As other reviewers have stated, this motel is 1970 brick outside but well refurbished inside. Highlights: - great shower with hot water and excellent water pressure - very nice toiletries - clearly a caring ethos as the toiletries and biscuits supplied support Australian charities - crisp, white linen on comfy beds - plunger coffee and very well equipped kitchenette -...

This place was excellent! We chose out of the phone book looking for a run of the mill motor inn around the $100 a night mark. Excellent and friendly hosts, nice relaxing setting and a pretty good location. Much more modern perks then we were expecting. Great sized rooms, good shower, kitchenette had heaps of extras like a sandwich toaster.... More

Unpretentious in appearance from the street but this small motel is very well equipped and most comfortable. Extra fittings such as proper reading lights by the bed, a magnifying mirror in the bathroom make an overnight stay very enjoyable. The decor was pleasing and the Balinese setting by the pool was charming especially at nighttime. As another reviewer said '... More

I booked this motel on Tripadvisor reviews. Was not disappointed. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is nothing exceptional from the outside. But inside is a delight for a tired traveller. Deserves its four star rating. Nothing is overlooked, quality linen and towels, tasteful decoration, plenty of cutlery, crockery, toaster, frypan, microwave etc etc - all make for a comfy... More

Stayed here on our way back from the Sunshine Coast/Brisbane. With a slightly meandering drive coming home via Byron bay this was the perfect distance for us to stop. I picked this motel based on price and tripadvisor ratings. I think I paid about $110 a night. Certainly nothing to be disappointed with here. From the outside the motel doesn't... More

The outside is deceptive, although looking like a normal country Motel, the rooms are a complete surprise.Large beautifully furnished with many little touches you often do not get in a 5 star hotel. We will be using this Motel again and would recommend it as an ideal stopover.

I travel for work (450+ motels in 4 years) and this would be the best motel I've stayed in. Not sure how old the property is (my first stay was in 2009) but the room is like new. The furnishings, fittings and appliances ALL look brand new. The rooms are not just your regular motel rooms - they are embellished... More

This is a great modern and clean motel. The kitchenette is a bonus and rooms have been tastefully renovated. This is our place to stay when we visit Ballina, close to the river and great value for the money.
