We just needed somewhere to shower and sleep for an overnight stay near Lennox Head. Accommodation in Ballina is half the price and only a short coastal drive away. I had requested a quiet room and was allocated No 17 which was the furtherest from reception. It was perfectly quiet and very clean and comfortable. It looked a little larger... More

Decided to travel to the north coast and found this place online. Well off the beaten track (the moved the pacific highway a year ago) but well worth a visit. Stayed two nights, the owner was very friendly and the rooms clean - a great value for price. Will stay agin when I a up this way.

We stayed here overnight on Christmas Day on our way north. The 2 bedroom unit was spotlessly clean and comfortable and I can highly recommend this motel. Air conditioning and fans worked well to cool down the unit. I will choose this motel in the future.

Not the largest of place, but definately cosy. But it met my purpose of a good clean bed for the night. The rooms down the back are smaller. This is a good clean place to stay, breakfast in the morning is basic but good as well. The owners are very accommodating and informative.

A nice quiet motel on the Western side of town. Plenty of parking and close to the tavern across the road which does good meals. Suited to short business stops. A few kilometers from town so no good if you want to walk there.

Just had three nights at the Fun N Sun Motel in Ballina. It was clean, comfortable and the perfect spot to stay while enjoying the Byron BluesFest. The owners were welcoming and very helpful. It was a very relaxed and pleasant stay.

We booked in here at the last minute and were able to get a room for 2 adults and 3 teenagers. It's an old motel but it was well looked after, clean and quiet. Also the perfect distance fro the highway for a stopover, close enough to allow quick entry and exit, far enough to be quiet.

A really friendly welcome, choice of rooms and its location made us decide to stop there. our room was clean with a view of the garden and patio area. There was even a mini-kitchen, so... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while driving up the coast and very much enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, the air con works great, there is undercover parking, the road is far enough away that noise isn't a problem, the pool area is nice, it's a short walk to supermarkets, bottle shops, and...
