“EXCELLENT VALUE FOR CENTRAL SITUATION”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2011

We stayed for 2 nights at this motel over a recent weekend. It is excellent value for such a centrally located motel. Our room was spacious, very comfortable bed, good TV, kitchenette with fridge, microwave and hotplates. The bathroom was a very good size. All our facilities were spotlessly clean. Wifi in room (1st 50 mg free). There was plenty of parking over this weekend. Tea/coffee/bathroom consumables replenished on our second day. As we have family living nearby we will definitely use this motel again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2011

We arrived late on a Friday evening with nowhere to stay and after driving around the cith where relieved that the Apollo had a vacancy. We had an apartment across the road from reception. The exterior and the stairwell etc is not that appealing but don't be put off by this. Once inside the apartment was spacious with. 2 bedrooms, great value for what we paid on the edge of a city centre. It also appeared to have been newly decorated. Every room was spotlessly clean and the kitchen has a full cooker and was well equipped to prepare meals. All the white goods looked new. The only thing that let it down slightly where t he old uncomfortable sofa and old TV. But these are minor points. The location is quiet and about a 10 minute walk from the Te Pau museum and other attractions. The guy on reception was also very helpful, he had actually just closed for the night when we arrived but opened up again to check us in. I would definately recommend this motel.

Private, well appointed, quiet but centrally located. There is excellent offstreet parking, well lit for night security. Very modern recently renovated three bedroom apartment in a 4 storey building.

Had a great stay, wonderful location to all that Wellington had to offer. Separate room upstairs for kids. Clean and tidy. Duty Managers were very nice and helpful.

The motel is in a great location right in the city centre and it was great to just be able to park the car outside of the unit.
Units are a little cramped, but clean and reasonably well appointed. Bathroom was very large and modern.
A good choice for anybody staying in Wellington needing a car.
