The staff were lovely and very helpful. The motel is a bit old and basic but exceptionally well looked after and a few mod trimmings in the rooms to jazz it up a bit. There was attention to detail. Very clean and cosy, and complimentary breakfast at the door making it great value. Would stay again.

Booked online and was pleasantly surprised; the Inn exceeded our expectations. Super clean and very well cared for. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the room was tastefully furnished. And we enjoyed a complimentary hot chocolate from the coffee/tea station and a bottle of cold water each. Delightfully warm and helpful hosts too.

very comfortable king room, bed was enormous & comfortable, towels were lovely and soft. Room size good, chairs showing their age a little. Walking distance to main shopping area and eateries - ideal position for what we needed. would not hesitate to recommend staying here. Very friendly staff/owners.

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.

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.

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
