Stayed at this motel overnight whilst on business. Good sized room and bathroom; excellent to see little bottles of bathroom products not a wall dispenser - a nice touch, great towels. A little dated in interior but clean and comfortable. Excellent country style breakfast - very good value. Good WIFI (free) access. Had a room at rear of property -... More

Booked a deluxe room, but it certainly didn't look like a deluxe room to me. Even when I called the manager to get directions, she said she didn't have my booking. I thought everything was very over priced. The restaurant only has 1 hopeless waitress who was constantly getting shouted at by the manager and we were waiting half an... More

Staff were extremely helpful. Amenities were like new & very clean. Large van sites with shade. Pool & spa were great. Highly recommend this caravan park to anyone, we will be back! Close to surf beaches & shops also only 30 mins to Byron Bay & 1 hour to surfers paradise.

Very clean and comfortable and aesthetically appealing. Service at reception was excellent and offered up tips and suggestions without being asked. If you are prone to disturbance at all you might find the next door neighbour's air con a small issue.

We found our room clean and a good size with full length windows looking onto the garden. The bed was very comfortable and there is no traffic noise at all. Our stay was short so we did not use the dining room but the staff we spoke to were all pleasant and helpful. We thought the value was good and... More

Arrived at about 3pm, the service at Reception was fantastic. Not only did we get a smooth check-in, we also asked about local attractions. The lady was fantastic! She loves Ballina and is very helpful. The rooms are spacious (we were a couple), simply and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is clean. Showers were hot with a reasonable standard shower head...

I have stayed here a couple of times now. I always have a great nights rest. The motel offers specious well presented rooms which are clean and fresh, quiet, and comfortable. The on site restaurant offers great value, good sized, tasty meals, either dine in or room service. The customer service is always warm and friendly. I will be staying... More

Better than ever. Third stay in 12 months and it just keeps getting better. Clean, tidy, quiet with accomodating hosts. And Free WiFi - a handy bonus when you have an unexpected stop in the middle of a business trip with a heap of Laptop work still to do. Good food in the restaurant so didn't have to go out... More

After 13 overnight stops on a book tour ( with some interesting accommodation options!) we wanted our last night to be special and wow did we pick the right place. 5 stars in every way: peaceful, tropical, pool, cleanliness - faultless - facilities and the welcome???? nothing like a country welcome. I would come back and recommend this motel as... More

Not a new motel but reasonably well maintained. Room was clean and spacious with all the needed facilities. Free wifi. Pleasant gardens with a slight Balenese theme. Had a good meal in the motel's restaurant. Owner was helpful and friendly.
