As an accommodation provider, you’re probably no stranger to a peculiar guest request now and again. So, we asked you, what stands out as the oddest thing you’ve ever been asked for. The responses came in their masses and range from the slightly odd to the down right bizarre.
Here are the first top 15:
To bring their pet hamster with them
We guess that’s fine unless you have cats at The Knoll Guest House?
When you serve up delicious Yorkshire sausages at The Manse B&B, what else do you really need?
A guest requesting spaghetti bolognese for breakfast
Think we are hitting slighter odder breakfast territory now at The Sportmans Lodge
To bring their own mattress!
How they would get it there, it’s not exactly suitcase-friendly? Grosvenor View
A haunted room
You could have just picked any room and spent the evening making ghostly wooo sounds and rapping on their windows at 4am to satisfy this request Pannett House
If their two huge hawks would be welcome
It turns out that they were welcome! Where did they sleep Thornley House, or did they just swoop about the room all night?
For the receptionist to arrange rose petals in a crude shape on the bed while they were at dinner
Time to get creative at The Bathurst Arms!!
When the service is as good as Langdon Villa Guest House, even the dead need to know about it
You have to admire a guest who know what they want and isn’t afraid to ask for it Collins Arms
Let’s hope that it was a guest simply fixing a broken suitcase and not the same guest from Collins Arms, taking a visit to Breakers Lodge
Well, in a town where nobody knows you, you can be anybody, isn’t that right Rylstone Manor Hotel?
Tweezers to take the hair out of his nose
Sure, you can borrow these as long as sterilise them after… and throw them in the bin… Sarnia Guest House
A fridge in his room to keep his butter in
Of course, The Beach Hose will just simply heave the kitchen fridge up to your room, for your pack of butter
I was once asked if was possible to fry eggs into a penis shape
Don’t worry City Park Guest House, we looked into this for you and it turns out… you can!
Would I scatter their parents ashes for them… I did!
As long as they kept the urn away from the sugar bowls, could have been a terrible mix-up at Stonecroft Country Guesthouse
