The last segment is about Charlotte the ghost who walks the hallways of Nottingham Road Hotel. 

The story of Charlotte dates back to the Second Anglo-Boer War. Charlotte was associated with the hotel either as a guest or employee and jumped from the second-storey building in 1902.

While Charlotte is by no means evil or sinister, she often entertains guests. She once moved a guest’s facecloth from the bathroom to the bed and unpacked a guest’s suitcase.
