Excellent location, but quiet! Very newly refurbished 1 bedroom unit, spotlessly clean and tidy, very well equiped. Highly recommended if you need to ba at this end of the CBD.
Very handy for the Welsh Dragon Bar, and only a short stumble to bed.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage and while it was fine for 1 night I probably wouldn't recommend it for much longer. The floor felt like it had been in a large earthquake as it was uneven and in some places you felt like you were walking downhill to get from one room to another!

We were in Wellington for a night. The room was adequate and we were in a renovated unit which was neat, clean but seemed a little cramped. The location was fantastic right in the heart of town and we could walk to our pick up our car to start our travel up North.

The service was adequate and value seemed reasonable.

Stayed with my partner and parents in a family unit to attend concert in wellington and couldnt have asked for better. Prebooked and right from initial phone call the service was exemplary.
Having had a good experience round 10 yrs ago I trusted the establishment but was blown away with the improvements. Brand new furnishings..spotlessly clean and ample of everything..including the blowdryer and soaps/shampoos etc! At $200 this is amazing value for four adults and the unit is large, spacious and deliciously comfortable and a pleasure to spend time in. Bus services etc are a lovely short stroll down street but units are incredibly quiet. Staff right from reception down to the wonderful cleaners were friendly and non intrusive and a credit to management. Love the little touches this place incorporates to make your stay a memorable one..Apollo Lodge..take a pat on the back..what you do, you do fantastically..thank you :)

this motel has recently been fully refurbished, average parking, great location, easy walking to shopping, great restaurants and cafes.

Room Tip: stick to the single level units, quieter and easy access.

I was here with some friends for the Rugby World Cup. This motel is off the beaten path, doesn't really stand out, but is very close to where all the action is. It is spotlessly clean, recently refurbished units mix old and new. very roomy with confortable beds and amenities. Good flat screen LCD TV, kitchenette with small dorm-size fridge and mini microwave. Very functional. The staff is very helpful and truly seem to enjoy working there. You get ample (50MB) free wifi. There is a small convenience store (they call them "dairy" for some odd reason) right across the street. The shower had slightly low pressure for my liking, but that is just a personal preference. All things considered... it's great value for money!

Room Tip: stay farther away from the street if you want a little more quiet.
