I'm trying for something like this:

DELETE FROM reservation WHERE reservedtime + INTERVAL '2' HOUR < NOW()

I've seen any number of examples but not a lot seem to work :s

Anyone have the correct syntax please?

more efficient:

DELETE FROM reservation WHERE reservedtime < DATE_SUB( NOW(), INTERVAL 2 HOUR )

Thank you. I awas using angelIII's soution before but it wasn't deleting the records intended. I've just realised - The server is in the US, I'm in the Uk. The records were transferred from my machine to the server. The timestamp is about 7 hours out... *sigh*

Even points split coming up. Thanks both.
