We had our wedding here on the 29.04.17. Dianne and Nick are not only friendly but are very trustworthy, professional and deliver exactly what they tell you they will.

The global central reservations clerk fibbed to me when I called it and said it was full." You tricked me once, won't let us trick me twice."(Kelis)But when I called the...

I stayed here as an overnight stay. I chose the hotel as Best Westerns tend to have a good reputation. The people were friendly though I didn't like being greeted by a large dog as I checked in, particularly as I have a child with a severe dog allergy. The room was a good size and layout, though the bathroom...

During the Easter weekend I had the pleasure of staying at Best Western West Ballina . The hosts were warm and generous with their time . The rooms were spacious , clean and quiet. It was an ideal 30 minutes drive from Byron Bay for Bluesfest. I recommend this motel to anyone 😎

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while helping family move house. Our room was clean and quiet and the bed very comfortable. We didn't use any of the facilities as we had no time. Would certainly stay here again.
