Hogan is providing a very personal yet professional service. Clean, tidy and very modern furnished rooms, I loved the little lounge in the studio. Stayed there during a private trip. Travelling on my own I felt safe and secure upstairs. The Ballinor Motor Inn has now been added as a recommended place for our business travellers, too.

This time we were only staying one night but it's an ideal place to stay over night or for longer. On arrival it was wet and dark but Hogan had put on the heater in our room. There had been a slight misunderstanding re bed configuration and Hogan was so apologetic. Within minutes we had another room which was more... More

Stayed at this motor inn during the week, have been very wary of motor inns over the years due to terrible service and quality of accommodation. Could not have been happier with our choice here, had a loft room overlooking the main road but could not hear any traffic very soundproof. Would also like to note that the man that... More

We stayed overnight in one of the spa rooms. We were given a very efficient tour of the room and explanation of how to work the TV/Sky and spa bath, most likely the best welcome we have ever had at a motel. The spa bath was lovely. The room and bathroom were all very nice, clean and modern. Ours opened... More

Went to Hamilton for a wedding and stayed here for one night. Early check in was extremely helpful, service was excellent! Room exceeded our expectations, very nice, clean and private. Spa bath was a bonus. Would definitely stay here again :-)

The apartment was clean and fairly well equipped. The spa bath was lovely. However we had a corner plot which was very dark and the outside area was small and uninviting. Staff were very friendly and full of local information.

Stayed here for 2 nights in February. Room was lovely and clean with all that we required for our stay. The little private area outside the back door was great as we could leave door open for fresh air when we were there. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would certainly stay again if the need arises. Need a car to... More

We love to stay at Ballinor. They always remember us and do the little extra things for us that we need even before we get there. Its super clean, warm and has everything one could want. Well done Hogan and the team we look forward to our next visit

Excellent rooms, close to town. Walk to restaurants. Hogan is an excellent and helpful host. All the facilities you'd expect in the room are there. Comfortable beds and pillows and the free WiFi works great. Breakfast delivered to the room but only two blocks from a major supermarket, you can buy your groceries and cook in the room. I have...
