Stayed here in late November 2013 travelling with my sister to Canberra. Did not book ahead - were lucky to find this accommodation as there was a concert in Wollongong that night and most motels were booked out. Flinders Motel is an older style motel - but clean and tidy. We had a room with twin beds which resembled a... More

The main problems with this hotel are it's age, building construction and location. The rooms are small, the walls allow noise to travel through and the traffic noise from the busy road is constant. But it was reasonably appointed and relatively clean and the management were friendly. I thought the price was a but high for what you get, but... More

I found the managment very friendly and helpfull, room was clean and tidy. I was suprised that i didnt hear any traffic noise and the motel is a short walk to restaurants and clubs, the best thing as there is a thai restaurant on site. Thankyou for a enjoyable stay. From cooma nsw

Myself and my wife stayed at the Flinders Motel on a recent weekend away to Wollongong. The rooms were an OK size but unmaintained and dirty. The shower hardly worked and the sheets were stained, gross. The photos on the website are professionally taken and adjusted, and not a real reflection of what they are actually like. We found the...

This place is situated on a busy main road between used car lots and the like. The entire place is very old, as are the jail cell-like rooms and amenities. Some room numbers are completely unmarked, forcing the guest to ask management where their room is even located after fruitlessly wandering around the premises. What is that all about!? The... More

We stayed here n a busy Saturday night and were in town to attend a function. We found the motel neat, clean and comfortable which is all that you want really for our type of visit. We were initially concerned with some noise from other customers when we arrived (loud talkers everywhere), however at night when it counted, it was... More

When you book a "single" do you expect to get a working man's quarters?? . I didn't and neither did my husband. I stayed at the Flinders as my husband was away and I needed to be out of our home in North Wollongong for a night while tiling was completed. I was very upset with the starkness and coldness...

I hold very little credence in remarks made by guests when for some unknown reason they are not prepared to approach management during their stay to make mention of there concerns. The room allocated to you was the same room (Room 15) that was praised in this blog on 23rd January 2012. "This only proves that one size does not... More

I found this place clean, comfortable and in a great location - Everywhere in Wollongong is just minutes away. I stayed in a single air-conditioned room. Everything in the room (carpet, microwave, desk, air con etc) looked newish. The bathroom was basic but clean. The staff where helpful and acknowledged my request of having a quiet room and I must...

First impression was of location - this motel is in the middle of half a dozen caryards, beside a very busy road. The motel is not coach friendly as we saw a group having to load and unload down the driveway, beside the road. As we entered the room and had a look around we saw a sticky stain from... More

We are unable to validate most of your complaints about this property. It is dissappointing that you did not contact the reception or talk to your group co-ordinator regarding your concerns while you were on site as we feel that we could have overcome most of them, with the exception of the hot water service that lost power due to...

The Flinders Motel is a budget motel, nothing more, nothing less. It's greatest plus is the Jasmine Rice II (Thai) restaurant out front, where 2 of us had a fabulous 3 course meal including wine for $70. The bed was comfortable, the room was basic and clean, the shower was hot, and the motel was an easy walk to the... More
