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 top class and this coupled with the great accomodation makes this place a real gem.
Thank you for a fabulous weekend. We will be back.

Room Tip: They are all lovely and set in lovely garden. Enjoy a coffee on the deck listening to the bell birds

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.

Room Tip: All rooms would be quiet I should think.

Out of the many places my family and I stayed in during our tour of North Island in August, this place is the only place I am reviewing.
What a jewel...lovely cottages, beautiful garden and friendly hosts...wonderful beaches. This is the only place where I did not have to walk around in socks and a sweater as the heater made the cottage we stayed in warm and cosy.
Laundry is also available which is great for families.
Don't know what Hahei is like in summer but this place was quiet and peaceful in August, great for nature lovers.

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 in the rooms but there is a large community room with satellite TV if necessary. Laundry facilities are available.

Andre is a really great host - knowledgeable and accommodating. Towels and shovels are provided for those who want to go to Hot Water Beach.

The adjacent Church Restaurant is a separately owned, casual to fine dining restaurant with excellent food. Go to Cathedral Cove in the early morning to catch the rising sun reflecting off the rocks. The walk along the coast from Hahei beach to Cathedral Cove is spectacular. On your walk, make sure you take a detour down to Stingray Cove

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 coffee, microwave, fridge, kettle, cutlery, crockery and glassware. We agree that the natural assets of the area compliment our garden atmosphere nicely here and the balconies are a great place to take breakfast or a wine during oyur stay.
Thanks again.
The Church Accommodation Team.

We stayed here for only one night, but wish we could have stayed for longer!

We arrived late due to some traffic in Auckland (the only place for traffic in the North Island!!) but the staff were so great and made late check in really easy.

We stayed in a studio apartment, which was delightfully cosy and felt like a little home away from home. It was very clean, with comfy beds and a lovely little balcony out to some beautiful gardens. We felt very rested the next day.

In the morning we were heading out to Cathedral Cove and the staff offered us some beach towels so as not to get ours dirty/wet, which was great and we just dropped them back on the way back past.

We would love to return for a stay if/when we come back and would highly recommend to others.

Hi Laura V,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay although only one night. Thank you for writing a review we appreciate it. Beach towels and spades are free for guest use even if you check out on the day you use them as you did. It's the little things we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.
Thanks again.
