My husband and I stayed just one night to break up a road trip heading north and enjoyed the warm hospitality and good service of all staff we encountered. At check-in, Nick was friendly and explained everything clearly, and then there is Zack, the beautiful tan and white collie who pops his head around the reception desk to say hello...

We were travelling to QLD after working all day so planned a stop at Ballina to sleep and refresh. There were not many Motels that offer late check in as we would be arriving after 10pm. After making the booking and letting them know the arrival time the management rang and told me reception would be closed at this time...

After a long days travel it was nice to stumble across this gem of a motel. From the start we were greeted with friendly service and the room we had was of the same high standard.

I stayed in unit 3 it really needs a new mattress. A real ridge on each side of the bed where people sleep!! Not comfy!! Pool not useable! Approached the owner? He said the pump isn't working (he said it had been fixed). No resolve on a hot day in Ballina!🙁

If only the filter had not broken down in such hot weather but unfortunately it did, Murphy's Law they say. Today it was back to it's pristine state and enjoyed by everyone all day. Thanks Ballina Pool Shop for a 24 hour turnaround, sorry Sue you were here on the day it broke down.

We booked this hotel room via mobile phone whilst driving on Pacific Hwy on Monday 28th November evening. Despite our late arrival, we were pleasantly surprised on arrival with a very clean and comfortable room. The hotel has a 1st class restaurant on-site. The meals were excellent. Overall, a very good hotel.

On arrival at the best western at Ballina we were welcomed as if we VIPs, given clear instructions where our accomodation was, the availability of the restaurant and pool. Even though the cheaper accomodation was close to the main road, it was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended to any weary travellers, bookings were not necessary.
