This is a motor inn, not a luxury hotel, so my expectations were not high. We had a family room which was perfectly suited for our family of three. There was a small kitchenette with refrigerator and kettle. The air conditioner worked well. We booked online, and the management called to confirm the stay (that doesn't happen often).

We arrived later in the day and booked this hotel on line.like most hotels we thought that 3 stars was reasonable as we had stayed in hotels with that rating before. The room was very small with no room to place suitcases ,there was no vanity other than an old corner basin so we had to put things on the... More

We've just had another weekend in Wollongong (10-11 May 2014) and I think this has been my 5th or 6th stay at the Flinders Motel. It's a budget motel so it's not flashy but it's well priced, beds are comfy enough, its clean and the showers are hot - which is basically all you need for a night or two.... More

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
