This is better than your standard motel. It is newer and clean. It's a family run and operated business - they were nice and helpful. The only downside was we were put in the handicap room and the shower head was very low so you had to stoop down to shower (room #10). Other than that, I think it is...

We were extremely happy with our stay at this motel. The rooms were beautifully furnished and absolutely spotless, spacious and very comfortable. We were in a two storey townhouse unit which overlooked the main road. I noticed on another review someone complained about the truck noise but although we heard a couple, it did not disturb our sleep in any...

The rooms are quite luxurious and well maintained, with double glazed windows to ensure a good nights rest. Located just out of the main hub of Matamata, everything is within easy walking distance. Breakfast was basic, but filling. A very pleasant stay to kick off our Hobbiton visit.

We were really surprised by this motel. Our expectations were low, for such a small town and being a motel rather than a hotel. The motel was spotless, modern, comfortable, new. Everything good and more. I believe the management team must be very meticulous. But being so meticulous comes with community rules. They have a small sign in the kitchen,...

It had a good size open plan lounge, dining area and well equipped kitchen with a full bathroom (separate bath and shower) and 2 bedrooms, twin and double. It is close to Matamata...

We stayed here for one night while visiting the Hobbiton. I was pleasantly surprised with the interior and comfort of the room. Love the bed and the bathroom was very clean. The water pressure from the shower was strong. The room was very spacious and I really enjoyed the night staying there.

I'm extremely impressed with their service and cleanliness with their rooms. I had the family suite and it was amazing! The beds were made to perfection as well as the rooms and living space were exceptionally tidy. John and Sue were quick to serve us at the front desk as well as their laundry service (for a charge) was a...
