We had a group of five people booking the two bedroom suite, and after a really long dive into Matamata we had only expected the barest of motels. But we walked into an apartment that felt bigger than some people's houses. Great comfortable beds and plush carpet. Two singles and a double, and they had made up the sofa bed... More

What a small but amazing place to stay - very hospitable, great staff who are friendly, excellent location... lots of restaurants and pubs just a 10min brisk walk away (tip: Google 'Horse and Jockey' - a bar restaurant with fantastic food and excellent NZ ale). But it's this motel's shower pressure that had me love @ first shower :) Tap... More

Excellent location, spacious and tidy rooms that were also warm and quiet. Staff were professional and gave us a warm welcome (even apologising for finishing a phone call booking when I entered the office). A+++

This motel is lovely. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was exceedingly spacious, modern, very clean, and with everything you need. It is a short walk from the main street and directly opposite a supermarket, and has a fully equipped kitchen. Free, good wifi. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would happily stay again (and again!).

We stayed for one night and were very impressed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean, tidy and modern. This is the only place to stay when visiting Matamata. Across the road is New World, The Warehouse - very handy location.

We stayed for 1 night at the Matamata Central Motel in August 2014 from the time we checked in i had a great feeling about the place. The staff are very friendly and we're willing to assist with any needs during the stay and there only a few places you go to these days that will treat you this well.... More

This is a great place to stay with excellent modern facilities. The room I was in had a separate lounge and bedroom and was the pick of the rooms I stayed in during my week long business trip. I can highly recommend this motel whether for business or pleasure. The room design has been well thought out to provide flexibility... More

Very modern motel with very clean rooms, very friendly and helpful host. Good bed so hence a great night sleep, no noise from nearby main road. Only drawback that we found was the slow heat pump in the room, took some time to start up and warm the room, but once it was going, room was lovely and warm and... More

Very friendly and helpful. Sue & John got us out of a bind as we had no motel booked. Beautiful clean room. Everything you need & more. Had a restless night sleep due to noise from room next door. Units are not sound proof from adjoining rooms. No road noise at all though.
