Always looking for three things in a motel: Clean, safe and cheap. Apollo Lodge Motel met all those standards easily during our nine-nights. It's centrally located and easy walking distance to everything including the Te Papa Museum, downtown and a lot of restaurants. The Apollo is highly recommended. Motel Internet is expensive in New Zealand. Luckily, a 1 gigabyte allotment... More

We arrived late and managers had put heater on in our room which was pleasant. They had emailed me earlier after I advised we would not arrive until after 11.00 pm and they gave me instructions on where I would find key to our unit. Beds were comfy. Bathroom was large with a decent sized shower although waterpressure wasn't that... More

A bitsy motel of sorts but we had booked the old villa upstairs with two bedrooms. Nicely done out, with a microwave and fridge and basic cooking facilities, good for breakfast or reheating, but that's about it. You need to use the sink in the bathroom. Facing the road it was a little noisy with a lot of pedestrian traffic... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Apollo Lodge Motel. It was easy to find, very conveniently located, very clean, comfortable and the staff were really friendly and accommodating. We had only booked for one night but decided to stay longer in Wellington as it is such a lovely capital. The Motel accommodated us for a further two nights. The... More

Overall this motel is in a good location. The rooms were clean and a good size. However it was difficult to manage the room temperature it was either way too hot (with heater on) or way too cold (heater off). So i would either wake up sweating and dehydrated or freezing cold. I wouldn't not recommend staying here in general... More

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
