This motel and especially the service is outstanding! Even though it is not located in the city center, you have about 5 bus lines from the bus station in front of the motel to the city bus exchange. There is also one direct bus (no. 3) to the airport (every 30 minutes).

The units are large, new, bright and very clean with kitchenette (including stove) and free internet (WiFi and Ethernet) is provided. The owners are both very helpful, even when you have special requests. The biggest surprise were the reasonable rates!

Apollo Motel is located on a major road into town, about 10 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the town centre (by car). Town centre is not within walking distance, so a car is required.

Rooms are spacious, new, clean and well equipped (kitchenette).

There is some traffic noise from the nearby road, but it's more than acceptable.

Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Prices are pretty competitive!

i would definitely stay here again!

The Apollo is convenient to the Christchurch airport (10 minutes by car). We chose it so we could get out to an early morning flight. The management is friendly, and the small motel has rooms that are very clean with good beds. We had a somewhat small room, but had been warned when we reserved that it would be a bit cramped for 3 of us - it was the last room they had. Our guide book had suggested it is worth the money to get the larger rooms - but we made it work!

Arrived with eight cases and three kids at seven in the morning and could not wish for a warmer welcome.

Kevin & Janet (the owners) went out of their way to help us, advise us about schools and car dealers, direct us to the best chippie and generally made us very welcome during our two week stay.

The room was clean with clean towels daily and sheets changed every three days.

All in all a great motel which I would whole heartedly recommend.
