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).
