Clean rooms, lovely gardens, great pool, quiet. Only downside was bathroom towel rail above toilet paper holder, so wet towel causes issues. Would definetly stay again. Not far by car to highway , rooms a good size not pokey.

We decided to look at Ballina and came across this little gem! The managers Tina and John of the motel could not be more friendly or helpful,... More

The motel is set within attractive grounds with a large pool & spa. The restaurant had well laid tables with a varied menu & the food was very good. Free wifi. Overall, the motel was... More

Recently stayed overnight in a family room ($260) on our way up the coast. Was confused at first when I could only see beds for 4 made up when I'd booked for 5 but after a call to reception found out the sofa bed was ready with sheets, I simply needed to pull it out and get pillows from the...

The rooms are clean, well maintained and accommodated the 5 of us nicely. I would recommend... More

The team of staff at Ballina Island created a magical evening for our wedding reception. Sensational food, a gorgeous venue room and great accommodation for our guests. Close to the beach and cafés in ballina. The owners of Ballina island went above and beyond to make the event picture perfect.

The motorinn had a great saltwater pool and spa area. We visited for the Christmas holiday and the staff was very nice and helpful . The restaurant was also open so it was convenient for our visit. There is also a pub within walking distance.

We stayed during the peak new year period. They were fully booked on our first night but you would not have known. It was quiet and we often had the pool to ourselves. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping were thorough. Our room itself was clean and spacious but very hot. We slept with fans on and air... More
