A motelier in Palmerston North has banned all residents from Wainuiomata from staying at his motel.
A Palmerston North motel with its own “Basil Fawlty” has banished an entire town from its doorstep.
The 16,000 residents of the Lower Hutt suburb of Wainuiomata were slapped with a blanket ban by Palmerston North’s Supreme Motor Lodge this week, after a series of misdemeanours by visiting sports teams.
Supreme’s owner, Steve Donnelly-an Australian- said guests from Wainuiomata were more trouble than they were worth.
“Having had about a hundred people from there over the last couple of years and maybe one that we liked … it is not worth it and we would do the same to anyone who causes us that level of stress.”
Sports teams from Wainuiomata High School and the town’s indoor sports club were accused of spitting, playing loud music at night, using obscene language and being unruly.
I’d ban the peasants from Wainuiomata too! Though it does say a lot about the motel if the peasants can afford to stay there.
