... Couple take 22 year holiday Couple take 22 year holiday

11 September 2007

A couple from Newark in Nottingham have been enjoying their honeymoon period for 22 years, during which they have lived in a Travelodge motel on the A1.

Both in their 70s, David and Jean Davidson have resided in two Travelodges over the period, the first being in Grantham.

The mammoth stay has earned the pair a room named the Davidson Suite, complete with plaque, and they claim it gives them peace of mind since they do not have bills to worry about.

The lovebirds book a year in advance, giving them the great rate of just 90 a week. Living in the motel costs them between 1,600 and 8,000 a year depending on room rates.

They dine either in the motel or at a nearby Little Chef.

And when they take a holiday from their motel room, they stay in other Travelodge branches.

Mr Davidson is quoted by the Metro as saying: "This is our home. We have everything we need here and the staff are like family now."ADNFCR-1043-ID-18275330-ADNFCR
