My wife and I stayed here for three nights in a one bedroom apartment with river glimpses from the large and very private balcony. After we checked in we found a couple of minor things that needed seeing to and they were fixed immediately. Well done. Our apartment was spacious, clean and a pleasure to stay in. I could live...

My only disappointment is that they do not offer laundry facilities for guests who stay in the smaller rooms a coin operated facility would be helpful for those holiday travelers, staff where kind enough to bring fresh...

When checking in the apartment, staff was very friendly and polite. Check in was quick and easy, car parking ample undercover secure. The lift to the apartment was a little small but we managed to get in ok. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with plenty of room and kitchen had everything needed. Sleep quality was excellent and nothing... More

We were in Ballina last week, and stayed at the Ballina Suites for 3 nights in a twin room. There was no kitchen facilities for us to wash up except the bathroom vanity. There were ants everywhere, our bath towels did not get changed at all during a four day stay, nor were our bed sheets changed. We were not... More

Spent one night to celebrate my wife's birthday. Standard double. Spacious, clean, shared balcony - which could impinge on privacy. Location is central. A bit expensive for what you receive. Restaurant pleasant with a special during our stay that was excellent value.

A little expensive for Ballina but in our opinion worth the extra. It's just a hotel room but nice local-town staff and not tourist-oriented was a nice change after the Gold Coast. Perfect location on the river and although the pool area has the worst view in Ballina, it is a good size pool to relax in. Room was slightly... More
