My hubby and I stayed in a 2bdrm apartment with our almost 2yo for 3 nights. It suited us perfectly. Close to everything we needed access to - waterfront, te papa, Courtney place and bus stop. Comfortable beds, great shower, warm and quiet. We really appreciated the daily service. Friendly staff. Would not hesitate to recommend this as a top... More

The rooms are simple but clean, with microwave and refrigerator (don't press the button marked 'do not turn off,' it is the fridge). It was on a busy street but the room was quiet. Parking is tight but street parking is allowed -watch the utility pole!, and they have an extra lot to park across the way. A dairy (convenience... More

Thank you for your review and pointing out the facilities. Apart from the dairy there is a very good New World just 2 mins walk. We do recommend using our parking at the motel or in our apartment complex directly across the road. Thanks again. More

We stayed at this motel twice over a one month period. We are regular travellers to Wellington staying on average 1 or 2 weekends per month. We have stayed at many different accommodations throughout the last 3 years. For some reason we had never previously fancied staying at the Apollo based purely upon 1st pictures of the outside found on... More

We thank the guest for taking time to review and acknowledging all that is good with Apollo Lodge. Perhaps the Chippery is reason enough!!! The comfort cleanliness and location is always high on guests lists and we are proud of our hardworking staff for maintaining such a standard. Look forward to seeing you back soon. More

This place is really central, easy walk into town. Large supermarket within walking distance. Thai restaurant nearby was excellent. Why only one easy chair? And why is it me that always ends up laying on the bed!

ApolloManager, Manager at Apollo Lodge Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for taking time to review and once again pointing out Apollo Lodges great location. Not sure what room guest was in as we do try to make rooms as comfortable as possible. Maybe that an extra chair could have taken up too much space. We will attempt to address that where possible. More

This is a comfortable property in a great location. We found it a little noisy first thing in the morning with the 'neighbours' showering and moving around talking etc, however overall I could recommend this as a good place to stay. Couple of areas that need a small cosmetic fix up but the room was sparkly clean which is the... More

This hotel was centrally-located and reasonably priced. It had parking, a kitchen and a comfortable room. When staying, definitely eat across the street at Ortega "fish shack," which is definitely not a shack.

We stayed for a night and my wife was fascinated by the room nearest to the reception. However since this room is by the main room, we were constantly disturbed by noise and that night by a group of college age pupils talking loudly. However other than that, there is a homely touch to this place. A bit run down... More

Thanks for your review. We did have a number of excitable college children in for a Shakespeare festival and we would have gladly asked them to keep the noise down if we knew. Pleased the guest enjoyed the great location Apollo offers. More

We were fortunately recommended to try the Apollo, and it was more than we expected. We stayed in a 1 Bedroom Apartment across the road from the main complex - where they also have 2 and 3 Bedroom Apartments. Ours was clean, quiet, comfortable and came with great off-street parking. It was also only a short walk from the entertainment... More

A real pleasure to stay in, comfortable warm beds, very well appointed, spacious and airy. The location for convenience to central city couldn't be bettered but far enough away not to be bothered by noise. Very pleasant and easy to deal with owners and we look forward to staying there again on our next Wellington visit.

Yes I agree with almost everything positive everyone said here. No need to repeat it. We stayed for three nights in a studio unit (number 3) and had a very good time.
