This place is very handy to the waterfront and restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. John provides a parking coupon so there is limited parking available for guests. We stayed in room 4, which was spacious and very clean, but only a double bed which did sag a bit in the middle. The earlier party had stopped by the... More

Comfortable, spacious room with morning paper. Not for late risers, as breakfast room must be vacated by 9.15. That was not a problem for me. Budget breakfast of cereal, toast and instant coffee, self -service. More suitable for business travellers than holiday makers.

On our three-week road trip through NZ we stayed in Wellington for one night and had found this B&B by accident: All caravan sites in the city were booked out and -fortunately- we happened to park in front of the house while looking for a hostel or the like. The furnishing might not be everyone´s taste, but the house is... More

The bed/room were comfortable. This establishment is close to most of the Wellington highlights. Very little sleep the first night = loud party next door which noise control & the police were called to. Not a lot of sleep either of the other nights as the same neighbours sat outside talking and every word could be heard in my room.... More

John, the owner, is an amazing person, full of humour and he has a lot of information about what you need to know and everything else as well. Comfortable rooms with all the extras, nice homely feeling, good bathrooms, breakfast and wifi included and walkable distance to town. Nice quiet street and you will have a good sleep! Mariana Amar

I stay in a LOT of hotels for business and am increasingly put off sterile big name hotels which are slick yet soul-less. Finding John and the Richmond was fantastic. A short walk into town or the Mt Victoria tracks, great banter with John, and a feeling that somebody has basically enabled you to stay at an elderly relative's place... More

Perfectly located with just a 6min walk to Courtney Place and a 15Min stumble home at the early hours of the morning after a night out on the town. John and his team are smiley, welcoming and great! John has a bloody good sense of humour and welcomes everyone to enjoy it as if it were their own home. Thanks... More

Stayed a couple of days here - so close to basin reserve and CBD - 5 mins walk. Big rooms, basic accommodation at a basic price - but clean and pleasant enough. Free onsite parking & WIFI was a great plus too. Owner John was very helpful too.

We enjoyed the lively banter with our host John. The room was as advertised, clean and comfortable. Very handy location to the CBD. If the people making negative comments took the time and had the interpersonal skills to communicate with someone of John's quirky nature, they too would have had an enjoyable experience. We would definitely stay there again. Go... More
