Our 2-bedroom unit was in the 3-storey building across the road from reception. It's brand new, and very comfortable, like a 2-bedroomed apartment, with a balcony. Parking is free, and it's just a few minutes' walk from the waterfront, Te Papa museum and dozens of bars and restaurants. Also, Mt Victoria is at the top of the road, about 20... More

We stayed at the Apollo for 4 nights. On the down side: the construction has turned the property into a maze. It took us 10 minutes to find our room. The map they gave us was pretty useless and, for the first time ever in New Zealand, I found the office staff pleasant, but not very helpful. Still I would... More

Only stayed for 1 night on a trip travelling through - but the location was extremely convenient for access into town, and the room was clean and tidy, and a good size. Only disappointment was that there was construction works going on, which were understandably necessary but would have been nice to of been informed of this as you could... More

Great location just outside of central Wellington - and very near the fantastic Ortega Fish Shack restaurant. Lots of parking and swift internet. Room was large with plenty of room - bed overly soft, and some building ongoing onsite (not affecting back rooms where we were) but all in all, perfectly acceptable for a one night, two day stay.

Stayed at the Apollo for two nights. Host was lovely and we had a good laugh while checking in. Again the Booking.Com photos were right on the money so got exactly what we were expecting.

A sudden death in the family created the need to visit Wellington NZ at short notice. A king Room and a Family Room were booked at the Apollo Lodge.

When visiting places like Wellington one of our key concerns is getting around. No matter how good your gps you can't match the locals who speed around their cities. So when traveling to Wellington we wanted good accommodation with parking that was centrally located. The Apollo Lodge provided this excellently. Our unit was practical, provided all we needed and meant... More

We had to spend a night in Wellington and were very happy with this choice. Handy location on Mt Victoria at bottom of Courtenay Place. Clean and comfortable room; and it was our choice to share a room with our adult son; so while it was certainly not spacious, it was OK. We love motels in NZ; self-catering is easy.... More
