I stayed here in a king room (with spa) with a friend. I had stayed many years ago and it is much improved. The property on the whole is a little dated but the room is definitely modern with nice furnishings and a comfy bed. It's a short stroll to the beach and also a new surf club which is... More

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.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Ballina Beach Resort and I will not be returning. I purchased a few nights away as a birthday gift for my partner and was thoroughly disappointed. We had no hot water for our entire stay. Upon reporting the lack of hot water on our 2nd day to Reception we were told... More

Lovely quiet location. Beds were very comfortable & it was great to have the kids in a separate room. Looks like it's been newly renovated, so that was a nice surprise. Close to beach but no shops nearby. Luckily we had a car. Heating worked, thank goodness because it was cold. No complimentary tea, sugar or milk & only 1... More

Good hotel with perfect location closer to beach etc. But it is not a resort really. More like a 3star hotel. Bed and breakfast was the deal, but there were no one in the restaurant on saturday morning. receptionist had to come and make something for just us - it was rather odd, but he was very good. The second... More

We stopped off here on our way down to Coffs Harbour. We literally picked it at random and what a little gem of a find in a great location. I even went for a walk on the beach in the morning as it was a very short walk there. The hotel is set in a lush setting slightly reminiscent of... More

Enjoyed our stay here immensely. Rooms are spacious and the spa bath was an absolutely blissful way to end the day. As we closed our eyes to fall asleep all we could hear was the distant roar of the crashing surf, incredibly relaxing.
