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...

We were a party of nine (three families) recently stayed in the 4 bedroom cottage and all I can say is 'WOW'! Yes, everything was fantastic from the moment we walked in to the moment we left.

I have been staying at the Matilda at different times over the past 10 years. I have stayed in the front and back, many times in the same room. I like the back section as it is secure and very quiet. The rooms are spacious and clean. I can see the Matilda is under going a face lift and I... More

I've stayed in this motel once with the old management and twice with the new management and wow has it changed. Firstly, the couple that own it now have giving the whole place a massive face lift, from an external paint job to refurbishment of the rooms. Moreover, both rooms I stayed in where large, spacious, with very comfortable beds... More
