Of course the room wasn't exquisite but that's to be expected of a budget option. The room my partner and I stayed in was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The owners were both lovely and extremely helpful. Amazing value for money! :)

The Ritz it's not but absolutely fine for a road trip pit stop. Nothing flash but comfortable, clean and reasonably we'll maintained with all the essentials including fridge, tea making facilities and a bonus pack of biscuits! Road noise was a little load on occasion but nothing to concerning and lady at checkin was very helpful.

While myself and my husband are typically it too fussy, I wasn't overly impressed with our stay. The staff were very friendly and accommodating which was great. However, I am appalled that we were charged $180 per night for a room with a queen and a single bed. For starters, the room is a mismatch of features with a lick... More

Had a single room, really small, no air con, slow wifi and code only usable for one hour. for a 100 you would expect more - considering you could get the same level of comfort at a hostel. The couple that owned the motel were really lovely, but the room is too expensive for what you get

This Motel is very basic,the price is way too much for the accommodation. The street noise is noticeable and the location is not ideal. On a good point, it was clean, bed wasn't great, but good enough. Won't run back, only stayed here as all else was booked.

Tidy, no fuss room and book in process. A last minute drive in booking over Easter weekend. Lovely Thai restaurant connected. Plumbing was a bit noisy at times but at a budget price in peak season its tolerable.

I was greeted by the very friendly operators of the Flinders Motel Melanie & Frank who ensured my stay was to the highest standard. Prior to my arrival they did their best to find a suitable room for me as they were almost booked out and reserved the room for me until I arrived there which was just before they... More

The staff was helpful and check in process is easy. Although the building is old, the room was pretty cosy. Photo in Agoda was not updated. The bed cover is more to modern type. The only minus point is Wifi is limited to 3hrs per stay with a maximum of 300MB only.

Really enjoyed our stay at Flinders Motel. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was spotless. A home from home. The fully equipped central kitchen was fabulous. Perfectly situated 4 blocks from the shopping centre and the beach. Will be back with my family. The couple at the reception made us feel so welcome
