We are a young couple and have been travelling for about 2 weeks now. We are absolutely amazed at the kindness of the owner,s Marlon and Anne :). We had special needs that go far beyond the general traveller and far beyond the motels advertised facilities and services. Our circumstance was happily and politely obliged to even though we are...

We spent 2 nights at this Motel and were glad to leave. The attitude of the owner was the worsted I have come across. He came into the room when we left the room and turned of the AC. And kept knocking no the door to tell us to shut the bathroom window even though there was no exhaust fan... More

All in all better than surrounding accommodation which I managed to glanced at. The main point I have to make: it was quite regardless it being Christmas Day. Hotel manager definitely cares about their reputation, he made sure our room was next to a family like us. It was comfy quiet and clean, that's all we wanted from a one... More

We booked previously for 3 days but arrived 3 days earlier. So we agreed to a 6 day deal which included breakfast. The first two mornings breakfast was reasonable( continental) as requested. On the third day we asked a staff member for some soap. Which was pleasantly responded to. That evening Marlon the owner abused me for having the audacity... More

Dog tired into Ballina...saw the $75/night sign...more fool me? Anyway, a double costs more, the $75 is for seniors, andway too tired to argue. And couldn't really breathe in the VERY smoky smelling reception. But the room was large, clean, tidy, quiet, and comfortable. It's a short walk up the main street into the very quiet town centre, for a... More

Stayed at this motel during a bit of an Australian adventure! Having driven from Melbourne to here with friends, we were pleased to find a clean room, with working air con and a very spacious size. We paid a good price for this place, it is close to everything and is in a quiet location. We mainly stayed here to... More

As our annual vacation falls over the Easter Holidays I always make my bookings around five months in advance to ensure our accomodation. As we specifically needed to stay in Ballina to visit friends on Easter Saturday when I made the booking I was quite happy to pay a deposit, but three weeks before our visit Marlon rang me apologising...

A deposit refundable up to 24 hours before arrival really only serves to ensure the guest will phone if not coming. The guest is not bound by the deposit, so how can we be? This guest was informed she wanted to come in the busiest 4-day period of the year, and was advised it was difficult to accommodate her, but... More

Reading other reviews, we really must say that we experienced a completely different stay to those mentioned. On arrival we found Marlon to be quite blunt but never offensive and we thought he was overall welcoming. Our room was very spacious, clean and we were very satisfied. The signs were very informative and we never had any interference from the... More

The sort of review we strive for, but some guests look for more than they pay for, then complain without justification. Usually they have not read the booking site details completely, often re extra charges for extra beds. Thank you for giving the lie to those, with your good review. More

Only negative was the grumpy style of the manager and his smoky office. The room was large and clean, actually smelt like disinfectant a bit. We were a bit worried after reading some of the other reviews but these proved to be unfounded. I suspect the owner is sick of problem clients doing the wrong thing; so long as you... More

Very clean and quiet Motel now the road Bypasses Ballina. Welcome Aircon. Undercover parking. Comfy beds Tiny pool which unfortunately was closed when we arrived and again when we left the next morning- unsure why. Close to RSL which is a lovely place to eat. Friendly owner who has been there for a long time.
