After a long day pulled Ito the flinders and was greeted with a friendly staff and they were very helpful. My dog was able to have and area to run off the leash without leaving the grounds. The food was also great, great place to stop on any road trip with a pet.

Stopped in here driving down from Brisbane on the way to Dubbo and Canberra. Family room is clean but dated. Everything appeared to work. Duty manager admitted he had been slack as everything in the room was turned off. Didn't eat at the restaurant (get in quick as it is only open from 5.30 to 8.30pm) as we had a... More

I was travelling with my wife and we had an overnight stop at the Matthew Flinders on the outskirts of Coonabarabran. Reception staff at the motel are very friendly and helpful and made booking in easy. Our room was spacious, clean, tidy and reasonably well appointed although the bedhead lights could do with a little attention as one was a... More

Booked this motel on line as it was a pet friendly motel with rooms you have your dog in. They are very basic for $120 a night. They where very clean. Made one big mistake and had diner in the resturant. The worst meal I have ever had. I really mean the worst. I order a reef and beef medium... More

We stayed here on our way through from Adelaide to the Gold Coast and were pleasantly surprised at how clean and accomodating these units were. We paid $105 so we could have foxtel which in the end didn't work but we got a free cooked breakfast delivered to our room at a time of our choice the next morning. Comfy... More

A good basic motel, very clean, comfortable and affordable. Bathroom could do with an upgrade, especially the step into the shower but it was all very clean which is more important to us. All the staff were helpful and friendly, whether they were front of house or delivering our meal. There was a good atmosphere the night we were there... More

Last couple of times we stayed at Acacia motel which was good but pricey. Spent the night at Matthew Flinders and found it as good but a more affordable price. Room clean, service friendly, bed comfortable and the little things like infusion tea bags, comfy dressing gowns made our stay. Thoughtful and appreciated service

I recently stayed at Matthew Flinders with a coach group.We had stayed here with the previous owners who were very friendly but no one could possibly rival Michael and Mark for the fantastic welcome we received. This amazing service and friendliness continued during dinner and breakfast both of which were delicious. The rooms are older style but spotlessly clean and... More

After reading the reviews here, we were totally unsurprised by what we found. Yes, the decor is outdated and rooms are in need of an upgrade, but for $99 for a double room, we got a comfortable, clean room with a cooked full breakfast right on our requested time. Towels were large and fluffy. This motel is a short drive... More
