The bizarre reason for a hotel room that appeared ‘blood soaked’ in horrific images may have been solved.
Images posted to social media showed a room in the Adelphi hotel, Liverpool, with sheets covered in a dark red substance.
Rebecca Hill was checking into the room when she was met with piles of hay and a bath filled with water last Friday.
Baffled Rebecca, 42, said the scene was like something from a horror movie when she entered the room and it hadn’t been cleaned for her stay, reports the Liverpool Echo.
She said: “I opened the door and I was faced with this box thing on the floor that looked like it had hay in it.
“As I looked around, the room was an absolute state.
“There was hay in the corner on the floor, and to me what looked like rabbit droppings to be honest. It was all over the place.
“Empty bottles empty cans. Food cartons all over the floor.”
However worse was to come as Rebecca approached the unmade bed and claims she found blood smeared all over the sheets.
She said: “I went into the bathroom and opened the door slowly because I thought oh my god, is there going to be somebody in here?
“The bath was full to the brim with water and there was more hay in the corner and what looked to me like rabbit droppings.
“It was awful, absolutely awful.”
Horrified ECHO readers believe they have discovered the reason behind the state of the room with some saying that a person must have stayed there with a rabbit.
On Facebook, a number of people gave their reasons as to why they thought that.
Anna Murray explained that rabbit urine could be a dark red or orange colour and it might not have been blood on the bed.
She said: “Looks like someone had a rabbit living there.
“The ‘blood’ on the bed actually looks like rabbit urine.
“It is an orange/red colour..”
Robyn Quirk also said: “It looks like someone was living there with a rabbit.
“Rabbit urine can be red/orange if they have too many greens.
“Still not acceptable at all. Where’s the rabbit?”
When Rebecca told staff about the state of the room she was offered an apology and upgraded to another room.
Rebecca claims: “When I came back the guy who sorted the room for me said the manager had put something aside for you.
“He then came back with this bottle of prosecco. I said, oh thanks.”
Reluctant to stay any longer in the hotel but feeling stuck as she had already paid, Rebecca took her bottle of prosecco and went to her new room.
She said: “Before I went to sleep I pushed a set of draws up against the door because I felt that nervous about it.”
Adding: “I’ve never ever in my life come face to face with that. I mean, I’ve stayed in some dives in the past but that was beyond belief.
“I can’t actually believe that happened – I was shaking with the shock of it.”
The ECHO approached Britannia, the owners of the Adelphi hotel, for comment but did not receive a reply ahead of publication.
