The Matador Inn was clean, tidy & quiet, despite its proximity to the Highway. Whilst the rooms are simple, they have everything you need for an overnight pit-stop on your way down the coast. We were very impressed with how the owner's went out of their way to accommodate us, despite our very late arrival time (11pm) and early departure... More

This place was almost excellent, you tend not to expect too much from motels but this one was very good indeed. I checked in twice here on a road trip and got room 3 both times. The receptionist was very friendly and offered maps and advice about things to see and do in the area (there isn't a lot but... More

Exceptional service. I was escorted to my room and staff made sure everything was working and explained how to operate TV etc from bedside controls. There is even a lounge/ library area where you can relax. Very pleasant stay and will definitely be back.

Despite being of an older style the establishment is extremely clean and well kept. The rooms are motel style no frills but tidy and nicely dressed. The bed was awesome and the breakfast included was perfect as it meant no delay to starting out early the next morning. There is a wealth of local knowledge, character and hospitality to be... More

I stayed here 1 night for New Year with my boyfriend. The service was excellent, very friendly and helpful with good tips for restaurants and knowledge of what was going on for New Year. We actually stayed here nearly 6 years ago and it has been lovingly refreshed since then. The rooms are better than some hotels I have stayed... More

For a one night stay this hotel was good value. The rooms are clean and we had good service, i have to comment on the comfortable beds, I had a good sleep considering the hotel is quite close to the main road. Would not hesitate to book again.

Clean and well decorated this 1970's motel has been retro-styled and is actually pretty nice. The bed was comfortable and we had no issues with traffic noise despite being close to the highway. No hairdryer or plates and knives/forks in room, but all were available from reception, who were very helpful. Many of the rooms are not on the ground... More

Retro styled motel, with very comfortable rooms/fittings and exceptional staff. Location is very central - you can walk to the shops in the town centre - but also note that the motel is located next to a highway so for very light sleepers, this could be an issue (though this did not bother us) We traveled with a toddler and...

Very well presented, clean, nicely decorated with an exceptionally comfortable king size bed. Ask at check in for a haidryer if you need one as they are not located in the room. Owners called a taxi for us to travel to the fantastic Shearwater restaurant.

All rooms offer comfortable beds, quality interiors and amenities, LED TVs, Foxtel, ipod docking stations, Lanovera personal products, a tea and coffee larder with quality supplies, toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board and private dining space.
