Have been traveling to Dubbo for the last 3 weeks and Matilda Motor Inn is very comfortable and very clean. Staff are very friendly and courteous. Sharon and Murray are very warm and welcoming. Always great to stay here while in Dubbo!

Good : room was clean and bathroom functional. Staff friendly and courteous. Bad : Bathroom very very compact where the shower door just misses the toilet and you have to do a tango around it to get in and out of the shower. Not a fun thing to do when wet and tired. Sound insulation not so great as the... More

Yeh it was central, close to town, free parking, comfy bed, and I noticed there was an electric blanket although I didn't need it. I had the executive room. I don't like to be too critical about things that you cant change, but the walls were thin, I could hear the people coughing in the room next door. But seriously,... More

Every time we stay overnight in Dubbo, we always wind up staying back at the Matilda. It is great value for money and the rooms are very clean and well-maintained. The room we stayed in most recently was a little cramped. A bit more space would have been nice, but it was a pleasant stay all the same.

I have recently stayed for 8 nights at the Matilda in an executive room and found it a quiet, relaxing place to stay. It was great to be off the highway. The service and the food are both excellent. The restaurant has recently been renovated and the menu has something for everyone. Looking forward to my next visit!
