Convention sales manager, Michelle Gain says that on the weekend of the opening both the restaurant and the bar reported strong patronage and there was obviously a desire for people to come back to the hotel. “We’ve seen the same with conference groups who have used us regularly in the past, they are keen to get back to business here and also to use the Waipuna for social get-togethers and casual catch-ups with their teams. “Our first business event group came in just a week after the opening and they have actually had back to back three-day conferences.” The hotel has a totally refurbished entrance and foyer areas, while the conference rooms (which were not used during the pandemic) have been freshened up. The restaurant has been repainted, with more work in the pipeline, and the accommodation rooms are being renovated as an ongoing project. “Demand is certainly there and all the signs are that we are going to be extremely busy from February next year,” adds Gain.
