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...

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.

We booked in for 3 days and then extended it to 8 days. Tina (proprietor) was very accommodating to all our needs and made our stay pleasant. We have been in two other motels on previous stays in Ballina which were not as enjoyable. We will definitely come back to this motel.

The accommodation provided for us was excellent, the room very clean, a comfy bed, well presented gardens, easy parking and wifi that worked, excellent hosts and the best of all, for breakfast, lambs fry to die for. Thank you for looking after us?

Had a one night stay on our way through Victoria. Beautiful room. Excellent service. Be warned though, if you order the Big Breakfast, bring your appetite. It was huge. The only thing I would say against the town itself is that there are very few eating places open during mid week evenings. Free Wi-Fi. Ended up at Maccas!!
