Down with duvets

I was away from home last weekend, and, as usual, the hotel - which was otherwise fine - had a duvet on the bed. I can never sleep under a duvet. Invariably I wake up feeling too hot in the small hours, and the only solution is to throw the thing off and freeze; there is no happy medium. Everyone has different requirements for the amount of bedclothes they need; this one-size-fits-all attitude is intensely annoying.

No doubt it saves the hotel money to use the wretched things, but I hate them. Sometimes, if you ask, the management will supply a sheet and blanket, but not always; I have on occasion been greeted with bewilderment when I ask for these. The occasional hotel which doesn't inflict duvets on its guests gets high marks from me.
