We stayed at the Church for two nights over Queens Birthday (NZ holiday) weekend. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and told if we needed anything just to ask. Our room was very clean and full on character – love the wooden cabin look, with old fashioned windows.
We stayed in a self contained cottage with a fire place. Rooms are very spacious, bed was super comfortable, bathroom clean – only complaint there was the shower is rather dark, being in the corner, so could use a light over it. Kitchen is pretty basic – two elements, so not expect to cook a gourmet dinner in here. But was adequate for what we needed it for. Only serious gripe about the room would be the lack of couch, As we were staying in winter, you are spending more time in your room and there is no where (that is comfortable) to sit for a long period of time, so a couch would be a great addition!
The fireplace – was fantastic, a must in winter!!! As it made the whole place so warm and cozy.
The rooms are surrounded by beautiful gardens, and it is so quiet and peaceful, you could be excused for thinking you are the only people there.
I would recommend this place to anyone. I would also recommend the restaurant – great food (my partner said best steak ever), and really good service. A must try if you are visiting Hahei.
