Well priced accommodation. Easy walking into the centre. Comfortable room and continental breakfast was just what we wanted. Host was very accommodating and welcoming. Free excellent internet access, newspapers each day. Quiet location on a bus route if you don't want to climb up the hill back from town. We would stay again.

I stayed at the Richmond Guest House recently and would have changed accommodation had it not been for other members of my party checking in before me. The room was shabby and cold with uncomfortable beds but I wasn't too disappointed with this as the price was cheap. On checking in, I just wanted to dump my bags and head... More

This is the second time my daughter and I have stayed at Richmond Guest House. Both times it has been perfect for our requirements. We enjoy spending leisure time in the capital and this well priced accommodation is within walking distance to the centre of town and the waterfront. It's close to a bus route so we were able to...

Good position for visiting Wellington. The room was comfortable and breakfast was adequate. Unfortunately we were not made to feel very welcome by the owner which apparently was because of where we came from. We were however shown our room by a very sweet French student who was very helpful. Having stayed in various B&B's, guest houses and motels throughout... More

As a single traveller who can no longer do the hostel thing, the Richmond Guesthouse was perfect. A comfortable bed with nice linens, wifi, & an excellent ensuite bathroom too! Courtenay Place and a host of other attractions are within easy walking distance. I did not partake in the continental breakfast as I tended to venture out. I found John... More

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
