What a joy this hotel is. Located within walking distance to shops, yet nestled in a quiet street. Service is excellent - discreet and friendly. On this occasion, I stayed in the room originally designed for the head mistress. It's located downstairs, with easy access to reception and front balcony. It's a delightful and well furnished room, pristine clean. The... More

Beautifully restored building, extremely helpful and friendly staff. A very relaxed atmosphere and an extremely talented chef. Location is great as off the main road but still close enough to walk to town centre. If need to stay in Ballina again will definitely be back

We stayed on Christmas night on our way back to Sydney. Room was lovely and on the very top floor (only stair access) which wouldn't have been a problem except I am heavily pregnant. But they weren't to know this. If we had been staying more than one night I might have requested to be moved to a room closer... More

the property was built in early 1900's as a Methodist Girls Boarding School. Over the years it has been used as flats and a boarding house but the present owners have faithfully restored it to its former character. Much of the furniture was sourced in Tasmainia and is of the appropriate period. We stayed in the former head mistresses room... More

How good is it to experience 5 star, yet feel right at home. The friendly staff and comfortable surrounds of this heritage building make a perfect combination to enjoy beautiful Ballina. Be surprised by a pillow menu that allows you to sleep well, and enjoy simply stunning food served in unhurried surrounds. Probably not suitable for young children.

I routinely stay here on business trips to the area. Once again, the stay was ideal. The attic room was quirky but comfortable (but don't use it if you don't like stairs), with the room clean and well furnished. The staff were friendly and very helpful and check in/out was effortless The room service meal (fish/chips), was a misnomer, as... More

We stayed here just the one night, but would have loved to stay longer. Good location, close enough to walk to town and down to the river. Friendly staff, efficient service, beautifully restored building and much better than your average hotel or motel. Our bed and breakfast was good value, and the breakfast itself was very good. We had dinner... More

This was a real gem. The premises are beautiful and full of history. My room on the first floor was very well appointed in period style, and opened onto a small balcony area, overlooking a fountain and small courtyard garden. The hotel was within easy walking distance to Ballina shops, and also an easy stroll to the river. Reception staff... More

The website does not do this fine property justice! Ballina Manor is not only stately and interesting but also immaculate and homely. The staff manage to be both helpful and available without being intrusive. Nothing was too much to ask!

Wow, what a great experience here. Arrived slightly later than expected to check in and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The period styled room was an instant hit with my partner. A great bonus of the room was being able to step outside to enjoy the sunset from the verandah. Location is great as is close to a... More
