In a warm hearted gesture (or a cunning publicity ploy!) leading hoteliers Travelodge are offering up free rooms over the Christmas period to any married couples named Mary and Joseph.
Festive couples can spend a night in any Travelodge hotel from Christmas Eve to January 5th 2008, providing, couples are married and have identity to prove so.
All that is left to be seen is if Travelodge have enough spare rooms to cope with the extra business, and if not? There is always the old failsafe… the stable!
