AN engagement ring and a Siberian Husky are among the most bizarre items left behind by guests at Travelodge hotels across the UK.

The hotel chain, which has dozens of sites across the North-East and North Yorkshire, has revealed its full list of bizarre items left by guests in 2020.

Travelodge says that although some of its hotels have been shut due to Covid restrictions for some of the year, it hasn't stopped another year of lost items.

Shakila Ahmed of Travelodge UK said: “With millions of customers annually staying at our 563 UK hotels, we do get a range of interesting items left behind."

“Interestingly, as we kept some of our hotels open during both lockdowns to support local communities and provide accommodation for key workers, local authorities and for businesses that could travel for work we have seen a rise in items being left behind by medical professionals.

"This includes a stethoscope, scrubs, crocs and a nurse’s personal diary documenting their experience of working through the pandemic plus lots of personalised face masks.

"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.”
