Lara Worthington Just Posted Pics Of Her Mum’s 'Unacceptable' Boutique Hotel Quarantine Digs & Ppl Aren't Impressed
Well, this is awkward.
It appears as if Lara Worthington may have confused the industrial-style Sydney boutique hotel her mum Sharon Bingle was put up in to quarantine after arriving from overseas on Monday with a… lesser hotel?
TBH, we don’t really know what Worthington was thinking when she took to Twitter to call her mum’s perfectly fine-looking – not to mention taxpayer-funded – temporary digs “unacceptable”, but we know her fans were not impressed.
Worthington had tweeted: “I don’t think this looks like a 5 star accommodation to me. The next 14 days here for my 63 year old mum who is showing heavy symptoms. This is unacceptable.”

Worthington’s tweet came with four photos from inside her mum’s hotel room – one of which showed a chair with its cushion taken off.

The hotel in question was The Urban Newtown, a boutique hotel in cool Sydney ‘burb, Newtown. In all likelihood, Worthington probably didn’t realise the corkboard accent and exposed ceiling were part of its design.
Either way, though, her followers weren’t happy and told her so on Twitter. “Pretty sure they won’t peel her a grape either Lara!” one said, while another wrote: “I have not a holiday away in years. I have 3 children and I would be mortified if any of them said something as sh*t as this.”
Seriously?? So maybe she should have come home earlier. I have no sympathy - there was no guarantee of 5 star accommodation. You take what you get and just because she’s your mom doesn’t mean she is entitled to 5 star service...

Worthington, who lives in the US, later seemed to clarify her tweet, telling news.com.au in a private message that she’s actually more concerned with her mum’s health.
“The main issue is that no one has given her or her family any contact numbers in case she feels worse. She understands she must quarantine but people who have travelled back are being kept in the dark information.”
To be fair, Worthington isn’t alone in calling out quarantine accommodation conditions. Returning travellers have said they aren’t even allowed to open windows and the meal sizes are minimal with dietaries and allergies not catered to.
It’s expected about 20,000 travellers will return to Oz next week. All will be put in hotels for the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
