We booked into a king spa room and were not disappointed! View over the river was fantastic, room was comfortable and very clean, and hotel location is very convenient... walking distance to many restaurants and cafés. Only negative was we found the 'paid' WiFi service to be quite poor.

Great location, right on the river where you can enjoy a stroll while watching wild dolphins, pelicans, eagles & great sunrise & sunset. Yet it was convenient walk to shops & restaurants. Room was clean & fresh & comfortable. The Point Restaurant was a treat, inside outside relaxed atmosphere with lounges too. Food great, value great, & staff great. Would... More

Booked for the long weekend as we had always bypassed Ballina and was so pleasantly surprised. Beautiful apartment 20 feet from the water. We could sit on the atop or on the lounge and watch people fishing or doing other water sports. Very relaxing outlook as husband was recovering from an operation. The apartment was lovely and well appointed. Staff... More

Fabulous location overlooking the Richmond River, fabulous accommodation with everything you could want, great prices. Have stayed several times now and will continue to do so, service is fantastic and only a short stroll to restaurants and shops. A great place to stay for a few days

After a call from Ben at the Ramada to advise me that the hotel couldn't honour my booking made via AsiaRooms as they were fully booked for one of the nights, it took four phone calls and eight emails to AsiaRooms to ensure I wouldn't be charged. I can't review the hotel as we can't be accommodated but save yourself... More

Often stay at this lovely peaceful little town. The staff are friendly, the rooms are great. Everything you need. We usually stay in a one bedroom spa unit on the water front . It's lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the sunrise. The waterfront activity, the birds or the boats cruising past. Plenty of restaurants close by and... More

I recently stayed five nights in the Ramada Hotel and a very relaxing and comfortable stay it was. Room was spacious with a great view overlooking the river and I enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets. The bathroom was also spacious and the shower head was wonderful. I didn't always turn on the extractor fan because I found it cold and... More

We stayed in a hotel spa room on a higher level overlooking the river. Very pretty location, staff were most helpful and friendly, food was good. But a couple of things annoyed us. Entrance to the room is via a shared door, that is, two rooms share a main door off the walkway. Unfortunately we had the family from hell... More

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.
