We recently stayed in a family room for 1 night (2 adults, 3 kids). I was surprised how modern & tastefully the room was decorated and also impressed with the large bathroom and well equipped kitchenette (great to have your own plates and cutlery for eating take away late on arrival!). We ordered a hot breaky which didn't disappoint. We... More

We were passing through so booked this hotel as a stopover. Check in was brisk, but no friendly chat or information given, the key was handed over and that was it. The rooms are clean and have everything you need for a stopover whilst on your travels. The breakfast was extra and delivered to your room. You have to order... More

Great little Motel, really clean and modern. I travel 2-3 times per month and stay in large International hotels and some are not as fresh as this little gem in Ballina. For the time we were there, it was a really good little spot.

We went there late November (23rd) and stayed a night in a group of 8 people. Both our rooms (Family room & interconnecting Queen room) were spacious, clean and very very VERY comfortable. Parking was a breeze since all car parks are directly in front of the rooms. I highly recommend it; the place is absolutely amazing and affordable as... More

Was surprised to find how well appointed the motel room was, semi-self contained with microwave, fridge, plates and cutlery. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. 10 min walk to the bowling club or 15 min to town centre.

Travelling thru and decided to try based on previous reviews. Both of us tired and trying to get over colds/nasties and wanted somewhere very comfortable. Reception was very helpful, even though I could hardly talk, room#3 was just what the DR ordered. Best shower in a motel we have had since travelling 13 days from Perth. Bed was comfortable, room...

We have stayed at Ballina Palms 4 times now, and always look forward to our visits. It is like a calm oasis. The rooms are spotless, with lots of added extra's. The owner works extremely hard ensure everything is first class. It is our favourite place to stay. Don't think about, just book it!

Further from the river than we wanted but a very good motel. Welcomed by very efficient and helpful staff. We had a lovely room which was comfortable and well equipped. Worth paying the little bit extra.

Having stayed at several places in Ballina and Byron Bay this is now our number one choice because it is just great value for money. The rooms are clean and fresh with all the added extra's that others at the same price simply do not provide. Comfortable beds, spacious amenities, excellent kitchen and fridge.

I booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. This is an older motel where rooms have been tastefully refurbished. Outdoor area is tired and the gardens require maintenance. The room and bathroom were very clean and everything needed is provided. Unfortunately the four posted timber bed was very hard and uncomfortable and very noisy! Lounge chairs were very comfortable!... More
