Paekakariki Hill Rd was briefly shut on Monday morning as Fire and Emergency put out a fire at The Lodge at Pauatahanui Inlet.
Senior station officer David Campbell said Fire and Emergency was alerted to the fire about 6am on Monday.
When crews arrived, flames were coming out of the southwest side of the conference area.
At least 10 fire trucks plus extras were called in.
The fire was largely contained to the laundry and surrounding area thanks to a quick response and working alarms.
“The guys worked really hard.”
Nobody was in the area the fire was in when it began.
The cause of the fire would be investigated.
He understood the conference centre would be up and running again soon.
The road reopened about 6.45am.
