The room smelt like cat urine. The rest of the room was great.

Thank you Emma for your feedback. As you have stayed with us many times you know that we take our guest's opinions and wellbeing very seriously. As we discussed this morning I did stay thank you for letting us know and that I would do something about it right away. I am happy to tell you that the carpet has been cleaned as well as the beds have been steamed clean. We are not sure what the smell is from, but, it has been rectified. Thank you again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Matilda Motor Inn, Dubbo. Centrally located and quiet. Lovely and friendly staff. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Dining room well presented and the meals tasty and well priced. Our only tiny criticism regarding the restaurant was a lack of choice in alcoholic beverages. We will be back and we have no hesitation in recommending staying here when next visiting Dubbo. Thanks Annie and Michael.

Great location. Facilities are average to good. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was clean. Adequate onsite parking next to the room. Could improve on range of linen, cutlery provided. There was no daily cleaning, would have liked bathroom to be cleaned and room to be made up. Overall a pleasant stay with family.

Our room was not ready for our stay when we checked in. We waited an hour for an extra bed which they dumped in our room without making. Not enough towels in the room for the number of guests Staff not friendly or helpful or apologetic A very tired & old motel with dirty plates & glasses in the cupboards. Light in bathroom didn’t work. Broken chairs. Dangerous broken light switches. Unfortunately Dubbo was fully booked, so we couldn’t change our accommodation. Reviews obviously written by owner or motel staff. Pictures obviously from a loooong time ago. So disappointed.

So sorry you feel this way Simone We try our best to help out where we can. We can assure you that we do not write our own reviews and that most of our guests are quite satisfied and very happy with our services. It is a very busy time in Dubbo and we are doing the best we can to make everyone happy. We offered to make the bed and you assured us you make it your self as well as give extra towels. We are sorry for the way you feel and we take maintenance very seriously and fix everything as soon as notified.
