Peter Underwood mentioned in his book "Ghosts of Cornwall":
...."Jamaica Inn certainly has an atmosphere. It is reputed to be over
five hundred years old and still contains some of the original walls of
local granite, in places six feet thick: it is possible for past events
to impregnate these old stones that must have seen smugglers and
wreckers in past days? Even today there is a brooding atmosphere."
"A few years ago a couple reported seeing a ghost in their bedroom when
they spent one night at the inn. Shortly after falling asleep they awoke
to see a man standing by the bedroom door, the last room on the right in
the upstairs corridor. He seemed to be wearing a three-cornered hat and
a long, old-fashioned, tight-waisted overcoat. As they watched he slowly
moved past the end of the bed and disappeared through a large wardrobe.
Both witnesses said the room was icy cold while the figure was visible.
Next morning, when they related their experience to the landlord, he did
not seem in the least surprised and merely said: The old boy always goes
through the wardrobe when he returns to that room."
