About
Description
The Matador (previously the Hacienda Motel) is now under new ownership and currently being totally renovated. For the budget conscious we still have our yet to be renovated rooms which includes our economy More rooms, family rooms and classic twin rooms. For those looking for something modern & fresh be sure to try our fully renovated rooms which includes our Corporate, Deluxe King and Renovated Twin rooms. We have also just completed our new Studio Apartments. This 54 room property is just a 2 min walk to the center of town, Lake Gutheridge and a similar distance from the Port of Sale precinct which houses "The Wedge" Entertainment Centre, new Art Gallery, Library & Information Centre. Room rates are competitive and offer guests from 3 star (the older rooms) to 4 star (the refurbished standard) accommodation and all with free wifi, free parking and a complimentary continental breakfast per room.
