Decent Overnight Stay

The room was big and clean. It was well presented. The check in process was quick and easy. We stopped here for an overnight stay. We didnt get to try the pool or the restaurant. The toiletries/amenities provided was very nice (MOR products). Would have been better if their was a door to shower, it would stop water from getting out. Wifi was provided and it was sufficient. The only downside was that the bed linen was not that clean, there were some stains and the sheets had hair on it from previous occupants. It was very windy last nite and the wind tunnel created between the entrance door and the balcony door created a howling noise which woke us up a few times through the night.

Convenient for business

Great location close to CBD but without traffic issues. The restaurant is the best thing about the place. The food is fantastic and of a very high standard. Only negative is the WiFi connection which is very weak in the downstairs rooms and is almost unusable.

a good place a bit off

The Apollo is a very nice and quiet place to stay. The rooms are well maintained and you get free WIFI. The only problem is the location in Charlestown but if you got a car it does not matter too much.

good weekend

Requested an early check-in, and even with a really busy weekend, the hotel was able to accommodate this. It helped to make for a good weekend.

Ok, but not every room is good

Stayed in the Best Western a few times this year during a business trip. Rooms from " great stuff " to " nearly not acceptable ". Avoid any room close to the restaurant and reception as the music and other noise keep you awake till after 12. Room away are nice and not noisy at all even the once close to the road. Parking is free and the food is ok.

ok except for air con

Nicely renovated hotel but they forgot to fix the antiquated air conditioner which did not cool the room just made a lot of noise. Staff were not very responsive when I suggested it needed maintenance. Suggested I should have asked to move rooms...in the middle of the night? If staying here check your air conditioner early and move rooms if needed.
