We stayed in a 1 bedroom for 2 nights and found the unit very comfortable. The units are fitted out to a high standard absolutely immaculate, beautiful view of The Richmond River and very efficient staff who were most helpful. The bedroom, however, was a little dark and stuffy with small windows up high on one side wall, which was... More

We have stayed & eaten in this hotel on many occasions over the years both for business and quiet weekends away - where we rarely left the hotel. The main reasons we frequent the Ramada Hotel & Suites in Ballina is the location (centre of town and riverfront), the friendly & efficient staff and the high quality of rooms. Spacious... More

Ramada Hotel & Suites, Ballina is our first choice of accommodation. We have stayed there on a number occasions on the Riverside of the Hotel. It is so relaxing any time of the day, particularly the setting of the Sun over the Richmond River. The Suites are very comfortable and very well appointed. Staff is next to none, very professional.... More

We stayed at the Ramada Hotel & Suites for the Easter 2014 break - 2 adults and 2 children. It was a beautifully appointed hotel for price point (particularly in school holidays), great restaurant downstairs and excellent facilities in room. The pool was great - fantastic lounges and cabanas for relaxing. Our room faced the river overlooking a small marina.... More

If you're looking for a large hotel in Ballina (rather than a B&B) this is the place to go. The location is super, right on the water, staff friendly, restaurants very good and the rooms are clean & comfortable. If I had to fault it the TV's are a bit old and I couldn't plug in my media streaming device... More

Facilities were great here as they offered a washing machine and dryer, just outside of the room. Spa suite with hot tub overlooking the river was beautiful. Made for a very pleasant stay. There is a very basic gym.. But the pleasure here is outside, great walks straight outside the door.

We recently stayed for 2 nights in a self-catering one bedroom suite. A last minute booking meant that we were offered a special rate, which we appreciated.

This is our preferred stop on the north coast. Once again friendly service, lovely river views from our spa suite and delicious breakfast before starting out for the day. In a very central location, within walking distance to most amenities.
