We stayed at the Ramada suites Ballina in a 1-bedroom suite for two nights over the long weekend in January. It was a pleasant stay in the room itself. The room had a nice layout and beautiful decor. Unfortunately our room faced the road and we could only see a small portion of the river inlet where a few boats... More

I was here for a one night stay. I was plesantly surprised on the quality of hotel, quality of staff, quality of food and beverage options. The Ramada exceeded all expectations. I stayed in a spa room with river views, the room was exceptionally clean! All staff were super nice and friendly, from the moment you check in to walking... More

We had 3 wonderful nights in a corner suite, to relax after a family visit into a very hot south western Queensland. It was magical to wake in the morning with the pelicans flying past the bedroom windows, at eye level. We did not take full advantage of the unit facilities, with everything provided to be self contained. However we... More

Booked the Ramada Ballinas for one night en route from Surfers Paradise to Sidney. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Nice location on the river. Room was clean, well-equipped, good wi-fi and opened on to a large deck overlooking the river (able to watch the dolphins in the early evening). Very comfortable. Parking was included, easy to access and seemed... More

This is a great hotel with excellent facilities, a beautiful location and friendly staff. I have stayed here a number of times for work and have always enjoyed the stay. While most of the hotels I now stay in provide free internet this is not available at this location meaning I have to rely on my own data at all... More

Booked a two bedroom unit sharing with daughter and fiancée. We could have lived there for a week. They had one bedroom with own bathroom with spa which had its own lockable separate entrance off a common foyer and access for both to a full sized laundry. They had privacy. Our area comprised a separate bedroom with large bathroom, no... More

This is a lovely hotel with a beautiful outlook over the river or township. The rooms are modern with generious bathrooms. We always stay in a spa room. Always clean and very well presented. The resturant is very good, we particularly like to sit in for breakfast as the river looks so beautiful. Their ricotta pan cakes were amazing! Staff... More

It had been around seven years since my last visit to the Ramada and I'm happy to say it was good then and still is. I stayed in a hotel spa room on the second floor this time. So close to the beautiful river mouth that I could smell the salt and sea. The room was immaculate and well stocked... More

We have stayed here on two occasions now and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It is the perfect location to relax and we love that we haven't had to pay extra just for having young children (in portacots we brought ourselves so no extra effort involved for staff) with us. It's a beautiful spot, great river views and perfect... More
