We pre checked in so on arrival just a couple of Q & A s,
picked up our keycard and off to our studio, same as the last times we were here
Thanks to Diana and Rodger who were very helpful booking, and during our stay.

We stayed a week early March so the weather was just ok but our Position, Views,
and friendly Staff made it worthwhile, its been a few years since our last stays
but everything was familiar and the central location was perfect,

The cleanliness of our studio was just like previous stays perfect,
the pool was a delight when the Sun stayed out lazing in comfort on the lounges.
The Laundry is in the vestibule between 2 studios, with clean washing and drying machines and Ironing gear.

A Door shutting noise has always been there was due to sharing a small vestibule with one other studio the doors will slam If you let them
It just takes Simple courtesy and Nouse
to realise the solution
just hold the doors as it closes including your studio door, Or Slam to return Same.


The front Desk staff were always very polite, and helpful,
as were the housekeeping staff as usual.
undercover parking was a breeze i secured a single walled space 6 out of 7 days
for my Sahara, nice safe feeling.

Sunday were were treated to a Picturesque assortment of sailing craft
as they tacked up and back on the River
as Sailors, we had a great vantage point from our balcony
watching as small and larger sailboats fought for the wind advantage
while we ate and drank most of the sunny afternoon
the Perfect ending to our enjoyable week here.

We frequently visited N.Rivers Seafoods. for their Delicious fare,
its still constant and has not disappointed us for many years now,
enjoying seafood on our Balcony really made our.940k round trip worth it.

We visited all our usual places, especially the breakwall,
and RSL club we found the traffic and Parking frustrating
but it shows Ballina is very popular, the locals are still friendly
and greet you while walking. we found the staff in shops also polite, friendly.

We will return again to this Great Resort for the relaxation, service, facilities, position, and friendly locals.

Room tip: Always Pre book and request, and Dont expect to much. the booking staff try Hard.

Hello there,
This was so lovely to read, thankyou kindly for sharing your experience and insightful feedback. We are delighted you had such a wonderful stay with us and enjoyed those stunning views! I will be sure to pass your thanks onto Diana and Roger and the rest of the team. It sounds like you truly had the perfect Ballina experience. We agree Northern Rivers Seafood is fantastic! The break wall is indeed a beautiful spot to visit. We are also looking to solutions regarding the door sound when it shuts. We hope you had safe travels home and can't wait to welcome you back again soon. We'll look out for that super Sahara! Have a great day.

Our 2 one night stays were a treat in this luxurious hotel suite. Its location by the river is perfect and romantic. It has a large swimming pool with comfy salon seats and lounges and an excellent restaurant also on the river side. Fabulous!

Very comfortable suite with a great view of the river. Very friendly staff too.

The only annoyance was the room situation. You enter a locked door which leads into a tiny hall with 2 other doors inside. However, the outside door is extremely noisy , so u can hear when your neighbour comes in or goes out. Very clunky loud doors. surely they must be aware of this as i could hear other doors make the same noise on my way to the lift. Great hotel except this annoyance.

Hello there,
Thankyou so much for taking the time to share your experience with us! We appreciate the kind comments and insight. We would recommend booking a 1 Bedroom Poolside Suite which is a single door access, this might be more suitable for your next stay. We hope this helps!
We hope you had safe travels home and looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.

A totally beautiful visit to this hotel. The view from our room over the river perfect. The hotel’s restaurant was relaxing . Had a couple of drinks upon our arrival and then dinner. Service was good but the food even better, love the NT burra. The walk along the river in the morning is a must. Highly recommend this hotel, we also went at the right time of the year as the school holidays were over and it was quiet and the weather was still perfect.

I booked this hotel because I wanted a water view and very few places in Ballina seem to offer this. We booked a river view room with balcony. I requested a high floor hoping this would increase our chances of getting a nice view. On check in the receptionists noted we had requested this with an odd tone as though it was an entitled thing to do. We happened to stay during downpour rain. Unfortunately this meant we stayed in the room more than planned and a Riverview would have been appreciated. While the river could be viewed from standing at the window of our room, the only chairs were on the outside balcony in the rain so the only place to sit in the room was on the bed. From the bed the only view was a white wall and a drainpipe. Many other rooms had open river views so it would seem my request led them to give us a less desirable room. The room itself was clean and had a very large bathroom with spa bath, but no space in the room for seating. A convenient laundry was in the foyer/entrance to the room adjoined with the next room. Laundry soap sachet was provided in the room. The restaurant in the lobby had fantastic river views so we enjoyed a lengthy lunch here at a table right by the corner window. The food and service were fantastic here unlike the adjacent hotel

Room tip: Do not request a higher floor. Staff seem to enjoy giving you a worse room if you dare request it.

Dear Suzanne,
Thankyou for sharing you experience with us, we really appreciate the feedback. We are so sorry you didn't get the stay you had hoped for. We always love the opportunity to meet requests and please always feel free to do so with us. Unfortunately when the hotel is full allocating rooms to requests can be tricky. We hope we get the chance to impress you next time.
