Was in Dubbo recently for a Conference at the new theatre and convention centre and had the pleasure of staying at the Matilda Motor Inn. I was arriving late to the motel and called ahead only to be greeted by a friendly voice who made sure everything was in order following a long trip. The rooms are very well appointed... More

Stayed as a business group for 2 nights and will certainly return. Clean, comfortable and large rooms, extremely hospitable management and good food. Salt and pepper calamari for dinner was excellent and plenty of choice for breakfast. Well worth a visit.

This motel was well run, clean and friendly. The bed was great and we slept well, with no noise. We enjoyed a good continental breakfast, at a very reasonable price. The WIFI was free and there was no dropout, which is good for the area. Good spot, close to everything we wanted.

This little motel in Dubbo absolutely amazed us with the quality of the restaurant, room, staff and bar! We booked late in the day by mobile internet and the check in was so smooth- quick and professional. But to then see the extensive wine list and to have a steak cooked perfectly - well the management is to be congratulated... More

I booked into a bungalow which was in a very quiet spot at the back of the complex. It had windows on both sides so was very light and had a great airflow. The kitchen was small but very adequate for light meals. The wardrobe was very small which was suprising given how much space there was in the main... More

Hi Diane, firstly thank you so much for the awesome review, we really appreciate that you took the time to write it. The bungalows are proving very popular (although our entire Executive wing, 18 rooms in all, seem to be Dubbos best kept secret) as they can not be seen from the street! Although we are letting more people know... More

All we needed. Free wifi, tea making facilities and microwave all good. Cable TV worked well. Parking in front of unit and walking distance to downtown Dubbo and many good restaurants. Tried the restaurant at the Matilda Motel on our last night and were not disappointed. Excellent food and service.

For a budget motel we were really surprised with the service, the clean room and the restaurant you will not want to miss. The pool was clean and very refreshing after traveling in the heat of the day. This Motor inn is worth a stay.

This is a good place to stay when passing through Dubbo. It's probably an older establishment but well maintained. Our room was spacious and clean. It had a microwave, sink, fridge and good air conditioning as it was 40 degrees outside but we were comfortable in our room. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Thanks for a nice stay.

We were in room 117 at the back of the complex. It was really quiet, and our vehicle was parked directly outside our unit. The room itself, although nothing fancy, is very well appointed, with microwave, a large (ish) fridge, a large flat screen TV with cable, tea and coffee facility, table and two chairs, fan, aircon, electric blanket, blanket...
