Guinness World Records have confirmed that Andrea Warner, Andreawho is the hotel manager at Wellingborough Rushden Travelodge from Rushden, has set a new world record for the Fastest bed making by an individual (king sized bed) in a time of 74 seconds.
Guinness World Records, the recognised authority on record-breaking achievements, has confirmed Andrea is the first record holder for this specific record category, and had to complete the bed making in under three minutes to secure the record.
The record bed making was witnessed by Kit Malthouse, the Deputy Mayor of London for Business & Enterprise, and 300 people! The attempt was adjudicated by two official timekeepers from the Amateur Football Alliance and two independent witnesses.

For the Guinness World Records attempt, Andrea dressed a new king-size Travelodge Dreamer Bed. This included placing a king size flat sheet on the mattress, inserting four pillows into cases, inserting a king size duvet into a cover, closing with buttons, making the bed and adding a bed runner.
Andrea Warner commented:
“I cannot believe I have made history by being the first person in the world to dress a king size in the record time of 74 seconds. Not in my wildest dreams did I think that one day I would be a record breaker. I have made over 10,000 beds since I joined Travelodge. However in the run up to taking this challenge I was practising throughout the day and evenings. I even popped round to my family and friends houses to make their beds, just so that I could practice.”
