No matter what your function’s purpose, a business meeting or event, our Napier function rooms are set in the most stunning location with quality accommodation on our doorstep and breathtaking views.


This Hawke’s Bay function venue is ideally located on the shore line of Napier, the Art Deco capital, with stunning ocean views across Hawke Bay. Only a walkway separates our venue from the sea.

Napier’s beautiful CBD with its many attractions, activities, shops and restaurants is located just a short stroll from the Napier Conference Centre. Choose from a large range of quality accommodation right on our door step.

Napier Conference Centre and Scenic Hotel Te Pania are the perfect venue partnership in Napier. Being directly opposite each other allows for easy transition from conference room to guest room.

Car-parking is offered in the car park situated behind the Ocean Spa Complex with access off Marine Parade 400m north of the Centre.  A car parking pass is available at Venue reception for attendees. Please note: Street parking areas are 2 hours only.


The views from many of our function room windows to the ocean are simply breathtaking! An unobstructed 180 degree view of beauty from Cape Kidnappers to Mahia Peninsula.


Our Hawke’s Bay function rooms provide ample space and flexible options to suit any occasion. Choose from our grand Ballroom, Exhibition Hall or Gallery for larger events. We also have two well-equipped function rooms ideal as Breakout Rooms and a Boardroom. Perhaps you would like to consider a marquee to host a tradeshow or dining function adjacent to our function venue with integrated access to our facilities.

Our aim is to exceed your expectations and those of your guests! Our skilled functions team can bring to life any theme and will work alongside you to achieve your objectives, timeframe and budget.
