We were happy with all aspects of the room, except for the rather noisy "window rattler" type air conditioner. The room had been revamped as well as...

Graeme takes pride in how the place looks along with great customer service. Great work on the upgrades Graeme, the rooms look great and the bed was very comfy. I think this was our third stay here over a period of years and we will be back.

Here for a few days for a netball carnival. Walking distance to the courts, which was the main reason for booking here. Great Motel though. Comfy beds and reasonably quiet. Good location, near shops and restaurants. Would stay here again.

Manager was very friendly and helpful and there was room to park with the trailer. Dinner was available from the nearby Chinese restaurant,...

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...

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...

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...
