We were deeply disappointed in our room (no. 6) at the Apollo Lodge. I made a reservation at this motel and apartment complex based on the good Tripadvisor reviews and the excellent location, close to restaurants, museums, and other attractions. When I initially phoned to make a reservation, several months before our trip, the owners were on vacation and the...

We are so disappointed the guest felt unfairly treated and to receive such comments. Apollo Lodge has always been committed to continuously upgrade as evident by the recent construction of 8 brand new units. (and also noted by the reviewer) While this construction was underway there may have been some areas (like the laundry) that were used for additional storage...

Only one night at this Motel but the facilities were of a very high standard. There was work being done on the driveway of the Motel but it didn't interrupt our stay. Within walking distance to Courtney Place and only a slight hill. Perfect.

Thank you for taking time to review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.

This place is very well located and clean and well priced. However for us it was not the right fit. The drive in/ parking lot was torn up with a port a potty off to the side which you must walk through to get to your room. The walls are thin and the over feel is a basic motel on...

Sorry it did not suit. We are just completing a major rebuild of 8 new units. This is culminating in a renewed driveway and complete freshen up. Unfortunate the guest did not notice this when we mentioned it on their confirmation. Appreciate the comments on cleanliness and location also.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Apollo Lodge Motel while we were in Wellington helping celebrate a friend’s 60th birthday. Being our first time in Wellington, we found the motel to be in a great location, central to everything. It is within easy walking distance of the central business district and a multitude of restaurants and cafes. And...

Stayed here as a group of 5 in a 2 bedroomed unit. Had 2 bathrooms in it & perfect for what we needed- the only problem was there was a big skylight in the lounge so you woke up with the sun if sleeping in there. Walking distance to the popular Courtney Place. I would be back :)

Thanks for taking time to review. The skylight is great as if offers good light and a feeling of space. Wellington is tooo exciting to be sleeping while the sun shines!!!

We stayed for 3 nights and found it to be a great place to rest your head. The room was very clean, large and warm. The staff were friendly and more than happy to help. The only negative was that on the final night we could hear the people in the unit above while we were trying to sleep. The...

ApolloManager, Manager at Apollo Lodge Motel, responded to this review

Many thanks for the comments and echoing what so many other guests say regarding how clean our rooms are. Unfortunately due to the nature of travellers some do arrive late at night off ferries and flights and this may cause some minor noise while they settle in. Appreciate your understanding.

I was looking for a property that was centrally located, offered clean rooms, and wasn't going to brake the bank. The Apollo Lodge fit the bill. Customer service was great; every interaction I had with a staff member was a positive one. Room was what I've come to expect from NZ motels: good size with a kitchenette, clean, comfortable bed....

ApolloManager, Manager at Apollo Lodge Motel, responded to this review

Many thanks for taking time to share. Construction is almost complete. New driveway going down. This has now given us extra parking and with our additional car park across the road there is little pressure. Thanks for the heads up on our cleanliness as it is good to know our hardworking cleaners are appreciated. See you another time.

This motel is central enough to be within walking distance of all amenities, as well as a number of tourist attractions. We were comfortable and everything was as advertised online. No views from the ground floor rooms.

This hotel had a easy, friendly check in, however the rooms were only average and the renovations didn't help, although our unit which faced to the back wasn't effected that much. The beds were comfortable enough and all other equipment were good.
