Stayed in the family room for one night over the weekend and had a great time in Flinders. There is nothing spectacular about the rooms which reminds you of an 80es motel, but it was nice and clean and the beds were good. Good and friendly service and a good offer on the room and we'll probably come back.

We just booked the motel last minute for an overnight stay over summer so we wouldn't have to travel back to Melbourne with our two boys. It was comfortable, we had a queen bed and a single for Master 5, but had to bring a doona, pillow and little fold out bed for Master 3 as they didn't offer rollaway... More

To escape the hustle and bustle of Cup weekend in Melbourne, my friends and I booked this motel due to the 'rave' reviews it had received online. We were bitterly disappointed within five minutes of our arrival. Firstly, our triple share room was dark and its decor was still stuck in the early 80s. Due to bad weather, a few... More

We booked three nights to attend a family celebration. While the location was good, the room quiet and the reception friendly, the motel itself was a real disappointment. Our room was dark and dusty. The one picture on the exposed brick was mouldy both inside on the glass and on the back. We had to take it off the wall... More

Great hotel in heart of Flinders, friendly and spacious. Dated 70s decor though well maintained, coutyard for downstairs rooms a bonus. We used the family room this time which was great but a second TV upstairs would have been better. Grounds are gorgeous and everything is walkable. Kids loved pool and spa.

A perfect little city escape to the beach/country. Flinders cove motel the service was impeccable on check in. It is close to the lookout and pier and across the road from the local hotel and shopping. The rooms are large and spacious and well kept.

I really regretted staying in Flinders and booking this hotel the moment I arrived at the hotel site. The exterior looks rundown, especially with the posh looking Flinders Hotel opposite. The room was old and dusty looking with broken furnitures. Even though there were plates, cups and cutleries in the cupboard, it didn't feel clean enough to be used. The... More

Booked this place very last minute for a weekend over the phone, having stayed here quite a few years ago. The manager was most helpful over the phone, and when we arrived was just as accommodating and even discounted our rate further as we paid cash. The motel itself is very basic. The last time we stayed here it was... More

Had a recent stay at the Flinders Cove Motor Inn, not the first time. I was in a group who were based in Flinders to enjoy some Mornington Peninsula golf courses. Our host Terry went out of his way to make sure our group was looked after and couldn't do enough for us. His efforts were certainly above and beyond!... More

Yes, the bare brick walls and other examples of 1980s decoration in this motel were discouraging, particularly given a room rate that was hardly cheap. But there were plenty of positives about the Flinders Cove as well. A huge positive is that the beds were excellent: wonderfully comfortable mattresses and quality bed linen. As well as this, the parking was... More
