super clean, well maintained and modern. And beds are comfy. Owners Ali and Brendan very nice, even though we were late - great overall. Just across the road from the Ballina RSL, which has some really nice meals, but be there by 2030 for last orders.

Would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for somewhere to stay in Ballina. Great experience from the lady in the reception when we arrived right through to our beautifully clean and neat room. Also has RSL straight across the road which has really great food.

Only an overnight stay while travelling, but very well located to the town for shops and restaurants. Comfortable room and pleasant reception. Very good meal at the RSL which was just across the road.

We have just spent a night at this lovely motel. We were warmly welcomed by John at Reception who at our request gave good advice as to an eating place – just a brief walk along the street from the motel. Our room further back from the street was quiet and could be well-darkened at night to induce a good... More

Getting tired on our drive from Singleton, NSW to Brisbane, Queensland, we stopped at Ballina. Looked on TripAdvisor, and liked the favourable reviews of the Ballina Heritage Inn, so we checked in. Our allocated room, Room 15 on the first floor, was fitted with a spa. (We had the choice of a "shower only" room.) The room itself looked to... More

Couldn't of asked for a better experience. Staff were lovely and very helpful. The room was large and the shower was amazing!! Stayed here for Splendour in the grass and the location was perfect. Nice and quiet with plenty of great meal options and atms just up the road. Will definitely be staying here next time round :)
