Items kept by the city’s lost and office include a model of the Titanic, a blow up palm tree and - perhaps most strangely - a resignation letter.

A diamond bracelet and a book of love letters were also left at either the city or Hilsea hotels.

Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said: ‘With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 542 UK Travelodge hotels, for a wide variety of reasons, we do get some interesting items being left behind.

‘This year’s inventory list includes a Starchaser space rocket, a WW2 bravery medal, deeds to land in the Scottish Highlands, a pilot’s licence, a mother-in-law and a Lionhead rabbit called Bugs Bunny.

‘The running theme our customers do tell us, is that the pace of modern life is so fast & furious that time is off the essence especially when getting from A to B and therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.’

Here are some of the other strange items found in branches of Travelodge:

Eastleigh Central - A bath full of jersey potatoes

Birmingham Broadway Plaza - 20 Bob the Builder costumes including work belts and hard hats

Heathrow T5 - A script for a movie

Newcastle Central - A winning Euro Lottery ticket

York Central - A Mother-in-law
