Very pleasantly surprised to see the excellent sized room we were allocated when booking into the Ballina. Very well furnished for either a business or leisure traveller. We found the bed very comfortable & my wife was impressed with the linen quality. The room was very quiet & there was no noise from a nearby pub or the adjacent road.... More

Setting up for a road trip I used TA to help sort out an option for Napier. Since this was a BW I figured it had to have a minimal level of comfort, but I was wrong. This place was extremely nice, comfortable, and a role model for roadside motels. The room was large with excellent linens, comfortable bed, tele... More

We just returned from our New Zealand trip and are delighted with our stay at the Ballina. Cozy, sweet and inviting, it provided a true haven to rest. We were shown to our room so we could inspect it and given fresh milk for our coffee...a New Zealand tradition. The room was spacious with a beautiful balcony and wonderful comfy... More

Business-like hotel reception. Very big and clean room with en-suite bathroom and kitchenette. Nice balcony with a remote seasight, where we had our breakfast. Location near livelyTaradale city. Bit expensive. Tip : as Napier City is about 10 km away, take Bus 12. Guido and Marlène, Gent, Belgium

Lynda greeted us with friendliness, smiles and care! She gave us an upgraded room with no charge. Showed us to the suite, brought us extra coffee, hot chocolate and fresh milk for our morning coffee.
