The rooms are very well presented and in a very good location and the family room allowed us to put the kids to bed and parents relax. The hotel in generally laid out the same as most road side motels with cars parked outside the ground floor rooms etc. however the quality of the decor and finishes really sets this...

We stayed here for a night and it was great. It was within walking distance to all we wanted to do. We would come back next time we're in Ballina for sure. The family room was spacious and tidy beyond compare!

We stayed here on an overnight stop and were surprised by the roomy interior. Lots of space to move around and the bathroom was large as well. Decorated in an old world style to suit the name. The bed was comfortable and it was very clean. Parking a little tight as some people didn't park within the lines. Just across...

We had a spotless well appointed room with a very comfortable. The people a reception were very helpful. The motel is located two minutes walk to the river, RSL and town centre. We were going to a wedding so arrived early (10AM) but they had no hesitation offering us a room. Great value.

The location is excellent within easy walking distance to the river walkway, restaurants and RSL. The rooms are large, well equiped (large flat screen Samsung TV, good ceiling mounted aircon unit, good sized shower with decent shower head etc.) and very clean. The decor/furniture continues the Heritage theme and is in good condition. There is a small swimming pool in...

Rustic hotel that while it doesn't offer the modernisation of bigger hotels it does offer charm and hospitality. The rooms are not the biggest but they are clean, comfortable and cosy (although 2 towels for 2 people would've been better than 1 😀). The hotel is central to town but if you're looking for river views then this isn't the...
