We stopped at this motel by chance and it turned out to be the best thing. It has a fantastic bed, lovely and quiet area, very clean and it has Joy! She can't do enough for you, and by the time you leave you will feel you have made a friend. If I get the chance to come back to Woodville I know where I will be staying. Thank you Joy for making your motel feel like we were home.
Lyn and Ian.

We came up from Wgtn for a friends wedding and booked 2 nights here. The motel has been recently renovated and the units are very spacious - perfectly suiting our family of 3. Lots of fun to be had at the pool and on the trampoline. Super close to a fabulous bug play area and 60secs from Woodville. What is the standout is Joy, the new owner. She has put her heart and soul in to the property and cannot do enough for you. She even lent me her GHDs for a wedding after mine broke! An absolute gem of a lady!! Thank you for looking after us all!

Again came a roos this little jem by accident having left Wellington after ferry journey. Super nice hostess, brought milk and cookies on arrival. Big spacious unit, brilliant shower, spotless clean and the best price ever.

Did not try the pool so can't comment, no hesitation to recommend, would stay again for sure. We stayed in unit 1.

Cozy place, decent price, but nothing beats feeling at home away from home. The new owner is making big changes so I expect it will only get better.
The pool is small and freezing cold, but enjoyable.
The town itself is a nice quiet place with a huge selection of second hand and antique shops, randomly enough.

We happened on this great motel pretty much by accident; we left Wellington early in the afternoon and decided to break the trip about halfway go Hawker's Bay. Although there are more motels in Masterton, there is also a McDonald's there which eliminates the town by our rules.
The Ormond Street Motel has been recently taken over by new management and it shows not just in the upgrading of the facilities but especially in the help given us by the manager, Joy, who is appropriately named!
The room itself was as well-equipped and comfortable as any Kiwi room we have had in our seven weeks here but what sets the establishment apart is the way in which Joy went above and beyond to meet our special needs. I won't specify what she did for us as it would be unfair if all guests were to expect the same, but truly you arrive as a visitor and leave as a friend.
