Staying here involved also a day by day tour of the area. Very interesting and a great way to see the area when you don't have a car. We flew in. The food was great, an entertainer during the evening meal each night. More for the older visitor. Does have a pool but outdoors not good on cooler days. Staff... More

I have never had such unfriendly service. It was peak time and the motels were all booked out. The staff knew that customers did not have much choice so were rude and not helpful at all. The rooms are old and in need if service. The showers were bad. There were no microwaves in the room. The grounds were overgrown... More

We stayed here as 2 couples It is located on the outer part of Ballina, it is a fairly standard Motel. a little tired but quite adequate with a laundry facility which is always welcome when touring. A good point is the informative... More

Contrary to the previous reviewer we thought the Ballina-Byron Tour was very average. For example we still can't figure why we were to spend two whole hours in Lismore a town that has very little to offer. Thankfully we were able to spend longer in Nimbin at the request of passengers. There was very little more to see than views... More

Had a great 7 day tour. Flying to Byron airport, we were picked up by a small bus and were taken to the motel (Ballina Byron Motel). We settled in then went to the dinning room for dinner. A delicious hot and cold breakfast was served every morning in the Pool Side Restaurant. A tasty four course was served in... More
