The studio rooms at the Apollo Motel are very clean and spacious. The kitchen areas are stocked with most of the cooking pans/dishes/etc. you'll need, and the kitchen has a french press that's replenished with great coffee daily. The employees who service the rooms are fantastic--thank you so much! There's also a self-service laundry facility that's relatively new. It's an... More

For the price this was a good option to stay. My husband and I stayed for two nights. The one thing that was strange... you have to put your room key into a slot inside the room for the electricity to work. Which means that if you are out of the room there is no working electricity so you can't... More

This motel has very small rooms that have stains all over the furniture and bed covers. The bathroom being located right next to the kitchen is not at all practical. The wifi also is very poor and drops out every 2-3 minutes. This is very overpriced for what you get.

Comfortable motel for 3 people with separate bedroom. Very clean and good beds. We were upstairs and found it quiet even though Fri and Sat nights prior to Christmas. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, parking was a bit tight though but plenty adjacent parking in the street if required. Equipment fine for self catering. Good supply of tea... More

Stayed in this hotel last week. Because my travel agent had booked through Expedia, my room was under the stairs, yup, kind of like Harry Potter. I was not impressed. The blind was broken (I couldn't change directions, nor pull it up or down), the tiles in the bathroom (a disabled one) were broken and the paint peeling. The decor... More

Greeting upon arrival was cheerful and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean, well maintained. Free WiFi which is awesome and loads of TV channels. The milk even comes in a glass bottle! The bathroom towels were a good size, unlike some that are the size of a postage stamp! Very nice and will be staying here again, Thank You.

Stayed for two nights and found the place very centrally located, an easy walk to restaurants and quick drive to supermarkets (Countdown and Pak n Save). The rooms are compact but have everything you need, including a full kitchen. Everything worked which is often a bug bear I have with motels where the TV or DVD doesn't go. The bed... More

We stayed here over Easter for four nights. The motel was warm, clean and well appointed, everything we needed was there. The staff were friendly and helpful. A separate room for the kids was great. Supermarket and shops close by. The price was on the high side with no discount for multiple nights, but expected over a public holiday I... More

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.
