Poor 2.0
Rude, uncomfortable, dirty and dingy
We arrived and had to go down to the basement to our room which smelled like damp and was quite unpleasant. It was a hot sunny day but we had to use the lights as it was that dark. The bed seemed really rather small, so I asked the owner if it was definitely a double and his response was extremely rude and his words were ‘I’m going to have to walk away because you are annoying me’. I was very offended and upset by this comment so I asked him not to be so rude to a customer and he continued to be very sarcastic and unpleasant. I walked back to our room feeling very uncomfortable so I contacted to ask what we should do. They contacted the man and he refused to give us a refund so we had no choice but to stay there. After the phone call he came down to our room and asked if we wanted a tape measure to measure the bed which I thought was very rude and unprofessional and he then said I’d called him a liar. Overall I was astounded with the service we received and wouldn’t recommended it to anybody. The room itself was smelly, dark and the sheets were also dirty with stains on a few of them. We didn’t have breakfast because we felt so uncomfortable so I can’t comment on that. I was very glad to leave after our two nights there.

Good 6.0
Was surprised that toilet and shower were not in a separate bathroom but open to the whole room. Host was a bit unfriendly. No jug or coffee in room, but available up an open stairway [in the rain!] to an upstairs room.

Great Experience of stay in Wellington
Our family, 3 adults, have stayed in Richmond Guest Home for two nights. It was a great experience, cheap price for great location. The room is renovated recently, has been mantained well. It's queit and private. There is reserved parking space in front of the accomnadation. 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!

Sauna Room
It was a hot evening and asked for a fan nicely of course and was told that they didn,t have any fan. The room had no air conditioning available either,other than that everything else was ok.
