After a relaxing for two weeks or more at your chosen destination in the sun, it is not unusual to forget things and perhaps leave one or two items in your hotel room when you check out.

Many people have forgotten things like an item of clothing, cell phone charger, toothbrush or even a pair of shoes that’s been accidently shoved under the bed. Here we have a list of the top ten most common and strange items that have been left behind in luxury hotels.

Recently, when asked what kind of items was left behind when a guest vacated a room, these were the response given by various hotels. False teeth are the most common item often left, though how a person can forget to put their teeth in before going to breakfast is any body’s guess. In one case, a guest holidaying in Barcelona requested the hotel send his denture back to the UK.

The second most common item and also quite strange are wigs. Although this item is not so strange, it does make one wonder how a person forgot to put it on if he/she found it necessary to wear it in the first place.

Thirdly, money has often been found in hotel rooms, either in the dresser drawer or in the safe. One couple was contacted as they were about to board the plane when 20,000 Euros was found in the drawer of the room they stayed in. The couple chose to forfeit the flight and return for the cash, staying an extra night. It would probably have been cheaper to leave the money as a large tip than have to pay for an extra night and perhaps having to pay to alter their flight.

Fourth strangest item was in the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte near Pisa. This was in the form of a dog, with little explanation its return. The fifth item was a caged cockatoo which had been left in a luxury hotel in Tenerife.  The owners asked the hotel to return it via private jet. Adult toys are the sixth most common and perhaps not so strange.

For the seventh strangest item left in a hotel room is a shark. A guest had gone fishing and caught a shark. Not thinking that it needed sea water to survive, the guest kept it in the bath full of tap water making the shark weaken. The cleaner had the fright of her life when she entered the bathroom. The shark was returned to the sea and hopefully survived. A married couple checked out of their room in Iceland, leaving a wedding ring which was never claimed which makes the eighth strangest item to have been left.

The ninth most common item to be left are car keys. Although car keys are a common item to be left behind, one wonders how a person could forget the keys to his/her Ferrari. On finding them, staff raced to the hotel parking lot, to find the owner and the Ferrari gone.

Unidentified objects are the tenth most common item to have been found in hotel rooms after the guests have vacated. A hotel in Cyprus found an old book with an odd looking cover and no title. On opening it, it was found to be written in a strange language while within it, was a locked box without an apparent keyhole.
