Cape view suite was absolutely beautiful. The Dome is in the perfect position in Napier. The staff could not be more helpful. Excellent stay. If you intend to visit for Art Deco weekend you will be able to be part of everything from your own balcony. Need to book early.

Could not be more central, beautiful views looking at the ocean and a bit of the Marine Parade,from our Penthouse Suite, very accommodating Staff Susan and Alice. A nice touch with the champers in the fridge and muesli for breakfast, very nice furniture and linen, a little expensive, but worth it. It was a little noisy in the master ensuite...

The apartment is expensive but well worth every penny. The apartments are situated within walking distance from all the cafes, restaurants and attractions. We were welcomed on arrival and the room was beautiful all you could want except one thing !! We wished we could have stayed longer.

This property was quite expensive however, if you want location, space and a view to die for this is the place to be. We stayed here just before New Year's and is overlooks the main road and the amphitheater - no need to leave at all. Once you close the windows and doors though you have pretty much complete silence....

Large modern rooms in a 1930's Art Deco apartment building that faces the Pacific Ocean. Right in the CBD, close to restaurants & cafes. There's a rooftop plunge pool & hot spa. There's no restaurant but there is so much on offer at local cafes & restaurants and of course all the wineries that you don't miss having one in...

We had a fabulous stay at The Dome. The apartments are beautifully furnished with loads of space and excellent bathrooms. We really enjoyed the opening up onto the private deck and pool area. Fantastic location for both amazing views along Napier Beach and being right in the city centre for shopping and dining was awesome.

We found the lady who greeted and welcomed us very warm and genuine. The design and décor of the Dome is just beautiful and has that elegant feel and look. We found the studio we stayed in very classy, cosy and warm. It was spacious and very clean. The shared kitchenette was very handy to cook our special meals. It...

These are beautifully appointed modern apartments within one Napier's most beautiful art deco buildings in the most central of locations close to Marine Parade and all the major downtown attractions. There are lovely views of the beach and bay. We were treated to an upgrade to one of the penthouse apartments and these are certainly the pick of the accommodations....
