Timber cottage retreat

The Lookout is just 400 metres up from the beach and Chatham Hotel. This is a more private retreat on the Chatham Islands which is perfect for groups, families or work teams. Elevated with a large covered veranda upstairs, Lookout has great views of farm landscapes and the bay. Plus there's a big lawn to kick a ball about too. 

The upstairs level can sleep up to 8, while two self-contained units on the ground floor can sleep up to 4 people. Rooms and units can be booked separately or a group can book the entire cottage. 

Upstairs there's a large, well-equipped kitchen to congregate around and a very comfortable lounge. Laundry available onsite.

Hotel Chatham runs a courtesy van to and from the Bar and Restaurant.

Some properties are better suited for groups or long-term arrangements. When you make your enquiry, tell us what you need and we will find our best available accommodation option. Let us know if you have particular needs or if you wish the room to be appointed differently eg. twin or double beds. If you need baby cots and high chairs, please book in advance with your room as we have limited numbers available.

Hotel Chatham and the Forget Me Not Suites have one wheelchair accessible room each.

To secure your booking, payment of one night's accommodation is required.

Credit card surcharge: +2.5%


Skies every colour of the rainbow... plus a few rainbows

Our Moriori name is Rekohu or misty skies. Some are misty, but most aren't. There's an ever-changing slideshow of amazing skyscapes and incredible light that will have you captivated all day, every day. And if dark skies and astronomy are your thing, you're in for a treat.
