We had 1 night stay here with our family and were super impressed with the staff who enabled us to have an early checkin due to arriving in ChCh for a family event. The unit was very clean and tidy and well setup for all 6 of us. Street noise was loud with the windows open but very quiet once... More

The reception lady was helpful and friendly, had a upstairs unit, a one bedroom unit, though the double bed was in the lounge, 2 singles in the bedroom. Kinda expect a sofa in the living area. Street noise was pretty bad, so if you don’t like street noise that would be a worry. Everything nice and tidy, plenty of plates... More

We stayed here because it was close to the airport ( and on the main airport shuttle road). We had the disabled room 4, not by request. This room is dark as the stairs outside block the light so we would not want this room again. Outside the other window was the garden. The upstairs units would be a better... More

Spotless, comfortable beds, with everything you need for a short stay. Seemed to get through the broadband allocation pretty quickly and seating limited but otherwise difficult to find too much to fault. Will stay again

With two families, including 2 kids, finding accommodation in Chch was a challenge, but Apollo had a 3 room unit. It was comfortable and quiet, and well appointed. Could perhaps do with another bathroom but otherwise all good. The cleaners could have been a little more thorough over the 6 days but nothing insurmountable. 10 minutes walk to Riccarton Mall,...

Surprisingly quiet being situated on Riccarton Road, the Apollo was clean and spacious for a small unit. Prices were great for the quality and the design of the building it was quite different but nice. The beds are comfortable and the service was great.

We stayed for two nights and were in the accessible unit which is small, and adjoining the managers garage which is open during the day and unsightly. On both nights had to deal with bathroom floods due to showerhead malfunctions and the bathroom layout. There is also a venetian blind behind the bed which you cannot avoid. Location is good,...

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
