We attended a function in one of The Dome apartments. The central location, view, comfort and style are unsurpassed in Napier. To see the moon rising over the sea horizon was magical. And to have the pathway on the foreshore just 100 metres away for a walk along the ocean edge, is an opportunity for those who can tear themselves...

I booked seven of us at The Dome, in Hastings, Napier in celebration of mum's 85th birthday. Located in the very heart of the city beach front. The Dome itself is a heritage building and an iconic landmark that can be seen for miles. It has always astounded me to see places like this transformed into something truly fabulous and...

Ideal for visitors to Napier in the heart of the city and opposite the beach. Lots of activity happening in Napier over the weekend. Loved that Lonestar is right underneath as Lonestar is our favorite family restaurant. Accommodation equipped with necessities. Staff are wonderful and so accommodating. We were here to celebrate our mummy's 85th Birthday so everything was so...

Having stayed in hotels round the world (inlcuding 6 star in Dubai) it is great to see that New Zealand can step up to the global plate. Absolutely fantastic location and great value. The apartment had 360 views and was huge. Tastefully decorated and all the required facilities. Will definately be staying here again.

The Dome is well located, on Marine Parade, and is quality accommodation. I was given an unsolicited upgrade to an apartment. The bedroom and bathroom alone were enormous with quality furnishings. The bathroom was well appointed. I didn't spend much time in the main room as it was a quick 1 night stay. Great views to the ocean and well...

One of the loveliest buildings in Napier. When the sunrise hits the Dome it is gorgeous and the view of the Pacific Ocean is beautiful. We booked the "hotel" not knowing what to expect and were surprised to realize that it is more an apartment building than a hotel. We were asked to be quiet as we went down the...

One of the bedrooms had no air conditioning. A new one had been ordered but that didn't help us any. The room without air was big with a nice bathroom and a patio. The other room was very small. It is more suited to a family rather than two couples or 4 single women traveling together. There was no one...

We stayed here 2 nights in the Dame studio 2, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ailne contacted us to arrange an arrival time, and she was there to meet us. There is a parking bay immediately outside for unloading, and either on street parking (free after 6 p.m. till 8 a.m.) or a reserved paying parking space. It is not a...

We only stayed for one night in the apartment so probably didn't really benefit from all its charms (though laundry facilities were very useful!). It is really spacious, has fantastic views and the lady who met us was lovely. However, no parking on site so I dropped off the bags and drove to the lot where two spaces were reserved...

We stayed at the Dome in September as a couple, with a 6 year old and an infant. The Dome was an ideal place for a family with its centrality being very close to kids activities, and restaurants. The rooms were very spacious and modern, with all of the kitchen amenities you need. The off-site car parking is a minor...
