We stayed at the Ramada for 4 nights over the Queen's Birthday long weekend in a spa suite. We were pleasantly surprised to discover we had a king sized bed in our room as well as a beautiful view over the Richmond River (complete with a balcony from which to view it).

The location of the Ramada is close to many lovely restaurants and right on the Richmond River. You can walk right along the river but, if you are hoping to go to the beach, you'll have to drive as it's not within walking distance.

The room had an adjoining laundry (which was free of charge) which meant we could wash and dry all of our dirty clothes and come home without any washing to do - a lovely touch.

There were a few things about the Ramada which weren't necessarily negatives, but things I found a little strange. Namely the 8 sunbeds in the pool area that overlook a giant area of concrete as well as the 'Best of Byron' brochure in our room which contained only the sports guide for Foxtel.

The late night dining menu, while cheap, consists of mostly Indian food and I found our bathroom (particularly behind the bathroom door) was dusty.

Minor drawbacks in what is a lovely hotel! Would recommend!

Our decision to stay at the Ramada Hotel & Suites Ballina was purely spare of the moment in that we did not pre book; we simply walked in & asked about their nightly tariff. It was a Sunday night & it was school holidays. We had checked out a number of other hotels in Ballina before calling into the Ramada but the school holiday 'tariff loading' made the other hotels really poor value for money. For only $25 more we got a King Spa Room with Balcony, River view & Parking at the Ramada. The room was modern, clean & spacious. The location is superb, the staff are friendly & the facilities terrific. We ate at 2 of the Ramada's restaurants (Mumtaj Indian for Lunch & La Cucina di Vino for dinner) & enjoyed a couple of cool soothing Ale's at The Point restaurant. When visiting Ballina again we would not stay anywhere else... Highly recommended!

Stopping over at Ballina on our trip was certainly worthwhile, a lovely town and the Ramada was a good choice. We booked a room overlooking the pool but from the 6th floor the view was of car parks and backs of buildings. The staff were very good and moved us to a lower level where we looked out at the pool. The restaurant in the hotel is very good with views over the river.

Room Tip: Either looking over the river or lower rooms looking out at the pool

The place looked lovely but the bed was such a let down really uncomfortable. Also the dining wait was soooo long we gave up and went to the RSL. The reason given was short on staff and the hotel has no control over the dining area as it does not own it!!!

I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and two children. Overall, the hotel was excellent. There was free off street parking, which is always a huge bonus with hotels.

The rooms are well appointed and perfectly clean. The shower was huge! Great amenities in the bathroom.

Kitchnette tidy and well stocked with utensils.

The restaurant and bar downstairs was very good and reasonably priced. We ordered room service one night, food delivered fast, hot and delicious.

The only real suggestion I could make is for thepool to be heated. We were there in winter but the weather was quite mild, but the water was too cold.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location to the main street of Ballina.
