We were staying overnight in a hotel last night (after a small domestic emergency so had left the house in a hurry), over breakfast this morning a family of five came down for breakfast with all the children in pyjamas and dressing gowns and barefoot. they were aged about eight to fifteen or so.

Aibu to think that this is not really acceptable?

I think with dc it’s ok as some are difficult about getting dressed, might not of got up on time etc, with an adult however it’s just laziness

People really fall over themselves to find things to be annoyed about.

It’s a bit strange. We’re the parents dressed?

Did it affect you in any way?

Bit weird. The norm is to get dressed. I wouldn't do it.

Children I can't get upset over. But when dh and I were in a Vair posh hotel for our wedding anniversary there was an insufferable 20 something woman who came down in her pjs and was acting in a way that kind of dared everyone to say something, talking very loudly on her phone, wild gesticulations, sashaying through the dining room. I'm sure she thought she was oh so daring but really she just looked a total numpty

I think that's really odd

That's hilarious! 😂 bless them!

I'd live in my pyjamas if it was socially acceptable! I'd probably try to get dressed in a hotel though. But I probably wouldn't give a monkey's if someone else was in pjs x

Much ado about nothing IMO. What's the problem, really?

My etiquette-strict late parents would be turning in their graves at the prospect of pyjamas in public. As far as I'm concerned you get dressed for a hotel breakfast because that's just the polite thing to do. But then I sort of wish I'd been born in the days where you dressed up for dinner, so I might not be the fairest judge.

I'm someone who is constantly in pyjamas/comfies whenever I'm in my house but even I'd get dressed for breakfast in a hotel.

PandorasXbox Mon 23-Oct-17 10:32:16

I’m surprised staff didn’t ask them to get dressed.

Barefoot in a restaurant is grim.

Younger children I wouldn't have a problem with but 15 is pushing it a bit.

It takes 30 seconds to throw jeans and a top on.

Katedotness1963 Mon 23-Oct-17 10:34:06

Not something I would do, but it doesn't bother me to see others doing it.

Bluntness100 Mon 23-Oct-17 10:34:35

I’d find this a bit odd. I’m also surprised any 15 year old would go to breakfast in their pyjamas.

lottieandmia22 Mon 23-Oct-17 10:34:51

It wouldn’t bother me.

Allthebestnamesareused Mon 23-Oct-17 10:35:51

Did breakfast end at 9.30 and they tipped up at 9.25? It may be that they just rushed down to ensure they got their breakfast.

It wouldn't bother me but it isn't something I'd do.

I’m also surprised any 15 year old would go to breakfast in their pyjamas.

Yes me too. There’s not a chance on earth my younger Ds would step outside the room not dressed. Very curious.

You'd hate Champneys. The guests are welcome to go to breakfast and lunch in a fluffy white gown!

CredulousThickos Mon 23-Oct-17 10:38:49

I’ve done it. Hugely hungover in a travel Dodge. With a load of MNers iirc.

Yep most hotel restaurants do not allow bare foot. I think it's a bit lazy
