another downstairs in the ballroom.
