Pilfering hotel guests make off with toilet seats

Toilet seats, a door hinge and a medieval sword are among the more unusual items stolen by hotel guests, according to a survey of hoteliers.

Others include the spy hole from a hotel door, a four-foot tall wooden bear and, in one case, the hotel owner's dog.

Just as bizarre are the possessions guests leave behind, the poll by Caterer and Hotelkeeper magazine found.

Among the examples of lost property given by the 1,000 hoteliers questioned were false teeth, false eyeballs, wigs and toupees,

Four per cent of owners had found artificial arms and legs, while 6% said guests had left a family member behind in the room when they checked out.

The survey confirmed pilfering by customers was widespread, with towels the most commonly stolen item, according to 32% of respondents.

Bathrobes, ashtrays, television remote controls and toilet rolls also feature highly in the contents of rooms which need replacing on a regular basis.

I work at a hotel and the most common items in the lost and found are usually: clothing articles, shoes, glasses, adapters for laptops, and books. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/sleepy.gif I suppose you didn't need to know that. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif
