Check in was very ordinary compared to other places we have stayed,We were the only couple in reception,even so staff did not go out of there way to make us feel welcome or even really smile. Room was spacious but not really clean,especially for the price.

I loved the location and the big suites are wonderful. I could see the dolphins swimming from my balcony. The rooms are neat and clean. I enjoyed the four nights I stayed there recently. All the restaurants attached to the hotel are also wonderful places.

I stayed here for one night on business and really enjoyed the water front location. An enjoyable stay - with friendly service. The room was clean and quiet & had all basic requirements covered. The breakfast menu offers a good range of delicious and healthy options in a relaxed dining space with river views. Nothing stood out as a highlight,... More

Stopping in for an overnight stay due to business I was pleasantly surprised by how new this building is. The rooms are quite spacey, have excellent views from their balconies ( I even saw dolphins) and have comfy beds that are one mattress, not two pushed together. Bathroom is large with decent water pressure. Restaurants in the hotel make it... More

The Ramada is very good value for a weeks stay. We spoke to Ben when booking the apartment, telling him what we required and our requirements were met. The apartment was on the 2nd floor overlooking the Richmond river. We faced south which was a little cold because of the inclement weather, but in the summer this would be really... More

My partner and I were in in Ballina for the night for a wedding and we were very impressed with the Ramada. It was an incredibly dreary day and the Ramada proved to be the perfect digs. Check in was swift, and our spa room was very well sized and fit out. The car park is linked to the building... More

My husband and I were looking for accommodation in Byron Bay when we discovered the Ramada Hotel & Suites at Ballina. Comparative to Byron, the Ramada in Ballina offered fantastic value for money and, as we were prepared to make the 25 minute each way drive to Byron Bay for the day, we booked two nights in the 'Legendary Ballina'...

Pleasant hotel. Helpful staff. However not extremely good value for money. One would think that the prices charged would include free WiFi to the suite, however I had to pay $2.00 for one hour of WiFi access. It was actually cheaper for me to use mobile data. Also, given it's rating, one would have expected toothbrushes in the bathroom, so... More

Recently my wife and I who are over 65 stayed two nights at the Ramada at Ballina New South Wales, we are a mature couple who travel overseas frequently but are now starting to travel Australia as we now feel that Australia has some better places to visit than some in Europe. What a delightful hotel was this. The rooms... More

We stayed for 6 nights. Top (6th) floor room overlooking the river. $165/night. Spa one bedroom room no 607. Pretty river view that captures some of the sunset. Our room was spotless and bed was very comfortable. Nice restaurant: we got for entree calamari and Kilpatrick oysters, mains parmigiana and Atlantic salmon. They accidentally gave our meals to another table... More
