My partner and I stayed for 3 nights, and unfortunately were not happy with the room. As mentioned on their website, there is currently renovations taking place at the hotel- the addition of a new block. Unfortunately this new block is in reaching distance of our room's Windows, which meant we had noise from 8am every morning and workmen peering... More

This review has been responded to on another site and we have acknowledged the fact that the Edwardian House is a character building and we have many guests who refused to stay anywhere else. Unfortunate that the room did not meet the guests expectations. As for the building work in a few weeks we will be opening 8 brand new... More

Unfortunately we didn't have the best stay. We stayed 2 nights in room 25 which is a 2 bedroom unit in an old terraced house; we were 1 adult and 3 older teenagers. The room was cold when we arrived and just had electric wall heaters or portable oil-filled radiators, which warmed the rooms sufficiently after a while. The kitchen... More

WE are so disappointed the room did not meet the guests expectations and had a unpleasant stay. We do put on heaters and lights for all guests if arriving later during the cooler months. The Edwardian House is 100 tears old and is a character building. This comprises just 6 of the 50+rooms we do offer. Like all of us... More

Those were our criteria and Apollo was a good fit. The place was under renovation and it took a little contortion to get around. We had Room #3 which is at the back of the facilities, which is quiet and cosy although no view at all. The room is basic, has good heating which is welcome when temp was in... More

I wanted to move right in. :) The Edwardian house apartment is so spacious and beautifully atmospheric, with a nice modern bath and kitchen as a bonus. It's a great location as well, with Te Papa museum just a few minutes' walk away. The folks at reception were very helpful and stored our luggage for us when we went out... More

So pleased you enjoyed the Edwardian house. We have many regulars who will not stay anywhere else. The charm of the rooms in the house is pretty special and sets them apart from the standard Studio rooms. We appreciate the enthusiastic review thank you. More

The Apollo is ideally located, just a couple of minutes from Courtenay place. Off street parking is free. We stayed in one of the apartments, and even without heating the rooms were nice and warm despite Wellington serving up some very cold days. Noise insulation is not quite as good, so we heard the comings and goings of neighbours a... More

Very central place to stay ,great rooms and even though there were renovations going on the noise was kept to a minimum. Easily to catch a bus into town or just walk along the foreshore. Many restaurants just down the road or cook in the room.

Had a great stay of three nights in a twin studio. Beds were so comfortable and warm and the heater was on ready for our arrival which was so lovely as it was pretty cold out.

So good to find a family motel close to the city. Seperate room for kids. Had kitchen that would be good enough to cook a meal in. Comfy beds, very warm and quiet, was only 6 degrees outside! Only gripe was the grainy TV reception. Nice welcome on arrival.
