The hotel’s current owner Sherry Shelton claims the building is haunted by a ghost named Mary and that she has seen Mary out of the corner of her eye.
The ghost is thought to be Mary Cameron, the original owner of the Temperance Boardinghouse. It was built in 1899, and demolished in 1937 to make way for the Foveaux Hotel.
Mary is said to haunt room 2 of the hotel and is “a friendly ghost”.
