The 2nd time I have stayed at the Best Western Ballina and both times I have had excellent service, brilliant meals. The rooms are clean and tidy well appointed, no traffic noise. The staff in the restaurant and hotel are exceptionally pleasant and well mannered and very professional in their manner. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

For what it is, it's a nice little area and motor inn. The service was prompt and informative. The only let down is the free wi-fi which you had to re-sign back into every 15 minutes or so. But it's free so I probably shouldn't complain! Despite having an on-site restaurant they didn't deliver hot breakfasts which I was a...

Service can make or break an experience. We were more welcomed by the gorgeous dog than the owner. He was a very grumpy person & made the experience unpleasant. The room was good. Only downside was the built up soap scum on the shower glass, it wasn't a good look. Bed was comfortable. Convenient location. The place is looking a...

Evening Kas, I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations. You are right we did not offer room service breakfasts while the cricket team was with us due to kitchen staffing logistics and public holidays, but we did offer all guests the opportunity to come to the restaurant and either order from the a la carte menu...

We stayed for two nights at the Ballina Island Motor Inn, and were pleased to find it provided spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation. The facilities were certainly adequate for our needs, and the owners and staff were all most friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed there longer. Staff great... room spotlessly clean. Complimentary laundry services. Great night sleep. Could not have asked for more. We stayed at a different place in Port Macquarie the night before for $25 less and it was dated and filthy with sticky surfaces and a strong smell of deodorizer. So...

My partner and I spent a few nights here for a little getaway as we love the area. Great central location close to places to eat and shops. Basic rooms but we found they had everything we needed for us.

We stayed in the family room, which is a great size for 2 adults and 2 toddlers. Di and Nick made our family feel very welcome and ensured our stay was comfortable. We especially loved the pool (great for little toddlers) and the coloring in books/pencils offered to the kids at dinner. We will definitely be back. You will not...
