Life Size Harry Styles Cut-Out And Toupee Among Items Left At Isle Of Wight Travelodge Sites

Have you misplaced your life size Harry Styles cut-out, vintage Punch and Judy puppets or toupee recently?

They are just some of the intriguing items left behind at Travelodge's Isle of Wight hotels over the last 12 months.

With millions of people annually staying in a Travelodge hotel across the length and breadth of the UK, detailed below are some of the unusual treasures that have been left behind at the company’s hotels in Ryde and Newport. 

During the past 12 months, Travelodge hotel staff have also seen an increasing number of wedding items and gifts being left behind at Travelodge hotels.

The hotel team at Liverpool Central Strand Travelodge received plenty of cheers when they crossed the city to save a bride’s day, when the Best Man forgot to take the five tier Liverpool Football Club themed wedding cake to the wedding reception.

Other interesting items that made the Travelodge 2022 Lost & Found inventory report include a ball gown belonging to a well-known Instagrammer made out of the 54 Commonwealth countries at Birmingham Bullring Travelodge.

A car from London was sent to pick up the dress a few days later.   

The hotel team at Manchester Piccadilly Travelodge got quite a fright when they found a 2-metre large Longwu Chinese dragon smiling at them when they entered room eight.

One guest staying at Bath Central Travelodge forgot her pair of adorable Japanese Chin puppies called JLo and Ben.

The customer thought her husband had taken the pooches as they were travelling in separate cars.

When she got home to Cheshire she realised their mistake and her husband had to drive back immediately to collect the pups.   

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge Spokeswoman said:

“With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 580 UK Travelodge hotels, including our hotels in Isle of Wight for thousands of different reasons, we do get a range of interesting items left behind.

During 2022, this included vintage Punch and Judy puppets, a toupee, a box of Platinum Jubilee crown bunting and table runners and a rainforest terrarium.”

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.
