    A newlywed couple staying in a luxury five-star hotel looted their room - even taking the paintings off the walls.

    Laura and Christoher Barnett fled with slippers, dressing gowns, Egyptian linen sheets, pillows, everything in the minibar, bedside telephone and the flat-screen television.

    A court heard Laura Barnett, 25, and new husband Christopher, 38, checked into the Grade II-listed Morgans Hotel in Swansea, South Wales, for a romantic break.

    But when they tried to checked out of the £90-a-night Osprey suite, staff discovered they had left the room almost bare.

    The couple had passed the TV through a window then loaded up their luggage with all the rest of their five-star plunder.

    Amazing, but £90-a-night for a suite, sounds reasonable in my books, but what they have done and why, remains a mystery to us.

    This sounds like a reality TV special in the making!

    Keepin' it classy.

    I've heard stories of a large All-Inclusive here that sells transport included tours having the bus stop on the way to the airport and over the bus loudspeaker have a hotel employee announce: "OK, the guests in 2112 owe for 3 towels and an ashtray... 6529, two bathrobes and slippers, etc" and then unload the bags and have guests fish out and return their loot...

    Those two are definitely not the brightest bulbs on the tree. Amazing that he thought it was a good idea to argue with the front desk over the PPV movies because there was "no television in the room"... wow.

    "What, weren't all those things in the room our wedding gifts?"

    (Ignoring fact that they'd been married for 6 months at the time they stole all this stuff.)

    Does the next person who wants that room get the RyanAir rate? Oh, you want a bed? That's $20. Sheets, too? $15. Towels? $10.
