Rang last minute and booked the family room. Queen bed and 3 singles in the one room with kitchenette and ensuite. Very clean and tidy. Although motel is located on busy road, noise was not an issue. Manager was very friendly and helpful and there was room to park with the trailer. Dinner was available from the nearby Chinese restaurant,... More

The Billabong is ideally located on the highway into Townsville and has easy and safe parking. I can recall staying here over 30 years ago when my kids were much younger and competing in inter-city sporting carnivals. Whilst the facility is aged by today's standards, the double room was in excellent condition and it was easy to see that maintenance... More

We stayed in a family room, 3 Adults and 2 Children. The room was very large and very well kept. The kids loved the pool with a slide. The owner operator was so friendly could not do enough for us. Their WiFi was of top quality, had no problems.

A great motel to stay at that is safe, secure, clean and comfortable. Excellent customer service by the owner operator who takes pride in ensuring guests are welcome and happy. I checked into this motel in the evening after leaving a different motel due to not feeling comfortable with the security, cleanliness and clientele. Nothing was too much trouble for... More

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
