Stayed here for work this week. Booked as was cheap and cheap it was. Photos make place look half decent but wow, could really do with a freshen up. Very basic furniture and as for the TV, was smaller than a computer monitor. Internet was free but a voucher only allowed 30min then would stop. Back to reception for another... More

I stay at this hotel about 4 times a year, I have never felt the need to look elsewhere, for the price you get a clean room with all expected features. The biggest draw card for me is it's location and the staff are never put out by me turning up later than expected, It has a 'family run business'... More

We learnt a excellent lesson with the choice of this motel. We followed the a pamphlet picked up at a wild life park which advertised motels in Wollongong. We were in the area looking at the sights on a weekend before moving on. We drove to the first motel which has no vacancy, we then rang the next two in... More

Perfectly convenient if you just need a stopover in Wollongong as the bed and bathroom are clean and comfortable enough and there is plenty of parking space. Worth knowing that it is a way out from the centre of town and that breakfast does not appear to be available though.

Great location in the centre of wollongong, very friendly and great sevice. As we were in town for a birthday we found our room to be clean and tidy with a queen size bed and balcony just what we needed for a overnight stay. Close to shops, pubs and a westfield only a 10 min drive. We would definitely stay... More

My friends and I stay here for the Santa claws pub crawl around Wollongong. The staff were welcoming and very helpful at 3am when a few lost their keys to the room. The rooms we're what we expected from a 3 star hotel and very clean!

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
