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

Super spacious with large bedrooms (master bedroom with ensuite), kitchen, lounge room, aircons in every bedroom plus the loungeroom. We bought our groceries and had a bbq both nights for dinner. We used the... More

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

I visited Dubbo for a health conference. Fortunately my LHD booked me in to Matilda Motor Inn. Rooms are large, very clean and quiet. Centrally located to CBD. Food is great and service is second to none! I would recommend this venue to all travelling to this region.
