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.

One of the best motels we found in NZ. Lots of space, clean, in very good condition, full kitchen facilities and a guest laundry. A warm welcome, close to town and across the road and rail line from a large New World. We had 2 great nights there. Would definitely stay again.

Nice clean motel, close to town, friendly owners and staff. Our room was lovely apart from 1 blown light bulb and the pillows were uncomfortable. It is off the main road into matamata but couldnt really hear the traffic.

We've stayed in literally ALL of the motels in Matamata. This is easily the best, in terms of both comfort and cleanliness. The owners are great. The location is fine- a ten minute walk from town if you're really slow!

Matamata Central Motel is the best place that we have every stayed at, it was modern, spotless and quite, everything that you need to fell at home. As we arrived before midday by bus we were so grateful to have been able to book in and leave our suitcases which was a blessing. We would recommend this Motel to everyone...
