We had a lovely overnight stay here, the room was spotless and very comfortable. Our balcony faced the river and we enjoyed relaxing afternoon drinks out there. The staff were very friendly and efficient and made feel welcome. We enjoyed a fabulous breakfast in the restuarant before departing. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We requested a room away from the restuarant and large fans at ground level.

The is a modern comfortable hotel in a great location in a lovely town and it does most things well. It has been my preferred stopover on the coast. This last visit midweek in low season has changed my view. My concern was the response to a simple request for a 3 hour extention to the 11am checkout. Of the many hotels I stay in, my experience is such a request is granted gratis if the room is free. Sometimes the hotel will offer less than the request but try to be helpful. Ramada Ballina policy is to charge by the hour from the 11am checkout time. That might be OK but the charge I was quoted (after the guy on the desk checked with the back office) was 150% more than the hourly rate of the standard tariff. 3 extra hours was going to add 40% to the bill! I checked out for the last time at 11am. Also Wi Fi is available but not free (not disclosed) and all credit cards are surcharged (disclosed). No problem if the business is paying but it is for the private customer.

Room Tip: Go for the river view rooms

Dear pklein-47, thank you for taking the time to submit your review and for acknowledging our lovely town. Late checkouts are granted subject to availability, as you mentioned. We offer a generous 11am checkout as standard, free of charge and subsequently charged at the standard hourly rate thereafter. I noticed your request was for Friday afternoon which generally isn’t considered as midweek. We do try to accommodate wherever possible, however sometimes to meet a request some costs may be involved. I sincerely apologize this was not to your satisfaction and I hope you may return when next passing through our area. Kind regards Ben Dargie Hotel Manager

I have stayed here several times on business and each time it has been a pleasure. If you can get one of the spa rooms overlooking the river for a superb relaxing view you will not be disappointed. Strolling by the river in the morning watching the pelicans is a really chilled out way to start a day, The adjoining restaurant is good and the Hotel staff couldn't be more helpful.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the river

My wife & I stayed here with friends as we travelled down the coast. We booked a Penthouse Suite & it was very good with seperate lounge / TV areas. The bedrooms in the Penthouse had their own large bathrooms & the view out over the river was great too.

The hotel was easy to find & the underground parking was very good.

There is a very pleasant walkway down by the riverside & the main town area is just a stroll away. This is a great place to stay in Ballina & if I was going back to the area I would certainly look to stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Ramada Ballina Byron on the weekend. We had a Spa room overlooking the river, just beautiful! While sipping champers we were delighted to see dolphins playing in the river right in front of our balcony, then the most glorious sunset. We ate at The Point - the onsite restaurant that evening and even though the restaurant was very busy we were given great service and the food was to die for. Quite and peaceful we would recommend the Ramada to anyone wanting or needing to stay in the Byron area. Beautiful property and close to the airport.

Room Tip: Loved the river view from the Spa Room
