There were three of us and we had a two bedroom unit. Furnishings were in the 'Heritage' style and looked to be very good quality. Main room had a very comfortable queen bed and the second room had two singles. Rooms were spacious, as was the bathroom. The only oddity, in our minds was that the fairly large bathroom had... More

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you as you walk into reception. The rooms are fresh and extremely clean. Nothing flash,but very comfortable. Great position in town. Great value for money. A few 5 star hotels could take a page out of The Heritages cleanliness book. Lovely stay.

You can tell this motel is loved. Freshly painted, carefully tended gardens with potted geraniums everywhere, terracotta brick paving outlining the car spots. You don't see this kind of extra attention in most motels. It is conveniently located in the heart of Ballina, and the manager gave us a great recommendation for where to dine. The rooms are spacious and... More

Stayed in a family room with a friend recently. The main room had a queen sized bed and a couch (exactly as in the photo shown above) and a separate room with 2 single beds. It was spacious for 2 adults, clean, quiet and conveniently located. The beds were very comfortable. A big surprise! Great value for money. Will definitely... More

This motel has an excellent position in the town and right opposite the RSL Club - very convenient for meals. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well furnished; perhaps over priced for what they offer.

Spent a night here after a very long and wet leg of the Sydney to Surfers charity bicycle ride. Needless to say I was not in a good mood due to being cold and wet. This mood soon lifted when I arrived at the Inn with a warm friendly welcome and help with luggage and our bicycles. The room was... More

We stayed here recently and what a surprise package it was. From the warm welcome when we arrived to the farewell at the end. The rooms are very nice and tidy and the bed was perfect to sleep on. The hotel is kept very clean and shows no sign of damage or age. We will definitely stay there again when... More

We stayed here overnight in January. We booked in that morning as we decided Ballina would be a good stopover. We found this motel to be very clean, tidy, well set out and the room was a great size. It is across the road from the Ballina RSL Club where we had a lovely dinner. We had breakfast at the... More
