Savoy Hotel

Mussoorie, India

The Savoy Hotel is famed because it inspired Agatha Christie for her first book, The Mysterious Affair at Styles; which has all the elements of a classical horror story. The inspiration is based on the mysterious death of Lady G Ormsby, who is said to roam the rooms and corridors of the hotel, seeking justice; as on the investigation of her death, it was uncovered that she was poisoned with cyanide; but her murderer was never caught, presumably leaving the spirit at distress.

Although the hotel offers excellent service to its guest, but the attraction is on the haunted-ness of the hotel.

Travellers in quest of adventure do visit the hotel hoping for an encounter with the spirit, as it’s a well know fact that Lady G Ormsby was a spiritualist (psychic) who specialized in séances and crystal-gazing, locals believe that her abilities in the mortal world were taken away with her in the afterlife, making the lore more thick which is time and again supported by the travellers claiming to have encountered the ghost of Lady G Ormsby.

The tales of the haunting grows stronger yet, attracting numerous travellers who visit expecting, perhaps a whisper or a gush; as sightings of an apparition (floating silhouette) are also a sensation further yet drawing more travellers to the fascination.
