I would recommend to anyone visiting Ballina. We stayed in Ballina as a stop-over for visiting Byron Bay. We visited Byron Bay on a... More

Room were very clean well laid out. The staff were friendly and available. It has a very relaxed setting for a parent escape weekend away. For us being away from the busy part of the main shopping area was great would happily stay here again.

A very comfortable and well looked after motel. The owner takes the time and effort to make accommodation very comfortable. A good price range as well for the traveller, especially wanting a coastal escape as in my case from Brisbane. The motel is well situated being close to nearby North Creek and bicycle paths to the beach and town centre.... More

Whilst this motel is a little out of the way Leanne runs a beautiful quite environment. The rooms are crisp and clean and nothing is too much trouble. A little drive to the centre of town for a multitude of food and beverage options. I will stay here every year if "my" room is available!!! Wonderful place to stay.
