Great PR work

A Wellington hotel surprised two blind guests by sending them a bill for $85 to pay for the clean-up it said was required after the honeymooning couple's guide dogs allegedly moulted everywhere during the visit to the capital.  And just to add the finishing touches to this PR coup, the manager was quoted as saying:
"We did something nice for them because they wanted a harbour view, which I kinda thought was funny because they're blind ... but we put them in a nice room," he said.
