Currently being refurbished as looking a little tired, We had a nice room overlooking the river. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food was good and again the restaurant and balcony overlook the river. You could watch the Salmon coming up the river and the fishermen fly fishing. A plesant one night stay

This hotel is not only the most central hotel in Ballina, it has the best view over the famous Ridge pool, beautiful rooms, and the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. And to top it all the prices are far more reasonable than many competing inferior Hotels. The food in the beautiful dining room overlooking the river is second to... More

Stayed here Mon to Fri(4 nights) family 2 adults and 3 children in 4th floor "apartment"! Positives were the location, the friendly staff and that's it. Negatives are many -accommodation ie bedrooms were dirty, plenty of dust on the furniture, curtains half hanging on windows to be honest they were like something from the charity shop. No blinds on the... More

Does not get any better - Coming here for 5 / 6 years and my 4th visit this year.

The positives - well-located building (nice view of river), friendly staff, reasonably nice lobby. However the rooms and corridors are fairly tired and the area is quite noisy (especially if you have to open a window due to the lack of air-conditioning). The single lift (though spacious) seems insufficient and there is no easy access to stairs. I agree with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a golf trip. Check-in was efficient. We were in a room in the second floor that was extremely difficult to locate. The layout of the building is like a maze and I would be very concerned about whether or not the place could ever be evacuated in the event of an emergency. The... More
