We stayed at the Matador Motor Inn for 3 nights and thought it was excellent. The hosts were welcoming and amazingly helpful in every way. Our room was spotless, lovely comfortable bed and fresh linen. Facilities were great, everything catered for. It was very handy to have laundry facilities too. Location is good for shops and restaurants and there is...

Stayed at the Matador Motor Inn on the way to the Gold Coast from Albury and on the way home also. It is great value and the hosts are very obliging and helpful. Would highly recommend if you are staying in Coffs Harbour. Close to the Services Club and Hotel and also Restaurants.

It was good to see you again on your return trip from the Gold Coast and we appreciate you spending the time to write this review.

Lady on reception is lovely and goes out of her way to be welcoming. Breaks my heart to give a poor review given her efforts but aside from her, it's the truth. We were initially me in the car park by a rather rude man telling us what we can and can't do when we were clearly in a stressful...

This review needs to be clarified The rather rude man referred to was me and I was not rude I simply explained that they could not take three parking spots with their 4x4 and the oversized trailer as this would leave two other guests without parking we have 17 parking spots and 17 rooms and fully booked. The bathrooms have...

The Matador was a pleasant stop on the drive from Sydney to Mount Tamborine. It was easy to find, close to the highway & restaurants. A little bit of traffic noise not noticed by me but by my partner. There was undercover parking. It was clean, tidy, comfortable & came with a friendly greeting.

This is a nice motel just off the Pacific Highway. Very neat and clean rooms and excellent hosts. Had free fast wifi which was good. Not too far from the city centre and a short drive to the sea front.

We arrived into Coffs Harbour in the afternoon of New Year's Day and everything was closed. We were forced to eat Maccas for lunch (eek) and then face the prospect of starving until the next day lol.

Great service, quiet location (except for compression braking and that's the council's fault). Comfy beds and nice shower. We really appreciated the dinner recommendations especially on the public holiday. I would recommend to anyone.

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
