“A Budget Motel - Nothing More”
Reviewed 30 June 2011

The Flinders Motel is a budget motel, nothing more, nothing less. It's greatest plus is the Jasmine Rice II (Thai) restaurant out front, where 2 of us had a fabulous 3 course meal including wine for $70. The bed was comfortable, the room was basic and clean, the shower was hot, and the motel was an easy walk to the centre of town (and, if you want it, to restaurants and local clubs). Negatives - It's on a main road and near the railway line, so it's noisy, and (incredibly) the air conditioner was labelled 'cooing only' and in mid winter no control to the air conditioner was provided or was missing - so either the room became stuffy or you open the windows and put up with the noise. And I'll have to talk to my mate Kamahl, next time I see him, about truth in advertising. This is a Golden Chain motel, but they didn't provide 'one of those little things', the fresh milk!! (UHT milk was provided.) (To explain to overseas readers, Kamahl is a well-known Australian entertainer and he has been promoting Golden Chain motels on TV recently).

Reviewed 22 September 2010

We stayed one night at this motel recently and were pleasantly surprised. At a very affordable rate we got a very simple, but clean room with Air Conditioning, Fridge, and TV. WiFi is available for a fee and there is a good Thai restaurant on site, which I believe also does breakfast and lunch.

If you want to leave your car at home, you can walk to North Beach in about 10 minutes. North Wollongong Station is less than 10 minutes away. The city would probably be only 20 minutes max.

Overall, we had a good nights sleep, and felt we had a very good value room. Definitely not fancy but we would stay here again.
