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

A short walk from about 7000 different restaurants, free on site parking, lovely clean rooms with fresh decor, and a really good shower (in our room anyway). This is an excellent option if the thought of staying in a high rise motel doesn't float your boat, and you won't pay the usual penalty of having to stay out in the... More

We stayed in a ground level studio for two nights (April 21-22nd, 2014). Very basic but clean and lots of room. We had a. I I fridge to store our goodies. There was a nice long table to pile all our stuff on. It was quiet and the bed was comfortable. I was worried about arriving before the office closed... More

Clean. Central for Wellington and Mount Victoria. Friendly staff. Parking. WIFI available but constantly runs out and you have to keep asking for new codes, forget SKYPE or FACETIME. Secure. Comfortable.

Stayed at the Apollo Lodge Apartment. Nice place to stay at and will definitely go there again. If you are planning to stay at the apartment and don't like walking the stairs, request the lower level possible as there is no lift. But the apartment itself is very nice. Has all the kitchen utilites required for cooking, freezer, stove and... More

We stayed a few nights in a ground floor unit which has been recently refurbished and decorated. Comfy bed, plenty of space, spotlessly clean. The property is just a short walk from Courtenay Place where buses go to all destinations and with plenty of cafes and restaurants close by, the location is really good. Lovely welcome from the friendly owners.
