Firstly, this motel is well located near the centre of Matamata, has adequate parking and will provide a decent continental breakfast. The rooms are big enough with comfortable beds with electric blankets, good TVs and a functional bathroom. There are a couple of problems though in that WiFi is very limited and not free and the rooms generally are rather... More

Lovely clean warm and inviting unit, owner was very pleasant. Nice quiet motel. Would recommend to others wanting a clean comfortable motel It's not ultra modern, but that didn't bother me at all. Very close to town, so walking was not a problem. Would love to have had a hair dryer in the unit :( still i managed, no biggie..might... More

We had a job to do in Matamata that we didn't get done in one day so therefore had to stay overnight. We wanted to stay somewhere close to central downtown to make it quicker and easier to get into town for dinner. The Broadway motel was fully booked and the manager recommended the Maple - being the next closest.... More

Stayed here with a friend on 21 November in order to visit Hobbiton. We found our unit very comfortable and clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It is in a handy location. I highly recommend this motel and I look forward to returning here during summer.

We spent almost a week here. Our host was very friendly and helpful, even took my laundry off the washing line when it was about to rain which was very appreciated. The room was very clean, with a lovely modern shower box. We used our own towels (some were provided however) and Derek must have popped them in the dryer... More

My friend and I stayed at Maple Lodge in April 14. I found the owners to be friendly and nice. The Tourist Info Centre called and booked it for us. We had a one bedroom unit with a divan in the lounge. It was fine for what we wanted and had a kitchen if you wanted to cook. It has... More

I stayed here alone for one night in a 1 bedroom suite after visiting Hobbiton and deciding to break the journey one night. Wish I'd not bothered and continued on my way. I urge anyone to skip this motel and find somewhere else to stay. The place felt dirty, I had to spend nearly two hours swotting flies which were... More

we stayed in two units and it was very nice. clean/neat/tidy and very close to the town centre. would certainly go back if it was for 2+nights stay. the host were very friendly, they made the entire stay very comfortable. 30minutes from cambridge so it worked out very handy for us as we celebrated mom's bday in that town.

My daughter and I stayed here as it was close to family who lived in Matamata. Looked for and paid via internet and e-mail. Always prompt reply with no issues. Accomodation I only put as average as we were away most of the 2 days we were there visiting, but had everything we needed and wanted. Did not partake in... More

We stayed in the motel as a larger group, which meant we had booked the whole place for 10 days. You would have thought that bringing a good chunk of money would make a difference- I was very disapointed with the way the hostess behaved, she was looking for faults every single minute of the day. Two of the rooms... More
