We stayed one night as we were passing through Ballina, studio room rate was $180au which I found extremely expensive for such a basic room. Beds were very uncomfortable too. The old school 'feel the springs in the mattress' kind.

Stayed here for 1 night on our way down the Gold Coast. Stayed in a family room with 2 queen beds in 2 rooms as travelling with my sister and brother in law. The shower needed cleaning before we could use it as it was full of hairs and dirt. The location was good and the cost was good but... More

Rooms were spacious and well equipped for overnight self catering travellers. Beds were clean and comfortable, showers hot. The restaurant was very good and service was friendly except for the guy on the front desk who thought guests interfered with his day.

Stayed here for 3 week nights. We had an upstairs room which was a bit daunting for elderly people to lug up their suitcases. It was also a nuisance having to go up and down to the pool or over to the beach. The room was spacious and clean but there is a very small shower room. The grounds are... More

Jocam, thank for taking time to write your review and your positive comments... we do understand your concerns about being an upstairs room (1 flight steps), and agree with your advice to other readers, to ASK FOR A DOWNSTAIRS ROOM if this is an issue for you. As you can appreciate, with so many online bookings, rooms are allocated based... More

Only negative was that we had an upstairs room and the stairs were a bit difficult for my senior parents. Positives, extremely friendly staff, spa sauna pool and daybeds are like going to a day spa. Comfortable beds, spacious room, walk to the most amazing surf club for breakfast, we will be back, not just for the weekend. :-).

We have stayed at the Ballina Beach Resort on three separate occasions and each time is incredibly enjoyable and unique. At one time we even hosted a forty person event on the grounds and the hotel staff was accommodating as can be. It is the small things that make you remember a visit, and the last occasion made me especially... More

Nicely located near the beach but a taxi ride away from town, this resort was lovely and quiet with a nice, tidy room. Comfy bed overlooking a small garden was peaceful, but the spa in the room could have had a bit more power to it. Nice landscaping for the resorts pool with lounge seats, and restaurant with beautiful food.... More

We spent 2 nights in a one bedroom suite. The complex has recently been refurbished and the rooms were above average for motel fare. We had a lovely view over the grounds which are large and well tended. The pool is excellent! We enjoyed breakfast each morning (lovely) and also had a delicious dinner in the restaurant. The beach is... More

Stayed here for 3 nights over the new years period and loved every minute of it! Ballina was the complete opposite to Byron during this time and was relaxed and peaceful.The resort is just across from the beach and out if the way of town which adds to the calm atmosphere.
