Jurgen Klopp cut-out, Queen painting and huge dragon left behind in Travelodge

Travelodge staff have revealed some of the bizarre items that guests have forgotten on staycations, including a life-size cut-out of Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp, an oil painting of the late Queen, and a dress made entirely from flags.

With nearly 19 million holidaymakers staying at Travelodge hotels each year, it's no surprise that there's quite an impressive range of weird and wonderful belongings left behind.

In 2022, Travelodge hotel staff found heaps of royal memorabilia – which isn't a huge surprise the year included the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in the summer, and her tragic passing a few months later.

In fact, the hotel chain says there were enough Union Jack flags left behind to run across the breadth of London if they were placed side-by-side.

Other quirky items included a replica of the Queen's crown, a suitcase filled with memorabilia, and even an oil painting of Queen Elizabeth II.

Wedding-related items and gifts were also regularly forgotten.

The team at Liverpool Central Stand Travelodge received plenty of cheers after they rushed across the city to take the wedding cake to the reception, which the Best Man had left behind.

Meanwhile the hotel manager at Hull Central Travelodge had to jump onto his scooter and help a grandmother who was staying at his hotel and forgotten to take her Hóng Bāo – a lucky Chinese wedding envelope containing 10,000 Chinese Yuan for her granddaughter.

Luckily the hotel manager managed to reunite the grandmother with the red envelope in time for the gift giving ceremony.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge Spokeswoman, said that there are plenty of reasons why people forget important belongings, even for special events like weddings.

She said: "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."
