Hotel reveals bizarre items left in town's rooms

THE lost property box at Travelodge hotels in the town has been bulging with bizarre items in the last year as bosses have revealed a golf GPS range finder, an emerald necklace and an anxiety coat for a dog are among the weirdest things left behind by guests.

The list also includes an engine jump starter left at the chain’s Gemini hotel.

Across the UK nearly 10,000 tablets and smartphones have been left in rooms over the last 12 months as well as a set of exclusive trial yoghurt flavours that have not been launched to the public, a £5,000 Vera Wang wedding dress and a pet tarantula called Hercules.

A spokesman confirmed all items which have not been claimed within three months are donated to nearby charity shops.

Are those objects really that weird? An artificial leg would be an odd thing to leave, but a necklace? A dog coat? Slow news day I guess.

I'm sure the charity shop will be thrilled at getting a tarantula. The 10,000 tablets and smartphones could be sold at the next openair festival.

I think this makes very intresting news that such companies are guilty of THEFT!
the law states that found items, the finder must make reasonable efforts to find the owner. considering I have stayed in thousands of hotels, they all insisted on knowing who I was and what dates I intended staying...it wouldnt take sherlock holmes to work out the owner of any item left in a hotel room.

I hope the police are going to follow up on this confession from the travelodge

Quite right richiepoo - I suspect the hotel would have ben able to provide contact details if there had been damage or someone had waltzed off with a telly from a room.
