The Matador is convenient being on the fringe of Sale town centre, entry on a side street of the main thoroughfare through town and therefore close to almost anything that you may need including a number of different types of food & beverage venues.
This motel was built in the 70’s, and has an interesting history, just ask Craig, the proud manager, it is worth asking. You will find Craig always has a smile and a great helpful attitude.
The job of modernising the rooms has been done very well, whilst retaining the obvious character of the rather impressive building.
Very comfortable king size bed, a couple of chairs and a table, as well as a 40” TV, a microwave, and a well finished bathroom with a nice shower are some of the room’s upgraded mods that have been done.
A rather inclusive continental breakfast is included in the large light and airy dining room. Tip:- the mini blueberry muffins and yogurt and nuts in a small glass are a treat.
Definitely Highly Recommended
An older building currently being renovated. Rooms were very tastefully renovated and the location and service was excellent. Would stay again, in fact we did, twice in the same week. Once on the way up to NSW and again on the way back.
Nice motel well situated on the corner - lovely bed but I think the doors on the rooms could do with some work, not the easiest to open and very noisey. Breakfast was nice with a good variety thanks again
Good location across the road from the Port of Sale. Warm welcome and comfortable, clean, ground floor room with up-to-date fittings.
And excellent breakfast included. A very enjoyable stay. A very minor quibble was no electric blanket to warm cold sheets on a winter's night.
Pretty good. Basic motel, but bed, shower good. Breakfast is simple cereal,toast and fruit, but I lile it a simple "sleep, breakfast and travel" affair. Onsite parking good. Nice and quiet. Recommended.
Built in the 70s this Motel has had many names. What do you do with a 70s Spanish themed Motel in 2016. The new owners have done one of the best mash up of old and new I have seen. Repainting original fixtures then mixing in new furnishings, beds, side tables, lamps and fully rebuilt bathrooms. My room was 33, renovated King bed. Comfortable, stylish and large. The vaulted ceiling makes the room feel enormous. Complementary continental breakfast includes coffee machine, selection of teas and juice, cereals, fruit, cold meats, Pastries and a selection of bread and conserves. Cross the road and a short walk takes you to the shopping precinct. Very quiet rooms and very clean. All in all great Motel with attentive friendly staff.
I was recommended by a friend and I was not disappointed. Very clean overall and comfortable beds. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great central location- definitely would stay here in the future. Booked directly and got a cheaper price. Winning all round.
I stayed in a ground floor corporate suite for 3 nights whilst I was in town for work. Lovely renovated room with a comfy, full sized king bed with well thought out decor and furnishings and colour scheme. Ceiling to floor block-out curtains to allow for sleep-ins after working late. The shower had a lovely oversize head, and the water was hot and plentiful. There was a kettle, toaster microwave and cutlery & crockery provided, and much appreciated.The few things that annoyed me with this room were the bathroom door not closing properly, I used some folded cardboard to keep it shut, and the bathroom exhaust fan was super loud. I could also hear the neighbors talking through the walls, luckily they weren't excessively noisy.
Room very comfortable. Breakfast was included and although not extensive was perfectly adequate. Owners friendly and helpful. Lighting in our room was poor and there was a faulty cistern winch the owners promised to fix.
Value for money accommodation. The rooms are comfortable with plenty of space and equipped with everything you need. The staff are very friendly and a free continental style breakfast and cereal is provided. The Matador is situated in the middle of town so is conveniently located near the high street shops.
Currently the hotel rooms are being renovated. Renovated rooms are $143 and non-renovated rooms $123. Nothing wrong with the non-ronovated rooms, the beds are new just new coat of paint hasn’t been applied yet.
We were upgraded to a King room which was fantastic. Bed was super comfortable. Room was modern, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Ditto the bathroom. Breakfast was great - a generous buffet with proper coffee. This is one of the nicest motels I have stayed in and was very reasonably priced.
I stayed for a business trip and booked into one for the newly renovated rooms. The room was large, bed comfy and linen crisp and good quality. The bathroom was also big and well renovated. The room (21) was quiet and the air conditioner worked a treat keeping the room nice and cool during the hot two days I was there. Very good location in town. Breakfast was included but I didn't have any so can not comment there. Service was excellent. Great place to stay.
We stayed in a wonderfully refurbished king bedroom on the first (upper) floor. The room has been refurbished with quality fittings and furnishings. The bed was extremely comfortable with crisp clean cotton sheets and the thermostatic shower was wonderful to use with high water pressure. The continental breakfast was a perfect start to the day, all supported by very happy and and very helpful staff. A perfect place to stay. Very highly recommended.
Excellent stay here. The newly refurbished room was to a high standard. The room was very big and equipped with everything you could need. Bed was comfy and the shower really good. Location good as well. Cheery staff on reception who were very helpful. Could not fault it.
Great Hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious. We booked direct and received a great continental breakfast. It's close to the shops and has a lovely pool to cool off in. The staff are very friendly and catered to all our needs.
We weren't expecting much when we booked but the reviews were good... and turns out they were accurate!
The place is clean, friendly service, extremely good attention to detail (they keep whiskey glasses in the fridge!), and the fact that the whole place has a consistent theme (of a Matador of course) and matching interior and exterior really helped make the place feel well put together.
I will definitely be staying here again!
Also the hot water ran beautifully, even when multiple people were using it (this is definitely something I look out for).
It was really good. The weather was cold when we were there the air con worked quickly to warm the room. Shower was great. The motel is close to town, a nice walk for coffee or shopping. The free continental breakfast was perfect for us.
The room was very clean. There is nothing I can suggest for them to improve.
Well what a delight. We had our elderley mother with us and they upgraded us to a family suite with no extra charge. Chris and staff were charming and accommodating. It has been renovated sympathetically to its era which we loved. Rooms were a joy, super clean and comfortable, and breakfast in the morning catered to all tastes. We would recommend over and over again.
It was wonderful for a small town motel. Beautiful room, free bottle of water and chocolates in my room, modern bathroom and set to a comfortable temperature before I arrived. Continental breakfast was quite nice, but not very accommodating of dietary requirements. Staff were friendly and made excellent restaurant tips. Will happily return if I'm ever in Sale again.
1st time staying here. Our room is on the ground floor. The doors were open making the room feel quite fresh on arrival. There was also a sign letting us know who had cleaned the room.
On returning later that night, the room smelt a bit musty when we walked in. The blaconnette looks over a school. Unfortunately, there are only blackout curtains, no lace, to stop people from looking in so these had to be pulled to give us privacy.
The bed was awesome & we slept like we would at home.
The complimentary continental breakfast was very nice.
Would stay here again when we cone to Sale.
A clean and comfortable room, recently renovated, I’m particularly impressed with the bathroom! Staff were lovely. A decent breakfast included in the rate. We were passing through and more than comfortable for what we needed. Recommended for good value. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Decent, honest, friendly.
