“Very quiet location with great service”
Reviewed March 2, 2010

My wife & I stayed at the Mataki Motel for a night on our travels between other locations in NZ. It is situated in a back street and has a very quiet location. It was within easy walking distance of Murchison village which had adequate (if not exceptional) facilities to get a meal.

Whilst it is clearly a motel with all their limitations, it had it's own kitchenette facilities. For a small additional charge, the owners (Bill & Maureen) are willing to provide an adequate continental breakfast delivered in the evening for you to eat at your leisure next morning- just what we needed and something that isn't available at all motels.

The bed was comfortable, there was a small seating area and a shower room. There appeared to be rather nicer units for anyone wishing to stay longer than we did.

All told, a rather better experience than we expected from a motel.
