We booked and paid over the telephone prior to leaving home. However, due to the flooding we weren't sure what time we would actually arrive. Not a problem at all, this lady was willing to do what ever it took to ensure our room was all ready and waiting. Such a relief after driving such a distance in one afternoon.... More

Room is dated but well kept up. Amenities are basic. The grounds are well kept up. The only staff member that we met was excellent. There is an enclosed dog run where a dog can be off-lead. There is a larger play area, but the highway is a hazard. There is a hose, bucket, and sponge where you can wash... More

Needing a stopover driving from Melbourne to Brisbane we booked in to the Mathew Flinders. After a 12hr drive we checked late to a very friendly staff who were wating for some latecomers delayed by floods. The accommodation was excellent basic motel but clean and comfortable. Due to the 9pm arrival the restaurant was closed. An excellent fenced dog run... More

We were very impressed with this quiet motel and its on-site licenced restaurant. The bedding and towels were A1, and the room well maintained. It is a reasonably roomy traditional motel with parking at the door. Everything was well priced, and this motel is to be recommended to travellers seeking value.

After a long drive and another the next day, all we wanted was a clean comfortable stay. We booked on line in the afternoon to arrive at 7. There was no fuss , exactly what we expected for a mid range country motel. We are pleasantly surprised by the well presented and cooked Italian style dinner ; no need to... More

This was my second stop at the Matthew Flinders this year, and I am happy to recommend it. They are a basic motel, but they add the little extras that add up. The beds are comfortable, the shower has good water pressure, the towels are large, there are hand washers, and a shower cap. I had a pizza brought to... More

We stayed here with our little dog, and it was fabulous. Comfortable, clean room. Decent (but possibly overpriced) food from the restaurant (delivered to our room). We thought the food servings were quite tiny.

After reading reviews we chose to stay at this hotel.. the checkin process was easy and we were greated by a friendly man.. We had traveled 9.5 hrs on a Friday and wanted to grab some lunch (it was just after 2pm).. the hotel didn't serve lunch... More

This is the third time we have stayed and will keep on staying there when we can. Once again the room was clean, the staff very accomodating, the food was great and we had a good rest. The dog is more than welcome. Well done gentlemen, once again.

The room was very tired and in need of upgrade. Bed was ok. The furniture was all bits and pieces. The carpet was absolutely disgusting - very warn and covered with large grease spots. The curtains basically did not give privacy. We will definitely not be staying here in this overpriced, over rated accommodation again again
