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 and beach towels.
Highly recommend The Church Accommodation and a visit to the area in general.

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 her time with all the questions we had in what to do and see. Would highly recommend and we wish we were back there now.

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 but sadly we had to leave. Didn't try the restaurant or the breakfast add-on

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 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

Thank you Suzie for your stunning review! So nice to meet you both and glad you made the trip all the way here! The Whitianga Scallop Festival is gaining in popularity evey year and it sounds like this year was a complete success! We are so glad you enjoyed your Cottage and sampled the delicious menu at The Church Restaurant.
Come back again soon!
Kind regards,
Anna.
