To us, everyone’s local.

The way we approach functions and events at Hāwea Hotel is pretty much the the way we approach everything…we strive to be generous and energetic.

We want this to come across in every experience we create – from our food, to our service, the warmth of our spaces and the way we’re talked about in our community.

We offer custom, tailor-made packages to suit all types of dining. From casual to formal, plated to sharing, small gatherings to large functions, and off-site catering.

We can offer bespoke menus to suit all tastes, ranging from a 1 choice set menus to a 7 course tasting menu, and everything else in between. In our menus, our kitchen team use the highest quality,  fresh seasonal ingredients.

We have plenty of space, are very experienced, and happy to set up for all the usual parties, as well as whatever else you care to throw our way.

Quiz Nights

Hāwea Hotel’s quiz night had a brief hiatus, but returned recently by popular demand. Rally some mates or rock up and join a team – the trivia is challenging and the prizes are definitely worth the hustle.

Our Quiz Night will be back!!
We want to ensure we are following the Level 2 Government Restrictions, stay tuned on our social media for when Quiz Nights will be returning!
