The Spencer Hotel A Great Option this Festive Season

 If you are looking for one of the best dining and event experiences as we come into the festive season, then look no further! The team at Channel Mag have discovered it right here under our noses on the Shore – The Spencer Hotel in the heart of Takapuna.

With great event spaces, superb catering, bars and award-winning Thyme Restaurant, 'The Spencer' has just about every base covered.

Christmas Functions

If you are tasked with finding a venue for your Christmas Party, then The Spencer is a great option. Your crew can celebrate in style at The Spencer with a mouthwatering Christmas buffet followed by a night of dancing and being merry!

Christmas packages with all the bells (and whistles!) are available from just $85 per person. This includes – A welcome drink on arrival; Christmas decorations with table centre pieces; Christmas cracker with each place setting; Personalised printed menus; Venue hire; Christmas themed buffet menu; Dance floor; Background music throughout dinner.

This is based on a cash bar, but there are also great food and beverage packages priced from $115 per person.

Your team will love The Spencer as a venue. It caters for all ages and those who want to continue on afterwards can stroll along to the Takapuna strip, or take a very quick trip into town. Some may choose to spend the night at The Spencer, taking advantage of the special accommodation rates that are available.

Christmas Day with Family and Friends

Christmas Day is a very special time at The Spencer as well – and a popular annual event.

There will be a 'Family Buffet Lunch and Dinner" – with lots of family fun. Santa will be visiting at lunch time giving gifts to children 12 and under and there is face painting from 12.30 to 2pm.

The Buffet dinner at Thyme Restaurant is the ideal family dinner on Christmas day.

Special accommodation rates also apply over this period for relatives and friends visiting from out of town.

The Spencer awarded by Be Accessible Movement

During 2014 the team at The Spencer have also been working hard on improving the facility in terms of accessibility. 

They were thrilled to initially achieve a bronze level as an Accessible Organisation, but decided to push on harder. The result has been the achievement of silver status after a second inspection as a result of areas of improvement being highlighted. These areas were completed end of June and silver was achieved in July. Improvements included signage around the hotel highlighting accessible areas, website development including captions on photos and videos as well as the inclusion of accessible info on collateral material.
