Best value budget accommodation in Wellington”

Richmond Guest House is by far the best value budget accommodation in Wellington. It's only an 8-minute walk to Courtney Place and not that much more to Te Papa. Breakfast is included as is as much wifi as you may need. The rooms are large, warm and well-kept. Make this your home away from home in Wellington.

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.

Ideal for city exploring ”

We'd stayed with John before, just the two of us , but this time our adult daughter came too. We had a large room with tea and coffee, microwave and fridge, and everything was super clean. The shower room was huge. If you want a room with character and a host with a sense of humour, Richmond House is the place.

Easy to find and a 8 minute walk from airport bus station to Guest house. Good kitchen area with possibility of cooking own lunches and dinner. great library with lots of good books to read. Rooms comfortable and ensuite works good. Its a friendly place and close to the central city. Enjoyed the stay. The guest house is an old style building but close to everything and good value for money. The way breakfast was served was very nice and made it seem more like a home setting.

Richmond guest house is a clean place and we stayed there for one night. Breakfast was just variety of cereals and toast. I wasn’t happy about the front desk person, he was very rude and abrupt and not very helpful. Since we were there for one night, it didn’t bother me. We used the map to go around the places. The location is close to everything.

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.

Extremely Friendly Host, good room quality, nice location

this b&b is the nicest place i had ever stayed in new zealand. (my trip has 21 days and visited many of towns in nz) 1. the host is extremely nice and friendly. nice to have chat with the host. 2. in room facilities is good as well. although the common room may displayed as a little bit old because of the antiques. 3. although it shows no car park available, you can also park outside the b&b and the host can provide the parking pass to you. 4. the location is tranquil, and can have a walk to wellington central for about 15-20 mins walk. better to have a car.

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.

Five minute walk to Mt Victoria where several of the scenes from Lord of the Rings movies were shot. LOTR Tour companies picked us up in front of our door and dropped us off there after. Within ten minutes walking distance of four star restaurants, fast food & beer. A fifteen minute walk gets you down to Courtenay Place, groceries, shopping, the waterfront and five-star restaurants.

Location is perfect, good value for the price,

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is not right downtown and about a 10 minute walk to the street with all the bars and restaurants. This is a good thing, as downtown Wellington can get loud at night. It was an easy walk to the bars and an easy walk back, and when I got there, the room was comfortable and quiet. Also, this place pulls off the bed and breakfast thing without feeling like I am staying in someones personal house. It felt like a hotel, which is a good thing. I would probably stay here again.
