A desperate shortage of conference space has been addressed by Heartland Hotel Cotswold on Papanui Road.
Part of the 100% New Zealand owned Scenic Hotel Group chain, Heartland Hotel Cotswold is pleased to announce the reopening of the Marlowe Room – one of the property’s two conference rooms.
The hotel is perfectly placed just a stones throw from Christchurch’s central city, and close to one of the city’s favourite social hubs, Merivale.
Daily inquiries for meeting and conference space have to date met with disappointment, as the room has been used by the Japanese Consulate since 23 February, 2011.
General Manager Patrick Moittie says that with the completion of the consulate’s new offices inside the city’s four avenues, the Marlowe Room has been given a spruce up with some new paint and is now available to the public.
“We have kept the style and feel of the Marlowe Room to reflect that of the hotel as a whole,” says Mr. Moittie. “We are very proud of the unique character of Heartland Hotel Cotswold – the Marlowe Room draws on the heritage and styling of the property to bring a unique, intimate space for any sort of function.
The room holds 50 attendees comfortably, theatre style and Mr. Moittie says, “it can be rearranged to work for board meetings or more informal soirées of a smaller size. And of course we can cater for any function or conference on site – from light lunches and tea and coffee, to full meals at either end of the day.”
The Marlowe Room has separate men’s and women’s bathrooms, and is now the only conference room in Heartland Hotel Cotswold. “Our other conference room – what was the Westminster Room – has been successfully transformed into the St Germain restaurant. The reopening of our hotel’s dedicated conference room will be met with a great sigh of relief from conference and event organisers across the city, I’m sure.”
