    Funny you should mention bathroom shelving. Warren's running around working out how to incorporate more shelving as I write. I won't tell him about the lovely comment you made about his endearing nature until he's installed at least 6. Thanks for your review :)

    Just spent 2 nights at a gem of a hotel in Kaikoura. Great location overlooking the sea. The bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom was great. Warren was an attentive and extremely helpful host. Highly recommended!
