Stayed here only one night while passing through Dubbo but Matilda had all you could want - friendly check-in, clean room, nice pool, quiet central location in town away from the highway, easy parking.

We stayed at Matilda for 2 nights and enjoyed great service from very pleasant staff. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and provide everything you need. Beautiful (& plentiful) towels etc; not only liquid soap and shampoos but also wrapped miniature soaps. Microwave, toaster, electric jug all supplied. Lovely!

Stayed at Matilda for two nights in a budget room. Room was small but clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Great value and within walking distance to eating places. Has a restaurant on site but not open on weekends so didn't try it out. Would stay here again if in Dubbo.
