In all motels stopped at, this motel is THE best. The fastidious owner ensures EVERYTHING is to the highest standard. All inclusions are of the highest standard. Cleanliness, presentation and décor brands this establishment as one in a million.

This motel was a real surprise. It was nothing like any motel I have ever stayed in, and better than most 4 star hotels. From the quality fittings and furnishings, to the little things like the extra towels in the bathroom, and pool towels in the drawer. It was just so nice. A shame that the night we stayed there...

Leanne has once again added her professional touch to the rooms. They are unique. On entering, you are transported to another tropical country. Rooms are quiet, beautiful pool with a large covered outdoor area next to pool. Ideal for a drink and catch-up with family and friends. Kitchen has everything you would need, we love staying here on our journey...

5 adults stayed in the family room and we didn't feel confined. Room was clean with ample storage and serviced daily during the Easter public holidays. The motel had an eastern flair with a huge pergola allowing us to spread out and relax in comfortable surrounds. The clean, well maintained pool provided a soothing bonus to our stay after long...

We visits with our three adult kids. We were not keen on squeezing into one room, so we took the two adjoining rooms offered. It worked well, we had a bed for everyone and two bathrooms. We chuckled at the tiny pool, until the kids jumped in and declared it was wonderful. The outdoor lounge was a delightful place to...

Off the highway and so close to the river and beach. A fair walk to the main street. Management seemed tired and stressed (we didn't need to know all their problems). Breakfast delivered was quite good. Nice comfy rooms typical of east coast motels. Except that the room walls are so thin with no insulation, the 'rowdy' couple next door...

Very pleasant motel - I stayed here for two nights, and would have happily stayed for longer. The room was large, well decorated, very clean and tidy, with a very comfortable bed. The motel is easy to find, and an easy drive to the beaches and shops.

We recently spent a weekend in Ballina. We stayed at the Ballina Palms Motel and were delighted with the experience. The room was a good size and very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
