Stayed few nights. Check in easy and owners and staff very nice and friendly. Rooms clean enough although window surrounds mouldy. No fans in bathroom so surfaces get damp when shower used. Noise from adjoining rooms is loud. Overall stay I would rate this motel as average.

Good value for money. Friendly helpful owners. Very clean and comfortable. We stayed overnight with our two little dogs which were warmly welcomed. Small bathroom but quite adequate for a short stay. I thoroughly recommend his place. Good WiFi reception as well.

There are plenty of other places to stay in this area, I know because I travel through on a regular basis. Yes, there is another pet friendly place which is where I usually stay but I booked too late this time. Arrived on a Saturday night and was advised my room was gone, they had written down the wrong number for me. Was forced to turn around and return to Sydney. Incredible just how uncaring the Manager was, totally unhelpful and not interested in my situation.

We wanted a convenient, low cost overnight stop enroute to QLD from the Blue Mountains. This was perfect! Our little dog friendly room was neat and clean, and the service was wonderful. A simple key safe on the door worked well for our very late arrival and the owners (on separate phone calls) had both offered their assistance at any time should we have any trouble with access. We had no trouble of course with such clear prior communication. Thanks so much for making the end of our long trip up comfortable and restful. A good bed, hot shower, a cup of tea and a biccie and we’re on the road again with energy.

Warm, friendly welcome to us from Nicole and Erin at reception. Room was immaculately clean, hot water was instant---great shower. Bed soooo comfortable with lovely linen. Air con worked beautifully. The curtains actually fit the windows so no light woke us up AND a wall clock in the room -- no ticking .The room was freshly painted and tastefully decorated . Breakfast to the room at appointed time was a plus. We found Almare very quiet and all rooms are ground floor. Thank you Nicole and Erin for a lovely stay in Ballina--could not have asked for better hosts.
