On a recent road trip from Brisbane to Cairns and back, we stayed in four different motels in four different towns. The Billabong Lodge Motel in Townsville was by far the best of the lot. The owner greeted us and was extremely friendly and very helpful, suggesting food options within a short distance of the motel. The motel grounds and... More

We stayed here on our way up the coast and stopped in again on our way back. The beds are really comfortable and shower is awesome too. The owner is really friendly and showed us to the room. If we are ever back in Townsville we will definitely stay again

From the moment I spoke to the friendly owner over the phone I knew our stay at the Billabong was going to be a memorable one. I was not mistaken. We had two separate overnight stays at the Billabong which we enjoyed very much. Our lovely refurnished large room was well decorated with a King Bed which was the most... More

Myself and family of 6 usually travel to Billabong Lodge for a fun filled Holiday every year. The rooms I stayed in had a Queen sized bed, two single beds and a bunk bed. It was also fitted with a kitchenette and a new bathroom. There is a pool with a slide going into it that the children love. There... More

We stopped at the Billabong Lodge Motel just for the night with a family of five. The room was nice, the beds comfortable and it was overall good value for money. Graeme provided some nice suggestions for the morning to have a look at Townsville. Definitely a recommendation and would stay there again. Thank you!

Graeme provided wonderful, friendly service for our group of 19 people staying at the Billabong. Everybody enjoyed their stay and really appreciated how Graeme made them feel so welcome and looked after. Also great rooms and great value.

We only stayed one night but the gentleman in the office was absolutely lovely. The kids went straight to the pool and we're being a bit rowdy from being in the car all day. The man from the office came out and reassured me it was a family place so the kids were fine to play and have fun. That... More

Welcomed to Townsville by such a friendly host. The room was chilled and there was milk in the fridge. The room was VERY clean and felt like home, with a spacious king bed and gorgeous artwork and cushions. The bathroom was newly renovated and everything was clean and tidy. A very nice room and very well priced for what you... More
