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...

Staying at The Dome was amazing. It has all the class of a 5 star venue with all the benefits of an apartment. The staff were friendly and accommodating and made me feel so welcome.

Superb property, perfect for hosting or individual stays as was ours. First class accommodation in a great location, central to most things but isolated enough for privacy. We had the penthouse, fantastic views and a very definite luxury decor. Beds may be the best we have had in any of our many travels, just like home.

We were with a group and had the top 2 floors which are amazing. Our suite had two bedrooms - what a gorgeous place, the kitchen is amazing, with a huge deck, two lounges and a lovely dining room in the turret. Truly unique. Being near Marine Parade means it has beautiful views of the ocean but also a bit...

A sensationally presented cocoon of elegance and style...the Dame Apartments at The Dome are beautifully appointed, fittings are bespoke luxury with great attention to detail, with access to the rooftop pool/spa The greeting staff (Jess) were patient on a slightly late arrival and more than helpful with tips on local attractions.

I ran a two day workshop in this venue. All the people who attended the workshop found it added a great deal to their experience. It made them feel enriched and cherished to be in a place that was so beautiful, with such a beautiful view and ambience, and that was also practical and in the heart of the city....
