I doubt there have been any renos on this place since it was built circa 1973 (I'm guessing). Always love the sanitised paper band on the toilet. Our room wasnt serviced for two of our three day stay. For the price it wasn't bad. Wifi was either really slow or non-existant. It was the cheapest of its class in Ballina... More

I had a large family room - q/s plus 2 singles. The q/s bed was very comfy. Table and chairs - enough for a family of 4. The décor in the bathroom was a bit dated - but hey it is a bathroom, not the lounge room. The hot water supply was good, as was the internet wifi. Parking was... More

One of the most comfortable motels we have ever stayed in. Thank you so much Kirsten and Tim. You were there when we needed you. Otherwise you let us do our thing. We really enjoyed ourselves. Beds very comfortable and the use of the barbecue was great. It was also very quiet. Eunice and Tony (Sydney)

Stayed here for one night while driving up the east coast, the motel room was clean had all we needed even a kitchenette, you could order dinner or breakfast which would have been bought to your room, we didn't use this service so cannot comment on it.

Stayed 2 nights for a road trip break. A large family room for the 2 of us as we wanted a twin room. Roomy, clean, comfortable and had everything we wanted. Close to shopping centres, no road noise which was amazing. Tiny shower room but who sleeps in the shower. We were very happy.
