We rented three apartments for a golf weekend for 8 guys in early December. The set-up with the two penthouse apartments and the BBQ/pool area was fantastic. Right in the center of town if you need a bite to eat. We ended up having a few drinks on the balcony of the apartments on both nights as they were the...

The Dome was exceptional place to stay. For a large group it is the only way to go. There's plenty of space and it would be ideal for staff away day. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to help, the accommodation exquisite and the location perfect. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Dome over 6 months ago now but I just have to write a review because it was such a pleasant stay! We stayed in the two bedroom apartment with the plunge pool and it was so luxurious! It has a lovely view too and is so conveniently located (right above Starbucks!). The manager there, Karla, is...

The Cape View Penthouse at The Dome, Napier is situated along Marine Parade across from the Information Centre right in the centre of town. When you walk into the apartment…..all you can see is the sea and the sky from the large glass doors opening to the spacious deck complete with table and chairs and a 'loveliness of ladybirds'. Inside...

We had a pull out bed for our 10-year old, which was large and very comfortable. The lcoation is great - parking was a bit of a challenge, but it...

We chose The Dome for its proximity and style. A lovely venue for our event. The option to provide our own catering was perfect. Great service was provided and we were well looked after. First class amenities and everything is thought of. We would recommend this venue and hope to come again.

The Dome would have to be THE BEST place to stay in Napier. We stayed in the Cape View Penthouse which was just superb. Fortunately it is away from some of the construction noise that is happening at street level.Everything has been thought of ( except tissues and matches). The heated floors in the bathrooms were truly appreciated, the air...

We had the pleasure of staying in one of the penthouse suites at the Dome for two amazing nights. Capeview Penthouse offers extensive views to Cape Kidnappers and the surrounding buildings of Napier City. The suite has all the luxuries and allows you to have an intimate, relaxing stay.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful property which effortlessly fuses history with modern, luxurious facilities.

Super comfy beds, gorgeous...
