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.

Hi, we recently stayed 2 nights in this Motel, From the start we were made to feel very welcome. John and his lovely wife, are in my opinion 2 of the best managers we have come across. John even offered to drive us to the local bowling club for dinner, because there was a big police blitz on that night... More

This accommodation rated highly with Trip Advisor so my wife and I just had to stay there. We were not disappointed. Great bed, newly repainted, new carpet, new Samsung TV, quiet location just opposite the RSL. Very pleased we did. Would definitely recommend! Free Wi-Fi. Quality accommodation.

We booked for 2 nights and stayed 3. John truly understands the meaning of hospitality. The welcome makes you feel like you are visiting old friends. We loved the fact that the doors of the rooms a open until guests arrive, besides being welcoming it freshens the room. The room was spotless, the beds fantastic and great wifi. What more... More

Great, very convenient and at the same time in a quiet location! Just walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The room was spacious, very clean and beds were quite comfortable. They even send you a welcome email before your arrival which was very impressing. Quick and easy check in and check out. Staff and management were very friendly and accommodating.... More

I stayed at this hotel to attend a function at the Ballina RSL club. It is directly across the street so location was perfect. Checked in at night and when I got to my room, the door was wide open. This seemed strange to me however I was told in the morning that this is the way things are done... More
