    Room heating could be upgraded. Electric jug in room would have been good along with glass(es) and cup(s)

    Friendly and helpful duty manager. Free WiFi. Adequate continental breakfast. Prompt owner email contact re unpleasant experience with I had with the bedroom (See below).

    The basement level room was damp and musty, curtains very mouldy and unpleasant odour. I refused to pay full tarriff and paid at a discount. Owner emailed me later after departure same day and apologised about the establishment's bedroom experience and is rectifying.

    Convenient as close to city. Rooms comfortable and clean even though it's not flash. I was comfortable in my en-suite room. Breakfast simple but adequate. I chose Richmond House over a single room at a couple of backpackers which were the same price because Richmond House included breakfast.

    First appearance made me wonder if it was a bit run down - maybe if I hadn't pre-booked I might have walked away. I booked it for the online rate, I probably wouldn't have if gone there at the usual rate.

    I found the guest house to be warm and clean. The bed was comfortable - and great that there was a heater in the room. The staff were welcoming and comfortable to be around. Breakfast was a pleasant meal, chatting to other guests and the staff. Nice to be able to check in pretty much on arrival in Wellington; and the staff kindly let me leave my bag there on the second day so I didn't have to lug it around all day. Fantastic that they organised the airport shuttle too!!

    Possibly my only suggestion would be that it would be nice if each downstairs room had a small kettle, tea bags, sugar etc. Or even one kettle and cups, spoons, tea etc on a little table in the passage. Preferably the former. It's wet and cold going up to the dining room at night. Not very pleasant having to drag on all weather shoes and raincoat to go upstairs to make tea: especially if already in PJ's. And I only brought one pair of shoes - boots!

    Hey johnboy it says in a review from one of my sad country man that you dont' like English people, Well im' sure she wouldnt' have liked me either , , but be assured that most of the people that stay at the great Richmond Guest House not only like your place but stand in awe' of you and can only imagine what you have been through to be honest i believe that when some delicate souls meet you for the first time the are a little taken back , but as they say you are the man god bless big man and i will say a prayer for you while you are away

    Guest house is very handy for town, the owner, John, was very helpful and easy going and put in a lot of effort to make sure the stay was excellent. Very reasonable rates, recommended.

    I liked the facilities (room, breakfast lounge), the room (pretty confortable bed, very nice in-room bathroom) and specially the friendly and warm service provided by the house administration... Felt really welcomed and won't hesitate on staying at this place every other time I visit Wellington. Totally recommended.

    Nothing I can recall at this moment.

    Very good

    The location is just nice, a 10 minutes walk will reach the city and there is a bus stop nearby too. It is a quiet place and the owner is very helpful. I feel like staying at home and it was very important to me as I came alone far far away from Malaysia. Thanks John!
