An overnight stay with a family of 3 kids. We were given a very clean, comfortable room with a queen, 2 singles and a trundle. Lovely walk along the river after check-in, just 50 M away. Very friendly service and well placed in East Ballina, close to beaches,

I'm surprised a motel with 40 units can stay open with only 3 units occupied? Very clean friendly service but a noisy airconditioner made it a long night. In the old days with the highway running right past the door, this would have been a very busy, albeit noisy abode. Food at the tavern up the road was excellent and... More

A lot of thought has gone into all the little bits of attention to detail to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The manager (owner) is just lovely too. She puts in tremendous effort to make sure Ballina Palms is the best it can be each and every day and it shows. Rooms are spacious, clean and pleasantly stylish.... More

Could not believe how beautiful this motel was it is a real surprise. Tucked away in the back streets the decor and attention to detail is a credit to the owners and they cook the most delicious breaky. We will be back ++

My room at this motel and was quite spacious. It contained a kitchenette with microwave, plates cutlery etc. Bathroom was very tiny. The room was immaculately clean. The downside at this location is there is no restaurant or bar on site. There is also quite a bit of road noise as this is one of the main outlets from Ballina... More

Really clean and well appointed rooms in a nice location just outside of the Main Street of town. Very close to river and parks and only about 5 mins drive to Shelly Beach. Would definitely stay here if ever passing through this region again. Highly recommended.
