I booked Apollo for family coming for Christmas. Very happy with room size, portacot and all contact with reception. Really is the best location to downtown, waterfront, supermarket and to us on Mt Victoria.

Only at the hotel for a single night but Lindsay and his wife made us feel so welcome and comfortable . Insightful recommendations for local restaurants (southern cross hotel a sensation ) and very helpful with overall logistics. Perfect for short term family stay.
