Stayed here one night in a spa room. Our room was modern and very spacious. Would definitely recommend requesting a room on a higher level; we did and we were given a room on the sixth floor which had an absolutely beautiful view over the river from our little balcony. A lovely stay and much too short!

Stayed in transit to the north and enjoyed the stay. A big corner room overlooking the river that was worth the money. All facilities will maintained and minor problem sorted immediately without fuss. Glad I stayed.

We love the Ramada in Hervey Bay so we were hoping the Ballina one would be equally as nice, we were tired from travelling and I went to reception to book a one bedroom apartment - my husband has a disability so the wonderful Receptionist gave us a room next to the lift and we were able to park in...

Two hours south of Brisbane to an excellent hotel. Booking was easy. Greeted by friendly staff (people) immediately making us welcome. Convenient to town centre. Great location for walking along the river and up to lookout. Lighthouse Surf Club great destination for a walk. Opportunity for a little whale watching too. Restaurants on site gave plenty of options. Convenient for... More

I was with a group of 60 visiting Ballina for the night. We checked in in a relative short time. We followed up with a dinner. The meals were superb. Good selection and great flavours. Everyone was very pleased. The beer selection was my favourite supporting local breweries with their beer. Breakfast the next morning was well catered for with... More

Stayed at the Ramada for 2 nights in a spa room. Room was nice. Spa was good. Had a good view over the river and was close to everything you could need. Worth the money for a weekend away. I'd recommend walking further than downstairs for meals. The restaurant attached (but not a part of) the motel is on the... More

Stopped in here to break up our trip. We had room 305 which has a spa bath, semi private balcony that looks out over the water and a king bed. Very comfortable and we would definitely stay here again :)
