We enjoyed our stay at Richmond guest house. The room was clean and comfortable, the complimentary continental breakfast provides a large range of breakfast cereals, fruit juice, toast, tea or coffee to set you up for the day. It is well located with an easy walk to central Wellington or a bus nearby. Parking is available outside the door (free)... More

I stayed at the Richmond Guest House on Wednesday evening, 29 April and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I received a friendly warm welcome on arrival, and was soon conversing with John about my work, family and a range of domestic and international issues. John is a very witty guy with a great sense of humour. My room was very clean... More

Decor wise this establishment will take you back to the late 70's, early 80's - and if you are not too picky you might find it amusing (as we did). Our room was at the budget end of the spectrum, and therefore we werent expecting everything to be up to date - overall, the room was clean even if the... More

We stayed at Richmond Guest House in January, and this is one place I wanted to be sure to review. While this is not a fancy place, it was clean and clearly a work in progress. By that I mean that John, the proprietor, takes great pride in this home and is continually updating it. He was kind enough to... More

Cheap price and excellent location within easy walking distance of CBD. Clean and quiet room with free and fast wi-fi, let down by uncomfortable mattress and pillows. Plentiful breakfast in bright dining room with nice view.

John (the owner) could come across as a little heavy at first,but take the time to talk to him and listen to some of the things he has to say,and he is really... More

We stayed here based on other travellers reviews from trip advisor. Although John the owner welcomed us at first, he became sulky and at times rude for no apparent reason. He offered us little or no information on Wellinton, appearing disinterested. The room we were given was dusty and the bedding was not fresh, the breakfast was very basic, some... More

As you said, we are proud of our good reviews from other guests. Always, we welcome our guests and when they have not been in Wellington before, we give them a map and show the places they can visit. Our rooms are cleaned and prepared before guests come in; we are not sure of what you mean with "not fresh... More
