Our Lodge

We are very pleased to announce the completion of Church Hill Boutique Lodge. We have been working on the project for a couple of years and but for a few finishing touches we are fully functional and look forward to hosting our first guests in 2017-18 season. This is our home and our business so we aim to offer a warm and friendly environment with all the luxury of a private lodge and restaurant.

We have created a spacious private setting that offers a premium accommodation option for those visiting Stewart Island. You will be fully hosted and our rooms offer teas and coffee making facilities, private front decks with wonderful views of the bay, Sky TV and DVD on large flat screen TVs, large bathrooms and home baking.

The lodge comprises of three stand-alone suites with ensuites and all the amenities to meet the needs of our valued guests. We are a smoke free lodge and smoking is not permitted within the rooms, decked areas or the restaurant.

As a guest at Church Hill you will be picked up and dropped off on arrival and departure. You will be offered a choice of breakfast options, pre-diner drinks and canapes.

As a lodge guest you will also have exclusive access to other dining experiences within the restaurant. That includes in room dining, priority restaurant bookings and lunch options.

In our planning for the lodge we have strived to anticipate your every need to complete and compliment your visit to Stewart Island. To help us to achieve this we invite you to inform us of what you are looking for during your stay so we can prepare to meet your needs.

We are only minutes from the Oban township but your room is set within our bush so nature and the bird life are within touching distance. The lodge has been carefully designed with the environment in mind and we removed as little bush as possible and have replanted many native plants to replace those displaced during construction. We also have a great garden and lawn area available for your enjoyment.

We thank you for considering us as your host on the island, but should we not be lucky enough to accommodate you at the Lodge we would still love to see you at the restaurant.
