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.

Date of stay: February 2021

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the ormond St motel and what a lovely welcome we got from Joy and Mike. We could not fault the hospitality, rooms were beautifully decorated, spotless and homely. We also had the pleasure of Joy showing us some of the recently decorated studios, what a wonderful job they and their crew are doing. We will definitely be back to stay and explore this quaint little town.
