Whilst this motel is a little out of the way Leanne runs a beautiful quite environment. The rooms are crisp and clean and nothing is too much trouble. A little drive to the centre of town for a multitude of food and beverage options. I will stay here every year if "my" room is available!!! Wonderful place to stay.

Great rooms. Clean, nice staff, great shower and really comfy bed. Pillows great too. Motel been recently done up. Value for money will definitely stay again. Recommend for a stay. Better eating in lennox head than Ballina. Motel does offer a good Berkley.

Quality all the way. All the little touches of a five star motel, plus the added bonus of a kitchenette. The host and staff were very friendly and caring. Very conveniently located. I always stayed at Yamba enroute from Sydney to Brisbane, but this is my new home away from home. Quality products, furniture and linens. Everything was clean and... More

Ballina Palms truely has been reinvented as a boutique hotel by the current owner. With a not too over the top Balinese theme, brand new bathroom, kitchenette, furniture &... More

This motel is on a busy road within East Ballina, so at night (and even the day) you do hear the constant flow of traffic noise, it does settle down late at night and with the TV on, the noise of the traffic does "disappear" so to speak. The girls are extremly friendly and welcome you with open arms. They... More

This is a well maintained hotel with a nice ambience. Service was somewhat perfunctory but the room impressed. It had tasteful decor and fittings with attention to detail. I do like plantation shutters rather than blinds or curtains. The bed was comfortable and the room was cooled by a split system A/C. The bathroom taps were fickle but I eventually... More

Very pleasant motel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed for one night in a beautifully furnished room (Room 3) with quality fittings. I loved the plantation blinds. It was spacious, comfortable and clean.There's a lovely little Bali-style gazebo next to the pool where you can sit and have a drink after a day's driving. Asian sculptures and tall palms... More

I have been staying at another Hotel for 17 years and when new owners changed the quality standard, I began to search for a new place. Trip Advisor led me to Ballina Palms and I was welcomed by Sherry and Laurie, relief Managers, with warm and welcoming greetings. The room is truly outstanding and the comfort is what I look...
