Where would you find over £300-worth of money-saving coupons, a large collection of Swarovski animal ornaments, three cases of Moët champagne and a set of personalised weight scales?

The answer is that they have all been found in the Lost & Found offices of Travelodge hotels in Milton Keynes.

Other items, all left in the company’s three Milton Keynes hotels, include a Tiffany diamond engagement ring, a Steiff teddy bear worth £200, a collection of rose bushes and a business proposal for a well-known brand.

Anything left behind in Travelodge hotels which is not claimed within three months is donated to local charity shops.

The most popular items to be left behind are chargers for mobile phones and other electronic devices, mobile phones, books, laptops, clothes, toiletry bags, teddy bears, electric toothbrushes, bags, suitcases and sat navs.

Travelodge spokesman Shakila Ahmed said: “As a result of Travelodge changing for a new modern look and feel, more new business customers and families have been staying across our 500 UK hotels.

“Therefore, this year’s lost & found inventory list has revealed some new unique items being left behind, such as a Coutts cheque book,an antique dolls house, a child’s Porsche car, a Star Wars Storm Trooper outfit and a feng shui aquarium.

“Our 2014 left behind register also revealed how much smart technology has become a part of our everyday lives, as we have had 12,000 tablets and smartphones left behind in our hotels in the last 12 months. This is a significant increase from previous years.

“What is becoming evident after speaking to our customers is that the pace of life has become so fast and we are so eager to get from A to B that valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”
