The Te Runanga Tea House is one of Rotorua’s most nostalgic venues and is located in the heart of the historical Government Gardens, alongside Rotorua’s city centre. Built in 1903 as a tea pavilion, Te Runanga (The Meeting House) served as a social centre for spa facilities, where visitors could relax early last century.
Due to its unique character and setting, the Te Runanga Tea House specialises in incentive and executive dinners, while this historically protected place is also a favourite for retreats, cocktail events and weddings. Its location mid-way between the Rotorua Convention Centre and the Energy Events Centre, combined with its charm and character, means the building attracts many smaller conference and incentive groups seeking something extra special.
The Te Runanga Teahouse can accommodate 50 delegates theatre style, 30 in a classroom setting, up to 70 for cocktails or 40 for an intimate dinner event.
Our caterers can provide quality food and beverage services to meet the needs of your event.
