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!!

Well this would be the first time we have had a review from someone who did not even stay. If they think it is great without staying then.............

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...

Thank you for the comprehensive review and we are pleased you appreciate the charm and character of the Edwardian House. Apart from the large Family units it also offers a couple of Queen studios and twin rooms.

Excellent motel great location and very reasonably priced. Only thing to improve it would be a fan or air conditioning as room was quite hot. Bed very comfortable good sized room. Well appointed bathroom, good shower but so so water pressure.

Free parking and a great location at a reasonable price - what more do you want for accommodation in Wellington! The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was nice and modern with a good shower.

We stayed in a three-bed room which was very spacious and very clean, as was the bathroom. Excellent location with close proximity to the museum and the CBD. Wifi was a bit slow but worked. Room had iron board, fridge, TV. Great value for money. We were very happy and would return.

Can't beat the location, near waterfront restaurants, the Te Papa museum, and downtown. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the city. Our room was clean and very comfortable. We parked our car and never drove it for 2 days. We would stay here again.

Thanks Bill. Yes the reason Apollo Lodge is always busy is the location, free parking and clean rooms. Hope to see you again.

Abslutely the best thing going for this hotel is the location. Perfect for the waterfront, nightlife, bars, restaurants, shopping and, for the fitter, Mount Victoria (a stunning view, once you have your breath back). Modern, clean, welcoming, well equipped, comfortable, spacious, etc. The only knock is that parking can be full, so get here as soon after check in opens...

Thanks for highlighting all that Apollo Lodge has to offer and the fabulous location. When full car parking can be appear to be tight however as we mention we do have additional car parks across from the motel in our apartment complex. Thanks again for taking time to share your experience.

The room was excellent with everything we needed, everything was spotlessly clean and in great condition. The English people on reception were very friendly and gave us advice on local places to visit and to eat at. The location was perfect as most places were in walking distance.

We stayed 2 nights at the Apollo Lodge Motel and we couldn't have been happier with our choice.
