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 Yes, the decor is outdated and rooms are in need of an upgrade, but for $99 for a double room, we got a comfortable, clean room with a cooked full breakfast right on our requested time.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

It's been a long time since the last visit and again we very happy with the room and the friendly staff. The room is comfortable and plenty of space. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was okay but the service was a bit slow. Overall we are happy to stay again and recommend to all.

Stayed here last Friday and scored a great deal. The new Management/owners are very enthusiastic and even arranged an earlier than advertised cooked breakfast to get us on our way early. As mentioned elsewhere here it is a bit dated but the rooms were spotless, the a/c was on when we arrived to the warm the room, plenty of tea... More

We stayed here 2 years ago, and stayed again a few days go on the way north. Good off street parking, clean, and friendly welcome from the 'new management' who it seems took over 11 weeks ago. This is an older style motel (60's?) but its clean, functional, and tidy. Breakfast deleivered to our room - huge and tasty! Good... More

We stayed here on our way north and back home to the south. Very comfortable unit that included our little dog.Dogs catered for very well with outdoor fenced run and bowls etc in room. Fab restaurant so we didn't have to go back into town. Definitely a great spot to stopover when traveling through!!

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
