Stayed in a family room (2 bedrooms) for one night on a road trip. The place was clean, comfortable and both rooms had a TV, which worked a treat (ABC2 is available (!)). There is no kitchen, but for a one nighter it's all you need. Staff was very friendly.

A lovely quiet and comfortable motel - service was great and the room was really clean. We would definitely stay there again. The motel was easy to find on the way in, and a short drive from the city centre.

We were encouraged to eat in the on site restaurant, meals were good sized and tasted great!, waiter was very good looking... More

Right from walking in the door, was greeted by smiling faces. Room was clean and tidy, car park right out front. Had dinner at the attached restaurant, the meal was huge, and tasted great. Breakfast the next morning was the same. This is where I will be staying for every Ballina trip.

We came across this place, after a long day of driving. Nothing was too much trouble. We were encouraged to eat in the on-site restaurant, which, after driving all day, was a welcome sight. The lamb shanks were to die for. The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. Easy access to the highway and town.

A good thing about this motel is that you have a dedicated parking spot right outside your room. The room was OK with everything needed and a comfortable bed. All rooms are ground floor and easy to find. Ideal for a short stay. Service was friendly. About 2km from town centre. 4 stars

The reception was very friendly. We have seen a lot of rooms in five weeks traveling. This was alright. Beds slept super. Wifi was for free. The restaurant was very quiet but the food was super. We had a very nice stay.

Unfriendly reception by totally uninterested gentleman at reception,he offered us an grade for $15 which we agreed upon but although clean and comfortable not worth paying extra for one night. Location was good for RSL and other eating venues throughout the town,however the man in reception should realise and know that a SMILE goes a long way !
