Love this hotel. Lovely rooms. Lovely linen. Quiet. Private. The pool has cute day lounges that provide shade - love a good read here! I was lucky enough to stay on the pool level last time in a suite - and it faced out onto a huge huge balcony - shared, but we were the only ones using it. As... More

this was business and only a one night stay. Staff were very helpful. Room was as expected - clean, tasteful, neat, nothing worn and no fluff in the corners or the air vents. Wifi was extra. Breakfast was disappointing for me as very limited continental option. If you wanted a high calorie cooked breakfast there were plenty of options. Last... More

We spent two nights at the Ramada Hotel and Suites in a double room with spa. We found the room nicely appointed but very small, compared with the bathroom which was large because of the spa(which we did not use). The only option for sitting, apart from the bed, was a small kitchen type chair which was provided for the... More

Dear Deejay17, thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We do like to hear of our guests experience. Apologies you found your room a little cramped for your liking. The Hotel rooms are the smaller of the room types available, and generally suit most guests. For those looking for a little more space we would recommend a... More

Top Shelf Accommodation. Everything about it is excellent. The location, the quality of the rooms, the quality of the food etc. The staff are some of the best hotel staff I have seen. They set the atmosphere for a great experience and really have hit the right note. Thank you Ramada Ballina.

Having had a stressful time & needing to chill out we chose Ballina - how refreshing - a gorgeous spot overlooking the Richmond River. Spacious apartments. River views - wish I could stay longer. Helpful staff, well appointed apartments, river views - what more could we ask for ? More time

Honestly very disappointing. Claims to be 4.5 stars but I'd rate it 3 at best. CAR PARK: The car-park is beyond a joke. Tiny spaces, no planning. Insanely difficult just to drive around let alone park in and we were driving a small 2 door car! Many patrons including ourselves had to park on the street at times due to... More

We stayed here in mid January and really enjoyed it. Our apartment was on the third floor and shared a huge balcony overlooking the river with other units. We saw dolphins swimming up the river! The room was quiet and well furnished. The bathroom was lovely and the kitchen was nice with modern appliances. There is a picturesque path and... More

Partner & I stayed here a few years ago and loved it.So we decided to re-visit for our anniversary and again we were not disappointed. Front desk service friendly and efficient. Our room on the 5th floor overlooked the beautiful Richmond River estuary. The room was exceptionally clean and well presented as was the bathroom that had a separate shower... More

Have most good things to say about this hotel. We stayed there just for one night just for a treat for the two of us. Rooms very nice looking. Bit odd that its open between the bathroom and the other room. It was possible to close it, but if you wanted to do a dump you did not feel much... More

This is one of the best if not the best hotel I have stayed in. The room was clean and the bed so comfortable. Great location, handy to everything. I can't wait to go back. My husband and I were only pasting through Ballina and found this gem of a place by accident. After staying here I didn't want to... More
