“John was an amazing host, very friendly, had great stories, and extremely accommodating. The room itself was massive, and the antique furniture was a great touch!”

“We spent a week at Richmond guest house. Everybody was kind and made us feel like at home. The hotel is located 20 minutes from the city center and has all facilities. Very good breakfast, laundry service, fresh towels every day.”

“We would definitely come back and stay here in the future! Definitely one of the best deals in Wellington!”

“I couldn’t recommend John and Richmond guest house enough. I only stayed one night, but I couldn’t fault the accommodation. Great location for price, comfortable rooms with every ring that you need & a great host.”

“It was a great experience, cheap price for great location. The room is renovated recently, has been maintained well. It’s quiet and private. There is reserved parking space in front of the accommodation. John, the owner, is such a kind person, offered the great help and sight seeing advices. He has a sense of humor and kindly prepares breakfast for everyone. Thank you John!”
