The staff & management at The Spire Hotel are delighted to be joining the Imperium Group, following our acquisition in June 2014 by New Zealander, Andrew Cox & his wife Sarah.
The Spire Hotel is the second luxury boutique hotel on offer from the Imperium Group in New Zealand.

Overlooking the stunning and peaceful gardens of St Peter’s Church from which The Spire takes its name, the hotel features ten luxurious hotel suites measuring 60 square feet and offering the ultimate experience in stylish comfort.
The hotel also boasts a boardroom and conferencing suite as well as a first class cocktail bar & restaurant, No5 Church Lane, headed up by Executive Chef Will Eaglesfield.
