Room was simple and everything we needed. The mattress was very comfy. Being on the bottom level room 2 was a little annoying as we could hear everyone walking past/talking loudly outside out door at 2 am in the morning. So I would recommend a upstairs room but apart from that it was a very comfortable stay

We booked on short notice, travelling with a baby. The owners greeted us and introduced us to the hotel in a very friendly and thorough way... old fashioned service! The rooms were updated, the bed comfortable and the owners very accommodating. The hotel is obviously cared for by the owners and the room was much quieter than I thought it...

Motel was easy to locate and the unit was clean and tidy. Staff were polite, attentive and most helpful. You are in walking distance of Port Macquarie harbour and close to shops and services. The position is ideal for an early start on the road.

I had to spend a few nights in local hotels while my unit was being renovated. I chose to stay at the Matador Motor Inn. I have driven past it on my way to work many times.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Matador Motor Inn has been operating continuously for more than 40 years and been a home away from home in Coffs Harbour for thousands of guests. In fact the Matador is one of the most popular stop-overs for travellers on the Pacific Highway travelling between Sydney and Brisbane. We have completed numerous refurbishments so now more than ever the Matador is a fabulous choice if you are looking for boutique style motel accommodation. You can enjoy a stay in clean and comfortable rooms. We offer a choice of room configurations: from premium queen and king rooms to twin and family room options. All rooms offer comfortable beds, quality interiors and amenities, LED TVs, Foxtel, ipod docking stations, Lanovera personal products, a tea and coffee larder with quality supplies, toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board and private dining space. All rooms face due north and upper level offers district views. Select family rooms offer a private balcony. We offer an outdoor pool and guest lounge to relax and enjoy as well as a quality, in-room breakfast package. Select pet-friendly rooms are also available, but regretfully we only accept small dogs 10kg and under. Not only is the Matador a regular choice for holidaymakers, it is also very popular with business travellers. We offer free WIFI, a desk area for your laptap or tablet and lounge access. Regular corporate clients are also eligible for special corporate rates so please make inquiries with our friendly team. The Matador provides off street and undercover parking but we must limit parking to one car per room.We wish you safe travels! ... more   less
