Napier, Hawke’s Bay: meeting room venue.
Great venue, excellent value and you’re supporting a hard working volunteer rescue agency to provide a valuable community service. All good reasons to rent the Crew Room at the HB Coastguard Operation Centre for your meeting or workshop.
The Crew Room is on the ground floor with good access, and the building is wheelchair friendly. There is big table which sits 20, and coffee making facilities at the back of the room.
A big white board is available.
Take a walk along the harbourside during your breaks. There are also full changing and showering facilities if you plan on using the harbour for “team building” activities.
For a larger space, see our upstairs meeting room.

Beautifully preserved 1930s architecture is Napier’s special point of difference.
A national disaster resulted in Napier becoming one of the purest Art Deco cities in the world. On the morning of February 3rd 1931 a massive earthquake – 7.9 on the Richter scale – rocked Hawke’s Bay for more than three minutes. Nearly 260 lives were lost and the vast majority of buildings in the commercial centre of Napier were destroyed, either by the quake itself or the fires that followed.
Rebuilding began almost immediately, and much of it was completed in two years. New buildings reflected the architectural styles of the times – Stripped Classical, Spanish Mission and Art Deco. Local architect Louis Hay, an admirer of the great Frank Lloyd Wright, had his chance to shine. Maori motifs were employed to give the city a unique New Zealand character – for example, the ASB bank on the corner of Hastings and Emerson Streets features Maori koru and zigzags.
Napier is one of Hawke’s Bay’s “twin cities” and has a great range of accommodation and activities.
