Welcome to Church Hill Boutique Lodge & Restaurant

Church Hill Restaurant Limited is a proudly New Zealand owned and operated business that offers fully hosted accommodation and dining on Stewart Island, New Zealand. We have an emphasis on fresh local produce, homemade and prepared to order.

Your hosts are Deanne and Chris Sara, who re-established Church Hill Restaurant & Oyster Bar in 2012 and Church Hill Boutique Lodge & Restaurant in 2017.

"For us, it is all about our island and the experience we want our guests to take away with them."

Situated on the hill by the church we offer our guests wonderful views of the bay, the outer islands and the best of Stewart Island.

Church Hill is currently open for the 2021-22 season.

If you are wishing to stay with us at our Boutique Lodge then please feel free to phone or make a booking enquiry through our website. Information regarding pricing and what we offer is available by visiting our accommodation page on this website.

We welcome your enquiry and any questions you may have around Church Hill and Stewart Island as a holiday destination.

Church Hill restaurant caters primarily for our lodge guests but their are a very limited number of tables available for those wanting to dine with us but are not guests at the lodge.

Often we don't know what tables we will have available until the day.
