About Us

This 19th-century villa in the neighbourhood of Mount Victoria, has become a lovely adults-only completely smoke free bed and breakfast. Several years ago, The Richmond Guest House had a serious fire forcing its' closure for a few years. Despite the dramatic effect it had on John Cairns, your host and owner of The Richmond Guest House, this unique and straight-talking man with a very dry sense of Kiwi humour will ensure your stay is not one to forget. John has a passion for improving the historic old villa and works tirelessly to provide a comfortable and homely accommodation for the weary traveller.

Ideally located, many of Wellington’s must visit places are all within easy walking distance

1.3kms - Te Papa museum –  The famous Museum of New Zealand – free entry and open every day except Christmas Day.

800m - Courtney Place. Take a stroll to enjoy the wide variety of cuisines at the many restaurants and bars.

1.1kms - Cuba Street. Enjoy a cup of coffee while browsing the great selection of shops, or experience the night market held every Friday and Saturday evening.

2.2kms - Red Cable Car. It will take you to the top of the hill for $4 where you will enjoy gorgeous views of the city. From there you can access the beautiful Botanical Gardens or take a free shuttle to explore Zealandia
