I found my stay at Ballina Palms boutique very very disappointing. As a traveller I expect to feel welcome and treated with courtesy when checking into a motel after driving over 9 hours in a day. The service that was offered to be was unfriendly, not to mention that I paid top dollar to have a room with a door...

Easy to find but appalling customer service. There were large gaps under the door to the room from outside which I did not like, I used some clothes to to prevent creepie crawlies / snakes from getting in. Pool was unusable, looked like it had not been cleaned for weeks. On arrival we were asked whether we would like pay...

With christmas planned at Ballina with the folks and no room at their "inn", we found ourselves needing a place to lay our weary heads for two nights over Christmas. Mum (who lives in Ballina) started going around the various accommodation spots a good three months out, but many places had minimum stays, and we only wanted two nights. But...

Excellent hotel which happened to have a spare studio room available when we pulled up unannounced. Very affordable for this time of year ($165 for the night). Room was very comfortable, air-conditioned, immaculate and convenient. Would recommend.

We decided to spend the night in Ballina without planning it and felt very lucky to find a room in this nice motel. Really clean, lots of charm, quiet, comfy and cosy. Has a pool, air conditioning, queen size beds... We now plan to come back.

During our east-coast travels, this was the only motel we stayed in, and I can say that it was very good. It was clean, and the decor was nice and modern. The shower was exceptionally good! 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...

I just love it when I select my accommodation based on Trip Adviser Reviews and they match perfectly. I can honestly say the Reviews were spot on and I was very happy with my choice. In this case I wanted to stay for a couple of nights in Ballina to attend the Prawn Festival. Ballina Palms Boutique Motel was just...

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....
