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

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.
