This place could be so different but it's run down and very old. Everything works, shower, VT etc....but it's all outdated. Went to have dinner at the restaurant it the guy taking orders was rude and would listen to me so I decided to go elsewhere. These people are the frontline and if you have dills working there you loose...

We chose this for overnight accommodation due to its proximity. It wasn't a luxurious room it was what we paid for a on a budget. We were only there for one night so no harm done. The towels, carpet and some other things can improve. Plus the toilet backed up. But it suited our needs and the adjacent hotel bistro...

Dirty, foul and disgusting. I opened the door and the stench hit me - the only reason I didn't turn around and demand my money back was because my entire family was staying there for a family 50th we were all attending nearby. I couldn't walk barefoot in the room - the carpet looked like a murder scene. I refused...

Unfortunately the Matthew Flinders is my local and there aren't really and other pubs around. On the plus side, there is a great play area for the kids which is the only reason we come (to get some respite as they play) However the food is always bad. I have had most things on the menu and everything disappoints. It...

Having to stay near Malvern for a funeral, we checked into Matthew Flinders Hotel/Motel. The sheets were clean, BUT, the carpets were filthy and stained. We couldn't walk on them barefoot. Our friends were in another room with the same dirty carpets. A lot of people obviously use this motel, why can't they clean/replace the carpets? Very tired rooms. Our...

Great bistro for all ages. Nice meals also. Well catered for young children with a fantastic playground and even a bowling alley! Lots of pool tables open over the weekend and the pokies are in a different area which was nice. We will be back.

From the online photos the rooms looked budget but OK. What a shock when we saw it in the flesh. We arrived after midnight and had no option to find other accommodation at that hour. Had booked 2 nights but stayed only one; it was dreadful. The room reeked of smoke. There was no bedcover, only a second sheet on...

I should have done better research before booking this 'hotel'. It does say 'Motel' on the side of the building but in all advertising & it's title of 'Hotel' suggests otherwise. The room was very tired. There were holes in the sheets & stains all over the blankets. The food at the hotel was very ordinary.I did not enjoy it...

I had just arrived in Aus, and needed a place to rest in on a Friday night close to Chadstone Mall. Plus points of the hotel; it is close to the mall (the largest in Australia!), and very convenient to the motorway. It is budget-priced. Cons; no hot water tap in the sink in the bathroom. The only tap in...

As we were unable to book any other accommodation in the area at short notice we settled for the Matthew Flinders. It seemed a bargain but the price reflects the standard with a bad impression with a dirty stairwell and stained carpets in the room. We stayed 2 nights as it was very convenient to access Melbourne by train (taking...
