We arrived in the middle of the night. Our hosts had arranged everything for us. Due to another guest’s issue we were upgraded to an apartment. It was perfect for us. We had our three teenagers with us and we all had our own space. The two bathrooms were also nice. The rooms were so clean and very comfortable beds. We were able to walk everywhere. Linz and Jo were helpful in every little detail with each part of our trip. Being able to park and leave our car safely in the lot was great. CubaDuba was going on and it was an easy walk from our apartment. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here twice, initially on a city visit on our return from the South Island. The newer rooms in the central section cost a little more but are well worth the extra, as they are more modern and spacious. The owners were very helpful in suggesting local restaurants and places to visit. Exceptionally convenient for the city centre with Courtney Place just 100 meters down the road and around the corner from a supermarket, the Te Papa museum and waterfront.

We stayed at this motel for two nights. Our room was at the back, which meant it was very quiet. The bedroom was very plainly decorated with only very basic furniture. It was nice to have a separate kitchen.
We were able to park easily and because everything in the city was nearby we didn't move the car until we left.
The room did get quite warm and it would have been useful if there had been some nice seating area outside.
Overall no frills but a perfectly adequate place to stay in Wellington.

This was a very basic hotel in which we stayed just one night to catch the ferry the next morning. There was no A/C in the unit and I could see that this could be an issue during hot summer months. Even in Feb it took some time to get our room comfortable with slider open which was the only form of ventilation and bathroom window. Since we were riding our a Cyclone that evening keeping the slider open was a problem with in coming rain and also no security. Overall we were not impressed with Wellington and the Apollo Lodge fit our needs. The host were very nice, but who isn't in NZ.

Thanks for the review. Agree it has been the hottest summer on record very warm for everyone at night. AC is not a prerequisite in Wellington due to its moderate temp range. Agree our location is great and disappointed you did not find Wellington one of the coolest capitals as it is promoted.

My friend and I spent 3 nights at the Apollo Lodge and we were very pleased with our stay.

Staff was pleasant, I believe it was a husband and wife team running the place. The location could not have been better, a 5 minute walk from the downtown area for food and drinks but on a quiet street.

Then again, my bed was right by the window so I was woken up a few times by loud people walking by the street. We were in an A-Frame room, which looks like they all border the street. So noise could be an issue in this room type vs. the others. Our room also looked different from the online pictures which were of the upstairs rooms. I addressed this with the staff and they said they could not control which pictures were shown. A bit disappointing, but the room was the same layout nonetheless.

The beds were not the most comfortable beds but they did just fine.

Thanks for the review and pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are planning to double glaze these windows hopefully this year when we quieten down a little to get the job done. We do note on the website that not all rooms have the pitched ceiling and sorry the guest was disappointed.
