            One of the best stays i booked the apartment for my disabled mother and my 87 year old grandmother and myself to attend my sisters wedding, from the moment we arrived the staff we so helpful getting us checked in quickly and helped us to our room.The cleanliness and quality of the apartment was apparent the moment we walked in my grandmother still is telling people that it was the most wonderful trip she's ever had.The staff were always around if needed and weren't the in your face annoying type you sometimes you get on longer stays.The pool and fitness areas were well maintained and very accessible.Even being on the river the noise from street bellow and people leaving the river walking tracks was minimal.I would highly recommend staying at the Riverside Holiday Apartments to anyone thinking of staying in the Ballina area.

            Spacious, well-appointed, comfortable 2BR apartment with good views of the Richmond River. All mod cons included. Close to clubs and shops. Access to internet was disappointingly expensive. Apartment tariff was a bit steep when compared with similar accommodation in other countries, but would like to stay again during off-peak times in the warmer months.

            Won't stay again. ”

            Upon arrival the reception was closed and no staff could be found. I had to google the number and rang three times before a young kid answered. He was eventually able to give me the phone number for the manager and he gave me instructions on how to obtain the keys from the safe. A simple email would have saved all these issues. When we returned to the hotel at 11.30pm the front door opened without a card but the foyer and hallway were in complete darkness. The room was ok but in need of a renovation. The toilet ran all night and the bed was old and uncomfortable. Upon checkout the reception was still closed and now the front door was locked. We had to remove the car from the carpark and then get back to the reception via the carpark entry. We would never stay here again. Possibly the worst motel we have stayed at. Plenty of nicer motels in Ballina to stay. Plus the room overlooked a carpark instead of the river.

            It was a terrific weekend away. The unit was incredibly spacious with quality features and the foyer was where breakfast and dinner was had and a coffee during the day. Very conveniently located and reasonably priced meals. All in all a great stay that we will certainly do again.

            OK slightly run down, nice but more like 3 star”

            location, size of 2 bed apartment , parking

            Nice stay though few things were dissappointing. Asked for 3 bed place, got a 2bed plus a hotel room without consultation. RAir Con didnt work in one of the rooms. The reception is only open standard hours during the day and need key to access pool/gym so can only really use it during day. Linen was old and a bit average, the 2 bedroom apartment was a lot nicer than the hotel room but all could benefit from a freshen up. beds were like trampolines prob in need of updating. Very noisy from band at pub on fri/sat nights in room at the back. Nice place though def 3 stars motel kind of quality. if 4.5 stars is what you are after you will be dissappionted. Rooms not serviced at all during your stay which was fine just would have been nice to know thats the type of place it was ealier in the booking process .

            Central location, clean room

            Reception closes at 5.00pm & if you need assistance you have to wait until the next morning. Most of the 2 bedroom apartments are not air conditioned. Foxtel in my room didn't work. I couldn't access the pool as it was after 5.00pm & I couldn't get a key as reception was closed.

            location

            Room was ok, but not terribly clean. Got woken at 6am every morning by trucks emptying large industrial bins out the back. The cleaners came at odd times - 7am one morning and if we weren't ready for them they would just leave clean towels
