The minute we walked through the front door we were greeted with smiles and great service from reception. We stayed for 2 nights, parking was right out front of room and our window looked right onto the pool. 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 !

The motel room was well appointed with all mod-cons, including wifi. The bed and linen were of a high standard, as was the cleanliness. The staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The motel has a very good restaurant with a broad menu. We stayed in an inside room, which cut off all road noise. The only downside was the distance... More

Booked last minute one night stay. Very friendly welcome. Excellent room - clean, spacious, well equipped, very comfortable bed, great shower. No on site meal available but were offered take away Chinese or recommended west over inn (300m away) for "steak dinner" option. Opted for second choice - great meal, great value no complaints.

Nice little hotel just outside on Ballina CBD. Friendly staff, room was spacious and clean. Free Wifi, parking right outside your door (single storey). I ate dinner at the restaurant and it was really nice food. Nice and basic for the cost and rating. Well done guys!
