Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The staff were soo friendly and helpful, making sure everything was perfect for me. I felt like a special A1 guest the whole time. The room had a full kitchen which worked well for me and it was a perfect location for what I needed. Recommended to anyone.

Hotel's Favourite
I booked 5 nights from BNE airport before boarding a flight to WLG to be as close as possible to the hospital due to a family emergency! With no end date known, I found myself having to extend my stay at least 6 times and the staff were so patient/accommodating while trying to minimise any disruptions for me. 33 nights later I checked out and only ever change rooms once which for me, was absolutely amazing! The location is so convenient to all local amenities & it’s a very modern and fancy facility, most definitely more superior to any hotel I’ve been to. The team are so polite, friendly and very professional. It was a very delightful stay & I highly recommend!! 10/10 for me! Thank you again. AMIE! 💛

I book travel for multiple travellers to Wellington for our company and always ask about the accommodation I book them into. Sojourn Apartments in Riddiford St have been the best place I book that is not only close to the hospital but also impeccable in cleanliness and service. My dealings with the team at Sojourn have been effortless and our team are very happy everytime one of them stays with you.

The location is perfect. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The room is spacious and squeaky clean. There are windows for ventilation and a lovely new kitchenette. This is now my favourite place to stay in Wellington. Don’t tell anyone as I always want a room when I come to town 😊

Second stay at Sojourn Riddiford for hospital visit. Location is convenient and removes any worries about navigating traffic to make appointment and uncertain pick-up times. Room was very clean and staff really helpful. We had a bit of a problem and staff went out of their way to come up with a solution. That makes such a difference when you're also dealing with the stresses that go with medical issues.

Our Visit was spectacular from the time we visited reception to the time we vacated. The Hotel Hosts were very welcoming and impeccably presented looking very professional. The cleanliness and modern style of the hotel displays class. The suite we occupied was absolutely beautiful and clean to a very high standard. and those extra little touches and condiments were just lovely, no matter if you visit for one night or a week you will be delighted. The Sojourn Hotel on Riddiford street Wellington is well worthy of a 5 star Rating from me. Thank you to all for such a pleasant stay.

A convenient hotel across from the Wellington Regional Hospital - which was the reason for our stay - it was very comfortable, clean, easy check in check out, modern fixtures, it had everything we needed. A very quiet space in the night which was important. The staff are friendly and considerate. We would most definitely recommend this hotel.

This is at best 3 star. No frills. Very basic clinical rooms. Nice staff. Parking on site limited and then quite a walk if you have to park at Woolworths. Busy road. Most reviews from 1 or 2 contributions suggests trip advisor ratings stacked up ! This is not worthy of number one hotel in Wellington - be fair guys or you ruin trip advisor from what it should be - independent traveller reviews. If properties are not fairly described you end up with reviews like mine ! I would have stayed elsewhere for close to $500 a night. I expected better.
