Stayed here for one night on a long journey down the coast. Great spot, comfortable and quiet. Bed was comfy and room was clean. Bathroom was large and shower great. Loved the fact that there was plates, cutlery and a microwave in the room. Service was faultless. I had a good night sleep.

Room was clean and had been renovated to keep up with the expectations of the modern traveler. The free Wi-fi was a thoughtful addition to the room and much appreciated. Loved that the old gum trees... More

Travelling to Burleigh Heads with my sister and her husband we stayed here for an overnight. We both agreed it was one of the best beds we had slept in. (We both have bad backs) Good sized rooms. The four of us were able to play cards very comfortably in one of the rooms. This is the only review I... More

Extremely nice and helpful staff, not far from the middle of town, great sized rooms, an amazingly cheap price, it really was an amazing stay and it had everything that we needed. After travelling 8 hours to get to Ballina, the staff were very helpful with... More

Great place to stay on way to Gold Coast. Stayed on second floor, could see the 'big prawn' from over down the other side of road. Nice clean room with good beds, good layout. Could hear neighbour enjoying the footy game, but quiet when game finished. Just off main road so there is some road noise from traffic but if... More
