    Good stay at Apollo.

    Great stay at Apollo motel had booked a deluxe queen suite , queen bed and 1 twin as I traveled with my daughter liked the sound of the bigger suite , got put into a 1 bedroom unit but I asked to swap back, they did this with no fuss. Good price and friendly helpful staff. Nice clean light suite , good shower pressure.

    Unfortunately the noise of riccarton road ruined our stay here. We got no sleep because we are light sleepers so probably no good for people needing sleep

    Location was good, had everything we needed, however a few shabby things in the room if had been removed or fixed would have made it look so much better.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The property has deteriorated over time. I have stayed at this motel at least 5 times over the past few years and have always been happy with the rooms. This time the rooms were unclean and the fixtures and fittings are neglected. We asked to change rooms because the toilet seat was in a terrible condition.
