Hotel charges blind honeymooners for removal of dog hair

A blind couple on honeymoon are furious they were charged cleaning costs after their two guide dogs stayed with them at a Wellington serviced apartment complex.

The complex managers, however, say they did the Palmerston North couple "a nice thing" by letting them stay, because "other hotels don't accept" dogs.

Holy smokes !! don't they know the law of the land ?!

Olivia and Jonathan Godfrey were shocked when they went to pay for their three-night stay at the Centr@l Terrace Heights Serviced Apartments in Wellington last month and found they had been charged $85 for professional carpet cleaning.

"We think there was a bit of premeditation going on. They said housekeeping would make the best effort to clean it [dog hair] up and we were fine with that," said Mrs Godfrey, a lawyer.
