Searching For The Name Of An Old PC Game

I played this game many years ago on a Windows XP operating system (though it might not have been made for that) and have been searching for it on and off for around a year. I estimate it was a game from late 1990s early 2000s.

What I remember:

-The protagonist was female wearing a victorian style dress (I think her hair was pulled back in a bun)
- It was third-person
- It reminded me a little of Mystery of the Druids atmosphere-wise.
- It was located in a hotel or similar (can't be sure)
- I remember there were lots of doors in the first area and I had to talk to other residents of the building to gather more information, but a lot of the doors were closed and when you tried to listen in it would tell you in text that there was whispering but you couldn't hear what the people were saying.
- In the hallway outside the main characters room there was a closed (and locked) door with a pool of blood seeping out from underneath.
- I think at some point towards the end there was a secret passage you had to access and you had to find your way around an enemy (someone in a straight-jacket?). Eventually I think this led to a series of cells with other straight-jacketed people. The idea was that someone was performing experiments on them and I think there was something about a lobotomy though all this could be me mixing games.
- The game was basically played by collecting items/evidence. Items could interact with other items. I don't remember if there was any combat but if there was, it was very little. The focus was the investigation. There was an order to things with you having to collect certain items or information before you could interact with areas/evidence you've seen before.


That's about all I can remember and I played it so long ago I could very well be mixing games. The blood under the door thing and character appearance are the most definite memories I have. Any help finding this game would be much appreciated.

    You could try looking thru this list and seeing if any names ring a bell:

    Or the longest journey maybe?
