Perfect for a on overnight dash to Bundaberg for business. No frills, but made up for in friendliness of hosts. The location made the choice easy and the price was right. I wasn't expecting luxury, but it was clean and the milk for tea was fresh, not long-life - always a bonus.

We had a family function in the CBD and booked Matilda because it was walking distance to the venue and a good price. We were not disappointed as it was clean and welcoming. It's actually the first place we have stayed ( This includes 5 star resorts) that gave us a little bottle of actual milk on our arrival and...

Thank you for your feedback. I give out "real" milk as I my self dislike the 'cardboard' or 'plastic' milk. I do get a lot of positive comments regarding this so it has been worth the change. Kind regards Fiona

We stayed three nights at the Matilda Motel in Bundaberg earlier this month, at the end of our first leg of our drive around Australia before heading home for a couple of weeks and then returning to this point to continue on.
