The spaces can be utilised together for a change of scene, lunch or break out spaces. For formal dinners or lunches, the rooms can be transformed into a stylish banquet room or relaxed and casual mix and mingling space. All conferences include tables, chairs, linen, water throughout the day, pen, paper and mints. Projector, whiteboards, flip chart, printing and photocopying are all available upon request.

With both function rooms offering floor to ceiling windows, there is plenty of natural light, free WiFi and plenty of free onsite parking. Located in the golden triangle that is equal distance to Hamilton, Te Awamutu and Cambridge.
