Rating reflects the most excellent customer service. Friendly, welcoming and obliging. Steve made us feel like family - thank you!. Stayed in room 18 which was everything we needed. Close to great restaurants and shops. Only stayed one night but we will be back for a longer stay.

Stayed here again on 15/7/2015 for one night, three of us my partner grand daughter and myself, great stopover on the way home to Sydney from Noosa, a bit noisy with trucks going past constantly but overall an excellent place to stay.

We found the Motel to be very inviting with the beautiful plants that decorated the outside of the rooms. The room was very clean and our king size bed was extremely comfortable. The air cond. was really quiet which is important to me as I find it hard to sleep with the noise that most air cond. makes.The hosts (owners)... More

On arriving at the Matador Motel we were welcomed by the owners very warmly and then shown to our room (which is a first) and it was explained to us how everything worked in the room. On mentioning breakfast it was explained they could supply a continental breakfast for $10 per person the evening before which was promptly delivered to... More

For a building built in the 1970's this motel could not have been cleaner nor more comfortable. Owners were friendly and helpful, rooms tidied everyday, lovely continental breakfast. Motel on highway but noise of trucks rarely heard

Checking in and out was very easy, catered for large booking with ease. Friendly and helpful, short walk to city centre, room tidy and kept clean, plenty of hot water, coffee and tea facilities with fridge in room, owners are keen to ensure a happy stay.

after a 9 hour train trip we found this very warm welcome awaiting us. The lovely lady at reception marked up a map to show us where the best eating places were and then came up the stairs to show us the "workings" of our room. The king bed was huge and so comfortable I wasn't in a hurry to... More

We stayed here to break the journey from Sydney to the Far North Coast. Although by no means brand new, our room was clean, recently painted and nicely appointed. On-line room rate was good value. Staff at Reception were most helpful with suggestions for Restaurants. Main road noise did not really bother us. Property even has a separate guest lounge... More
