Had high hopes for this B&B. Unfortunately it didn't live up to it. Since it had been burnt in the Fire the propiter has apparently been renovating it but I saw no evidence apart from the front of the house only that's painted pastel green. My room did have everything you need, but it all needed replacing including the ensuite.... More

Our stay over here was a short one for The New Years celebrations, but we found this little guest house to be very comfy and convenient, situated close to the centre of Wellington. The rooms felt homely, and fittingly in line with typical guest house decor, and wifi free and of good quality. The bathroom was clean, and the bed... More

A quaint little cottage and such warm hospitality! We were invited to join John and his guests at their Xmas dinner on Xmas day as most shops in town were closed for the holidays. Blessings to John for his warm hospitality and service. We enjoyed our stay and the location is fantastic as within the CBD and walking distance to... More

I've had a relaxing week in this b & b. John, the manager, was friendly and filled with little nuggets of information and stories in Wellington to keep you entertained. Breakfast is provided every morning from 7-9 a.m. There is a good selection of cereals, spreads for toast and you get free coffee and tea throughout the day. Wifi is... More

This guesthouse has a long list of reviews, hence I will not repeat details. Suffice it to say that our experience matched most closely to the more negative ones, and was quite anomalous with the "warm, welcoming and helpful" comments from others. We were greeted with "attitude" and felt quite unwelcome. The room, however, was very clean and comfortable. We... More

Richmond Guesthouse offers cozy rooms for fair prices. The owner, John, is friendly and takes good care of his guests. Continental breakfast is served complimentary every morning and the Guesthouse offers some free parking spots and well working Wifi.

I honestly don't understand the negative reviews about this place. It was quiet, not far from city center, bed was really comfortable and breakfast had the best jam I have ever tasted. The owner was not rude at all as I read in some reviews, was friendly and happy to have conversation with guests in the morning. The first day... More

I stayed for two nights here and was a great place and atmosphere. It felt like home! A 10 minute walk into town is good and a drive up to mount vic for the look around is worth it. John, the Manager is welcoming guy and makes the place feel good. Great range of cereals for breakfast too. A reasonable... More

My overall experience was very positive. John was very warm and welcoming. A fountain of local knowledge with many entertaining yarns to share. Our room was clean,comfortable and the overall atmosphere was one of homliness and relaxation. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a real kiwi host and atmosphere. Thanks heaps John.
