A WIGWAM, miniature fairground and roulette table were among the lost and found items in a budget hotel chain across Warrington.

The 2021 Travelodge Lost and Found audit has revealed some of the unusual treasures left behind by customers in its 582 UK hotels, including those in Warrington, over the last year.

A personalised monopoly board, a ship made from matchsticks and a wedding tiara were also among the lost property in Travelodge's across Warrington.

At Widnes Travelodge, a stained glass window was left behind while at Northwich Lostock Gralam a wizard’s robe made its way into the lost and found office.

With the staycation being a top holiday choice in 2021, Travelodge hotel staff have reported a significant rise in items being left behind in their hotels over the last 12 months.

Some of the interesting finds from further afield include a suitcase full of Blackpool rock left behind by a guest from the Scottish Highlands at Blackpool South Promenade Travelodge, a large jar labelled ‘Brighton Sea Air’ at Brighton Seafront Travelodge and a dress made out of postcards at Bournemouth Seafront Travelodge.

The 2021 Travelodge Lost & Found audit has also revealed a growing trend of wedding-related items being left behind by brides, grooms and wedding guests across the company’s UK hotels.

A newlywed couple staying at Birmingham Airport Travelodge were in such a rush to get to the airport to catch their honeymoon flight to Dubai that they left behind their Nikah Nama, their Islamic marriage certificate.

A bridesmaid staying at Liverpool Exchange Street Travelodge had the important job of bringing the bride’s pet lovebirds, Will & Kate, to the ceremony which she forgot, due to being too focused on her ‘bad hair day’.

Luckily, the hotel manager managed to get Will & Kate to the wedding on time for the vital ceremony.

Beloved pets still remain a firm favourite on the Travelodge Lost & Found inventory report.

The 2021 audit includes a cute Pomsky dog called Beyoncé being left behind at Manchester Central Travelodge.

Beyoncé’s owner thought her sister had put Beyoncé into her car seat and they only realised when they were 50 miles into their journey back to Leamington Spa.

The owner of a miniature horse called Red Rum was beside herself when she got home and realised that she had forgotten her horsebox at Cockermouth Travelodge car park housing Red Rum.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokesperson said: “This year’s Lost & Found audit includes a rise in holiday themed items, wedding props, precious sentimental items, smart gadgets and beloved pets.

“This includes a DJI Phantom 4 Drone, a Pomsky called Beyoncé, a 5ft wedding cake piñata, a GT V8 Bentley convertible car and even Cinderella’s shoe.

“When it comes to why so many of our customers forget their treasured items, it’s basically due to us all being time poor, juggling multiple tasks and being in a hurry to get from A to B.

“In the rush, valuable possessions are easily forgotten.”

All items left behind in Travelodge hotels which have not been claimed within three months are donated to the local British Heart Foundation Charity Shops, Travelodge’s nominated charity partner.
