A Chesire hotel is offering to hire out a goldfish called Happy for 5 to guests so they don't feel lonely in their rooms.

Jeff Riley, of the Happy Guests Lodge in Dutton, said: "A lot of our guests spend many days away from home. It can be lonely.

"After a difficult day at the office, Happy is there to give unconditional love and a valuable sounding board."

And Mr Riley told the Mirror that he was confident the unusual 'extra' would lead to repeat bookings.

"Once guests have hired a fish I'm sure when they return they will want the same fish," he said.

"They will have sort of adopted it in their minds and may have missed it between their stays."
