Ghost in Gurney Hotel Penang
A foreign tourists visit the hotel where they find strange and unexplainable things in their room.
A good friend of mine, Nigel and Martha, recently met up with me in Kuala Lumpur before leaving for Penang. They book a suite at the Gurney Hotel in Penang, the room was spacious and nice but the support staffs were inefficient and unfriendly.

Nigel and Martha planned to spend several days there before flying off to Pulau Langawi. During the trip in Penang, they plan to spend some time in Gurney Drive, the Botanical Garden, Penang Hill and the famous Kek Lok Si temple.

The first night in the hotel, everything was fine, except the neighbouring rooms were filled with kids’ playing and laughter. Nigel was annoyed that the parents’ seem to let the kids (probably spoilt and pampered) make so much noise without caring about their neighbours. Martha reasoned that they kids were probably off for their school holidays. Nigel did not want to spoilt their time in Penang and did not say further.
One night after spending time strolling and having their meal at Gurney Drive, they went back to their hotel room, they notice something odd about their room. Their entire room seemed to fill up with the kids’ laughter and they looked at each curiously.
“Good Graciously Me!” Martha yelled out as she skipped and face their bed, and on their bed were several blackish smoky “things” jumping up and down. Nigel grabbed his wife and they just stared speechless at the freakish apparition jumping on their bed. Luckily, the strange jumping apparition simply disappeared.
Nigel and Martha stormed down to the reception and demanded an explanation! The night manager and maintenance staff went up to their suite but found nothing. The night manager was however apologetic and was willing to change to their room.
What did Nigel and Martha actually saw…..guess we will not know.
