Went here with my family, very good $10.00 meals. Friendly staff and meals came out very quickly. Would highly recommend to anyone who want a a casual meal and a few drinks. Easy parking at the door as well. We did not stay in motel section only had a meal here.

If your over paying for a plate of spinch leaves with a side of steak in over priced cafes this pub has the best $10 lunches and on weekends as well. A good selection for the $10 menu with free choice of sauces. A tasty salad and crunchy chips or vege if that is your choice goes with the meal... More

Straight to the point, if you want a good meal then try this venue. Plenty of $10 options on the menu. I had the salt and pepper squid with chips and salad, very tasty. Plenty on the plate. Decor simple, but functional. Location good, with adequate parking. Open air, with covering in case of rain. View of river street, watch... More

I decided I want a wholesome meal for dinner so I headed to the Slipway Hotel. It serves typical pub food with some really good specials. I opted for a 300g sirloin steak with mash and veges and it was just what I wanted. Food was cooked the way I liked it. Service was quick and sitting near an outside... More

We didn't plan our journey well enough to give great thought about where we were staying on our road trip and this was during a busy weekend for tourists, Slipway Hotel Motel had a vacancy. Hooray! We booked online from around the corner but when we got there, we couldn't find the reception, just the disheveled backyard of the hotel.... More

This hotel has street frontage so you can watch the world go by. Warm day so sitting in front outdoor area with the sea breeze was lovely. Several $10 lunch options are great value. Rump, chicken schnitzel etc all served with salad & chips and choice of sauce. Quick, cheap, easy & relaxed. Would definitely go back.

My room was well appointed in a block behind the hotel toward the river. It was quiet and a short walk to the shops I wanted to visit. Clean. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant. I chose the Atlantic salmon, which was nicely cooked..

The rooms were fairly clean. They could do with a major clean, spring clean. The air condition was way to noisy. We couldn't have it on because it kept us awake. The unit could do with a ceiling fan or two. But the thing that annoyed us most is there were only two pillows and they were both about 10cm... More

The Hotel is in a great location. Room was OK but a little dated. The restaurant at the Hotel had a substantial menu however during our stay the deep fryer was broken which limited food choices. Hotel is centrally located in the CBD and close to restaurants, shops and the river.

I stayed in ballina due to high prices in Byron, but should have stayed somewhere else as this place was both worn and in a dodgy street. You check in through a bar and the wifi is horrible. The lights in the rooms does not make a nice atmosphere and I actually don't think the owners have put much effort... More
