The Berystede Hotel is reputedly haunted by the ghost of Eliza Kleininger - a French maid to the Standish family that owned the hotel. According to Playfair, Eliza was killed in a fire that swept the hotel on 27th October 1886. Her charred remains were found at the foot of the servants staircase.
This is the area in which the apparition has been sighted.
