Unfortunately our car was broken into (which is no fault of the motel). The owner Murray could not have been more helpful. He helped us contact police and even cleaned up the glass and patched the window so we could continue driving. Really wonderful service which was so appreciated. The motel room was really comfortable. The kids loved the pool...

Stayed for one night passing through. The room was very small but also very clean. Bathroom and decor dated and there was a very strong lemon toilet fragrance smell. The bars on the window were a bit disconcerting however I presume necessary. Peace of mind to have CCTV cameras on the vehicles and entry to the motel. Staff were efficient...

We stayed at this Dubbo motel for 1 night on Dec 31, 2016. We were in room #209, which was an “executive” king bed cabin room. There was adequate safe parking directly outside the cabin. The clean room had a fridge, microwave, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, Wi-Fi and very comfortable bed, but no safe. All items in the room worked correctly...

This place was great, a common stopping point for long road trips it seems. Staff were friendly, helpful and professional. We loved how they make it clear that they sell sleep, and are willing to help make your stay quiet and peaceful. Beds were comfortable, room was clean and had everything we needed.

The Matilda motel is centrally located in Dubbo close to shops and clubs. The motel is set back from Darling Street and is very quiet. The motel is well priced and appointed. We were fortunate to receive a free upgrade.

The Matilda Motor Inn is clean, quiet and air conditioned, which is wonderful, particularly for escaping the hot weather. The pool looks refreshing. Breakfast is good; tasty with good sized pprtions. Positioned in a quiet street with other eating options close by. Friendly efficient staff. Late night arrivals facilitated without a problem.
