Plane tickets, an engagement ring and poker chips were among the bizarre items guests left behind at Travelodges in Bath last year.
The chain has three hotels across the city and some pretty weird items have made their way into the lost-and-found box.
A Jane Austen costume was among the things guests forgot to pack, along with a Lego model of Bath city centre.
Of course, a Royal Mail post box was never going to fit in a suitcase, nor was the three foot Chinese waving chat whose luck run out when he was also left behind.
Bulky items aside, you would think the proud owner of a diamond engagement ring would have taken it with them.

Although they picked a budget hotel, some guests spared no expense when it came to their time in Bath.
One person left behind £2,000 in casino chips, while another decided a magnum of Dom Perignon Champagne wasn’t worth keeping.
Two first class plane tickets to Auckland, New Zealand also made their way into the lost-and-found box.
But a Smythson briefcase, containing the deeds to a house, was perhaps the most the intriguing find.
Elsewhere in the UK, guests were just as forgetful, with keys to a new Bentley and an R2-D2 robot turning up after they had left.
One visitor even checked out without their pet, a Siberian Husky called Saskia.
As in Bath, jet-set guests left evidence of their stay, with a Cartier engagement ring, a Swarovski wedding crown and two first-class tickets to the Maldives, among the things forgotten.
Travelodge remained open during both lockdowns in 2020 to support key workers and other people who had to travel for work.
A doctor forgot to pack his stethoscope, while another guest left their lab coat behind, and a nurse had to be reunited with her pandemic diary.
Many of the lost items, such as a money tree and a six foot cuddly polar bear, were leftover from weddings.
Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman said: “With millions of customers annually staying at our 563 UK hotels including our three properties in Bath, we do get a range of interesting items left behind.
“This year’s audit for our Bath Travelodge hotels includes an amateur actress leaving behind a Jane Austen outfit, a nervous boyfriend forgetting his engagement ring and £2,000 worth of casino chips.
“Interestingly, as we kept some of our hotels open during both lockdowns to support local communities and provide accommodation for key workers, local authorities and for businesses that could travel for work we have seen a rise in items being left behind by medical professionals.
“This includes a stethoscope, scrubs, crocs and a nurse’s personal diary documenting their experience of working through the pandemic plus lots of personalised face masks.”
