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.

Read all the reviews before booking. The rooms are basic and need updating. Beds very uncomfortable. There were hairs in the shower, and items on the floor from the last guest (like hair ties) . John is very very rude at times. His office is full of garden tools. I couldn't eat the breakfast. The cereals must have come from... More

Awesome overall experience with great people coming and going. My room had everything you would need in terms of natural light and facilities. 10 minute walk max from anything you need. I would definitely use the Richmond Guest House again as the owner John was very accommodating. Cheers, Jasper

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I did not mind the rooms, they were clean and spacious, a little outdated but ok.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
