We arrived to be told we hadn't booked correctly by a person who didn't even take booking ! We had contacted on at least 4 occasions advising our requirements! Very poor service will vote with my feet and not go back !! Suggest you try somewhere else although the rooms were immaculate !!

Recently we stayed at the Ballina Palms Motel, we have travelled to NSW from Queensland on many occasions and found the motel the perfect place to have an overnight stay, the rooms are clean, beautifully decorated, the rates are very reasonable, the hostess Leanne could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. I would recommend this motel to all... More

Needing a break away. Choose this absolutely great motel. Spotless, Very tasteful décor different in each unit. Large rooms, comfortable beds very well equipped kitchen, quality toiletries in the bathroom. Good sized outdoor pool with modern nice loungers. A big surprise as we travel a lot and rate this motel as the best we have ever stayed in.

Mrs BobtheOzzy is a tough judge indeed but she declared this to be "the best motel we have ever stayed in." I must agree with her! We were in room 12, which would currently one of the best having recently been well renovated. Contact the owner however because others have been renovated and there is an obvious plan to refresh...

This hotel was rated #1 by TripAdvisor and rightfully so. We requested the disabled access room and weren't disappointed. We had room #14. The room was very comfortable, tastefully decorated with attention to detail and with ample room for my wife's walker. The room was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and the linen was first class. Lovely kitchenette with... More

Stayed here on our journey from Sydney to Noosa, and it far exceeded our expectations. The place was immaculately clean, all equipment was up to date and the bathroom was beautiful (not old like in many motels). Furthermore this hotel was GREAT value for money for a family, as we only needed one room for 5 people and the total... More

We had room 1 I think and it was absolutely beautiful. Good price also and a great location close to the Main Street just a short drive. Beautiful slightly rustic/exotic furnishings and very clean. At the end of this street there's a park bench where we sat and watched all the water birds and Dolphins swim right by with no... More

We have stayed on a number of occasions while visiting family in the area. Smallish hotel with reasonable size rooms and nicely furnished, well maintained with very friendly and accommodating service. Will stay whenever in the area.

The room was lovely and clean. Beautifully decorated and has everything you need. With TV, aircon, kitchenette, robes, tea, coffee, minibar and plenty of toiletries we felt everything had been thought of. The lady who greeted us was friendly and approachable. There was also a nice pool, which if the weather had been warmer we would have used.
