This isn't a bad hotel, it is clean and convenient with friendly staff. It is a place to stay on the way up the coast, but if you get a room closer to the highway end it isn't a quiet place to stay. The staff provided some great advice on local hidden delights.

Travelling through so needed a bed for the night, used booking.com to book this hotel as it was after 6pm when we arrived. The lady was very welcoming on arrival and gave us a run down on Coffs Harbour and local eateries. It was really appreciated that she took the time with us being out of town. Room was sufficient...

The proprietors are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but very comfortable. Breakfast is a continental one but there is plenty. The Matador is conveniently placed on the main drag into Coffs.

The staff were lovely and very helpful. The motel is a bit old and basic but exceptionally well looked after and a few mod trimmings in the rooms to jazz it up a bit. There was attention to detail. Very clean and cosy, and complimentary breakfast at the door making it great value. Would stay again.

We would like to thank you for your feedback. The Motel was built in the 1970s but that does not mean that it cannot be clean and comfortable for our guests this is something we put a lot of effort into and its good to know that it is noticed. Thanks again

Booked online and was pleasantly surprised; the Inn exceeded our expectations. Super clean and very well cared for. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the room was tastefully furnished. And we enjoyed a complimentary hot chocolate from the coffee/tea station and a bottle of cold water each. Delightfully warm and helpful hosts too.

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
