The top floor is the hero feature, with floor to ceiling windows, offering panoramic views across the runway and over the Southern Alps. A modern restaurant and social hub, Food Exchange, is the perfect place to relax and soak in the views with a glass of famous South Island wine in-hand.
The conference and meeting facilities available at the hotel range from the beautiful rooftop Tekapo room with views of the Southern Alps accommodating up to 260 guests, to dedicated boardrooms with natural light. All meeting venues are pillar-less and include broadband, wireless internet access, and the latest in-built audio visual systems.
