We stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and had a well equipped kitchen and bathroom. We were able to park the car near our room. It is only a few minutes walk to restaurants, bars and shops. There was a construction site in the middle of the complex which was very noisy in the morning.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The unit we stayed in had two separate bedrooms, one of which had a double bed and the other two singles. There is also a bathroom and well equipped kitchen.

No complaints from us. We wanted somewhere central that could comfortably sleep 5 of us, planning only to return at night to sleep. It was perfect for what we needed. Friendly service, comfy beds and super clean. Quick, easy walk from most places we visited. Would definitely recommend!

Very pleasant owner. Excellent facilities, comfortable beds. Parking outside the door. Walking distance (with walker) to excellent restaurant and choice of others in central Welly. Quiet and sheltered. No problem getting first in the queue for the ferry to South Island. Anne.

Stayed for a couple of nights. You could not get a better located motel in Wellington. Right in the heart of the city within very easy walking off all the attractions, although Mt Victoria would be a challenge. Good room, clean and tidy with comfortable bed.

We thank the guests for reiterating what so many people comment on Apollo Lodge. That is the location and cleanliness. The lookout at Mt Victoria above us is easily reached by vehicle for those who prefer not to take the 40 min walk. More

Apollo lodge is relatively cheap but offers all the basic anemities including free internet, parking (this is incredibly expensive in Wellington, with some streets charging 4 dollars an hour), and a kitchen if you choose to upsize the room. The location is incredible, with a 1 minute walk to the chippery, one of the best fish and chip shops in... More

I spent one night at this lodge before heading with the ferry to the south island. The place, at walking distance to the center (Te Papa Museum is 15 minutes away), is easy to find and there is a large enough parking reserved for customers just on the other side of the street. Check in was professional, but it won’t... More

Room for 6 was comfy and spacious for the one night. Friendly staff. Location very easy to find, near downtown and walkable to many sites. Walk up the hill to the Mt Victoria overlook for a great view. Great value for price. Construction underway to expand but there was no noise when we stayed. Parking was tight.
