My partner and I stayed as an overnight stop on our trip home from Canberra, trying to avoid the flooding in Sydney and Brisbane. Matthew Flinders was the perfect spot, clean and comfortable, we also managed to arrive on Pizza Night so dinner taken care of!

Half way sanctuary ”

I drove solo from Melbourne. I arrived in a rain storm. Allison was helping a guy from Tassie when I pulled up. She demonstrated patience and grace helping my fellow traveller and was friendly, welcoming and helpful when I checked in. Thankyou. Not the first time I have stayed here. 19 years ago my son left his fav teddy bear here. They posted it back to us understanding how important Polo was to Matty. Have stayed here ever since.
