Up to scratch but our stay was marred by being woken at night by a fellow guest who was conversing loudly outside our room on a mobile phone.... presumably in Hindi .... appreciated the parking and free Wifi

Thank you for taking the time to review and we are sorry somebody woke you with their indifference and lack of courtesy. Thanks for the comments on Wi-Fi as we have gone to great expense and time over the past year to offer a robust and fast service to all guests. More

We stayed two nights at the Apollo on our road trip around New Zealand. The motel is close to the centre of Wellington and very easy walking to the key areas. We were allocated a room in the annex which is an older building next to the main one and has heaps of character (not in a bad way). Our... More

Thanks for taking time to review as it always helps future guests make an informed decision on where to stay. Yes the Edwardian House rooms are delightful and many delight in the charm of this house. Hope you can return and enjoy them once more. More

We were very pleased with our accommodation at Apollo. The room had limited cooking facilities and was clean, tidy and spacious enough - ideal for our two nights stay.

Very clean and newly refurbished motel room. Everything you needed with full kitchen facilities in our room. Beds were comfortable and towels were replaced daily. Motel rooms are near the rear of the property so very little noise. No views from our room but this wasn't any problem for us. Very handy location to Courtenay Place shops & bus stops.

This motel is located close to the main streets of Wellington. The motel is quite funky looking inside out. We booked a split level studio. The room reminds me of a self-contained city studio apartment and quite clean and modern. The only downside was there were renovation works going on at the property, so parking, loading/unloading was a bit inconvenient... More

Clean, quiet, let us check in earlier than obliged. Handy to Centre of city. . Need to secure parking there as limited space for the downstairs units. Were directed and advised of this problem. Modern and only $ 147 for two. Certainly would go back.

We were deeply disappointed in our room (no. 6) at the Apollo Lodge. I made a reservation at this motel and apartment complex based on the good Tripadvisor reviews and the excellent location, close to restaurants, museums, and other attractions. When I initially phoned to make a reservation, several months before our trip, the owners were on vacation and the... More

We are so disappointed the guest felt unfairly treated and to receive such comments. Apollo Lodge has always been committed to continuously upgrade as evident by the recent construction of 8 brand new units. (and also noted by the reviewer) While this construction was underway there may have been some areas (like the laundry) that were used for additional storage... More

Only one night at this Motel but the facilities were of a very high standard. There was work being done on the driveway of the Motel but it didn't interrupt our stay. Within walking distance to Courtney Place and only a slight hill. Perfect.

Sorry it did not suit. We are just completing a major rebuild of 8 new units. This is culminating in a renewed driveway and complete freshen up. Unfortunate the guest did not notice this when we mentioned it on their confirmation. Appreciate the comments on cleanliness and location also. More
