Stayed in this hotel for a business trip and was underwhelmed by the hotel but charmed by the staff there.
The hotel itself is in a great location in Ballina beside the river in the small town.
On arrival the first obstacle is getting into the narrow car park entrance and finding a space. Once you have got over that in reception there will be a friendly welcome and a warm fire burning.
Amenity wise the rooms are ok, if dated and very warm. Towels and sheets could use a bit of fabric conditioner as they were a bit scratchy but the beds were comfortable enough. Shower was old fashioned but had good pressure. Rooms were clean and tidy.
Breakfast is fine and I ate out so didn't use the hotel restuarant.
Gym facilities are out of order at the moment due to recent floods.
All. Of the downsides were made up for the fact that everyone I encountered was friendly and happy to help. I would stay there again.
