Enjoyable stay
Enjoyable stay, building looks a bit old from outside however our room had been renovated and room was very comfortable and clean, we had everything we needed. All the staff we came across from check in, breakfast and check out were all lovely and helpful. Breakfast is a great inclusion. More than enough food and variety to choose from. Cannot fault our stay at The Matador.

8/10 Very Good

Convenient motel in Sale
The location was ideal as it's walking distance to restaurants, lakes and port of Sale. The room was comfortable with amenities for coffee/tea. The breakfast was basic and you can take food back to your room as the dining space was small and can be very busy. The staff at breakfast could be more polite in managing the space and accommodating guests. I felt harrased as I kept being asked by one staff member of how many people were with me while I was eating (even though I was only there for under 15 mins) because she had another group coming. For some reason, this staff member put more importance in the coming guests than the guests that were there.
