Have been away from home for 7 weeks and our lovely suite is up there with the nicest accommodation we have enjoyed. Wish our stay could have been longer. Lovely bed linen and such a great nights sleep in the comfy bed. Close to hot water beach and for a donation to the surf life saving club, use of shovels...

My husband and I loved this place. We stayed in one of the self-contained cottages. It had it's own verandah which faced into the garden so it was private and relaxing. Let me just say our bed was so comfortable I had the best night's sleep I'd had in ages. Anna helped us check-in and happily gave us plenty of...

Thanks for your lovely review- it's fantastic to hear your comments on our gardens, Anna spends A LOT of time in there (but never enough, according to her) as well as filling our guests in on all the great stuff to see and do around here. Hopefully next time your stay will be longer :)

The Church was a perfect one night stop over for us. Beautiful little cabins and comfy beds. Ideally situated close to hot water beach and Cathedral Cove so you can beat the crowds. There are lots of motels around here but none as characterful as this place. Helpful staff too, and free beach shovels. We would have loved another night...

The Church was a great place to stay despite the horrific weather. We had 2 nights here and could do nothing but stay in the hotel room due to the weather. The hosts were welcoming and helpful and we were very comfortable in our unit in the horrible weather.

Hi Peter, Thanks for your review and yes shame about the weather. It was diabolical and stayed that way for a little longer after you left. We hope we will get to see you again with some more favourable weather so you can really see the best the Coromandel has to offer

We stayed here for two nights while attending the scallop festival at Whitinaga. It was absolutely delightful. The cottage was very comfortable and full of character. The hosts were lovely and turned on the heater for us to ensure the room was warm when we arrived. There was real milk in the fridge as well. The restaurant next door is...

What a charming place. Lovely, pleasant hosts and individual cabins with lots of space, big, comfy beds, a spacious well equipped shower with plenty of hot water and parking right outside. Proper tea and coffee provided and a fridge and microwave and the wherewithal to eat in if required. And very reasonable too. Highly recommended.

We were in one of the "bungalows" near The Church Restaurant. Beautiful gardens off the small back deck. A great place to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of nice New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (or two) with some cheese and fruit after a day of tramping. Each "bungalow" is unique and nicely, but eclectically appointed. There are no TV's...

Hi Two Nuggets, Thank you for you lovely review of The Church Accommodation. You stayed in our Garden Studios (not bungalows) which are our most economical Cottages and also the smallest, hence why they have no TVs, all the other Cottages have TVs in them. The Studios are well equipped for most single or two night travellers, served with tea...

We stayed here a couple of days in a bungalow in the church gardens. The place was cute, quirky and spacious with a lot of natural light streaming through the garden facing windows.
