We stayed one night at the Lake Matheson Motel as part of a road trip down the coast. The unit was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. The kitchenette area was a little small as it was a bit cramped to do any cooking but it was sufficient. The beds were comfortable. There is a handy carport right outside the door which was great for the day we left when it poured down. This meant you didn't get too wet packing the car.

Great place to stay just off SH6 - about 5 minutes walk from there. And only a couple of minutes from Betsy Jane restaurant (which is a must). Debbie was really friendly & we stayed in one of the renovated front studios. Clean & comfortable. The SmartTV with access to Netflix & more was a bonus. This was exceptional value for money & was good to break up a West Coast tour with two nights here. Close drive to Lake Matheson & a great walk.

Thank you so much for your fantastic hospitality Debbie. Our family appreciated the late arrival check-in and warm hospitality you gave us. Would highly recommend for a comfortable, warm, quiet, clean stay.

Modern rooms with large bed, clean, well stocked small kitchenette, well heated. Wonderful welcome when we stopped without a booking. Shower pressure was amazing. Betsey Jane was recommended just down the road for dinner, which was delicious.

I arrived and was warmly greeted and shown to my room.
Debbie and Rob the hosts have been busy and updated every room with 40 inch full smart tv's. Was great as raining so I could watch Netflix. Undercover parking was a real plus. The shower had great pressure and was super hot exactly what I needed after a long drive.
Well worth staying here as value for money and not on the main highway. Close to a new restaurant which served a great burger.
