We spent three nights with Deanne and Chris. Church Hill is an absolutely amazing place to stay and eat- overlooking the bay at Oban. Chris collected us from the flight centre and check in at about 10 am was fine; then he kindly took us on a tour of the area. We planned on one dinner at Church Hill, but that ended up three. We went for an 8k hike on our last morning. Deanne prepared lunch for us and Chris collected us at the end. This was our first visit to Stewart Island. We won’t be trying anywhere else and will return to Church Hill without hesitation.

I can say this was one of the best lodging experiences of my life (and I have travelled all over the United States and many countries around the world). I have never had such attentive and considerate care while staying at a lodge like this. Chris and Di thought of everything to make it wonderful. I can't think of one thing that we wanted or needed that was not there. Chris was available whenever we needed a ride, advice or help. We will return! This was heaven. Thank you, Chris and Di!!!!

Church Hill is an absolutely fantastic place to stay on Stewart Island. The rooms are beautifully appointed, have lovely outlooks, and are immaculately clean. The hosts Chris and Deanne are friendly and so helpful - including driving you to locations on the island and helping with booking activities. They also put a lot of thought into little touches during your stay. Delicious breakfasts are included, and guests are guaranteed a table at the restaurant each night (although you don't have to eat there, it is highly recommended as the food is amazing). It's a more expensive option, but we were not disappointed and would not stay anywhere else if we return. Thanks Chris and Deanne for an incredible stay.

From being met by the host on arrival to the day of departure, our hosts could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The rooms are delightful and have absolutely everything you could possibly need. The meals was were excellent - pre dinner drinks & canapes a lovely touch. Breakfast was plentiful, fresh and served in the lovely dining area. Dinner was also fantastic using local produce and lovingly explained by Deanne. Only 5 minute walk to the "centre" of Oban

This is definitely the place to stay. Very modern and tastefully decorated. Beautiful view and incredibly quiet. Only three suites available so very private indeed. Wake up to song bird and sunrise right outside your window. Private deck with a bush backdrop peering through to harbour view. All the high level boutique touches: dressing gowns, slippers, all toiletries, fruit bowl, handmade baking, coffee machine, fridge, kettle, many tea varieties, power shower, hot water bottles, cable TV, comfortable king size bed and turndown service with chocolates. Beautiful restaurant with cooked breakfast included. Owners very friendly and even took us on a car tour of the town to show us around.
