Great place for our stay in Ballina. Rooms were spotless and well set out. The wi-fi worked well and quick. Bed was comfortable. We received fresh towels every day and they also washed the dishes. Car parks are under cover and enough room to get luggage out. Good facilities BBQ, Pool, and table tennis, large grass area for kids to play. Would like to see double power points, so that lap-tops and phone chargers could be plugged in. We loved our stay here.

We had a single night in Ballina to attend a funeral the next day. This is an "older style" motel but was perfectly adequate and very reasonably priced. Most rooms are well set back from the main road towards the back of the large property making it very quiet. The setting is very nice with plenty of outdoor space with a large grassed area and pool in the middle. The rooms open onto a verandah overlooking this area with chairs and picnic tables to sit out or for breakfast. The rooms were very neat and clean. The motel owners are friendly and offered to collect us from the airport and drop us back if we needed a lift. We would like to say a special thank you to the lovely Julie who provided us with a place to change after our funeral (well after we'd already checked out).

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms at the back of the motel property as these are the quietest.
