Stayed 2 nights in September. Very friendly manager/owner and we were pleased to be upgraded at no charge to a larger room (unit 14). As widely travelled people we are used to sometimes putting up with rooms that need refurbishment but this not only needed a total make-over but was the dirtiest room we've ever experienced - cobwebs all over the windows (couldn't bear to have the curtains open to have to look at them), shocking mould in the bathroom, roaches in the loo and what looked like blood stains on the blanket. We have never complained before but sorry guys - you will not be getting our business again. We were genuinely glad to leave.

When looking at the website of this motel in Winton the rooms look very good. Imagine my surprise when I opened the door to number 11 and found this ! It was badly in need of TLC. No wardrobe just two coat hangers as you can see.The shower was not very spicy so I refrained from using it. There was a kettle,toaster and microwave but not sure of the safety so did not use them. The bed was comfortable and appeared clean ! My complaint is the misleading blurb on their website. Be aware of room 11 it’s not a bit like their photos. I would have walked away but accomodation is scarce at the moment. It cost me $125 for the dubious pleasure of staying in this appalling room.

It was nice stay in Matilda hotel. The team members were very nice. I left my charger by mistake in the room and surprisingly they sent by post to me. It was very generous of them. I would recommend. Absolute worth stay.

When booking I did not expect too much as is advertised as a 3 star more like a 2 star. I did not think actual double beds existed anymore! Tiny double bed, the room was big enough and had a big rattler(Aircon) in the window. This did cool the room down after the 40 degrees outside after some time. Rooms not good if you have mobility issues as there are 3 steps to get into the room and you need to step into the shower recess as well. There was a sign to alert you of the sulphur smell! Staining in the shower etc. Easy walk to main street. There was other accommodation at the facility but they were not in use due to issues? The beds need to be upgraded to make it passable and the aircon put on for guests prior to arrival for the room to cool down as it does take some time.

Because of Covid, some family and myself traveled out west for two weeks. Very enjoyable except for Winton. My sister an I thought we'd spend some money at the hairdresser only to be told she would only do locals. We were disappointed and went to do some washing at the motel who advertised customer washing facilities. When we got there the owner said, "You'll have to wait until I'm finished and that will be about lunch time". Rude. We feel that the residents of Winton live off the fact that people want to see Dinosaurs, however, we as a family wouldn't recommend going there. Extremely disappointed.
