Lara Bingle faces backlash for complaining about her 63-year-old mother’s ‘unacceptable’ hotel

Lara Worthington (née Bingle) has complained about her mother Sharon’s hotel accommodation while in quarantine in Sydney.

Sharon, 63, returned to Australia on an international flight on Monday and, like other travellers, must stay in a hotel for 14 days to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Lara, 32, tweeted photos of her mother’s living conditions and wrote: ‘Don’t think this looks like a five-star accommodation to me… This is unacceptable.’

With two thirds of the country’s COVID-19 cases from or closely linked to overseas travellers, vacant hotels are being used to house new arrivals so they are not able to spread the disease.

While reports suggest travellers have been placed in high-end accommodation, Lara found her mother’s hotel inadequate.

The model shared unflattering photos of the small room and also noted that Sharon was ‘showing heavy symptoms’ of coronovirus.

But Lara soon faced backlash from fans, who said her comments were ‘tone deaf’.

One person tweeted: ‘It’s quarantine, not an extension to your luxury holiday. Less complaining would be appreciated, we are all making sacrifices and doing it tough.’

Another wrote: ‘Seriously? So maybe she should have come home earlier. I have no sympathy – there was no guarantee of five-star accommodation. You take what you get and just because she’s your mum doesn’t mean she is entitled to five-star service.’

A third follower tweeted: ‘Five star or not is absolutely besides the point; spare a thought for those worse off (and there plenty).’

The majority of Lara’s followers agreed that the safety of the community should take priority over the comfort of international arrivals.

Sharon herself has also been complaining about her hotel experience on her personal Instagram account.

She expressed disgust at the cereal breakfast and vegetarian casserole dinner provided by the hotel, writing: ‘No thank you.’

Sharon also shared a close up photo of a slightly stained towel.  

She insisted she was sick enough to be in hospital and said it was ‘unexceptionable’ [sic] for to stay in a hotel room for 14 days. 

Other Australian travellers staying in hotels for 14 days of isolation have also complained they are living in ‘quarantine hell’ with no fresh air and terrible food. 

In Sydney, travellers are being sent to numerous hotels, including the InterContinental, Swissotel and the Novotel on Darling Harbour, where room start from $200 per night. (Sharon was not staying in any of these hotels.) 

In Melbourne, people are being accommodated in the Crown Promenade, where guests typically pay at least $233 per night.
