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 Yes, the decor is outdated and rooms are in need of an upgrade, but for $99 for a double room, we got a comfortable, clean room with a cooked full breakfast right on our requested time.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

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!!
