Had a fantastic stay in Ballina, would go back there again. The whole trip was fantastic and the hosts made it an incredible experience for us. We would recommend this motel 100 per cent. Absolutely wonderful.

Basic older style motel but very clean and comfortable. Stayed in ground floor room and could not hear any noise from adjoining room. Free wi-fi was a bonus. A few minutes walk from RSL club. Very friendly owner.

Stayed here for a night on my way to the Gold Coast. It was easy to find, close to the river, an easy walk into town, and although its on a main road i wasnt bothered by any road noise. The owners were lovely, the room was clean and comfortable and having a microwave was a bonus. The only negative... More

Needed a place to overnight between Port Macquarie and home. Easy to find, clean and friendly. Close to Restaurants, but some were closed Monday nights, so a 5 minute walk to Dominos. Free wi-fi was OK.

Very clean and tidy, comfortable. Within walking distance to most facilities. Grounds well maintained. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Some traffic noise but not too much of a concern. Will stay again

Clean. Spare pillows, blankets, no noisy neighbours during our weekend stay, close to shops. Only downer; had to carry a lil tin jug of milk from reception to our room which was upstairs for our coffee, the stairs had some milk on my way up. Little milk boxes would've been ideal. This isn't a real complain anyhow. Isn't that what... More

We stayed overnight in a family room 2 adults and 3 children. The room was very clean, the bed linen pristine and the beds comfortable. The service was friendly and welcoming. Although no fancy frills, this motel was good value for money and perfect for an overnight stay on route to our final destination. Would book again.

Operators were only too happy to assist with what ever was required to ensure a happy and comfortable stay. Property is located close to the river and wwalking distance to most of the towns facilities.
