Booked this place to enjoy a lazy weekend - had the spa suite as a treat. Lovely large room, massive bath to chill out in too while enjoying a glass of wine. Good parking in the courtyard and very helpful owners who gave us recommendations for places to eat. Right in the high street just a couple of minutes from... More

I'm required to travel all over the state for work, arriving in town late & leaving first thing in the morning. On this trip I chose to stay at the Heritage Inn primarily because of its excellent location, but also because its rooms seemed large & comfortable & free wifi. I paid $140 for my room, which seems more than... More

Stayed two night. Room was spotless. Although not standard a microwave was supplied free for my baby son. Staff were very helpful. Great location. Will stay again. Lovely cafe on the same block as well as the RSL. Hairdresser, gym, supermarket and chemist within a five minute walk and two minute walk to the river.

Stayed one night for a stop over, no prior booking. Staff were lovely and very obliging. We had a huge very clean room in the back block which was excellent. Would highly recommend the cooked breakfast also.

Spotless Stayed here several times and never disappointed its immaculate and comfortable at a good rate per night. Situated in the centre of Ballina you won't need the car and opposite the RSL club where you can sit on the water and grab a quick inexpensive meal if you want. Definitely the most helpful staff I have ever found even... More

We stayed here on our way back to Sydney. It's a quiet conveniently located motel for an overnight stay. The rooms may be a bit dated and the basin is in a strange position but the room was spacious clean and comfortable. The managers were very friendly and even offered to store my husbands surf boards overnight in their garage.... More

I stayed at the Ballina Heritage Inn for 3 nights recently to attend a conference at the RSL. Top marks for friendliness, cleanliness, value and location. Not only directly opposite the RSL for the conference through the day, but also made it easy to walk over for dinner in the evening. Close to many other dining and shopping options as... More

Lovely location , close to the waterfront ,and our room was very spacious. Very clean and well maintained. There was a little noise from the Road and some kids running on the upstairs balcony, but it settled down. Handy to lots of lovely shops and restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff.
