I booked in this place because it was affordable and offered all the basics for a single night stay. When I got there I found a place much bigger than expected, nothing fancy but very comfortable for a couple. It was clean, quiet, the bed was good for a pleasant sleep, and the kitchen had all the basics. I really... More

Several members of our family have stayed here and found it to be an excellent choice from a number of points of view. It really is well priced, for one thing! For the level of comfort and amenity, the room rate is very good. All our stays were just one person on their own and just for a day or... More

Stay in the king studio here for a night before heading to Turangi from Whitianga. Overall this motel is very convenient and comfortable with well equip kichen, good shower and comfortable bed. Couldn't ask for more. The only downside is very limited internet access, only if the owner can give a little more data for internet will be just great.

Loved our brief one night stay here. I cannot imagine anywhere more spotless. Really immaculate and a lovely pool to cool down in . It's near the main road so you can hear the traffic of course but we slept very well . Nice to be able to walk into Matamata and very handy for Hobbiton. Thank you .

We arrived at 22:15 and the reception was closed. We rang the motel and a woman attended us and could put us in the room. I really apologize to don't understand the way motels work (there is not a place like this in Brazil) and I am very thankful for this. The room is big and is almost my home... More

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

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.
