I stayed in this motel for one night with my 5yr old while we visited family in Ballina. I was very impressed! It is such a lovely mix of old style Aussie motel and fabulous style. The rooms still have the exposed brick like a 70's place but have been fitted out amazingly with functional and stylish kitchenettes. Modern furniture... More

The owner was friendly and engaging and the room was wonderful. Everything was clean and fresh and the bed was very comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Motel and would stay again when next I pass that way. :)

We only stayed for one night but we have stayed here previously for several nights, the staff are always friendly and accommodating, the rooms are spotless and comfortable - there is a guest laundry and an area where u can sit and relax outside with friends - this is a really well priced modern motel

Stayed for only one night on trip between Sydney and Brisbane , ticked all of the boxes and was very affordable. Would have liked to stay longer but had limited time. Check in was very friendly, easy parking, overall a pleasant stay.

Only a one night stay but would have stayed longer. Beautifully refurbished with all mod cons, very clean and in a quiet location. Very comfortable beds and a quality modern ensuite. A generous breakfast to start the next day. Thoroughly recommended

We stayed overnight here. The staff were helpful especially as we were arriving late. Room was small but clean and well presented. The only issue we had was we were traveling in a 4wd that was raised a little and had our recovery equipment on the roof racks. Unfortunately the entrance to the motel parking was through a LOW awning... More

This is a single storey motel on a quiet location which has undergone a refurb to take on a Bali theme. The rooms are clean and the layout of the rooms plus additions like window shutters make it a place I'd be very happy to take my wife. Well done on such good value and aesthetics.

Upon arrival you are greeted by a refreshing outdoor Balinese setting, which is undercover near the lovely tropical pool. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the beds were comfortable. The kids loved searching for the white cat; Bianca. The rooms had a choice of fresh air or air conditioning. With some of the occasional road noise, late arrivals or... More

My husband and I stayed at this beautifully refurbished motel for one night during a road trip from Brisbane. I think the owner has utilized the services of an interior decorator when doing the refurbishment as our room looked like something out of the pages of Home Beautiful or similar! However, the room didn't just look great but was very... More
