Travelodge spokesperson, Shakila Ahmed, said: “With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 580 UK Travelodge hotels, for thousands of different reasons, we do get a range of interesting items left behind.

“During 2022, this included a portfolio of tattoo artwork, a three metre Longwu Chinese dragon, a replica of Queen Elizabeth’s state imperial crown, a pair of Segways, an LFC wedding cake and a pair of Japanese Chin puppies called JLo and Ben.”

“Interestingly the 2022 lost and found audit also revealed that we are a nation striving for a healthy lifestyle as we have seen a significant rise in smart watches being left behind in our Travelodge hotels during the last 12 months.

“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.”
