            My wife and I enjoyed our stop-over here. We took a walk across the road and bought some fresh prawns and made our own dinner. The next day we took a pleasant drive to the Thursday Plantation (less than 20mins) and bought some items there. Great outdoor holiday.

            A nice spot to stay”

            The motel is well located in the same road of Ballina's CBD. Surrounded by two seafood shops and a tavern, the hotel offers close meals alternatives. To one side easy access to the Pacific motorway and a short drive to town, beaches and the alternative route to Lennox Heads and Byron Bay. Although the motel was built some decades ago, the gardens were well taken care of and the room was spotless. The kitchenette in the room will suffice for basic cooking. The BBQ was small but very clean and managed to coock a full dinner. Small but clean pool for the young members of the family.

            It might be budget but it is clean and comfortable”

            Pros: Clean and welcoming with obliging staff. Very quiet. All rooms have sliding door to large outside grassed area with picnic furniture and BBQ...... utensils supplied. The pool in this area is a good size. I have previously stayed with children and this area was great. Cons: For some travellers the fact that it is old might be a deal breaker but the rooms are being refurbished in turn.

            Excellent customer service. Owners take good care of their customers & actually answer promptly at reception & open early till late. Rooms are great size I even fit a portable cot in a queen room.Bed was comfortable. Was quiet motel (bonus for me with a baby) and clean pool was great feature (my kids were too cold to use it being from the north 😉-tho seen others use it which was nice). I recommend this hotel. Do need a transport however to get to around.Public transport available (i caught taxi into town was $15) but is bustop out front of motel.

            Value for money, large room, good bed

            We just needed somewhere to shower and sleep for an overnight stay near Lennox Head. Accommodation in Ballina is half the price and only a short coastal drive away. I had requested a quiet room and was allocated No 17 which was the furtherest from reception. It was perfectly quiet and very clean and comfortable. It looked a little larger than the other rooms and it was set up with disabled access. The bathroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. There was a recliner chair as well. An electric jug, microwave and fridge ensured you could self-cater if needed. There were a number of little touches that spoke to me of the care and pride that the cleaner took in his/her work, thus giving us a feeling of personalisation of this room for us. This was really great value for an overnight stay and the large grounds would be good for children to run around in as well. A range of in room meals were available too.

            Value accommodation with cooking facilities.”

            My wife and I enjoyed our stop-over here. We took a walk across the road and bought some fresh prawns and made our own dinner. The next day we took a pleasant drive to the Thursday Plantation (less than 20mins) and bought some items there. Great outdoor holiday.

            A nice spot to stay”

            The motel is well located in the same road of Ballina's CBD. Surrounded by two seafood shops and a tavern, the hotel offers close meals alternatives. To one side easy access to the Pacific motorway and a short drive to town, beaches and the alternative route to Lennox Heads and Byron Bay. Although the motel was built some decades ago, the gardens were well taken care of and the room was spotless. The kitchenette in the room will suffice for basic cooking. The BBQ was small but very clean and managed to coock a full dinner. Small but clean pool for the young members of the family.

            It might be budget but it is clean and comfortable”

            Pros: Clean and welcoming with obliging staff. Very quiet. All rooms have sliding door to large outside grassed area with picnic furniture and BBQ...... utensils supplied. The pool in this area is a good size. I have previously stayed with children and this area was great. Cons: For some travellers the fact that it is old might be a deal breaker but the rooms are being refurbished in turn.

            Excellent customer service. Owners take good care of their customers & actually answer promptly at reception & open early till late. Rooms are great size I even fit a portable cot in a queen room.Bed was comfortable. Was quiet motel (bonus for me with a baby) and clean pool was great feature (my kids were too cold to use it being from the north 😉-tho seen others use it which was nice). I recommend this hotel. Do need a transport however to get to around.Public transport available (i caught taxi into town was $15) but is bustop out front of motel.

            I was diassapointed in this motel. Overall it needs maintenance ie stained carpets, dripping shower. The rooms were not clean. There were dead coachroaches under furniture and in drawers. Kitchen cupboards and drawers need a good wipe down and clean.

            Value for money, large room, good bed

            We just needed somewhere to shower and sleep for an overnight stay near Lennox Head. Accommodation in Ballina is half the price and only a short coastal drive away. I had requested a quiet room and was allocated No 17 which was the furtherest from reception. It was perfectly quiet and very clean and comfortable. It looked a little larger than the other rooms and it was set up with disabled access. The bathroom was large and the bed was very comfortable. There was a recliner chair as well. An electric jug, microwave and fridge ensured you could self-cater if needed. There were a number of little touches that spoke to me of the care and pride that the cleaner took in his/her work, thus giving us a feeling of personalisation of this room for us. This was really great value for an overnight stay and the large grounds would be good for children to run around in as well. A range of in room meals were available too.
