We stayed as a family to have a break in Wellington. We were impressed. The 6 Sky channels is not adequate anymore but the beds were great and the facilities were great. It was quiet, convenient and clean. Nice.

Thanks for the comments. We do have some new units with SKY select if that is a concern for some travellers. Pleased the break was enjoyable.

Had a lovely 4 night stay in one of the 1 b/r motel apartments - we loved the modern layout, the unit was clean and warm (didn't need heating). The location is brilliant ... minutes walk from Oriential Parade, Courtenay Place, theatres, shopping. In the small street leading up to the motel is an array of fabulous restaurants ranging from a Chippery to fine dining and everything in between. Would definately stay here again when in Wellington.

Thanks for taking time to share your thoughts and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is wonderful when visiting another town or city to be able to access the bars, restaurants and attractions so easily and this is one of the reasons many travellers return to Apollo. Hope to see you again also.

We loved the Edwardian house that we stayed in. Travelling with the whole family was not easy especially with younger kids and this 2-bedroom unit on the ground floor was perfect for us all. Our older kids were amazed by the antique-like fixtures. Generous in size, quiet and most of all clean. Bathroom was newly refurbished. Housekeeping was helpful with our requests. We stayed there for a whole week in the coldest month but the house was warm and dry. We didn't need the electric blanket. There are some sharp corners from furniture but easily fixed by laying a bath towel over the edges. The noise level was extremely low considering the proximity to restaurant and bars. The room rate was very reasonable. The only drawback was we were given 1 set of keys only. This was inconvenient when we had different activities and went back to the motel in different times. We'll definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Edwardian house is large enough to accommodate a family of 5.

Thank you for the review and we are so pleased you enjoyed the Edwardian Family Room. Yes it looks great with the new bathroom, curtains and fresh decor. We do have extra keys if asked for though. See you again.

The owners have done a great job refurbishing what must have once been quite daggy old rooms. Our spacious King room was fresh and clean, with a lovely bathroom and a kitchenette (which we didn't use) but seemed adequate for preparing a simple meal. The location is brilliant, a short stroll from all the bars, restaurants and entertainment of Courtney Place and the price is very reasonable.

We stayed in one of the A-frame rooms and all-in-all it exceeded my expectations. Our room faced the street but the traffic noise was not a problem at all and the occasional people walking/talking late at night was also no problem. The room was clean with good decor and a decent tv. The bathroom was better than most places I have stayed at in Wellington. The couple on reception were friendly and efficient. Parking is first-come-first-in so if you arrive late I am not sure if you will find a park so you may want to call and ask about this.

Room Tip: If you are a very light sleeper, get a room away from the street (although it really is not that noi...

Thank you very much for the review and pleased we exceeded your expectations. We are very proud of our hardworking cleaners and will pass your comments on. With regards to parking part of the Motel is located across the road and there are additional car parks there also. So there is sufficient free parking which is great for such an inner city location. Look forward to seeing you again.
