“Clean, Fresh well appointed rooms. We will stay here from now on when in Ballina.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

WE Had 3 rooms in this very new motel and all found this motel/ suites to be very clean and tidy. We asked for a river view and we got it. We asked to be up a few floors and we also got that, no problem, happy to help you! The staff are very friendly and we could not find any faults with the facility itself.
The only downside to this stay was that the restaurant service both for dinner and breakfast was extremely slow.
This was our only negative, they need extra staff!!! The food was great! The suite rooms have cooking facilities and not a bad kitchen, with the usual appliances you can expect in a holiday vacation space. Frypan, pots and pans, and not much else. No dishwasher, but there is a laundry which could be a bonus.
All the views covering many outlooks where lovely. The river at Ballina is pleasant to look at anytime and in any weather.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the water as the road side can be noisy on weekends due to...

I stayed in this hotel for one night a while back but as I was looking for accomodation in this area for another trip I thought of this hotel, as I thought it was great. The bed was wonderful and the size & layout of the apartment was wonderful, and I love the bifolds. Hope to stay at this hotel again sometime soon.

Nice rooms, fairly well laid out, and nicely furnished, with many having a small balcony (with table and chairs) overlooking the river. Particularly liked the fact that the bathrooms include a small spa bath (big enough for two adults, if they're friendly) - the shutters above the spa, that open onto the bedroom, are a nice touch too.

Easy to access undercover parking (signs to parking entrance not easily seen though), and the staff very helpful and friendly.

On down side, other than the restaurant menu, there was no services booklet in my room, and the TV remote was missing (was easy to get new one from reception).

stayed only 1 night, and disappointed for a place claiming to be a 4.5 star location. Check in staff were rude, literally accusing us of going to do a runner, that's why they need a credit card imprint. More tactful would have been nice. Room clean and nice, but very small considering what the pictures looked like. Meal was very disappointing, and even though we put in a complaint about the food nothing was done to rectify the problem. In general was a very ordinary experience for the cost to stay. I don't believe I would recommend this to the average person.

Room Tip: I'd look around before spending a lot of money to stay at this location.

We had a one night stay at the Ramada, Ballina as a stopover on our journey to Queensland. We were given a room with a kitchenette, laundry and probably the biggest bathroom I have seen in a hotel. The pricing was reasonable and the location fantastic. Rooms are nicely furnished. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool - we loved the fact that we had a kitchenette and laundry.
