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...

We booked a newly renovated ground floor studio. Our host was very friendly and welcoming on arrival and had us happily settled in to our unit in no time. The unit was clean comfortable and double glazed to reduce the central Wellington back ground noise. The Apollo is only a couple of hundred metres from Courtney Place so it is...

Thank you for the kind words and we are also very pleased with our new units as they have added another level to the range of choices Apollo Lodge offers. Once again the reviewer has highlighted our excellent location which enables guests ease of access to the range of restaurants and attractions on offer.

We booked a two bedroom apartment. Glad that it has ensuite bathroom. Very convenient especially we have 4 people. Good location. Walking distance to city and mount victoria. We simply parked the car in the complex and walked everywhere. Highly recommended for a budget motel.

We did not stay at the Apollo Lodge Motel because it was fully booked, but I guess it would have been a nice experience. The Motel is centrally located, rooms looked nice from outside (they were being cleaned), and the lady at the reception was nice and friendly. The Motel offers a free car parking, a blessing in Wellington!!

I came to Wellington at the end of my North Island trip essentially just to stay the night before the ferry trip to Picton the next day. I therefore was looking for somewhere to book myself into which would give me decent facilities and easy access to the ferry terminal. Apollo Lodge seemed to fit the bill and my interactions...
