Havelock North, New Zealand
Reviewed 7 September 2015

Outstanding facilities, ideal location to the Napier waterfront and CBD, just a 2 minute walk to great restaurants. The views were virtually a 360 degree panoramic shot of not only Napier but of looking back up to the Havelock Hills and across to Cape Kidnappers.

We stayed with friends in the Cape View apartment and had a fantastic weekend. On the top floor with uninterrupted ocean views out to Caper Kidnappers. Bedrooms, lounge, dinning and kitchen all beautifully presented. The apartment was spacious luxury at its best. Highly recommend.

We stayed in the Cape View Penthouse which was stunning. It was the small things that niggles when you pay a full premium price. No 24hr service, so really needed to get there at a set time and then we were on our own for the next 2 days. The lift was out on arrival and scary to use when...

Thank you for your feedback. $160.00 per person is a fair rate for a premium penthouse apartment that sleeps 4 people with ocean views in the heart of the CBD in Napier, Hawke’s Bay.  As advertised, we are not a hotel and never pretend to be a hotel and do not advertise as a hotel. We offer the european large studio and penthouse...

Hi Tony, Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed your time with us in Napier. Yes, we are certainly not a hotel and do not position ourselves as such.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Dome in February and we especially enjoyed having laundry facilities, a pool and the central location. Great restaurants and shops are nearby and the bike rental place is next door where you can rent a bike and ride on the fantastic trails all the way out to Cape Kidnappers and the wineries.

My company hosted a wine tasting here for a conference group. The staff at The Dome were more than accommodating right from the start and went out of their way to help us. The views are amazing and the facilities opulent. We will definitely be back given the first opportunity!
