Travelodge has revealed the most bizarre requests that some of its 19 million customers have asked whilst staying in one of its 570 UK hotels during the last 12 months.
Across the company’s seven Glasgow based Travelodge hotels, the teams receive thousands of strange requests throughout the year.
Some of the oddities during the last 12 months include:
· Do I need a visa to visit England?
· Can you write out a 100 postcards and post them to my clients in Canada?
· Where can I see wild haggis?
· Does Nessie visit the River Clyde?
· Can you please be my witness at my wedding vows renewal?
· Can you please teach my Moluccan parrot, Darling how to say a Scottish hello?
· Can you be my translator for the day and come to my meetings with me?
· I’ve been told to ask for a Glasgow kiss….should I?
· Can I borrow your suit for my interview; I left mine on the train?
· Can you book some client meetings for me in Glasgow whilst I attend a conference?
Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman said: “Annually we welcome around 19 million customers at our 570 hotels which include seven properties in Glasgow.
“Our hotel teams receive thousands of interesting requests from business and leisure guests. Where possible, our hotel teams will go above and beyond to help customers as they relish a good challenge. However there are some requests beyond their control such as getting a raft of ducks to go to sleep, stopping the traffic on the M5, getting the Northern Lights to make an appearance and getting a herd of sheep as a sleep aid.”
“Interestingly, over the last 12 months, our hotel teams have reported a rise in customer requests to help with wedding proposals.
“Requests have included a customer asking for a unicorn pedal boat and for a rainbow to appear above the hotel at 16:16 for a wedding proposal at Thurrock Travelodge. The team at Rhyl Travelodge were asked to set up a romantic candlelit dinner on Rhyl beach with a path of red rose petals from the hotel to the table. At Leamington Spa Travelodge the hotel team were tasked to get a full moon outside the customer’s room window in order to create a moonlight setting.”
