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... More

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.... More

The Dome is boutique accommodation located in central Napier, incredibly handy to great cafés and restaurants, walks and shops. The positives of the accommodation was the lovely bedding and comfortable bed. The room was clean and tidy and very large. Even though you are right in the heart of the city it was incredibly quiet. Wifi worked well and was... More

We stayed in Dame Suite 2. Very interesting building, definitely felt more like apartments than a hotel. Our suite was very large and well appointed. Bed was fabulous, amenities were very nice, bathroom was large and they even provided us with muesli and a bottle of champagne! Spa was a nice touch and the pool (although very small) looked clean...

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... More

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... More

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.

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.
