John and Tina were friendly and helpful, even offering to order a Chinese meal for me as their restaurant isn't open on a Sunday night. The room was very well appointed & lovely. All round best marks for a relaxing stay after a long day's drive. Would happily recommend it to anyone staying in the Ballina area!!

The whole motel is spacious, rom a good size, clean and quiet. Restaurant nice and breakfast huge. Staff friendly and give wonderful advice. Great space outside for kids to play or for adults just to relax. Can't go past it.

Rooms are very clean and quiet, would recommend for a couple of nights. The rooms are looking a little dated and the lounge chair in our room was very worn. The service from the staff on the front desk was very good and it is walking distance to the local pub.....

The people running it were very accommodating to us as we hadn't booked and just turned up looking for somewhere to stay. The room was very clean and the beds are comfortable. After driving in the hot sun the pool was a great relief. The place is obviously recommended by the NSW police as apart from 1 other family in... More

Always stay here when in Ballina. Huge clean room with great set up. Food is terrific and all staff are helpful and friendly. Plenty of space to wander around the Bali inspired garden and the pool. No complaints

We'd booked in here for an overnight stay during a recent road trip & were not expecting any great deal just a room. What a pleasant surprise we got. Large spacious room big, comfy bed, clean as a whistle & a very quiet unspoilt night's sleep. With a continental brekky included in price. Next time we come this way we'll... More

We stopped here for one night in transit. Room was comfortable and well kept, bed felt new, big television with all the channels you need. Restaurant was very nice with well presented and tasty food. The better place to stay in town!

We stayed in the well appointed exec queen room. The staff are very friendly and efficient, being flexible and understanding. We had no trouble extending our stay an additional night. The restaurant's board of fair was reasonably extensive, the prices very reasonable and the quality very good. The pool area is a step above those offered by most hotels/motels. Location... More
