We stopped in Ballina on our travels to be met with a very friendly host, who escorted us personally to our room, and our room was so very comfortable. The bed was lovely and even though this motel is older, it has a lovely ambience, as the hosts are so hospitable and friendly. The added extra of a free breakfast... More

I have never stayed any where that was this dirty. The pillow smelled like sweat when I arrived. They would benefit from washing their linen and a refurbishments. I have stayed at budget places that were cleamer and/or newer for the same price or less. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Good $ value for an overnight stay. Property dated and in need of some updating, small compact room; small bathroom. A little noisy. "Tight" carpark but accessible. Friendly and helpful reception staff.

at the end of the long long drive from Sydney! Very reasonable --- even free breakfast was provided when we stayed there! A very cheerful welcome on a Saturday afternoon. A roomy and bright unit - nice cream- painted brick walls and very soundproof ---- with very comfortable beds and the best shower!!! When we asked Jill for a recommendation... More
