Apollo lodge motel was only few steps from Wellington downtown, yet it had free parking spaces. Our room was spacious enough and clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. There were 3 washing machines and dryers for guests use, they costed only few dollars per load.

My partner and I stayed the night at the Apollo recently when in Wellington. The motel was very handy to Wellington Central City and an easy walk to all the amenities. The unit we stayed in had been recently modernised and was very nice. Lovely comfortable bed very nice bathroom and the unit was very quiet. I would highly recommend... More

As always we appreciate the review and highlighting our proximity to Wellington amenities. Also we are delighted the guest found the room comfortable and quiet. Just a note on the Wi-Fi for future guests, we offer 200mb Free. It is based on use rather than time. More

This motel was clean, neat and good value for money. It's in a great location, easy access to the Mt Victoria lookout (recommended view) and an easy walk to the city centre and the food and drink hub. The manager was helpful and gave us some great tips. We will definitely be back!

Agree the view from the top of Mt Victoria is awesome. Not only of the city but also surrounding bays. Further highlights what a great place Wellington is to visit and live in. Apollo is well positioned to enjoy all its amenities with just a few minutes walk. More

Excellent location 1 block from CBD, cafes and restaurants. Safe area, Mt Victoria a trendy suburb. Car parking available. Friendly and helpful owners, even when I arrived late. Spacious double room with large bed, shower and sink/tea/coffee facilities. Basic facilities. Not a flash hotel, rooms are aging a bit, some corners are a bit dingy. Clean and tidy though, quiet...

What an excellant little motel. Friendly staff. Our room was very clean tidy and comfortable, it had all that was required for our trip to Wellington for the Billy Idol concert. It was very quiet considering how close we were to the city. Great location, Only a short walk to Courtney place, Te Papa and the TSB stadium. Will definitely... More

The motel is ideally located near downtown and Mount Victoria. You get 200 mb free wifi and some milk upon check in. A pretty big room with refrigerator and microwave. The room was cleaned when we arrived back to the room at one o'clock. A good shower but the bed was quite soft. We recommend this motel.

Great location, easy walk to shops, restaurants and the wharf. The room was clean and huge, we ended up having a big two-bed apartment. A little noisy as it is close to a big street, but nothing to complain about really. Good value for money

So pleased the guests enjoyed their stay at Apollo Lodge. Our Edwardian House does offer space and charm for up to 5 people. Street noise is unavoidable being as Apollo is in the city and we do endeavour to mitigate the noise where possible with heavy curtains and double glazing is some rooms. If guests do want quiet we have... More

Room was clean and appeared to be recently refurbished. Facilities were basic but adequate. This is a good central location close to Ta Papa Museum and about 30 minutes walk to cable car to the Botanical gardens. Car parking was very tight as there were not enough spaces for each unit. Easy driving distance to the Interlander ferry. We were... More

We thank the guest for taking time to review and highlighting Apollo Lodge's excellent location. Parking is free and we always have enough spaces for all guests. I might add that we do offer complimentary Wi-Fi it appears there was a misunderstanding here. More

We stayed for 3 nights in the old house. It was very comfortable and the only complaint was that the front bedroom was a little noisy. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Easy walking distance to the museum, restaurants, shopping and food supplies. The owners are a very nice couple who were very helpful. Parking is free... More

This was probably the most disappointing accommodation that we stayed in during our 15 days in New Zealand. The location is great- but it has very little else going for it. The room we had was dismal at best. Fortunately, it was just a 1 night stay. There might have been better rooms but the one assigned to us with... More

How sad that the guest was disappointed with their stay. We would hope that whatever room guests stay in it would be clean and suitable, (as often noted by so many other reviewers). Apollo is committed to always up grading and maintain rooms to a high standard. Having just finished the complete refurbishment of one block plans are underway for... More
