“clean affordable and great service”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Had a one night stay here on the 7th, service was excellent from beginning to end, even went above and beyond to help out with an unexpected arrival, rooms clean, bed (even pillows!!) comfy, amenities old but in good working order, GREAT location, a really good place to stay if your after budget accommodation.

Room Tip: The waterfront rooms are defiantly worth the extra if you there for more than an overnighter, beauti...

This motel is no 5 star resort, but it has had a change of management, and is now old and tired but very clean. If you pay an extra $10 you can get an ocean view room which is on the upper level, if you don't want to pay the extra, you just have to cross the road and you are on the beachfront.

If you want good basic accommodation at a reasonable price in a very nice location (opposite the beach), this should be your pick. The new manager was very helpful and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Have to mention the restaurant attached to the motel - Billy's on the Bay - excellent food and service. Would definitely stay again.

Understanding the place is a little old.
The new managers have brought it back to a great stay.
What more could you ask for directly over the road from the beach.
Beautiful views of Moreton bay and Moreton island while sitting on the balcony having your morning cup of coffee. .
Great I will be back again

Room Tip: Ask for beach views and you wont regret it

We agree with Eric K. We had a really lovely stay at the Waltzing Matilda and would highly recommend it. It was the perfect location, the managers couldn't have been nicer and sitting on our room's verandah looking out to sea was lovely. For a night away at a great spot right over the road from the beach you couldn't find better value. I believe there was a change in management recently, so perhaps this has something to do with past negative reviews and conversely our great experience, I can only say that we found it to be a great spot and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Higher rooms facing the beach have a lovely outlook

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Waltzing Matilda Motel and highly recommend staying there. I really don't understand all the bad reviews. Peter, the manager, was really helpful and our room was clean and fine. Nice location too, across the road from the beach. Highly recommended !!

Room leaked when it rained, carpet was stained and smelled of mould. T.V wasn't working and there was mould in the shower. If it wasn't for the fact that we had been traveling for 9 hours, we would have gone elsewhere. 12 hrs after leaving the room we can still smell it (the room), in our clothes. Absolutely disgusting. Will be contacting the Health Dept tomorrow. BEWARE!!!

Room Tip: BEWARE!!!! Do not pay for a room!!
