One hopeful customer asked staff whether they could arrange for children’s character Peppa Pig to wake their daughter up on her birthday, while another brave guest queried whether it was possible to swim to the Isle of Wight.

There were also weird requests from lovestruck customers - one asked whether it was possible to get married at the top of the Spinnaker Tower, and one asked staff to arrange for his girlfriend to find a wedding proposal as a message in a bottle on the water front.

There are two Travelodges in Portsmouth, in Kingston Crescent and Hilsea.

Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said: ‘With over 18 million customers staying annually across our 523 UK Travelodge hotels, our hotel teams receive thousands of unusual requests from business and leisure travellers.

‘Where possible, the hotels teams go above and beyond to help customers however, there are some requests that they cannot help with.

‘Such as, finding a unicorn to help one romantic with his wedding proposal, ensuring there is a blue sky on the day of an important strategy meeting for an executive and moving a Travelodge room to the roof of the hotel so that the customer could sleep under the stars.’
