We are a country motel with Fab attitude.. Very clean and welcoming one bedroom apartments that most have been recently renovated and one wee cute studio unit with full facilities! We are situated down a side street so its a very peaceful location.. Gardens all over the place with a community garden for guests to pick some fresh produce .. Love to see you sometime Cheers Joy and Mike

Excellent amenities, including pool. The motel has been refurbished to a high standard and tastefully done. Hostess Joy is friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for her. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here based on a previous review. All the positive comments were genuine. This is a fantastic little well appointed motel in a small town - often hard to find. Joy was a great host and made us very welcome. Would recommend to any one. Thank you so much! Ross and Amanda

10/10, Joy and Mike what amazing hosts you both are. From our phone conversations inquiring about our bookings till the day we departed, you couldn’t do enough for us. Very friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed all the chats we had together throughout our 3 units. You did so many lovely things to make our stay special for us all. Closing the drapes, turning our heaters on each day, it was fabulous to return “home” each day, feeling the love. The motels are a credit to you both and your staff. They are spotlessly clean, beds very comfie and warm. Shower amazing. We will definitely stay with you again when next in Woodville and can’t recommend you highly enough. Thank you doesn’t seem enough. 😘😘

Stayed in this motel a few times now as we have family living near by. It has always been an exceptional experience with the most considerate hosts. The Units are of a very high standard and the hosts go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. This is our first choice of motel to stay in when we are in the general area.

This is a gem of a business and a brilliant place to stay. I have stayed for both business and pleasure a number of times.

Fully recommend a stay here to anyone

We traveled to Woodville from Auckland for a karate tournament and found this motel online. From the moment of booking, the experience was lovely. Joy and Mike are so friendly and welcoming, the motel grounds are immaculate, our unit was perfect, and they made a good recommendation for dinner - Smoke n Wood. We'd definitely stay again.

We received a lovely warm welcome from Joy. What a lovely lady. We had a one bedroom unit which was spacious and clean and well equipped. Joy had popped the heater on and left a light on as she was expecting us to arrive in the dark. Such a lovely friendly thoughtful host. The Easter bunny left us hot cross buns too! Joy suggested Smoke n Wood for dinner which was a great recommendation. An all-round great stay. Thanks Joy 🤩

I have stayed in lots of hotels around the world, including the odd penthouse suite. But nothing beats great hospitality. Ormond St Motel has this in spades. Our hostess (forgotten her name sorry) was wonderful. Even checking on me to make sure I had eaten and offer a home cooked meal (Chicken Curry) if I hadn't as she had prepared it for other guests who were staying. The room was, clean and fresh, comfortable and had everything I needed for my two nights stay. But kindness by the owner was outstanding. Thank you - nga mihi tino arohanui whaea.

All newly renovated, great presentation and delightful hosts. Joy is a real joy and we can not speak highly enough of all the ways she went to to make us feel welcome including appearing at the door with banana splits for dessert. We will definitely be back to stay as we try again for the next Wings over Wairarapa.
