UK - By law, the police are required to inform the hotel that one of its guests is a convicted sex offender. True or false?
If there are children in the hotel who are considered to be at risk the police are legally required to inform the manager/owner of the hotel.
Whether the sex offender is evicted or not is solely down to the discretion of the manager/owner.
This question is concerning the law of England/Wales.
True or false?

IMPOSSIBLE. That would require police to KNOW who the guests are.

Completely wrong. There is no such law. It's impossible anyway as there is no law requiring hotels to tell the police who all their guests are. Further, the sex offender register is private to the police and they're not allowed to tell anyone who's on it, except in very rare cases where parents should know. How do you expect sex offenders to rehabilitate when the police are going to blab who they are? Which is why they aren't allowed to.

Simple answer is NO.

How would the police know the person is staying at the hotel? They would have no way of knowing, so there cannot be a duty to inform.

False...... police inform no one but the criminal would be in breach of their licence if they did that

False, they are not required to give out information because it causes witch hunts. How you stop sex offenders getting your kids is, you supervise them, you don't need to "know where all the paedos are", you can apply for information but they do not have to give you it, it wouldn't be instantly given anyway and it's only for when a sex offender applies for a job with vulnerable people, it's not just so some hotel manager can boot them out or get all his mates to come and beat up the nonce. It's very rare a stranger abuses a child in any case, they usually attack a relative but yeah for the odd ones that do attack kids they don't know, you prevent them by watching your kids. Once an offender has completed their sentence, that's it, they don't keep getting harassed forever. The police can't just give anyone normal such information because they behave irrationally, a hotel manager could be a promoted dish washer, it's vital that only professionals know and you supervise your kids. There are campaigners who want an open database but they are knuckle draggers whose goal it is to harass ex offenders, it's easy to protect kids with supervision.

Do UK hotels do criminal checks on all the guests of their hotels? That seems (?) unlikely so they would have no idea if a guest is a sex offender.

The government in the U.K can label anyone as a sex offender in the gang stalking program even if fed individual is not one
This is done to bully targeted individuals

In order to do that, every hotel would have to report to the police the names and personal info of every guest. I don't think they do that.
