Excellent place to for a few nights. Very complete and clean room. Wonderful view. Within 10 minutes walk you’re in the shop- and restaurant area of Kaikoura. Every morning fresh fruits and warm croissants and a muffin for the day. Julie and Kerry are very hospitable. Julie

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Pleased you enjoyed our property. We do have a small wardrobe with coat hangers that we would expect the coats and items to be hung. The towels would normally be in the towel rail in the bathroom and then we do service daily where more are hung. We also supply a airing rack for our guests own personal items to hang. So sorry about the toilet paper but I do buy eco friendly paper which may be a little different.Once again so sorry that there wasnt enough as we always have 2 rolls in the white bin next to the toilet. We would never expect our guests to need to bring any and if in the event that all was used including the spare ones have plenty here to top up if required. Hope the rest of your trip went to plan in our beautiful country, Regards, Julie
