We stayed overnight here two nights ago, two rooms, four of us travelling together. Couldn't fault the place, the manager and his wife are friendly and welcoming, the motel is directly opposite the RSL so we walked across the road for dinner there, which was really nice. There re also lots of great cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance...

Unfortunately it was only for 1 night.....I wanted to stay longer but our schedule didn't permit us. We found the owners very friendly and the room was beautifully clean and really comfortable. Free WIFI and location was perfect right across from the Ballina RSL and the Richmond River. The Pool was great too. I would definitely will stay there again....

Our family took a quick and unexpected trip to Ballina and found the family room in the Ballina Heritage Inn, hugely spacious, clean and bright and as a bonus was very economically priced. Right next restaurants and the lovely boardwalk on the river. We will definitely be choosing to stay here again next time. Highly recommended.

Extremely clean and great central location to shops and cafes. Breakfast not included but there are plenty of places to choose from in the town. RSL Club just across the road if you want a surprisingly delicious and inexpensive meal and I believe if you're in Ballina over the weekend you can even get breakfast there too. Lovely river walk...

A really nice place to stay. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, and as stated in the description. I found it to be a beautifully kept room, right across from the RSL, which was also great for food. I was very impressed with this hotel. The room and bathroom were large and immaculate. There was tea and coffee...

Friendly staff. Very clean , comfortable room. Surprisingly quiet as we were on the end near the the side street. Lovely to be able to walk across the road and walk along the river. Had a great meal at the RSL.
