Really didn't want to leave. Everything was perfect and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Reading room was an unexpected bonus, very cosy. Perfect for our dog also. Can't wait to visit again.

We stayed overnight in this motel a week ago and we were very happy with the friendly service we received. We were shown to our room by the gentleman in reception (whom I assume was the owner) and also shown where everything was. The room was absolutely spotless. We have no complaints at all. The motel is walking distance to... More

One night stay where all we needed was a place to sleep. Lady took me to room, showed all the features, made sure we had a map of where to get a good meal in the morning. King room was well appointed and spotless, bathroom tiny, but very clean. Only dodgy item was the old style in wall aircon which... More

Sue was nice and friendly, a friend of mine had a toilet issue and asked what was going to happen as she needed to get to her room. The owner (Male) said to get her money back and check out abruptly. We weren't impressed. At night he was walking around naked in his apartment with the blinds not drawn. The... More

Firstly the toilet issue the truth is that there was a problem with the toilet which was rectified within the hour. The lady was very irate and requested another room unfortunately we were fully booked and did not have an alternative. Due to her irate manner I could only offer her a full refund if she wished to leave, she... More

Sue gave us a lovely welcome on arrival and was a wealth of knowledge when it came to the local area. Room was clean and the free wi-fi was the best we experienced in Australia! Would definitely recommend as the motel is just off the main road but not too far from the harbour and town centre. Thumbs up!

Customer service was the best yet; we were escorted to our room which was spacious and well fitted out. After a long drive from Nowra it was great to treated so warmly as guests.

Yes our Motel is on the Pacific Highway but then you knew this when you booked !!!! we have 17 rooms and 17 car parking spaces if you cannot fit your car in the space provided it is hardly our fault so your comment re this is somewhat unfair.

We stayed in this motel for 1 night while traveling from QLD back to Sydney. This is a clean and tidy motel located just off the highway and walking distance to the center of town. The interior has had some updates, the WiFi worked well and the King bed was comfortable which made for a good night's sleep. The location... More

I booked a national sports team and there parents to stay at the Matador which was a pleasant experience for all. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms very clean and met expectations.

We were doing a road trip from Brisbane to Melbourne and one of the stops was in Coffs Harbour. The owner was very nice and helpful providing food options nearby. The room was very clean but too many furniture making it slightly cramped. The a/c unit in our room was weak. Wifi was free. Overall, good accommodation and will recommend... More

Thank you for your feedback your time is appreciated. We are sorry to hear that you found your room cramped. As for the air con we would have liked to have had the opportunity to check the controls whilst some of the air con are not new they are very normally efficient for the size of the room. Thank you...
