The room is spacious & clean with good amenities. The location is walking distance from the Convention Centre, Old Dubbo Jail and the town centre. Exactly what we wanted for our conference accommodation.

I received the best...

Always find the Matilda a friendly and welcoming motel. Some rooms and bathrooms are tiny but comfortable and well maintained. The location is good, as are the meals - you can get lambs fry for breakfast. It's my go to motel in Dubbo.

This is indeed a gem in the Central West. Second time I have stayed and can't fault it. What is most impressive is that it is quiet! no road noise no noisy neighbours. Great location and fantastic staff. Restaurant on site and as a Coeliac they can cater for my needs. Will be back!
