Mathew Flinders Motor Inn ... Southern end of Coona ... 1980's time warp complete with magnificent [BIG] showers, pet friendly rooms, affordable bottles of wine and ENTHUSIASTIC new owners. Pizzas and sit down dining on site ... no hassles finding that evening meal ... New owners indicated that they are about to upgrade ten rooms as stage one ... I... More

The motel is not new and could be updated a bit but is clean and comfortable and has everything you need. And for us who travel with our little four legged friend it has pet friendly rooms. The owners were only new but were very friendly and helpful. There is also a restaurant on site if you don't wish to... More

We stayed, new owners very helpful and eager to please. As with other reviews the motel is in need of some upgrades. New split systems would be good, rather than the old small box ones. These small systems struggle a bit to warm the rooms in winter. One other minor disappointment is the small LCD TV, we only stayed for... More

Booked online,turned up and got shown the room. the toilet didn't flush,so they moved us to another room. This one was OK, near the restaurant from which we got some great pizza and drinks for a later night feast. It is really worn but the managers are trying. The pet rooms would be an attraction.Far enough off the road to... More

While the accommodation was old and basic, it was comfy. We got a meal late which was appreciated after a long day on the road. Breakfast was good too. The room was terribly cold and once we found the electric blanket, it helped once it was warm and we were in the bed. Money needs to be spent on this... More

This was a great stopover for me and my two little dogs. They have specific rooms allocated for pets. The room was very clean and comfortable and pets were very well catered for with even a secure dog off leash area. I ordered poached eggs on toast for breakfast and they were absolutely divine. They were cooked to perfection and... More

The stay here was very good as usual because of its position off the Newell Highway. This highway is a very popular route with the semi trailer and road trains which beetle along during the night. as any one would expect there would be al lot of noise bu NO we didn't hear any at all. As my husband is... More

Second night on our flying trip to Queensland, long driving day we were glad to get out of the car. Bonus was the onsite restaurant and we were there as soon as the doors opened. Bit disappointed when star son asked for tomato sauce for his nuggets and they had none?? Room was clean and comfortable and basic, we left... More
