A GLASS eye, a celebratory cake, a diamon ring and tickets for a cruise are just some of the items left behind in Southampton Travelodges last year.

The UK budget hotel brand, Travelodge, has revealed some of the interesting items left behind in its 571 hotels during 2019.

In Southampton, they include a Mr & Mrs decorative light, a Gucci holdall and a Chanel passport cover.

Other items handed in at the Southampton hotels are a miniature replica of the HMS Victory ship, a business contract and a wedding message in a bottle.

But the most bizzar items left behind are a glass eye, tickets for a cruise and a three tiered Christening cake.

Travelodge has two hotels in Southampton on Lodge Road and Castle Way.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge Spokeswoman said: “With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 571 UK hotels, including four in September, for thousands of different reasons, we do get a range of interesting items left behind. This year’s audit includes: a pair of Alpacas called Ant & Dec, a 65 year old luck Bonsai tree, an Aston Martin, a dissertation, a gingerbread village with residents and a precious 20 year old celebrity autograph book.”

“Interestingly our hotel teams have reported a rise in wedding and proposal props being left behind in our hotels in 2019. This included a 5ft floral unicorn, a huge full moon, a flower wall, palm trees, a Tiffany engagement ring and even a best man”

“As we have more business customers staying in our hotels than ever before, we are seeing a continuous rise in important business papers, valuable items and lucky charms being left behind in our hotels. This includes a 65 year old lucky Bonsai tree that has been passed down three generations, important business documentation and a brand new identity artwork.”

“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.”
