Apollo Lodge is located at the edge of the city centre. Walking to Cuba Street is about 10 mins. The museum is about 5 mins walk. Cafes, restaurants and a supermarket (New World) are available nearby. Generally quiet place as its located at the residential area.
The reception, whom I presume is the boss is a nice, friendly chap. The welcome drink is a packet of milk (although we have 2 pax) but that's not an issue =)
Free parking and WiFi are available within the lodge. Luggage can be loaded/unloaded at the door step if you get the ground level rooms. The room is spacious. Comes with attached bathroom and a small counter to prepare some ready made meals using the microwave. No cooking as there is no stove.
Overall the room is good for a night stay, nothing more. Beds and pillows are on the very soft side thou. The furnishings are quite dated. For the price and convenience it's a good option if you are driving to Wellington. More
