Lara Worthington Lashes “Unacceptable” Boutique Hotel Chosen For Her Mum’s Quarantine

Aussie model Lara Worthington has slammed the government after her mum was put up in a boutique hotel to quarantine.

Worthington is not in self-isolation herself, but her mum Sharon Bingle has just returned to Australia and must follow the government’s new 14-day quarantine measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The two weren’t happy with the accommodation, which taxpayers are footing the bill for as a public health precaution.

“I don’t think this looks like a 5 star accommodation to me,” Worthington tweeted. “This is unacceptable”

The accommodation in question is The Urban Newtown, a self-described boutique hotel in Sydney’s trendy Inner West. It appears Worthington or her mother must’ve mistaken the hotel’s exposed ceiling and rustic decor for some kind of architectural defect.

“Our boutique studio rooms, combined with our industrial design will ensure that your stay will differ from the rest,” the hotel’s website reads.

On, reviewers have most widely praised the hotel’s “comfy beds,”, “friendly staff” and “boutique style”. On TripAdvisor, it has a four-star rating, being deemed “very good”.

Worthington later clarified to that she’s more concerned about the health of her 63-year-old mum.

“We understand everyone is in this together and has their own issues in these increasingly concerning times,” she said.

As of Sunday, all Aussies returning from overseas have been put up in a variety of hotels.

In Sydney, these include the 5-star InterContinental and Hilton hotels, as well as the budget Ibis. In Melbourne, new arrivals are staying in Crown hotels.

Many replied to Worthington’s tweet negatively, pointing out that there are Aussies are in much tougher situations during the coronavirus pandemic.
