We stayed here 2 nights in the Dame studio 2, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ailne contacted us to arrange an arrival time, and she was there to meet us. There is a parking bay immediately outside for unloading, and either on street parking (free after 6 p.m. till 8 a.m.) or a reserved paying parking space. It is not a...

We only stayed for one night in the apartment so probably didn't really benefit from all its charms (though laundry facilities were very useful!). It is really spacious, has fantastic views and the lady who met us was lovely. However, no parking on site so I dropped off the bags and drove to the lot where two spaces were reserved...

We stayed at the Dome in September as a couple, with a 6 year old and an infant. The Dome was an ideal place for a family with its centrality being very close to kids activities, and restaurants. The rooms were very spacious and modern, with all of the kitchen amenities you need. The off-site car parking is a minor...

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.

Perfection! We stayed in the Cape View with friends, what a fantastic set up. Private yet social. Weather wasn't the best on the first night but the apartment was warm and inviting. Gorgeous décor, loved the bed and stunning views from the lounge through to our bedroom. We dined on the next floor down in the Grand Dining Room for...

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.

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.
