Travelodge guests request Meghan Markle’s dress and a ride in an F1 car

Travelodge have revealed some of the slightly odd (and sometimes laughable) requests members of its staff have received this year, with some highlights including a ride in a Formula One racing car, arranging to wear the Duchess of Sussex’s Giorgio Armani dress for a 40th birthday party and cookery lessons from Aunt Bessie. Others have asked for staff to organise a surprise afternoon tea with Paddington Bear and more practically an extra room to be used as a wardrobe. One particular area of interest this year at the hotel chain has been the royal family, with a woman staying in Bath asking a receptionist if she could contact The Fashion Museum and borrow the black Giorgio Armani dress that Meghan Markle donned in her interview with Oprah Winfrey for a party. Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said: “With more Britons holidaying on British shores than ever before, our hotel teams have received a high volume of interesting requests and questions, especially around attractions, locations, local dishes, customs and traditions across our diverse 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 getting ordained to officiate a wedding, getting the London Eye to rotate in an anti-clockwise formation, programming all the traffic lights in York to be green at midday for a bride to get to the church on time and taking a customer for a spin in the Red Bull Formula One racing car around Milton Keynes’ famous roundabouts.” For more stories from where you live, visit InYourArea.
