“Good budget alternative”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Good $ value for an overnight stay. Property dated and in need of some updating, small compact room; small bathroom. A little noisy. "Tight" carpark but accessible. Friendly and helpful reception staff.

Room Tip: request room at rear of property

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

at the end of the long long drive from Sydney! Very reasonable --- even free breakfast was provided when we stayed there! A very cheerful welcome on a Saturday afternoon. A roomy and bright unit - nice cream- painted brick walls and very soundproof ---- with very comfortable beds and the best shower!!! When we asked Jill for a recommendation for somewhere good to eat, she pointed us down the road to the Ballina RSL/Bowling Club - so great not to get in the car again and a short walk which we really needed. As I'm a retiree I've eaten my share of 'Roasts of the Day' ---- but never have I had such a beautiful roast pork dinner - I wanted to adopt the chef!!!! A good sleep and a lovely continental breakfast sent us happily on our way to Queensland. We'll certainly be back. Many thanks to a delightful couple who run a great motel.
