Conveniently located within walking distance to eateries, beach and main walkway to the centre of town. Staff were extremely friendly. Nothing was a problem. If we go back to this wonderful area we would not hesitate to stay at the Ballina Beach Resort

This resort is located close to Lighthouse Beach and opposite a park. We had a spacious ,king bed spa room. The room was very nice, but the bed was too hard for us.

Pretty pleased we stopped here for a night. It's hard to make a last minute booking but the lovely receptionist made it easy and was very welcoming offering us a table for dinner in the seafood restaurant too. We enjoyed the spa bath and if we had more time I would have used the sauna and spa near the pool.... More

We were looking for a quiet peaceful place with good amenities. Food was great, staff friendly and rooms clean with good parking facilities. A short walk to the patrolled beach. Five minutes from the township, Great spot.

We were created by friendly staff who more than accommodated our room request. We had a lovely stay with superb dinner at the restaurant. Staff knew all guests and easily assisted with any enquiries or requests. First on my list for the area.

A special rate for return visitors made this exceptional value with no compromise in quality. Quiet location close to beach and river for local walks; also makes a good base for rainforest national park and scenic hinterland day trips from Ballina. Friendly and efficient service, comfortable very clean room.
