You can take hotel dressing gown and towels without being charged according to a housekeeping employee

HAVE you ever been tempted to take a dressing gown or a set of fluffy towels home from a really nice hotel?

The thought of being charged for the trouble may have put you off but, as it happens, you may be able to get away with it scot-free.

According to Niamh, a housekeeper for a luxury hotel in Belfast, staff don't always notice when things go missing.

She told Sun Online Travel: “There were always signs in the hotel room that if dressing gowns were removed from the room, the guest would be charged £40.

"But when a guest simply uses a robe and it has to be laundered, we don’t make a note of which robes are missing and which ones were used.

"We have so much else to do during our shift that we don’t have the time to make a note on these things.”

Dressing gowns aren't the only things you can get away with taking home.

Niamh explained: “We also never had enough facecloths for all of our rooms, even though the housekeeping manager would regularly order them.

"It seems that many people take them home. I can see why – no one really notices they’re missing.”
