Hi there! Have just returned home from a wonderful holiday with my daughter at Porthcawl...We visited The Museum where a male Guide there recommended your helpful unfailing hospitality in the Ghost experiences at your Pub. He said you would show us the haunted accommodation that Spirits reside in. Is this true please?
