We stayed here for two nights in October 2012. The hotel is in the heart of Napier and is an iconic element of the town's art deco environment. The owners have restored the property beautifully - and cleverly. The property lends itself to multiple configurations making it suitable for couples, families, groups and even larger parties who could potentially book the entire property. The owners were fantastic, showing us through the property and giving us great tips on where to eat and visit. It was a pleasure to meet people who understood their business and their clientele so well.
As to our accommodation, our suite overlooked the ocean to the horizon - literally from our bed. The suite adjoined a common kitchen and sitting room ( which we also had to ourselves for the two days) and opened out on to the plunge pool and spa.
We can't recommend this property highly enough. We have stayed in a succession of 5 star accommodation this holiday and I can honestly say staying at the Dome was a real highlight of the whole trip. We don't doubt we will be back - probably with a group of friends.
Next time we plan to stay in one of the penthouse apartments which are truly fantastic.
Thanks to Alina, Brent and Kath for a fantastic stay.
