The most bizarre hotel requests have been named - ‘Where does the Welsh Rarebit live?'

Asia's Tech News Daily

Travelodge has had its annual Bizarre Requests Audit. And the company has compiled the 25 most bizarre requests its teams have had over the last year.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, but there are some very bizarre requests.

With millions of travellers going through its 582 hotels all over the UK, Travelodge staff are bound to get some unusual requests.

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

Another needed information on the snake of Snake Pass in Derbyshire.

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

“With more Britons holidaying on British shores than ever before our hotel teams have also received a high volume of interesting requests and questions especially around place names, local dishes, customs and traditions across the British regions.

“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 arranging afternoon tea with the pandas, getting a shooting star to appear at 10pm, getting a part on Emmerdale and getting seagulls to sing instead of squawk!”
