A very pleasant room that was impeccably clean and well furnished with modern fit-out. The hotel next door takes 1 minute to stroll to and they provide very nice meals and an atmosphere that is welcoming to families and business travellers alike. The reception process was pleasant, prepared in advance and very well organised. No significant road noise was present... More

As we decided to head to Byron Bay for Easter weekend (a week before, not even knowing there was the blues festival), we were blessed finding this motel which is very conveniently located. The owners are really friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and had all the amenities to make our stay perfect. Unfortunately the bed was... More

This hotel is well located for a one night stop over. We paid $145 for the night during peak season which I thought was a bit steep but it provided what we needed, a room and bed. Check in was friendly and efficient and the service was friendly. Our room was large enough for the two of us for the... More

We have friends living in Wollongbar and decided to stay here one night so we could catch up. The motel and it's grounds were most attractive and impressive. Not busy this night as we were the only room in use! Our room was a family room with 1Q and 2S beds. The room was quite spacious and had a small... More

We recently had 1 night at the Arabella Garden Inn. It is a great little motel. Very nicely appointed with many additional little extras that you do not usually get in a small motel. Lovely gardens, very well maintained and lovely rooms and bathroom. In a quiet location not far from the main highway, but very well positioned not to... More

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay while visiting the Northern Rivers region. Beautiful rooms and surrounds and friendly service. A perfect base to visit Ballina and the beaches and the colourful local markets. The attention to detail in the rooms was excellent.

A perfectly situated motel with beautiful gardens and spotless rooms with lovely private views. Excellent accommodation at reasonable prices with comfortable big beds and great friendly service as required. The location is wonderfully close to popular sites and beaches if touring around by car. Great pub next door with yummy food and live music!

We based ourselves here for several days and explored the Northern Rivers. Rooms were spacious and immaculately clean. All rooms had pleasant tropical garden view. The gardens needed some maintenance but a lot of work was being undertaken while we were there. Alstonville is a pleasant walk along what I would describe as a country path - very nice. A... More

What wonderful people. Nothing a problem. Rooms are well appointed with everything you need. Lovely garden patio outside the room. Breakfast more than ample and reasonably priced. Definitely will be back
