Reviewed 13 October 2013

I booked through wotif.com for a cheap hotel to stay at for work, what a lovely surprise! Clean, modern, plenty of car parks, toasty warm rooms and close to the main road for supermarkets, food etc. Will stay again for sure.

We were looking for another option of where to stay in Rotorua, as had been disappointed in our usual accommodation. Was searching for options when 'grab a deal' offered the Apollo Hotel. Immediately booked and contacted others who were travelling to same competition and so the phone calls went on. Those of us that stayed in the Apollo had restful nights sleep in very comfortable beds. The rooms had balconies and tea and coffee facilities + microwave. We had a couple of hiccoughs ( tv reception poor and lights not working) which were fixed immediately reception was notified. We will definitely be returning and have suggested that others who will be attending the competition next year consider booking here also.

We were tossing up between staying in rotorua or taupo & then ended up here through a discounted membership to entertainment book. We booked online one hour before check in & had no problems.
Was at the end of town so wouldn't stay here without a car but we didn't mind.
Rooms were modern, good heating, lovely bathrooms.
Could hear some neighbours coughing during night but didn't disturb sleep as bed was comfy as!!
Tv reception a little dodgy but we didn't really use it.
The lady at front desk was real nice and provided us with great advice and lovely service.
Was only short drive to redwoods forest, 3mins into cbd & right next door to the geysers.
Would def stay here again!

We initially stopped over the road at the Holiday Inn but they weren't very helpful. We went right over the road to the Apollo and were very pleasantly surprised. It's in a quite spot away from the traffic. The staff are very friendly and the room was very good. Comfy king sized bed with crisp sheets along with enough space for anyone. The staff members we dealt with had a good knowledge of the local area. We loved it.

Room Tip: The upper floors might be a bit quieter given the bottom floor units face the pool.

Stayed two nights would definitely return. I loved the location as it is quietly tucked away off the main Fenton Street beat but is still incredibly close driving to all the things we wanted to see and do in Rotorua. Thank you so much, we had an amazing stay at Apollo Hotel. Loved the interconnecting room options. It should be mentioned that the two different staff we dealt with here were both very friendly, professional, helpful and approachable. Our lovely receptionist even printed our Ice Skate Rink tickets.

I stayed there for 2 nights and found out everything perfect as a culmination of comfort, quality, ambience, and off course service. The manager himself is directly involved in addressing even the smallest need of any customer and is a very helpful lad.

Al in all, a peaceful place in Rotorua for that much needed break !
