My husband & I stayed at the Avlon Gardens Motel in Ballina last weekend, a great little Motel. A lovely welcome by the new owners who do a very quick checkin and meet you at your room with fresh milk and an offer to show how to use a/c, tv, wifi. The rooms are large and welcoming and the bed... More

Pros: Close to big shopping centre, huge rooms (great for families), kitchenette, parking in front of room, friendly service, clean, fast and free wifi access. Cons: Rooms were quite dark, electricity outlets in the bathroom and behind the bed were coming away from the wall (a bit scary!), bathroom floor tiles were slippery (I almost stacked it the first time...

Was perfect for the price for our one night stay (arrived in the evening and left early in the morning), maybe not the most modern decor in the room but had good space, microwave, fridge, electric kettle, a/c and was really very clean so basically they had everything we needed for the short stay with a toddler. Very friendly family... More

Stayed here 2 nights for work. Nothing luxurious or flash, pretty normal room. Stark brick walls made the room feel dark at night. Reception was friendly and helfpful. Carpark was spacious. Had a huge room for just myself, enough room to spread out. Felt comfortable and bed was firm. Only issue was you can hear people talking if they were... More

We stayed one night in this lovely motel on one of the main roads in Ballina. We turned up without making a booking and were very warmly welcomed at reception. The kind lady offered to let us look at the room she had available and we took it straight away. She even came back later with fresh milk for us.... More

I had been working in Byron Bay one weekend, and when I got to Ballina airport I became really unwell and wasn't able to fly. I needed somewhere to stay and I stayed at the Avlon gardens Motel and I must say the hosts were fantastic. The room was clean and comfortable, the hosts were so nice by bringing me... More

We stayed at Avlon Gardens recently for two nights. We stayed in a spa suite and found it to be well equipped and spacious. I really loved the location near shopping centres. Everything operated in the room, bed was comfortable and the spa worked great.

Family of six from Denmark, Europe. Stayed at Avlon Gardens Motel during X-Mas 2013. Clean, comfortable & efficient room. Fantastic (almost touching) service from the hosts, who really cared for their clients, so cannot give anything but 5 stars. Highly recommendable. Location: Very short walking distance to shopping center, 1 min. drive to downtown Ballina & beaches. Easy way to... More

My husband and I spent a night en route up to Qld and was very pleasantly surprised by room and by owners warm reception. Slept well and enjoyed having a kitchenette. We were also pleasantly surprised at the tariff which was under $100, good value. Walked to the local Bowling club and brought back some takeaway Chinese to eat in... More
