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

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
