Reviewed 7 September 2018

I recently drove with a friend from Kuranda to Townsville. A normally 5-hour trip became much longer when we (along with many others) were stopped for nearly 3 hours due to a bush-fire north of Townsville. Having rung the motel to let them know we would be late, we arrived at around 7.30pm, extremely tired. Reception was open and we were made very welcome.
It was such a relief to get into my room: a couple of armchairs, large screen TV, a very comfortable bed, roomy en-suite and good shower, and a small kitchenette with toaster and microwave, which enabled me to prepare some eats that I had brought with me; it felt like arriving home after a long day.
Although an older building, it is very well-maintained and impeccably clean. Moderately priced; easily accessed by car; quiet, even though on a main road; close to the city centre and other features of this city. Although we stayed only one night, I would certainly choose Billabong Lodge for future trips to Townsville.

We have now stayed here twice travelling through Townsville. Great price, owners very friendly. Clean tidy room with comfortable beds and good price for a family. We would happily stay again. Small pool slide that kids really enjoyed.

We had our first stay at Billabong Lodge recently after staying elsewhere in Townsville on our visits over the past five years. We wished that we had discovered Billabong from the outset. Although the decor is a bit dated, the rooms are clean, well appointed and serviced daily. The bed was very comfortable and the shower flow a delight.

Graeme and his wife are great hosts - welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We recommend this motel and will be back for our next visit.

The receptionist were up for a chat and very friendly.
The room was very comfortable and I slept well

Great stay as always. Always the most welcoming hosts. Great beds! My room was ready for my evening arrival, with light and air-conditioner on. Too old for the waterside now... but the pool is cool.
Thank you. See you next visit.
