We had a great stay in the Matador Inn, the bed was huge and very comfortable, all the amenities were well appointed and the advice from the owner about where to have dinner was a great asset to new visitors like us.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. Steve was welcoming and helpful providing information on local eats as well as basic information regarding room facilities. Travelling alone, I felt good about choosing Matador Coffs Harbour and would definitely stay again.

This place was inviting as soon as I entered. I was escorted to my room (which was clean and well presented) and shown where to find what I needed. As a cleaner and manager, service and cleanliness get A+ from me. Thank you for a very pleasant night.

We were delighted with the service. Taking us to our room to explain the various features of the room was not expected but welcomed. Continental breakfast was included in the price and bringing it to the room just after we arrived determined when we wanted to eat and leave the next morning. We'll be back.

We decided to stay in a motel for the final night of our camping holiday. We phoned late in the day and we were pleasantly surprised by the friendly, 'no problems' response to our accommodation requirements. What a lovely surprise to see that the room was just as promised - very clean and tidy and fresh smelling. And the bed...

Magnificent location handy to everything in Coffs. Steve and Sue were exceptionally kind, going out of their way to make my stay pleasant . The room was very comfortable with excellent facilities, bottles of water and more milk than any other motel I've been in recently, and that's quite a few. A huge bed and spotless floors and benches.

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
