The kind people at Matilda Motor Inn have posted it to my home and I can once again get discounts at my local. I hadn't even noticed it was missing and... More

My sister and I recently stayed at the Matilda Motor Inn and were very happy with the modern clean 2 bedroom ground floor family room accommodation. The place was so clean, the heater worked well and there was a double hot plate, microwave and small fridge that enabled us to prepare simple meals. This affordable accommodation was all that we...

A fantastic stay here. Centrally located in Dubbo with genuinely friendly and welcoming staff, everything you could want in the rooms and amenities. Enjoyed the fantastic meal and service in the restaurant. A nice surprise and not what I had expected in Dubbo. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others.

Lovely owners. Very friendly and talkative. I got a room which smelled upon entry and told the owner who immediately came out and got me a new room. They got a sign saying they sell sleep. I got to hand it to them the room was very quiet! I got a good nights sleep. Nice Firm mattress!
