The only bits I got back were the tiller extension and 2 kites and jib, the rest it seemed were either halfinched by the cleaners or the Hotel couldn’t find the stuff… hmmmmm…Posted 4 years agojohndohMember
Knowing someone that works in hotels, it’s the stuff that gets left behind deliberately (and the people who ask for the same room each time they stay) that is the most amusing.
Hello Brian, Room 234 again is it?
30 minutes later….
Going out Brenda? Have a pleasant evening.

Serves you right for being a forgetful oaf!
Nothing more than a phone charger for me.
I did once leave the bed, but returned for it later.Posted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber

Several WD passport drives and USB leads
Many many schuko and US to 3-pin flat adapters. I stopped this from happening by re-wiring one UK 6-gang extension with a schuko plug and another with a US two pin.surroundedbyhillsSubscriber
I used to work in hotels and one very upmarket one in particular. The lost property policy was that if unclaimed after 3 months the “finder” would get the item back.Posted 4 years ago
I got quite a few things including a Levi 501 jacket, a pair of Oakleys and 2 x signed framed landscape prints worth about £400 which I gave to my mum!
Colleagues regularily received golf clubs including full sets and on one occasion an 18ct gold Mt Blanc pen.peterfileMember
Without a word of a lie, I lost my car between xmas and new year and found it three days later in the Hilton car park.
A load of us were staying there and I had apparently been whinging that the free parking was due to end where I had parked my car. My car somewhow made its way to the hotel (definitely wasn’t me) and no one knew anything about it. I was ready for calling the police to report it stolen and then someone found a car park ticket in a bath robe when we were checking out some days later. If we’d not found that ticket then I’d have left it at the hotel 🙂
A lesson in alcohol moderation perhaps, however it’s the biggest thing I’ve ever managed to lose.Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
+1 my dignity
Although strictly speaking, I lost it just outside a hotel room, having got up in the night for a wee, gone through the door into the hallway instead of the door into the bathroom, and realised just as the door closed behind me. Thus making me do the walk of shame down to the reception, in just a pair of pants.
I did lose a pair of suit trousers too, but I got those back.Posted 4 years agoScamperMember
A mate has done the walk of shame after getting the wrong door, although unfortunately he was in his birthday suit. He managed to grab a towel off a trolley near reception before asking for a key. The staff gave the impression this was a regular occurrence even at 8.30am.Posted 4 years ago
In my defence M’lord I left the packing of the Dinghy stuff to my then LTG, though to be fair she was normally very good at this sort of thing however on this occasion she failed misserably and I didn’t check under the cover of the boat..Posted 4 years ago
And the bike stuff (on a completely different trip) I mislaid (cough) having being invited to stay with a very nice Lady at her place for a couple of nights in Verese, who in thier right mind would turn that down I ask you, who?? I packed the van quickly and had to high tail it out of there sharpish.. 😉 😆stumpy01Member
Opposite thing really, but when on honeymoon in Sri Lanka last year, we were about an hour down the road from the hotel we had overnighted at (we did a 6 day tour) and the guide’s mobile phone rang.Posted 4 years ago
Did I still have the (presumably only) room key on me still, as they couldn’t find it. Cue huge embarassment as i pulled a key from my pocket with a fob on it about the size of a large block of post-it notes. How I had failed to give it in, I don’t know!
In my defence they didn’t ask for it….ahem.
Luckily the guide new a shop on the main road that were happy to look after the key until one of the staff could come and collect it. I felt very guilty!!tinybitsMember
Totally different subject bikebouy, if you’ve did any RS200 events 3+ years ago (children have out it on pause a bit) there’s a very good chance we’ve had a beer together…! I’m often drinking with Pete (Uggs) and MrsBits occasionally crews for him when she’s sick of me making her swim!Posted 4 years agotinybitsMember
Yep, def would have done then as done several events at HISC including series, nationals and anniversary regatta 200832 was mine, but often seen in anything with anyone I could, as long as they didn’t mind being at the back of the fleet!!Posted 4 years ago
Looking to get an 800 with a mate who sails IC’s and Int 14’s in the hope we can have a bit of fun together until kids are old enough to sail.
