    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Property is half a block from the very quaint and diverse retail district on the main boulevard thru town. Several interesting shops and nice restaurants on the main road. Rooms are above the restaurant; so a bit of noise on some nights. We stayed on a Friday with music in the lounge and weren't disturbed by the activity. Lots of helpful staff around. We didn't use the restaurant; found a place we liked while exploring the retail district; and left before breakfast started at a late 8:00 (at least for us as travelers). Room a bit Spartan, but comfortable and clean. No air conditioning, but even tho warm days, a nice breeze and cooler at night - so not a big issue. Only about 15 minutes to Hobbiton, which is why we were overnighting in Matamata. A good overnight location for visiting that attraction.
