We recently stayed overnight at this motel on our way back to Cairns from Airlie beach. We are a family of 5 and were looking for somewhere with 1 queen and 3 single beds (not bunk beds or a sofa bed). The room was quite spacious and the queen and 3 single beds were all comfortable. The room was spotlessly... More

We arrived around 7.30 pm on a Sunday night and we were welcomed even though this was family time for the motel owner. We accepted a double unit with facilities and we were presented with a beautifully clean unit with a good variety of kitchen facilities albeit with only two sets of cutlery so keep the washing up to date!...

Came to Townsville for the V8's. This motel was not far away. Short taxi & bus ride to the track and back. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast served daily and most nights there are meals delivered to your room. Clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. The only disappointing thing I found was the inconsiderateness of other guests staying... More

I regularly stay at the Billabong Lodge on business trips and find the rooms to be comfortable and spotlessly clean . The location is central and convenient to amenities . Graeme and his staff and very friendly and helpful . Would happily recommend

Bedding was clean but the room needs updating. The bathroom had ants - lots of them. Lots of construction workers staying there so from about 6 am you get woken from their trucks leaving. The night before they were making lots of noise watching footsie match

After our first of many long days' drives, this motel proved surprising good after trying to find it early in the gathering dusk of a Townsville evening. Our King bedded room was comfortable and well appointed, and good value. We were recommended one of the ubiquitous clubs further back into the town, but after what seemed quite a long walk,... More

Stayed one night, the unit was clean, quiet and comfortable well renovated unit with congenial host. Plenty of covered parking just a little cramped for a large car. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

We stayed in the Billabong after travelling from Rockhampton by car. It was very easy to find and very reasonably priced. It even offers discounted rates on their website. We found Graham, the owner, to be very accommodating and showed us a couple of rooms to see which ones we preferred. Some were renovated and some not, the renovated rooms... More
