Ormondville station is available for exclusive overnight use offering a complete railway nostalgia experience in a rural setting.
Our accommodation standards are approved by the NZ Bed & Breakfast book. The main bedroom has a fine double bed, while an adjoining small bedroom has two single beds, the waiting room has a double bed as well as a twin bunk bed.
Between six and eight people can be comfortably accommodated within the station.
In addition, several modestly furnished, newly-restored two-bed railway workers' huts, mounted on wagons, can also provide a unique taste of how a railway worker once lived.
The station's main office, crammed with genuine station paraphernalia, serves as a lounge/dining area of distinctive character. There are modern ablutions, and a small, well-equipped kitchen. We will provide suggestions for cycle touring (although unfortunately we no longer provide the bicycles), lunch, walking, fishing and golf.
Up to six trains pass on weeknights, a highlight for some. Night trains on Saturdays or Sundays are uncommon.
SPECIAL NOTE: For safety, the station is suited to adults rather than young children. Dogs are 'BYO kennel' and must not be taken inside the station building out of consideration for subsequent guests and cleaning staff.
