The Owain Glyndwr Hotel, Corwen


Named after Owain Glyndwr the great Welsh hero who had strong connections with Corwen, this is probably one of the oldest hotel buildings in Wales dating back to 1329. The building was originally a monastery attached to the church behind and later a coaching inn.

The haunting possibly dates back to this building's earliest period as it concerns the ghost of a lady who was left broken hearted after an affair with a monk.

Re: The Owain Glyndwr Hotel, Corwen

 I worked as a chef at this Hotel for a few years  1999 - 2002,  It is a beautiful building with the local river running under it (flood alert!)  and lots of twisty corridores.  
One late afternoon I was compiling some paperwork on the table opposite the main bar room door by the side of the arch that goes through to the dining room, when a large wolfhound trotted through the kitchen door & into the restaurant.  It turned it's head briefly to look at me as it went past & had a chain around it's neck.  My first though was 'who had left a door open, where did that come from'  type of thing & I got up to go into the dead-end restaurant to capture the loose dog only to find it not there. 
Noises, glimpses out of the corner of your eye & things moving were all part of working at the OG as well as an ace boss (Hi, Ifor!), great customers & good friends.  It could be a very spooky place especially when you're trying to find a member of staff in the labyrynth of bedrooms but also a very welcoming, comfortable place to be in.   Set directly in front of the local church I once had the fright of my life when looking out of the plate wash window to see a giant illuminated cross hanging in mid air!  The church had put up it's christmas decorations!!
