Masters Hall Exterior Masters Hall in Autumn

Previously the Pahiatua Hospital for almost 100 years, Masters Hall has been charmingly restored and refurbished to create comfortable accommodation and conference facilities, and is rich in history and atmosphere! Our unique venue has everything you need in one location: landscaped gardens, a reception hall that can comfortably seat 70 - 75 guests (or up to 100 in a less formal arrangement) onsite accommodation for up to 100 people, assorted wedding and event decor hire, and a variety of flexible options to suit your budget, and requirements.

On a beautifully landscaped 10 acre site, with onsite parking for cars, trucks, buses and camper-vans, Masters Hall is an enchanting venue for group accommodation. Our very affordable rates allow you the privacy and convenience of hiring a single room, or the entire complex for your stay, which allows us to tailor it for your individual needs.

So, if you are looking for somewhere to hold a family reunion, wedding, training seminar, festival, weekend retreat, workshop, or conference, or house your community groups, sports teams, school camps, or work crews, we have the perfect venue for your special occasion.

At Masters Hall, we can help you create a relaxed and unique event, ensuring it is as stress-free as possible. We are happy to be involved as much, or as little as you choose.
