We had a great two night stay in a 1 bedroom apartment on 6th floor. Our apartment was very clean and quite. The position of the Ramada is probably the best in town allowing for easy walking along the river and to any number of restaurants. Robert on reception provided very professional friendly service both with our phone booking (on... More

We stayed over the Easter break. It was one of the best accommodations around town. Room and toilet were well-cleaned and tidy. It's very close to shops, cafes, eateries and the beach -- by walking distance. View was lovely and hotel room was clean. We liked the kitchenette (river view room) where we saved money by cooking instead of eating... More

Quiet convenient location right on the river bank, just around the corner to the town centre. Efficient and friendly reception, clean, tidy, quiet spacious room. Outdoor swimming pool - basic but with good sun profile. Bathroom... More

Every time we visit Ballina we stay here. We find it is well located right on the Richmond River and within walking distance to the business district. Most apartments have a lovely river view. The staff here are friendly and helpful and the prices are reasonable. There is a licenced Restaurant (The Point) within the building, which serves good quality... More

Stayed for one night, had a big one bed over looking the water. We had such a comfortable sleep and it was so relaxing to sit with a coffee on the balcony the next morning and watch the kayakers go by. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will def stay again.

Two nights while away for work. I used to stay in another Ballina hotel, and the Ramada is more expensive, but you certainly get what you pay for. These rooms are immaculately clean, the spa bath is such a treat and there are 3 restaurants to choose from. My meal from the Italian restaurant - Chicken Valdostana was terrific -... More

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
