Couldn't be more impressed with this motel. Friendly service, great dinner and breakfast, clean and the most comfy bed of our trip with quality linen. Also plenty of room for a portacot. This far exceeded our expectations!

An excellent stopover point after visiting Sidings Springs. Was great to have restaurant on site too, meant we didn't have to go into town and could just relax. Everything was basic, clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. Exactly what we were looking for.

Thank you Glen for your kind review. We do try to have our restaurant open as much as possible but due to Xmas public holidays we had difficulty securing enough staff to function at full capacity that day. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to your next visit. Safe Travels :)

After a long hot drive this motel was good value for the money. Nothing special but nothing wrong either. There is a swimming pool located in a large central courtyard which is pretty characterless which was nice for a cool off. The staff were friendly and provided us with fresh milk to make a cuppa in our room. The room...

The staff were friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome when we opened the door to our room and found the air conditioner had been turned on and the room nice and cool. We found the pillows too hard and the shower screen wouldn't close. The pizza's by the pool was a great end to the day. Heaps of parking...

The best motel restaurant we've encountered -- anywhere! Not surprisingly, the owner is a chef. The menu is expansive - but not expensive. It would outdo many so-called "fine dining" establishments . . and match the other claimants to culinary kingship or queenship. We would go out of our way to revisit the Matthew Flinders and stay a very comfortable...

This motel was a good stopping point when driving from Brisbane to Canberra. The staff at reception and the restaurant were friendly, the motel is quiet and has nice trees and an outdoor seating area. The room was very clean, functional and reasonably spacious. The restaurant makes a yummy take-away pizza, handy when you arrive close to 8pm, as we...
