Travelodge has revealed the most bizarre requests that some of its customers in Halifax have asked while staying with them over the last 12 months.

The company has 17 million customers and 506 hotels across the UK and receive strange requests and questions throughout the year, with Halifax providing some of the strangest, including:

Can I go and watch Halifax Town play in the Premier League today?

Can you please be my chauffeur for the day as I need to impress my clients?

Can I borrow your engagement ring as I would like to propose to my girlfriend this evening?

Can I buy all the pillows in the hotel?

Please could you phone me and read a story at bedtime?

Will you come to the football with me as my friend is stuck in traffic?

Can you be a witness for our wedding this morning?

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman, said: “With over 17 million customers staying annually in our 506 UK Travelodge hotels, our hotel teams receive thousands of unusual requests from business and leisure travellers.

“Our hotel teams will always try their best to accommodate all customer requests but there are some requests that we just cannot help with such as joining them to watch the football or even getting the Shaymen promoted to the Premier League.”
