The National Hotel plays host to a number of exclusive function spaces for your next function or event. Celebrate your birthday, engagement or special occasion in one of our unique spaces. Whether you are envisioning a cocktail setting or a casual lunch we can accommodate small groups of 10 up to large groups of 150 guests. Our canape menu is inspired by the delicious flavours of Asia with a modern twist and is accompanied by an extensive drinks list. Here at The National Hotel, we tailor packages to suit your individual needs, making the planning process easy and enjoyable.
The outdoor dining room is a space you can make entirely your own. Its contemporary design and exclusive bar access are just a few of the elements guests will love. Faint murmurs from the bustling next-door hotel set the scene, while the space also opens up onto the deck into the beer garden. The large glass doors encasing the space can be opened or closed to the elements.
