Breast implants, a live python and a £10,000 engagement ring were among the most bizarre things forgotten by hotel guests last year, according to a budget hotel chain.
Travelodge, which has more than 500 properties in Britain, claims each of the unusual items were discovered by cleaning staff inside recently vacated rooms during 2012.
Also left behind were a bucket of live crabs, a pantomime horse, a winning EuroMillions ticket, a £50,000 Rolex watch, and a set of four Power Rangers costumes.
A pilot’s training manual, a spare car wheel, the keys to a Bugatti, and a stamp album worth £250,000 were also uncovered, as were a Persian Chinchilla kitten, a food processor, a set of false teeth, a collection of 200 masks depicting the Queen, and a diamond encrusted iPhone.
"Our lost and found departments provide plenty of revelations," said a spokesman for the hotel chain.
"What is becoming evident after speaking to customers is that the pace of life has become so fast and we are so eager to get from A to B that priceless processions are easily being forgotten."
