Very clean motel, the owners were very friendly and obliging, they recommended a Thai restaurant, for dinner, nearby which was excellent. The only negative was the trucks through the night (the motel is on the main road) but if a little noise is not an issue we would highly recommend this pleasant stop. Jan and Peter

We stayed one night here on way to Brisbane. Outside of the motel is clean and appealing. On arrival at reception owners were very pleasand and helpful. Lady walked us to our room and explained the various switches for lights, tv, etc. - nice touch. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. There was very good furniture - bedside tables... More

The Hotel was very clean and the rooms were spotless and the owners were very pleasant to even if he was english lol. The only downside was the noise from the highway and double glazing would solve this,other than that have stayed in a lot worse Hotels and bed was good and clean shower and toilet!

We spent one night at this motel on the way from Sydney to Gold Coast. The property is located right next to the Pacific Highway. At night it was very noisy. Room was very dated and small. We paid usd170 for a family room which was a major ripoff. Will suggest others avoid this place when stop by Coffs Harbour.

The motel is located right next to the Pacific Highway. Traffic noise is non stop at night. There was no staff on the property at night. A group of very loud young people drank and screamed till 3am in the morning with no staff intervention at all. In fact we called the front desk many times. No one picked it... More

Thank you for your feedback however we would appreciate it if you would your comment honest and not exaggerate the truth. When booking motels in the future perhaps you should take into consideration the location, if you book a motel on a major highway then there is going to be traffic noise. I would also like to point out that... More

We stayed at the Matador on the way to and from a QLD holiday. The beds were comfortable, the room was very clean. We were happy to utilise the free WIFI in our room. We had a family room and it was perfect for a quick stopover on a long driving holiday. We had a pleasant stay both times.

My boyfriend and I came to coffs for my 18th birthday and were amazed by the staff. Truly lovely people who will do anything to make your stay a better time. Lovely rooms - a little vintage and the location is fantastic, close to the nightclubs, pubs and food places.

The new owners have really put time and money into having an excellent Motel that has all the things you need in very comfortable rooms. Cannot thank the owner enough for helping us to carry the bags upstairs to our Unit. Will certainly stay there again.
