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

We stayed 2 nights in November and were well satisfied. The hosts, Graeme and Kathy were friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. The room was of a good size and well equipped, and above all pretty quiet and free from road noise. The covered parking slots were welcome given the heat although this did make... More

Upside: Beds were comfortable, large rooms with lounge, digital tv, the hotel itself is very old but they have done things to reburbish the rooms Downside: Poor water pressure, temperature hard to vary in shower no heater only aircon in room, poor selection of Austar channels. Overall not a bad place at all especially for a run of the mill... More
