Looking for affordable accommodation in Matamata? Colleen offers a really homely alternative to Motels in a comfy single room. Includes a simple breakfast. There is a short walk to Matamata from my place, 5 minutes at the most. We have some very nice restaurants in town. There are a number of lovely short walks through the town. Matamata is a dairy farming town but also known for thoroughbred horses, and of course The Home of the Hobbit and a short drive to Hobbiton Farmstays and Tours. The Matamata Tower museum is well worth having a look at lots of old farm machinery, an old jail house, church and post office etc.
