Sadly, all I remember is one scene:

  • There's a guy in a room inside an old mansion.
  • He meets a young beauty and has sex with her.
  • When he wakes up there's a mummy/old hag lying beside him.

I think he's in the mansion with a group of people.

The genre is maybe comedy/horror and made in the 1980s-90s.

Hopefully, someone can shed some light on this matter.

Another user, @AndrewThompson, suggested some good edits to your post. I added my two bits to that, plus a few tags. And I think it works :-) Always nice to keep questions concise and easy to read. – rumandwrite Mar 15 '14 at 10:06
@rumandwrite Your edit is excellent. The question is very clear now. :) – Andrew Thompson Mar 15 '14 at 10:07
I know this is not what you're looking for (hence a comment instead of an A), but I think it's worth mentioning that Kubrick's The Shining has a rather similar scene. (Go to youtube and look for the shining bathroom scene.) – OpaCitiZen Mar 16 '14 at 13:55
Also unlikely what you are searching, but maybe relevant: The British comedy/mystery show “Misfits“ has an episode where a young guy sleeps with a girl, which during sex turns out to be an old woman. – atticae Mar 16 '14 at 23:30

High Spirits (1988) - Movie Poster

High Spirits (1988)

Edited from the LA Times, here's a synopsis:

An impoverished Lord, Peter Plunkett desperately tries to save his bankrupt patrimony by converting his castle into a ghostly theme park with banshees on pulleys and servants under sheets.

Like you said, there were others at the castle:

Sharon, married to a charming nebbish Jack, is one of the customers on the unveiling of Plunkett's haunts. The others include a yowling parapsychologist, his flaky wife and a kitten-voiced sexpot, her eye on a hapless Catholic novitiate.

Now the real fun begins:

The turn of the screwball here is that the castle is actually haunted by a troubled 200-years-dead couple, trapped in a nightly re-enactment of their murderous nuptials.

Jack meets and falls in love with one of the "real" ghosts, Mary. Here she is in "youthful" times:
