This was a very pleasant surprise after a poor experience further down the coast. The proprietors were very attentive and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. An added bonus is the RSL across the road - really good meals and they even do breakfast which I'm told is excellent value. Would definitely not stay anywhere else if in Ballina. Thank you to the hosts for the welcoming and follow up e-mails - a nice personal touch.

Lovely room. Everything perfect with the facilities. However there was a notice advising people not to sleep with the door or windows open because there had recently been an intruder. I don't know of many people who sleep with their door open, however this frightened our children. We could barely open our window even a fraction to allow the lovely fresh air in. A simple, cheap window lock would have allowed the window to be raised slightly but prevent access without freaking out the guests.

RSL across the road was brilliant. Fantastic venue for kids and adults alike with waterside views from the restaurant. Also an internal military museum was a nice touch.

As a frequent visitor to Ballina from Hobart I just can't say enough great things about the Heritage Inn. Consistently excellent rooms, staff outstandingly helpful & NOTHING is a problem. I challenge you to find a more comfortable bed.. * I had the misfortune of there being no room at the Inn & stayed at a so called International 5 star "Resort" more like Faulty Towers. Won't make that mistake again! Just book it.

Room Tip: Recommend upstairs facing the RSL - the sunsets and clouds are amazing - glass of wine optional.

Stayed one night on our way home from a very long bike ride. Rooms are very tastefully furnished, clean & roomy. Queen size bed with very comfy pillowtop, 2 seater sofa, nice bathroom. Extra touches like a TV programme in room (why can't other motels do this)? Ice cubes in freezer also a pleasant surprise. Motel is opposite RSL. If we are in Ballina again we would certainly stay at this motel.

Stayed here for a wedding over the weekend. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean and the hotel is in a good spot!

The lady at reception let us check in at 12 noon so we could get ready for the wedding in the room.

Well designed motel situated in the centre of Ballina, right across the road from the RSL and a one block walk to the Henry Rous pub. Rooms are large and modern. All of the fitments were in top condition and all worked properly. Some of the rooms had undercover parking. Tariff was good value and the people who run the place really made you feel like they wanted you to stay. Nothing was a problem. A far cry from many who find themselves running motels. I travel to Ballina often and will certainly be returing.

Room Tip: At the rear if you want undercover parking.
