I stayed here recently overnight travelling from Victoria to Brisbane with my elderly mother and elderly dog. The service was excellent- I had trouble with WiFi so they came to my room, then set up another hotspot closer to my room. This was the only place we stayed with a restaurant- and the food was fabulous, bistro style but well... More

It was a reasonable room at a reasonable cost. The room was clean though dated. The bed could have done with a pillow top as you could feel the springs. The food was eatable but was not that great. It was very quiet though which was good

On the outskirts on Coonabarabran. Room was definitely adequate, long bench to place all your stuff. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff very friendly. Rates reasonable. Close to Siding Spring and Warrumbungles NP.

Our room at this motor inn was clean & the owners friendly & most thoughtful (they are dog owners themselves) however the price was a wee bit high compared to other accommodation available in Coonabarabran that was also pet friendly. We travelled through peak Xmas season & there was still plenty of accom available with other motels.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Matthew Flinders while travelling. The price is reasonable and the rooms are what you would expect for a motel that was in it's hay day during the 80's-90's. I will stay again and recommend to travellers that you are paying that price for a basic room, if you want upmarket... More

I'm not too sure why this motel was checkers when the other motels in town did not seem to be busy at all! Maybe it was because you can book at one of the discount online sites, but not sure.. I was there because I was travelling with my dog and pet friendly accommodation is limited. The room was large... More

Booked in for an overnight stay with our dog, during our trip home to QLD. Room was more than adequate for an overnight stopover, Restaurant was busy, which is always a good sign and ordered one of their boutique pizzas. Absolutely delicious to the last bite. All staff from reception to restaurant were friendly. Overall great place to park up... More

Not Buckingham Palace but very quiet, comfortable and clean with friendly staff. We were really happy with the location just on the edge of town with a nice spattering of gum trees around the pool. Restaurant on site was convenient.
