This new hotel is located on the border of the river. Excellent decor of good taste. Very good room, nice views, balcony, very well equipped. Quality of continental breakfast was excellent but very limited choice and some staff not very attentive. Late refurbishment of food. Management, be there at breakfast (!) Very convenient garage. Town center at walking distance.

Got a lovely spa room on the ground floor - reasonably priced, functional wireless and good restaurants both in the hotel and just outside. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside for Bluesfest was the 1 hour plus bus ride to the festival

The Ramada is well located on the Richmond River and we used it as a base camp to explore Byron Bay and some of the interior townships in the region. It has a great walkway along the river, lovely views and provides free access to a convenient laundry room facility. The dining room was very good too.

Stayed in a 1 Bedroom Riverview overlooking small harbour on 5th floor for 4 nights in March - did not want to go home. Very comfortable, plenty of room, as sofa was a foldout bed room catered for 4( chairs, outdoor seating and crockery and cutlery). Lovely sitting outdoors eating breakfast or glass of wine at end of day. (supermarket... More

I have been staying at the Ramada 4 times a year for the last 7 or so years. Generally I find it a pleasant stay in comfortable surroundings. However, I must say that my recent visit was a disappointment. I entered my room to find it possibly the smallest room I have ever stayed in, and if they think that... More

We booked a 1 night getaway while nana was here to mind the kids - liked it so much we stayed a second night (& would have stayed longer if nana didn't have to go back home!). Beautiful, big clean suites, super comfy king bed. Very friendly and efficient service. Really nice rooftop pool. Everything we needed was right there,... More

The Ramada at Ballina is situated in a magic position on the Richmond river. There is a walking path all along the water way suitable for walking, bikes etc. The hotel itself is well appointed. The rooms are on the small side with a maximum of 18 inches between the end of the bed and the entertainment unit. They have... More

We arrived on dusk and were very efficiently checked in. Our room (405) overlooked the river although as a hotel room the walls of the balcony did rather limit the width of the view! King size bed - very comfortable sleep. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful sitting out on the terrace next to the river. Very friendly staff on... More

Arrived late check in quick and easy Room 616 faced the small harbour great view. Airy room room service prompt. Huge storm to watch only annoying part was the walkway lights which did not dim all night and even with block out curtains was still noticeable.

After returning from a beautiful dinner my husband and I were looking forward to a spa seeing as we had purchased the spa suite which was quite a bit extra. We were only away for a night (enjoying a night away together without our 1 year old). We ran the spa only to realise there was no hot water at... More
