Hotel Staff Name Weirdest Requests They Receive – ‘Afternoon Tea with the Pandas’ | Travel News | Travel

Travelodge has had its annual audit of bizarre requests. And the company has compiled the 25 most bizarre requests its teams have had over the past year.

There are no stupid questions, but there are some very weird requests.

With millions of travelers passing through its 582 hotels across the UK, Travelodge staff are bound to receive unusual requests.

A guest asked where the Welsh Rarebit lived and when was the best time to see it.

Another needed information about the Snake Pass snake in Derbyshire.

Shakila Ahmed, spokesperson for Travelodge, said: “Following the lifting of all Covid-19 restrictions earlier this year, we have seen a significant increase in bookings at our 582 Travelodge hotels in the UK.

“With more Britons holidaying on British shores than ever before, our hotel teams have also received a large number of interesting inquiries and questions, particularly relating to place names, local dishes, customs and traditions in the British regions.

“Wherever possible, our hotel teams will go above and beyond to help guests who enjoy a good challenge.
