Great find Jordan.  Phone cameras and Apps, just another piece of technology to muddy the waters:)

A PHOTOGRAPH of a ghostly figure weeping in a hotel mirror has been dubbed a fake by News.com.au readers.

The image of a young girl was reported to have been taken by “hysterical” guests at the Ramada Hotel in Watford in England, who immediately reported the sighting to hotel staff.

The room was said to have been locked by hotel bosses after seeing the spine-tingling image, so no one else could stay there, The Sun reports.

But News.com.au readers say the photo was created by an iPhone application, which allows users to place ghostly images into photographs taken by the phone.

“This is fake – it’s the ghost creation program on the iPhone,” Gary posted.

Another post by Damian said: “Okay, that picture’s been made using an iPhone application. Second time I've seen photo's from that application being used on news stories.”

Others said the image was part of a publicity stunt by the hotel.

A hotel guest was reported to have seen the couple flee from the hotel after photographing the ghost.

"The couple went to reception and were hysterical,” the guest said.

"They were upset and said the image of the child was crying and crying and it was moving in the mirror. The guest was properly shaken."

An investigation has been launched and hotel staff are being interviewed to see if the have witnessed spooky occurrences in room No 307.

A spokesman for the hotel group said: "We have to be careful because we do not want to upset people, so we have closed off the room to check that there is nothing untoward there.

"We have to investigate it. Anyone coming in is not given that room until we have done our full investigation.

"We are speaking to housekeeping to see if there is anything that would support what has been said by the guest."

He added: "We are quite confident there is nothing untoward."

this kind of technology is making it harder for us to tell what is real or fake!!

"We have to investigate it. Anyone coming in is not given that room until we have done our full investigation."

The simple way to test the issue is to get the hotel manager to spend a few nights in that room?

The real problem with any hotel or inn haunting is the nature of the building itself. 

There are often floors between floors used by staff, there are powerful HVAC systems that can produce unusual sounds.... the list goes on.

Even in sites that have more credible evidence, Hotels are  pain to investigate.
