There were 4 couples that stayed at the Motel. The service was just great and the rooms were everything we wanted. Very clean and couldn't get over how spacious they were. Would go back there anytime. We had 1 bedroom, a 2 bedroom and a studio apartment and all were so good.

Booked just the one night at O'Reilly's to visit Hobbiton and spot on. Very friendly and clean accommodation. Closer to town and Hobbiton and for the bill go my party of 3 adults and 1 infant. Worth noting the local Countdown supermarkets closes at 8pm weekdays in case you arrive late. Would go back

We had a funeral in Matamata so stayed at this place for the night, the staff were super friendly and the motel was spotlessly clean. They had nice crisp sheets which is something you don't normally get at such places. The location was perfect us and it was very reasonably priced for what you got. Our room was the closest...

Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Close to Hobbiton. Laundry services are on site. It's handy not having to go to a laundromat. The staff was on hand if you needed anything or had any questions. We enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here for just one night and was pleasantly surprised at how neat and tidy the room was. We had a studio room with kitchenette, had all the extras like a coffee plunger, milk, bickies, plenty of towels etc. The only thing that could be faulted is that the room had no bath 😓 however I would definitely stay here...

I stayed here in August, and I had an upstairs room. The room was large with a very big bathroom, a good sized kitchen area with the usual supplies, and a very comfortable bed. The motel appears to be an older style which is reflected in the style, presentation, and slightly dated look, and some wear was visible. The room...

We opted this motel as it's cheap and near to the Hobbiton Movie Set. We just had to drive for about 12-15 minutes in order to arrived at the Shire. The bathroom of the motel was huge for a room for 2 persons and the room is well equipped with kitchen utensils. We were there for the winter, and the...

If I could give a negative 5, I would. Four of my friends and I booked this hotel for our trip to Hobbiton. 12 minutes before getting to the hotel, we got into a car accident, and all 5 of us were taken by ambulance to the ER, requiring us to stay the entire night. I had contacted the motel...

This hotel was ok but had lots of flies and no air-con! So very hot that it made sleeping uncomfortable. Rooms were clean enough but very basic. It was good enough for a place to sleep but no luxury here. Staff were very helpful!
