The motel is located in the main street across the road from the RSL Club (good place to dine). Our room was very spacious and nicely fitted out. While located on the main street, there was no discernible traffic noise. Would stay here again on future trips north. Great café up the street for a relaxing and good breakfast.

Best Motel that my wife and I have stayed in. Could not fault the premises, staff and management. Only too eager to please. Rooms were immaculate and appealing. Large enough for a queen size bed which was comfortable, table and chairs and a comfortable two seater lounge. Extra pillows and blankets. Crockery other than supplied were given without question.

Ali was really lovely and helpful, room was neat and clean and quiet. Reasonably priced with free wi-fi. Conveniently located across the road from RSL club for meals. Only a few minutes off the highway.

Had an overnight stay at the Heritage in Ballina in a spa room. It's in a great location in town but no traffic noise . The room was very large and spotless. Great comfy bed. Highly recommended if you are heading to the beautiful north coast and into Ballina.

I booked in within half an hour of arriving at this hotel whilst on the way home to the Sunshine Coast from Sydney for a work trip. We were so happy with the accomodation which was beautiful & clean & very accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!

We loved the superb Georgian architecture (reminiscent of Sydney's Parliament House), with high ceilings, period doors and sash windows with furnishings appropriate for that architecture. (We were amazed to learn it was built in the 1990s.) Our room was spacious, the bed and sofa both very comfortable, the bathroom spacious (although a rail to hold onto might help with rather...

We had a deluxe family room and it was very comfortable and plenty of room for the four of us. The children slept in a separate bedroom, which was large. Facilities were wonderful, staff friendly, and the position across the road from Ballina RSL was very handy. The RSL food was superb and is highly recommended. We didn't have to... More

We stayed overnight with a car club group. Our room had everything we needed including a spa, which we enjoyed using. For breakfast, we used the fridge, toaster and kettle to make our own. The motel will provide breakfast if preferred.

We have been here a number of times, and keep coming back. It is close to the town centre and across from the RSL club, where you can get a great meal. The rooms are always spotlessly clean, and well presented. The staff are always helpful and friendly, so all in all the "complete package".
