A very pleasant overnight stay. We were warmly welcomed at reception, and the lovely lady then actually took us to our rooms and explained how to operate things. We had one queen and one king room, both VERY clean, EXTREMELY comfortable beds and no smells to the room. We could open the window for fresh air and their was an... More

Traveling from Brisbane to Sydney. Found this little gem on Tripadvisor and was not sorry. The Staff are more than helpful, showing us the room and the features. Explaining the way things work and even suggesting restaurants in the area. As we were traveling by motorcycle, they even made sure it was looked after. The room was clean and warm.... More

Not where i would put the premier king rooms. There is considerable walking of stairs. There was no name brand toiletries not like mentioned in ad. Wifi is poor to say the least... More

We have stayed six or seven times at The Matador Motor Inn, on our travels between Gold Coast and Sydney. It is a convenient stopping point, particularly on the northward drive. It has always been clean, comfortable and, most importantly, affordable. The hosts have always been welcoming and Sue & Steve continue that tradition. They were very helpful. While some... More

Matador looks like a typical seventies motel, it's been stylishly renovated with lots of little surprises. We had a king bed room. It was very comfy bed. Everything was super clean and in good condition. My husband was worried by the noise from the highway but I was so comfy it didn't worry me. The lady at reception was super... More

It’s good to know that some of our guests appreciate what we have tried to achieve with the decor in the seventies theme yes it was built in the early seventies but that does not mean that it cannot be welcoming clean and comfortable which is our aim. Thanks again. More

We had a great stay in the Matador Inn, the bed was huge and very comfortable, all the amenities were well appointed and the advice from the owner about where to have dinner was a great asset to new visitors like us.

This place was inviting as soon as I entered. I was escorted to my room (which was clean and well presented) and shown where to find what I needed. As a cleaner and manager, service and cleanliness get A+ from me. Thank you for a very pleasant night.

We were delighted with the service. Taking us to our room to explain the various features of the room was not expected but welcomed. Continental breakfast was included in the price and bringing it to the room just after we arrived determined when we wanted to eat and leave the next morning. We'll be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Matador Motor Inn has been operating continuously for more than 40 years and been a home away from home in Coffs Harbour for thousands of guests. In fact the Matador is one of the most popular stop-overs for travellers on the Pacific Highway travelling between Sydney and Brisbane. We have completed numerous refurbishments so now more than ever the Matador is a fabulous choice if you are looking for boutique style motel accommodation. You can enjoy a stay in clean and comfortable rooms. We offer a choice of room configurations: from premium queen and king rooms to twin and family room options. All rooms offer comfortable beds, quality interiors and amenities, LED TVs, Foxtel, ipod docking stations, Lanovera personal products, a tea and coffee larder with quality supplies, toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board and private dining space. All rooms face due north and upper level offers district views. Select family rooms offer a private balcony. We offer an outdoor pool and guest lounge to relax and enjoy as well as a quality, in-room breakfast package. Select pet-friendly rooms are also available, but regretfully we only accept small dogs 10kg and under. Not only is the Matador a regular choice for holidaymakers, it is also very popular with business travellers. We offer free WIFI, a desk area for your laptap or tablet and lounge access. Regular corporate clients are also eligible for special corporate rates so please make inquiries with our friendly team. The Matador provides off street and undercover parking but we must limit parking to one car per room.We wish you safe travels! ... more   less
