Travelodge staff share hotel guests' weirdest and most outlandish requests

Mirror Online Traveling 0 month ago

Hotel staff are no strangers to accommodating guests with requests, but usually this is limited to the likes of wake-up calls, tips on the local area or minor things like asking for extra towels.

However, once in a while, staff are faced with a guest whose request go beyond any logic or reason.

Now, Travelodge has revealed just how bizarre these encounters can be, as the hotel chain has called on its staff to share the weirdest request they have received this year.

There's everything from the quirky and comical to the downright ridiculous and bizarre. In some cases, we're a little worried for the person in question.

We're talking someone in search of 'wild haggis', a request to see the Northern Lights, and room transformations for proposals.

We take a look at some of the most outlandish requests below...

Weirdest hotel guest requests of 2019

Glasgow Central : Where can I see wild haggis?

Doncaster Lakeside : Can you tell the ducks to go to sleep, they are keeping me awake?

Fort William : Can you ensure the Northern Lights pass the hotel tonight?  [Side note, if the Northern Lights are on your bucket list there are some brilliant UK hotspots where you could see them].

The Northern Lights sadly don't appear at our beck and call

Leamington Spa : Can you arrange for a full moon to come to my room window at 10pm as I want to propose to my girlfriend in the moonlight?

Newcastle Quayside : Can you turn my room into a tropical island, I want to propose to my boyfriend – he’s a massive fan of Love Island?
