Travelodge has issued an apology after a female guest found a hidden camera in her shower.

Harmony Hachey, 23, was using the cubicle when she noticed a small electronic device hidden behind the vent.

She realised it was in a hidden camera pointing directly at where she was standing naked in the shower.

She immediately informed bosses at the Oxford Wheatley Travelodge, who allegedly traced the device to the caretaker’s cupboard that backs onto the room, the Telegraph reported.

A police spokesman said the camera was not connected to the caretaker’s room, with a flex left dangling inside the maintenance unit behind the shower.

A Travelodge spokeswoman confirmed that what appeared to be a camera had been found in the room and apologised to Miss Hachey.

She added: “The privacy of our customers is a matter of the highest importance to us and the hotel team investigated immediately.

“While the camera appeared to be inoperative, we have reported this matter to the police and we are now supporting them fully with their ongoing investigations.

“We would like to offer our sincere apologies to the customer affected and will remain in contact with them to ensure the matter is resolved.”
