Very cheap motel. So i wasn't expecting much. Rooms are freshly painted and very clean. Only problem they dont have enough parking spaces for the amount of rooms they have. But okay for an overnight stay.

Quite a long way from CBD of Ballina. Right on the busy highway (although lots of other motels are as well). Poorly maintained. Strange and difficult driveway configuration. Noisy air conditioners. Needs a major revamp. I was only there for a quick overnight stay but really can't recommend it.

The room was budget - an incredible overpowering smell of chlorine bleach in room. This did not go away - Turned on the air-cond - full all night it did not help . We were booked for 2N , and stayed only 1nite. I wanted to get an NCIS kit - and check if there had been a crime committed...

Room was in need of repair as was the rest of the accommodation, an unidentifiable odor was evident in all the units to the right of the laundry, we complained and were offered another room vacated by a lady even before she checked in but it was no better than the one we were given and definitely no cleaner, at...

We were on a week long all inclusive DBB plus tours and entertainment package. Good: The Tours were great and the tour driver /guide excellent. It is a beautiful country side. The food was fairly basic but tasty and there was plenty of it. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our transfers to and from the airport were...

We unfortunately booked on line so didn't see the place until arrival during a severe downpour. No receptionist, just a non-working machine on the wall. We found a phone and told our key was under the mat. Big bus blocking access to unit. No jug in room, walked back to phone to request a jug. Five hours later it was...

An interesting week, touring to different parts of northern NSW. Coach driver Joe made our week, very knowledgable, easygoing and a good driver. Staff at motel were very pleasant and our breakfast chef, Jamie was excellent, couldn't do enough for you. Motel was clean, comfortable and very roomy, a typical older style of motel. Our tour was made special by...

We stayed in this motel for 1 night. The decor is a bit dated as stated in previous reviews, however, the bed is comfortable (we booked the room with a king size bed) and the room is clean. It is walking distance to several good restaurants, the river and shopping centre. I didn't use the pool due to the weather...

the building was old and dated. but the room was clean and comfortable. the meals were varied and suitable for all tastes. excellent selection for breakfasts. By far the highlight of the trip for all visitors was the daily tour bus driver Annie. with her wonderful humour, her extensive knowledge of the areas we visited; her interesting stories of her...
