One of Travelodge's newest hotels opened in Lakeside in October last year and already some unusual items have been left behind and discovered by staff.

Among them area a spray tanning machine, an orange Celine handbag, a CEO’s CV and a trunk full of Vogue magazines spanning more than 30 years

Somebody obviously had a romantic evening after one hotel room was also found to be covered long stem red roses.

This comes after Travelodge has revealed some of the more interesting items left behind in its 542 UK hotels during the last 12 months. 

Nicola Williamson Hotel Manager at Thurrock Lakeside Travelodge "Annually hundreds of thousands of customers stay in our hotels across Essex and we do get a number of interesting items left behind.

"During the last few months the more unusual items to be left behind at Thurrock Lakeside include an at home tanning machine, a trunk full of Vogue magazines and a room full of long stem red roses."    

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge Spokeswoman said: “With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 542 UK Travelodge hotels, for a wide variety of reasons, we do get some interesting items being left behind. 

"The running theme our customers do tell us, is that the pace of modern life is so fast & furious that time is off the essence especially when getting from A to B and  therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”
