Close to University, bus stop outside made travel to Riccarton Mall, University and CBD very easy.
very friendly and polite, helpful staff Handy to Unversity and other facilities
very noisey we could hear people in units either side of us.
It's relatively new
Poor attention to detail by owner. Just do the basics.
location, cleanliness, reception was pleasant and helpful.
the size of the motel room didn't suit our family. It was tight and so the comfort of the stay was rather uncomfortable. Also having the queen bed right in the door way.
It was nice and warm
There were at least 4 lightbulbs not working in our unit
CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! Helpful staff, very comfortable. We will be back!
convenience to the riccarton area, the friendly staff and management
maybe a wee bit noisy, but being a major road has to be expected. Maybe double glazing at some stage?
wasn't anything I didn't like
Nice and quiet, lovely clean room.
Convenient location. Close to where we needed to be.
Close to everything, very clean and modern, great shower!!
Everything was great
Accessible unit bathroom flooded due to faulty shower head No place in unit for suitcases
Friendly staff clean great location
It was clean and the reception staff were courteous.
For a family unit it was far too small. No room to move in the room that was supposed to be a lounge but had a double bed in it. No shelf space in the bathroom, so nowhere to put even one toilet bag, let alone four! The tea and coffee supplied was not adequate, there were 4 teabags when we arrived, we stayed 2 nights and these were not replenished. The heater wad difficult to get to, squashed behind a table that was too small for 4 people. The car park wasn't adequate, we had to park on the street. The owners have taken a unit that would normally be a double unit with a separate bedroom and turned the lounge area into a sleeping area by putting a double bed in it. You could barely open the main door without it hitting the bed. Also very noisy and no air conditioning. Apart from some rock hard dining chairs there was only one other chair in the lounge so nowhere to sit other than the bed. We won't be back, nor would we recommend the Apollo to others. A very low standard of family accommodation we think, we expect much better in NZ!
Check in after 9:30 pm is a problem as there would be nobody in the office. This needs to be arranged before arriving if arriving late in the evening. Woke up in the middle of the night to find the room door open. Was sure the latch had been put on but the lock was obviously not closing solidly.
A little bit noisy
Nice clean motel pleasent staff a little bit of road noise but right on main road so expected
Only one devise allowed on wifi
Quiet room, modern, location was great - close to the Riccarton mall and other shops.
The hairdyer kept cutting out.
Locate next to main street, easy to locate with ample parking. Near main shopping area, Riccarton Mall is 3-minute drive, city centre is 5-minute drive from Motel.
Small family unit, with master-bed & other furniture in sitting area. Master-bed just a step from the main entrance. Limited TV channels and some were with reception problems. Wi-Fi not free as advertised, limited to 500MB per stay.
Bathroom / disabled. Shower water poorly contained floor wet throughout also I did not require a disabled unit but I do appreciate it may have been the last unit available
The service was excellent and the free ice cream on the hot day was a nice touch.
Traffic noise was there but not overwhelming.
We use this as our last night before leaving for the airport This hotel represents excellent value for money. Its kept beautifully clean and very well appointed. I would have no issues staying here again or recommending it.
We always stay here when in Christchurch. The position is wonderful. Short walk to huge mall, shops, pubs and restaurants.
