We arrived at Christchurch airport from Australia and picked up a car. This motel, like many others is within 10 mins drive from the airport. The room was very clean with the usual kitchen facilities. The bathroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Free wifi but for only one computer per room and 500mb max per day. The capacity...

Used this motel for a one night stay in Christchurch. We checked in a little later than we had arranged - our host didn't bat an eyelid. He was welcoming and friendly on a dark, stormy night. Room was huge with everything we needed, and very clean. Great location and easy to find. I thought the value for money was... More

There are many, many choices for lodging near the Apollo Motel, yet we were highly satisfied with our decision to trust the TripAdvisor reviewers and stay there. We stayed for a night at the beginning and end of our trip, relaxed knowing that we had such a nice place to sleep and get organized before leaving NZ. The kitchen was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding, we stayed in a one bedroom apartment unit and this was a nice size, we didn't use the cooking facilities as we were out most of the time. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Service was great, I only booked for 2 nights instead of 3, they had no more vacancy... More

This is the first of 6 months I will be staying here due to my work in Christchurch. I have a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor and so far I'm happy with things. For those arriving from the airport, this is very convenient as it is located on a busy road into town, but not a great deal... More

Nice motel with good sized room. WE only spent a few hours here, as were flew out of Christchurch in the wee hours of the morning. But the bed was comfortable and its location was good as several eateries were within walking distance from it. Unfortunately, the terrible weather that blew in, meant that getting to said eateries was distinctly... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel, and would happily return again on our next visit to Christchurch. The heaters had been turned on before we arrived, so the room was lovely and cosy when we walked in. The unit was spacious, clean and well equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. Noise from the busy... More

Handy to the University, Westfield Mall and Addington, the location is a real plus. And it's just a short drive to the central city. Although Riccarton Road is busy, the rooms are surprisingly quiet thanks to double glazing. The entrance is just around the corner off a side street which makes getting in and out easier than having to negotiate... More
