“Clean, quiet and delightful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

John and Tina were friendly and helpful, even offering to order a Chinese meal for me as their restaurant isn't open on a Sunday night. The room was very well appointed & lovely. All round best marks for a relaxing stay after a long day's drive. Would happily recommend it to anyone staying in the Ballina area!!

Room Tip: I tink most rooms would be quiet and am sure they would be of the same high standard

The whole motel is spacious, rom a good size, clean and quiet. Restaurant nice and breakfast huge. Staff friendly and give wonderful advice. Great space outside for kids to play or for adults just to relax. Can't go past it.

Rooms are very clean and quiet, would recommend for a couple of nights. The rooms are looking a little dated and the lounge chair in our room was very worn. The service from the staff on the front desk was very good and it is walking distance to the local pub.....

The people running it were very accommodating to us as we hadn't booked and just turned up looking for somewhere to stay. The room was very clean and the beds are comfortable. After driving in the hot sun the pool was a great relief. The place is obviously recommended by the NSW police as apart from 1 other family in our section the rest were all police officers, so we thought we would be pretty safe.

Always stay here when in Ballina. Huge clean room with great set up. Food is terrific and all staff are helpful and friendly. Plenty of space to wander around the Bali inspired garden and the pool.
No complaints

We'd booked in here for an overnight stay during a recent road trip & were not expecting any great deal just a room. What a pleasant surprise we got. Large spacious room big, comfy bed, clean as a whistle & a very quiet unspoilt night's sleep. With a continental brekky included in price. Next time we come this way we'll definitely be staying here again.

Have stayed here twice now and will do so again same time next year. The owners are very friendly and the Restaraunt has beautiful food and lovely staff. Last year we stayed in the 4 Star section and this time in the 3 Star section. Both clean and tidy and renovations are being done all the time, no complaints at all. We had room service this time for our evening meal and it was beautiful. Close to all shopping in Ballina.

Room Tip: If staying a few days I would book into the 4 Star rooms but just an overnight a 3 Star room is quit...
