Organising a conference, team meeting or incentive package why not try The Duke of Marlborough Hotel? Not only is it located on the waterfront in Russell in the beautiful Bay of Islands but it is New Zealand’s first licence hotel - something just a bit different. The Duke’s ornate function room can cater for small conferences in the private dining room which seats up to 20 or larger events in our main function room which caters up to 140.
Team building activities are plentiful within the Bay of Islands and our friendly staff will be most happy to assist with booking of all activities during your stay with us.
The Duke’s grand ballroom with ornate ceilings, low hanging chandeliers and polished wooden floor boards opens up directly onto a sun filled deck over looking the sea. The ballroom is filled with individually upholstered chairs seating up to 150 guests comfortably or 250 for a standing cocktail and canape function. We can also cater for larger groups seating up to 300 guests across the ballroom and restaurant over the quieter winter months of the year. Perfect for those looking for private dining or function venues to host a Gala dinner or special event.
With award winning chefs and restaurant managers, the Duke offers exquisite cuisine and exceptional service. The Duke has an onsite function manager to help plan the menu and all other details of your gala dinner to ensure a smooth, professional experience.
