We stayed here in the school holidays in April 2015. A very warm and inviting place, staff were very helpful & obliging. Very comfortable accommodation. Only thing is, be careful in the shower, water has a tendency to go everywhere.

This is the second time we have stayed here with a family group. The 3 bedroom apartment is great for this and the staff are very accommodating. The room sleeps up to 9 guests but there is only one bathroom (loo included) which is interesting in the mornings but doable.

Stayed for the long weekend with family, great service provided even we arrived late. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The busiest shopping mall in Christchurch is just opp our motel and there are a lots of restaurants and bars are around and it's really close to the bus stop too. Overall, it was a excellent...

4 night stay to see daughter , close to university, shopping malls and railway station. Hosts were very pleasant and studio unit on ground floor was very comfortable and clean. Kitchen much larger than expected and wet area bathroom a good size. Although on a major road the noise was not as bad as we thought might be. Unit could... More

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,...
