Our sports team really enjoyed our stay. The motel was very quiet, but very close to various eating places and the CBD. The units were beautifully clean. Even the weather was great! We will definitely stay here again if we are back to Wellington.

We were very happy with our stay at the Apollo Lodge Motel. We had an upstairs unit with a small balcony looking out to the street, which was pleasant given the fine weather we enjoyed during our visit. The A-frame design made it seem even more spacious, given the height of the ceiling. While not high end, the unit was...

Thank you very much for giving such a pleasant and comprehensive review of Apollo Lodge. Our location and cleanliness is a major contributor to our popularity and along with the large range of options on offer allow us to give travellers and business guests a wide choice not always available elsewhere. Thank you for taking time to share.

This motel is very close to some good restraunts such as Oretga's. It is also an easy walk to the downtown area. Mount Victoria is very close, albeit up a very steep hill. Rooms were well equipped and clean. We hadn't specifically booked the Edwadian part, most of the motel is like most NZ motels, which is fine.

Good location, walking distance to all amenities, clean, comfortable room, easy parking, our only issue with this booking which was made six months ahead of our stay, was that we specifically asked for a quiet room away from the road and were given one right on the road. The owner said that it is not always possible to arrange rooms...

Without knowing guest name and date of stay it is difficult to comment suffice to say we do try to honour all requests. When booking on line we also honour the room the guest has booked . It does pay to contact the hotel directly for specific requirements. There are also times when we cannot move things as we can...

This place is in a fantastic location, walking distance from the city attractions and Oriental bay. Check in was easy and we were given a map and helped out with places to explore. The room was clean and comfortable, although a little dated. Parking was right outside and for those crossing to the south Island the ferry terminal was only...

Thanks for the review and we are happy to help. Wellington is a fabulous Capital City and so easy to explore from Apollo Lodge. Not sure what room the guest stayed in but we are committed to continual upgrades and refurbishments as noted by the recent opening of an entire new block.

Stayed in the Edwardian house last weekend. Whilst spacious and comfortable its decor and fixtures are very "tired" and a refurb is required. Very nice people at reception. Great location approximte to Cuba Street but still quiet.

We booked a family room,two singles for children (2&4) on the mezzanine floor,our on ground floor. Check-in was very friendly on our arrival. The unit was spotlessly clean and very comfortable,our room had no ground/outside noise. The Apollo is approximately 300 metres from Courtney Place so it's very close for both food,entertainment, and for the drop off / pick up...

Had a weekend away in Wellington from Auckland - and my friend booked this place. The truth? I thought it didn't look that impressive and assumed it might be a bit average. But the welcome was nice, the rooms spotlessly clean, the location super quiet and we couldn't have been happier. Great value for money and free wi-fi too. Look,...

The Apollo Lodge Motel is perfectly located -- a block or so from the best restaurants and bars. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, there is free wifi and free parking. Our room had a nice shower, a comfortable king bed, a well-equipped kitchen. Everything we needed except ambience. As another reviewer had mentioned, we were misled by a...

Thanks for the comprehensive review and we are happy to announce we have just completed a full refurbishment of another King suite with new bathroom, kitchen and carpet. Appreciate your understanding. As Apollo is very busy at most times there are always going to be car movements so we feel this is somewhat unfair as it is the nature of...
