Reviewed March 26, 2011

Private, well appointed, quiet but centrally located. There is excellent offstreet parking, well lit for night security. Very modern recently renovated three bedroom apartment in a 4 storey building.

Had a great stay, wonderful location to all that Wellington had to offer. Separate room upstairs for kids. Clean and tidy. Duty Managers were very nice and helpful.

The motel is in a great location right in the city centre and it was great to just be able to park the car outside of the unit.
Units are a little cramped, but clean and reasonably well appointed. Bathroom was very large and modern.
A good choice for anybody staying in Wellington needing a car.

very expensive motel in Wellington. Small rooms and old, no space to sit outside. Two adults and two children under 14 $190. Owners, not friendly do not recommend

ThelittleBoss, Manager at Apollo Lodge Motel, responded to this review, February 13, 2011
I'm sorry this guest found the accommodation to be expensive, when the booking was made through an on-line reservation site they only booked for 2 people, when there where 4, (2 adults and 2 children). Had they put the correct amount of people staying they would have know the correct tariff. Would you go to the movies with 2 tickets and get 4 seats? Or book a flight for 2 and expect to get 4 seats.

Really enjoyed our stay here, lovely room, right in the heart of wellington. Friendly reception and proper milk too - always a bonus. We would have liked a bin in the bathroom and another mirror somewhere in the room but we would still highly recommend staying here!

We stayed at Apollo Lodge Motel for 2 nights, the room had been recently modernised, beautiful large bathroom and everything we needed. An easy walk to Te Papa and downtown and more restaurants near at hand than you could need if you stayed a month.

The motel was basic but ok for somewhere to sleep and had the advantage of being very close to the city which was a real bonus. Our room smelled slightly of fresh paint when we first walked in which we took as a good sign and it was obvious that it had recently been refurbished.
We arrived late in the evening (around 11pm), having pre-booked, to find the reception closed with no indication of how to find our rooms or of how to find someone who worked there. Fortunately we had the telephone number of the motel with us and were able to phone to let them know we'd arrived. This resulted in a window opening above reception and a rather gruff man throwing our key down to us. At the time it was kind of funny (in a 'OMG what kind of customer service was that? kind of way) but when we saw the same man the next morning and appologised for waking him he did not appear to have any recollection of this!
By far the biggest gripe, however, was the presence of whatever bug it was that bit me to within an inch of my life as I slept! Two days on I'm still covered in huge red spots that itch like hell. My guess is that the cause is either bed bugs or fleas, I just know that when I got home I undressed on the doorstep and put all my clothes in the washing machine on my way to the shower!
Was the convenience of being close to town worth the agony of the bites... I think not!
