Absolutely revolting with a pungent odour of filthiness. Stained carpet which looked as if it has never been cleaned or vacuumed, dirty bedding & bathroom and 9 years of dust collecting on windows, curtains and skirting. We checked out after 10 minutes of arriving. Couldn't pay me to stay there.

Great location central to Hutt City. Room well serviced, quiet and restful. Decor a little tired in places, reasonably clean and tidy. Compact room. The main issue we had was with the hot water system which was temperamental starting off with hot showers that fairly quickly went to warm - like there was insufficient hot water available. Also quite a... More

We needed a place after a long day in the wet and windy capital. Riddiford Hotel was a warm place with all the things we needed for our unplanned overnight stay with our baby. The wide corridors were great for getting the baby gear into the room, and the sound proofing was enough to make us feel like we weren't... More

I rung through at the last minute as was stuck for accommodation, was great to find they had a room free for 4 nights and the rate was quite good with 100$ bond back after stay. Parking onsite. Short, shallow bath and shower hot/cold off and on, but same as Michael K - good location, close to mall and Lower... More

Having been let down by our accommodation that we had booked being closed down one, week out from an All Black test we were overjoyed to find that the Riddiford had room for us. The accommodation was great but our only complaint was cold showers. As this has been mentioned in previous reviews some time ago it would seem it's... More

The location was very good, less than a 2 minute walk from the Queensgate Westfield and other shops, with a bus stop right across the road. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, the room was warm and I was offered a small heater if I needed it, both the room and bathroom were tidy and clean, and were serviced every... More

The welcome was ok but porter was sitting in the couch reading a paper. Got my room and found heating didn't work, bath too small, no milk in the fridge, curtains didn't fit the windows properly and when I called for menu they stated the restaurant was closed although advertised as open from 7am to 11pm!! Only 3 channels and... More

When the airport closed due to weather I needed accommodation in the Wellington region, nothing central so ended up in Lower Hutt. The welcome was warm and friendly, the room was clean and quiet. The only complaint was that the shower was broken but as I was checking out at 0500 (and didn't discover the issue until the morning) this... More

Excellent location in central Lower Hutt. Within 2 minutes of the big Queensgate Mall. We just stayed one night and the rooms were perfectly adequate for one night. We had a back room that was pretty quiet and the beds were good. The shower ran out of hot water very quickly so we couldnt have two hot showers in a... More

Was very happy with the place. It was my first time down to Wellington and the location is great as it is near Queensgate shopping centre. As I mentioned in the restaurant section of this hotel I personally like the chinese food they have and it is by far the best I have had in New Zealand restaurants. Overall I... More
