My husband and I recently stayed at the Apollo Lodge Motel while we were in Wellington helping celebrate a friend’s 60th birthday. Being our first time in Wellington, we found the motel to be in a great location, central to everything. It is within easy walking distance of the central business district and a multitude of restaurants and cafes. And... More

Stayed here as a group of 5 in a 2 bedroomed unit. Had 2 bathrooms in it & perfect for what we needed- the only problem was there was a big skylight in the lounge so you woke up with the sun if sleeping in there. Walking distance to the popular Courtney Place. I would be back :)

We stayed for 3 nights and found it to be a great place to rest your head. The room was very clean, large and warm. The staff were friendly and more than happy to help. The only negative was that on the final night we could hear the people in the unit above while we were trying to sleep. The... More

Many thanks for the comments and echoing what so many other guests say regarding how clean our rooms are. Unfortunately due to the nature of travellers some do arrive late at night off ferries and flights and this may cause some minor noise while they settle in. Appreciate your understanding. More

I was looking for a property that was centrally located, offered clean rooms, and wasn't going to brake the bank. The Apollo Lodge fit the bill. Customer service was great; every interaction I had with a staff member was a positive one. Room was what I've come to expect from NZ motels: good size with a kitchenette, clean, comfortable bed....

Many thanks for taking time to share. Construction is almost complete. New driveway going down. This has now given us extra parking and with our additional car park across the road there is little pressure. Thanks for the heads up on our cleanliness as it is good to know our hardworking cleaners are appreciated. See you another time. More

This motel is central enough to be within walking distance of all amenities, as well as a number of tourist attractions. We were comfortable and everything was as advertised online. No views from the ground floor rooms.

This hotel had a easy, friendly check in, however the rooms were only average and the renovations didn't help, although our unit which faced to the back wasn't effected that much. The beds were comfortable enough and all other equipment were good.

Easy, informative, and welcoming at the desk, very clean and well equipped unit including the kitchen, comfortable beds, quiet, showers had great pressure and hot water, and great location! Heating was also great. Parking was questionable, and will be even worse once the new rooms are complete!

Thank you for the lovely review. Parking is offered as free if available. As we mention in the compendium we also have additional car parks in our Apartment complex across the road.

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.
