We arrived at Christchurch airport from Australia and picked up a car. This motel, like many others is within 10 mins drive from the airport. The room was very clean with the usual kitchen facilities. The bathroom was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Free wifi but for only one computer per room and 500mb max per day. The capacity should be enough for emails etc but rather inconvenient if the family has more than one computer/tablet/smartphone etc! Laundry facilities also available. Overall a pleasant and friendly place to stay overnight.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with family

Used this motel for a one night stay in Christchurch. We checked in a little later than we had arranged - our host didn't bat an eyelid. He was welcoming and friendly on a dark, stormy night. Room was huge with everything we needed, and very clean. Great location and easy to find. I thought the value for money was pretty good considering what else was on offer for the same price.

There are many, many choices for lodging near the Apollo Motel, yet we were highly satisfied with our decision to trust the TripAdvisor reviewers and stay there. We stayed for a night at the beginning and end of our trip, relaxed knowing that we had such a nice place to sleep and get organized before leaving NZ.

The kitchen was complete, though compact, and the bathroom warm with great towels. Both were extremely clean.

We could walk to restaurants, a Countdown supermarket, and a pharmacy. Riccarton Road is a main street connecting the outskirts (airport) and the CBD, but street noise was nil and night. The WiFi they offered was perhaps the best we had in NZ.

Diana was prompt and efficient with our booking, and some changes in our dates were handled with no hassle.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding, we stayed in a one bedroom apartment unit and this was a nice size, we didn't use the cooking facilities as we were out most of the time. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Service was great, I only booked for 2 nights instead of 3, they had no more vacancy but the owner suggested some nearby hotels, checked their availability and booked us a room for a 3rd night which was awesome and took the stress off for me!
In close walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, Westfield shopping mall and cafés and restaurants.
We had a rental car so it was a nice short drive into the city.
Location is excellent and I wouldn't hesitate staying here again :)
