Excellent motel within easy walking distance to all that Wellington has to offer. Fabulous modern, spacious rooms with all facilities. Great wi fi to keep in touch and beautiful comfy beds. Can thouroughly recommend for any one looking for that extra bit of comfort in a great location.

Four of us stayed here for 2 nights while watching West Ham play in Wellington. It was very good value for money, clean and comfortable accommodation, free parking and free wireless voucher, Everything we needed in a motel and would highly recommend, even though the lady on reception is a Leeds supporter.

Dennis W has got this spot-on. All the favourable reviews mean that it is no longer a "hidden" gem but it is excellent in all ways. The location is great for walking out to explore the city and for a huge range of restaurants and yet it is quiet. There is free parking with the rooms, which are newly re-furbished,... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The decor is modern and clean. The room was spacious with a large bathroom as well. It warmed up quickly. Convenient kitchenette that had everything we needed. Once we parked our car we found we didn't need it for the next three days. The area is full of restaurants. The waterfront and also the general... More

I visited Wellington with my two children and need a motel near the city. Came across Apollo Lodge by chance. Warm and helpful welcome, fantastic room, warm and comfy beds. had all mod cons if we had wanted to stay longer. Very Clean and tidy. Short distance from the centre Highly Reccomended

With the raving reviews on TripAdvisor it is not a hidden gem anymore, but it is still a gem. Not fancy, but clean, comfortable rooms for a affordable prices. Location is excellent, very central, still remote and quite. On top the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We arrived rather late after a long day of driving only to realize... More

We stayed here for one night and it was fine for a short stopover. The staff were very helpful and the rooms (1 bedroom family suite). Only a short walk to the city centre and close to museum and restaurants. The only issue was a bit of noise but otherwise would recommend.

An excellent motel with very clean, comfortable accommodation. Very quiet. The rooms were warm and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchenette had a two hob cooker, microwave and fridge. The only downside was that there was no utensils to cook anything in the microwave - no glass or plastic bowl, so unable to do beans on toast or scrambled... More

This was a late booking for us, and a little more than we would normally spend. It cannot be argued that the place is great value, but it is nicely fitted out, clean and the staff friendly. The best part of the motel is its location. A 2 min walk to the embassy and 7 to Te Papa. We have... More

The location is to die for! We got a late reservation, and were so grateful! We had a room on the street, and as is noted in other reviews, it is a bit noisy. You can walk to everywhere, and really appreciated the on site parking. We would still go back - cute little place in the heart of the... More
