There was a little bit of road noise from trucks so request a room further away from the road. Food was good and plenty of it

Been travelling to qld from vic all my life, have stayed at the matthew flinders around 8 times since the late 80s. Has changed hands over the years, but the rooms and grounds are very much the same. Kids loved the pool, which was in terrific shape for an area affected by drought. Rooms were great, had a family room for my family and my parents were upgraded on arrival to a nicer double room. Restaurant wasnt opened, but room order for pizzas were great value. Sadly the motel had few others staying but owner was amazingly friendly and talkative. Wish more people took the time to visit and stay at these great motels in regional australia.

The pizzas served on pizza night were delicious. Room service delivered them after a reminder phonecall, 1hour after ordered. The airconditioner fan was faulty leaving the room extremely uncomfortable on a 43 degree day. After having a shower, i stepped onto the white bathmat leaving brown footprints on it from the dirty shower tiles.

We chose this Motor Inn because it had a restaurant and we were tired from our trip. We were informed on site that it was shut down due to lack of patrons. On the plus side we were shown a menu for pizza so we could have something. We totally understand the economics regarding the restaurant however, it should have been changed on the Wotif website.
