Hotel secrets: Staff reveal the most ridiculous demands hotel guests have made

Their requests vary from the utterly extravagant and the completely ridiculous to the just plain odd.

Budget hotel chain Travelodge unveiled the most bizarre requests that some of its 19 million customers have asked whilst staying in one of its 553 UK hotels during the last 12 months.

Some guests made intriguing demands for how they wanted their rooms to be – but the requests weren’t aways for themselves.

One person asked: “Can you fill my room with 100 pink heart-shaped balloons for my Grandmother’s 100th birthday which say ‘Happy Birthday Grandma Gladys?”

Another said: “Can you fill the bathtub full with different flavoured scoops of ice cream for my wife’s 40th birthday?”

For instance, a guest asked: “Can you make a cat bunk bed ahead of my stay for my two Bengal kittens Simba and Nala?”

While another went much more extreme with the query: “Can you arrange for dolphins to be dancing in the sea at 9pm tonight at the same time that I propose to my girlfriend?”

One guest showed a great deal of love for something in his life – but it wasn’t a living being.

They asked: “Can you cover my Ferrari with a duvet tonight as it doesn’t like the cold?”

“Can you please get four of your team members to dress up as the Beatles to perform at my friend’s wedding?” was one demand.

Travelodge has revealed the most bizarre requests some of its customers have made while staying in the chains 44 Scottish hotels this year.

Staff at Travelodges Dundee Strathmore Avenue hotel faced a guest who requested a framed picture of their basset hound, named Bernie, in their room before they arrived.

Also in Dundee, employees were asked if a guest could put up a large marquee in your car park for a corporate event.

In other Scottish branches, a guest requested afternoon tea with the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral, while another wanted to know what time they could take a cage dive to see the Loch Ness Monster.

A guest at the Edinburgh Airport accommodation asked at reception: Can I have a room next to the runaway, as I dont want to miss my flight?

One business guest staying in Fort William demanded to know the altitude and longitude of the hotel, as his group were arriving by helicopter.

Another guest, in the Glasgow Queen Street hotel, asked staff: Can you call me out of a meeting and say its an emergency so I can catch my train?

Staff in Aberdeen Central Justice Mill Lane were posed the question: Can you reserve a whole train carriage for me, as I have an important presentation and I need to rehearse on my journey from Aberdeen to London?

The bizarre requests were not restricted to the chains Scottish hotels, however. A guest in Liverpool asked for four members of staff to dress up as The Beatles to perform at my friends wedding.
