Condusive environment to stay, with 2 spacious rooms (one upstair and another downstair). 2 TVs - one upstair and another in the hall. Wifi is great. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful place with potted lemon plants outside the rooms.

Clean and comfortable, decor slightly dated. No hot water in the morning for showers and the staff / management didn't really care, no sorry and no compensation, not a good look for the price they charge for a average room

We were in a two room apartment which was nice to get a bit of space. Basic kitchen but everything you need. Internet was a little slow and did drop out every now and then but otherwise can not really fault other than the occasional truck 😎 Countdown is in the centre of town but looks a bit scratchy from...

We had booked through a booking website which told us 2 days before our stay while we were flying for 28 hours that the motel had cancelled our booking, which we did 1 months before. They did not give us any reason. We got a refund and the booking website gave us another hotel, but our vacation started with stress...

There were 4 couples that stayed at the Motel. The service was just great and the rooms were everything we wanted. Very clean and couldn't get over how spacious they were. Would go back there anytime. We had 1 bedroom, a 2 bedroom and a studio apartment and all were so good.

Booked just the one night at O'Reilly's to visit Hobbiton and spot on. Very friendly and clean accommodation. Closer to town and Hobbiton and for the bill go my party of 3 adults and 1 infant. Worth noting the local Countdown supermarkets closes at 8pm weekdays in case you arrive late. Would go back

We had a funeral in Matamata so stayed at this place for the night, the staff were super friendly and the motel was spotlessly clean. They had nice crisp sheets which is something you don't normally get at such places. The location was perfect us and it was very reasonably priced for what you got. Our room was the closest...

Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Close to Hobbiton. Laundry services are on site. It's handy not having to go to a laundromat. The staff was on hand if you needed anything or had any questions. We enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here for just one night and was pleasantly surprised at how neat and tidy the room was. We had a studio room with kitchenette, had all the extras like a coffee plunger, milk, bickies, plenty of towels etc. The only thing that could be faulted is that the room had no bath 😓 however I would definitely stay here...

I stayed here in August, and I had an upstairs room. The room was large with a very big bathroom, a good sized kitchen area with the usual supplies, and a very comfortable bed. The motel appears to be an older style which is reflected in the style, presentation, and slightly dated look, and some wear was visible. The room...
