Thank you for taking time to review and we agree entirely with your comments. The Back door is due for replacement and this is going to be attended to immediately after we finish completely refurbishing 2 other family units which are currently underway. As the cheese ad says 'Good things take time". Apart from the door yes the Edwardian house... More

Stayed in the recently renovated two bedroom apartment which was nice and clean and tidy. Nice sized lounge and dining and not too many things around for our 2 year old to touch! Beds were relatively comfortable and having two bathrooms was good. Very good location in easy walk to New World and heaps of cafes/resturants and Te Papa. One... More

Many thanks for the review and sharing experiences. Car parking is a major issue in Wellington and we are delighted we can assist with free parking for guests. Sorry about restaurant recommendations but we are so handy to many eateries it is somewhat difficult unless we know what guests preferences are. Toilet seat was attended to that day. More

Tucked in central Wellington under Mt Victoria I was pleasantly surprised with this place. The rooms are large, clean and bathrooms recently renovated. Service upon arrival was excellent, very friendly and continued to be so throughout my 5 night stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Even better there are wonderful eateries nearby (carefully explained by the gentleman checking me in)... More

Many thanks for your review and highlighting Apollo Lodge's proximity to many of Wellingtons attractions. With Courtney Place just 200 mtrs away guests will have a wide array of restaurants and bars to choose from. Agree the stunning waterfront is just around the corner and a wonderful place to wander and connect with this fine city. More

It was really nice, the location was great and the hosts charming. I would definitely stay here again. It has everything you need and is close to the main attractions. Stayed for a week but might stay longer next time.

So pleased the guest appreciated the wonderful location of Apollo Lodge. It is on the doorstep for many of Wellingtons fine attractions, restaurants, bars and waterfront walks. Often we have guests stay for a few days and wish their trip was longer. Thank you for taking time to review. More

We really like this lodge, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are neat and clean. Large bathroom and well equipped kitchen. Close to shop, restaurants and pubs. Must try the fish and chip shop close by the motel. Cheap and fresh $10 for blue cod fish and chip or $10 grill salmon.

Pleased the reviewer and others appreciate our location along with the cleanliness of the rooms. Although our cleaning staff are seldom seen by guests they work very hard to ensure guests have a comfortable stay.

We booked this 'family room' (two bedrooms) for five adults. The blurb saying that the couch would open as a bed. I would suggest that it should only be for two adults and two small children. Forget the couch option. There were two bathrooms, however, the second bathroom consisted of a shower in a bath that was very high to... More

We thank the reviewer for the comprehensive review and also the kind words. Just to clarify we do not have a room 55. We suggest that especially for large family groups just contact us and we can offer a number of options depending on availability. Apollo Lodge is situated in the city and therefore Free car-parking is an added bonus.... More

The location was good, near Te Papa and restaurants, there was also a New World supermarket close by. It was ideal for the family as there were plenty of beds (one queen and 3 singles in the other room), which is often difficult to get in most places. It was also very affordable considering location and the number of beds.... More

Stayed for one night on 23rd April. Easy to find, staff helpful and friendly. Free car parking was a real bonus. Perfect location, plenty of restaurants within walking distance as was the waterfront and the fantastic Te papa museum. Large and well equipped room, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds. We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the motel is at night... More

We stayed two nights in a two-bedroom apartment in the Edwardian house. The building itself is quite old and rattly, but the flat is spacious and comfortable - ideal for a family.

Appreciate the guest taking time to share their experience and pointing out the benefits of our wonderful Edwardian house. Like many older wooden buildings the house does 'Breathe' and this is one of the features that gives it a lovely warm homely feeling. More
