Was our hotel haunted?

During our stay at the Riviera hotel in Sandown on the Isle of Wight, my husband and  I had a strange experience in the room we were staying in. During our week's stay there (September 2009 )I bought 2 small gifts and left them in their paper bag in a carrier bag.When i went to look for them later, one had disappeared. After searching the room I found it in a handbag in the wardrobe. This handbag had not ben used the whole holiday and I could not explain how it had got there. 
The last night of our stay I was awoken in the early hours of the morning by a rustling of a carrier bag being moved as if someone was looking in it. The carrier bag had been placed on the spare bed next to ours. I switched the light on and the sound stopped.The carrier bag hadn't moved and nothing had fallen over inside it. I took a picture of the area straight after the incident. After studying the photograph and zooming in I noticed what appears to be a number of orbs around the door area near the carrier bag.
Does anyone know of any other strange things that has happened in this hotel?
