Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took advantage of the post-lockdown, off/season special deal offered by The Church, we stayed for a long weekend at this wonderful location - and will definitely choose it again! Its quiet location just set back from the village and beach, is still close enough to walk to all the attractions and cafes. The accomodation is gorgeous - impeccably clean and modern with lovely touches of quaint original architecture that gives it character and style. The staff were helpful and friendly, while respecting our privacy and need for space. Set amongst beautiful gardens, this is a relaxing and special place to stay!

We stayed 3 nights in a self contained cottage, which was great clean and had everything you wanted to use the kitchenette.
Bed so very comfortable, bathroom very spacious with walk in shower .
We had a private patio area with garden just so quiet listening to birds and watching huge butterflies.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
There is a laundry room to use.
Would stay again.

The Church Accommodation is a slice of paradise in the beautiful town of Hahei. The property has a resort like feel (almost thought I was in Bali) however with enough privacy from other guests. The outdoor seating area surrounded by nature and sounds of birds is a great place to start the day with some breakfast. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and I could not fault any aspect of our stay. The staff were quick and efficient with communication, super friendly and helpful providing tips for our stay. The accommodation is a short walk/bike ride from the beach and having the Church Bistro just next door allowed for a glamourous dinner with a short walk home. The free use of beach towels was appreciated as well as all the little touches in our room to make us feel welcomed. Loved our stay and cant wait to share it with family and friends in the future.

This is a nice setting and the staff were great but the cabins are on the rustic end of the scale. They would benefit from ceiling fans, better seating and some fly screens. The cabins are set amongst some incredible vegetation. The staff were helpful and gave great advice on the area. They provide beach towels for you to take and also spades if you are heading to hot water bay.

This motel exceeded our expectations in every way. The room was large with great facilities (apart from the bathroom mirror which was too low). We did bring our own shower chair which made the showering experience much easier.

The perfect spot to stay while visiting Hahei. Walking distance to the beach, cafe and shops.
We stayed in a garden cottage and it was our own little peaceful retreat. Kereru and tui in the puriri tree outside our cottage each morning were a beautiful way to start the day.
The staff were super friendly and helpful.
Being able to use their spades and beach towels for our trip to hot water beach meant we didn’t have to cart sandy items home or hire.
I would’ve loved to stay longer.
Our room gave us the perfect space to unwind. Comfy bed and bedding.

We had such a great welcome, including a basket of dirty laundry taken off our hands, free spades and beach towels which made our life so easy. Accomodation warm, clean and lovely. Hahai itself is a treasure indeed.

Booked the Garden Cottage and requested a quiet room which it certainly was. It was beautifully decorated and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Use of laundry was very useful being on a longer holiday. At the edge of Hahei but it’s walking distance to the beach and shops. A very relaxing stay and highly recommended for access to Cathedral Cove.

We had a great overnight stay at The Church Accommodation, in one of their garden studios. Although the furnishings are old, everything is kept in pristine shape and creates an atmosphere of sturdy elegance. We loved how spacious the studio was, we had a really good rest thanks to the comfy bed and greatly enjoyed the quirky, very practical shower head. The backyard terrace is dreamy - we had a lovely dinner (cooked at the barbecue provided for guests' use) and breakfast there, overlooking the lush greenery.
The location is awesome,as well, as it's a 3 min drive from the main attractions of the area (starting points for Cathedral Cove tours, stores & cafes, the lovely beach).

Where to start - maybe at Amazing place! A group of hums has booked several cottages together then covid lockdown hit and destroyed our plans. Anna and Andreas were could tell our disappointment but made sure that once lockdown finished they could help us book a room together and with it now being winter season even got an extra night for free. Communication prior to stay was AMAZING. Arrived late afternoon to a clean, warm and very large cottage with all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. Not a surface was dusty and the place is well maintained. Even under the alert level 2 restrictions of safe distancing they were able to provide excellent service and can’t thank them enough for an AMAZING weekend where we, along with two other couples, were able to catch up after a challenging few months. Will definitely be back to stay and highly recommend the Church Hahei to others.

Hi Henning S, My apologies for not replying to this earlier. Our Cottages come in three forms, plus a 3 bedroom house. Studio Units are arranged in one block of 4 Suites, they have a Queen sized bed, ensuite bathrooms, small kitchenette, private balcony, free parking, free wifi and access to the garden at the rear. Our Separate Cottages have the same facilities but are larger with more space inside, also with no adjoining walls as they are a stand alone building/Cottage. Our Self-Contained Cottages are larger again with proper cooking facilities, separate bedroom, large bathroom, large balcony and private garden, and the ability to sleep 4 people. The 3 bedroom House is a fully equipped House with three bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 people happily. Thank you for your email and we hope to see you here soon! Kind regards, The Church Accommodation

"If you plan to have dinner in the Church restaurant, best to book a table. It's not actually part of the Church accommodation, and can get busy at weekends."
