A MUM has divided opinion by revealing she thinks all hotels are "awful" after returning from a UK staycation.

However, others sang their praises.
Someone wrote: "I love them. Really properly love them."
Another said: "I love being looked after in a hotel. Going down for breakfast. Beds made. The swim maybe. The bar. The room service. The weird ironing board stuck in a cupboard. All of it."
