We arrived here in a rainy December afternoon. We were instantly welcomed with open arms by-far the most welcoming staff ever. We were guided to our room, which was spacious and warm. Next day proved to be cloudless, and the hotel proved to be at an excellent location, with everything in Wellington within walking distance. The room was well equipped... More

Lovely to read such a review and know a warm welcome was given. Also glad the room met expectations. Beds are always a matter of taste as to firmness or such and we take a lot of effort to find middle ground so guests can have a good nights rest. Like the reviewer mentioned after exploring such a wonderful city... More

Excellent price for such a central location. Quaint refurbished apartment with old stove and fireplace. I loved it. My kids were a little unsure but I think it's cos there was no free wi fi. Apartment was huge. Kitchen a little cramped but functional and refurbished too. Entrance through front door was a lot nicer than entrance through back door.... More

Lovely review and description. Just to let guests know we do have free Wi-Fi yet like most accommodation providers it is limited so systems can handle the traffic. As time progresses like all technology it will continue to improve. Not sure about the aromas but with being so close to the city, waterfront and restaurants there is a large mix... More

Perfect location, walking distance to the CBD. Accommodation was perfect for our group - a couple and a friend sharing - and was really quiet so great nights sleep. Very friendly front desk staff. Only negative was very limited wifi, though this was a recurring theme in NZ in general!

Although slightly shabby this was the largest acommodation our family of 5 stayed in. It was like a house, kitchen, dining room, lounge with double bed and bathroom off. Separate kids room with 3 single beds (much to their delight having been sharing beds). Very central to stroll into Wellington (which incidentally is just fabulous). The accommodation was clean and... More

I believe the guest is referring to our Edwardian house.Possibly one of our more popular rooms for families, this building is 130 years old and full of character. It does offer guests plenty of room, kitchen, dining area etc, which is seldom found elsewhere. Yes Wellington is a fabulous city and right on Apollo's doorstep. As mentioned before with a... More

Friendly, clean and an awesome location! Can't ask for much more. We would stay there again in a heart beat. Parking was easy, the room plenty big enough, the little kitchen handy and the bed comfy. Wifi was a bit iffy at times and a bit of a bummer you had to pay for it.

As other reviewers point out the location and free car-parking is a benefit of Apollo Lodge, along with the wide choice of rooms. Our cleaning staff are amazing and we are very fortunate to have people that maintain the rooms in spotless order. There is a small charge for W-Fi only when guests use the FREE 200mb which is supplied... More

Very friendly, helpful service. Room was well equipped and of a high standard and very quiet. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance as was the waterfront and the Te Papa museum . We were amazed to find a motel with ample parking in such a central location

Lovely review thank you. Yes Apollo is ideally situated to take in some of the glorious amenities, restaurants bars and attractions this fabulous city has on offer.

Very good value for money - and a smile! We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment with separate dining area, kitchen and bathroom. Off-street parking, Wi-Fi and within 10 minutes walking distance to the centre and harbour of Wellington. Best choice for one or two nights if travelling by car.

Another fine review thank you.( we also think it is a great place to stay if you are not travelling by car :) Pleased the apartment suited you.

Well kept up hotel with large room. Wifi only worked outside, otherwise everything was fine. Couple of blocks to everything in the center city. The rooms are set back from quiet street so sleeping was easy.

Thank you for taking time to review Apollo Lodge Motel. yes Te Papa, the city, Oriental Bay etc is on our doorstep. This alleviates the need to waste time driving around and paying for parking.

This motel cannot be beaten for a family friendly accommodation within walking distance of the city and amenities. Good sized rooms, clean and tidy though in need of a repaint. New owners though, so new outlook. A coffee plunger would be great, please?

Lovely review thank you. Apollo is a large complex and we are constantly upgrading rooms and amenities. Currently we are just completing the refurbishment of the Majoribanks apartments. This involves tiling the entire stairwell, painting the outside and replacing windows. Further more we have installed a lift in the apartments for the benefit of guests. Once this is complete we...

Our room was large and clean. Cooking utensils provided which were very convenient. Free parking was great in expensive wellington. Location was good, near shops and restaurants, although a bit hilly. Wifi was unreliable in our room. Had to literally go outside at the carpark to get connection. Not fully free wifi. Would return.

Thanks for taking time to review Apollo Lodge. Yes Wellington is built on a hill although the Motel is just up a slight gradient and not an issue for guests normally. As mentioned previously Wi-Fi coverage is being addressed. Should any guest have a concern we will do all we can to find a solution. We also pride ourselves on... More
