Our Rotorua accommodation had about this many steps outside the building.

Our host met us and offered to carry our cases in.

Great.

We had just completed a 1.8 kilometre walk,

over a geothermal area where handrails were few and far between.

I was also told, by the builder, that there are 666 steps in the walk.

Presumably 333 steps up and  333 steps down.

An hour or so driving and my knees were begging for mercy.

 

 

Sans luggage, I almost bounded up the outside steps

only to be greeted by this staircase inside.

AND at the top of this staircase was another…as long and steep.

Finally our room door.

It was opened and there was another staircase,

only 4 steps into the room.

At this point our host, seeing my struggles with the stairs

asked if we would like a ground floor room.

My knees were doing cartwheels…in their imagination!

Why in the name of fortune had he not made the offer

prior to scaling these steps.

The resident donkey came over to bid us farewell.

Although I really think it was contemplating one of

the apples we were told we could feed it.

As much as I like large dogs it took me about three seconds,

on the shore of Lake Taupo, to decide his Newfoundland,

as nice as it was, was not my type of dog.

      • Oh dear. I tend to make my own bookings too but hotels can serve up some strange surprises sometimes. The ones where you have to walk up 3-5 flights of stairs with your luggage are terrible. 🙂

      • Agreed. Our neighbour had that experience a few years ago in Europe, and our son was complaining about his New York hotel…although he may have been expecting a bit more than was delivered in three star accommodation.
