This motel is aged and tired looking. The floors of our room were not vacuumed. Dirt and sand underfoot. We had 4 people in our room. There were only 3 cups no teaspoons. Freezer in fridge did not freeze. No bulb in light above bed. Doona on one bed was stained. No batteries or back in TV remote. Bbq plate dirty. Manager was not polite or overly helpful. Pool was good. Great to have laundry facilities available free.

Hi Narelle Watts, We are sorry to read the words you have written as we feel they are NOT an accurate reflection of your stay. We do recall you on the first day arriving at 9a.m. to check in, when check in time begins from 2p.m. but we happily still arranged for you to check in. We only just took over the day before you arrived, so unfortunately this was not enough time for us to check every single room, but when you did bring up the fact there were only 3 cups, not 4, we immediately gave you what was required. In regards to the remote, once again, we only just took over but we also IMMEDIATELY rectified this for you as well. In regards to the BBQ, you used it straight after another guest did so there was not time for us to realise the previous guests did not clean it to your satisfaction. In saying all this, we believe we were very polite and very helpful to you and your 3 friends. Also, the laundry is not free but you decided not to pay . Maybe you were a bit perturbed when you tried to book 3 more nights on the last night and tried to force us to give you a family room for only $85.00, and we declined, this may be the true reason why you wrote an adverse review. Notwithstanding this, we are pleased you enjoyed our fabulous pool and slide and wish you all the best. KInd regards Billabong Team

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. All comments and feedback are appreciated to make sure that guests are receiving the service they deserve. It is unfortunate about the room smelling like smoke as this is a non-smoking motel, however if you can provide more details as to room number, dates of stay etc we can look into the smoking issue for you. Kindest regards,

I had a smart TV in my room allowing me to use netflix and YouTube. The wifi was good. The room i was in was clean and spacious. There was a 2 seater sofa which was comfy. Shower was great. Pool was a great temperature too.
