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

I stayed in Riddiford Hotel on July and I was happy with their features. Bathroom was clean, the bed is nice firm, the room was nice warm, also the rate was cheaper. I disagreed with other reviews. I will recommend to my friend.

This would be the worst hotel we have stayed in. The toilet leaked so they moved rooms. The next room the window had been leaking for a long time and there was a towel by the window to mop up the water. Curtains were mouldy, carpet was filthy and we could not wait to leave. The hotel needs the health... More

Very bad experience. Central heating not on. Rooms clean but smelled. Not worth the $160 per night. Got $80 refund. Left after 1 hr. Sorry, not recommend.

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in November 2011 and was very satisfied with all features. The bedroom was good, the bathroom spotless and the staff friendly. The location is great for all the city shops, buses and mall. I was a little uncertain when I read a previous review but would recommend this hotel. It was significantly... More

This was a very basic Hotel which is reflected in the price. The rooms were clean but are very noisy - everytime someone in the next room used the toilet or shower you were woken up. The Front Office people were not very friendly and they have a big Alsatian Dog who was allowed in the Restaurant and dining area... More
