John really makes this place a home for the time you're there. The rooms are clean, nice, and a bit dated. That being said, everything else is top notch. Breakfast was lovely, the location couldn't be better, and the beds were comfortable. If there are any negatives, it's that you have to park on the street and there are not... More

My husband and I stayed with John at the Richmond Guest House for over two weeks while we looked around Wellington. We were so glad we found it - a great location, with very comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the snapshots of history on the walls & John's stories about times gone by in the Mount Victoria area. Our thanks go... More

I did not mind the rooms, they were clean and spacious, a little outdated but ok. I did mind the manager who was rather rude, unwelcoming and kept making sarcastic comments about everything. It felt like it was a school dormitory - the manager kept being sarcastic about keeping the doors closed, walking quietly on the outside and inside areas!... More

This guest house is given a very personal touch by its owner who will greet you when you arrive and is present to chat to his guests during breakfast. The first floor room that we had was clean, well furnished and well heated. This bed and breakfast represents excellent value for money and is well situated at around 10 mins... More

If you make it to Wellington, New Zealand find your way to the Richmond Guest House. It is a 15 minute ride on the Valley Flyer bus ($9 NZ) which will drop you off two blocks from your destination - a walk along Brougham Street where you'll see the green sign identifying your place to stay. Ring the bell and... More

Much like the other reviews this hotel is exactly what you pay for. Cheaper than other hotels in the same area we decided to stay here as we were on a budget. We found john to be odd, quirky and inappropriate for a hotelier. The rooms were old and creepy with only a small electric heater with no comforts you... More

We didn't like the fact that if you don't wake early your breakfast "allocation" is gone! Tourists are not soldiers! the host is in need to understand some basic Customer services to say the least. The Beds were saggy and not comfortable. In need of some improvements in the lounge area .we end up cutting short our stay there and... More

While I agree with some of the comments made about Richmond Guest House-hang in there- John is a very kind man! We stayed there for 6 nights recently. We were a little taken aback the first day as John was a bit curt with us as he told us a few do's and don'ts. He then offered to make us... More

I am little surprised at couple reviewers... For us this was a great place to stay in Wellington whether decent accomodation is hard to find. Solo or with friends. We had such a good time at this place that we altered our itinearary so we can stay in Wellington few more days. We mostly hung out at the space either... More
