This is better than your standard motel. It is newer and clean. It's a family run and operated business - they were nice and helpful.

We were extremely happy with our stay at this motel. The rooms were beautifully furnished and absolutely spotless, spacious and very comfortable.

We only stayed for one night as we were visiting the Hobbiton movie set the next day. Our rooms were really clean and had everything we needed. It had a good size open plan lounge, dining area and well equipped kitchen with a full bathroom (separate bath and shower) and 2 bedrooms, twin and double. It is close to Matamata...
