A great base and great location to see Wellington
Location is excellent, value for money is very good, staff really want to enjoy your stay
We thought the location is excellent, in a very nice part of Wellington. The room was quite comfortable and had good heating. The staff we dealt with are great and very helpful. The breakfast is basic, but nice. You have breakfast with the guest house owner, so you do feel a bit monitored when you are in the dining room, having to ask for toast. There is tea and coffee anytime your like throughout the day. Recommend this place.

Great stay in Wellington
Location, value for money, well looked after
Most enjoyable stay, would stay again. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Continental breakfast ideal for us as we never eat "full English". Downhill 10 -15 minute walk into centre of town. Easily reached by buses if required.

Very pleasant stay
The location, wonderful breakfast, helpful staff
We arrived after 22 hours of travelling, were greated very friendly and give advice how to spend our time in Wellington after a short rest. We didn't need a car, only 15 minutes walk to the centre of town. As on every Thursday, the museum has long opening hours, we enjoyed that. After we came back, we slept like babies in the relaxed and quiet atmosphere and were greeted by a fresh breakfast and a nice talk with John, the owner. we could even walk to the car rental office and got some help from John again to park the car before leaving. Very nice start in New Zealand.

A good place to stay
Location, Comnfort, worth the money
The location and not so expensive to stay. The owner was very nice and good to talk with. The selection of the breakfast could be better, for those who are going to stay for awhile. The only thing that I have to say about the condition of the rooms, is the smell inside. The air in the bedrooms could be better, because the smell inside the rooms, when opened was smell of a old furniture or carpet smell.As a tourist you expect to come into room that has a clean air inside. Otherwise it was very good to stay at Richmond.
