My partner and I were heading interstate and hadn't booked any accommodation on the way, as we just drove till we had enough. We pulled into here at nearly 10pm and the owner was very welcoming. They were even able to provide us with off street parking for our car and boat. The room was lovely and clean. Would gladly...

We stayed here for a sport tournament. For what we paid the place was very clean and tidy. Nice hotel with bistro across the road for dinner and located near the "big prawn" They are ground floor only apartments, we were unfortunate enough to have a neighbour who basically sat outside our door from 4pm until 11pm drinking and smoking...

AMAZING customer service! The owners are lovely! Rooms are quite nice. Bathrooms nice. Parking right out front. Food available but they're right across the street from the best seafood restaurant ever, bottle shop and a kid friendly pub. All the rooms look out onto the pool which was perfect for watching our ten year old splash about while we sat...

Stayed here whilst en route to Brisbane, unfortunately we got caught in cyclone Debbie! The lovely owners a couple from england originally were very friendly and had lots of info for us and answered a lot of questions! Rooms were very clean and cosey would definitely stay again if passing through Ballina! 10/10 ☺️☺️☺️

I called to make a booking directly with the Motel, I asked if they could meet the online price I had found on this site and they told me that they were not listed with Trip Advisor and the price I had given was wrong, after I tried to explain that trip advisor also acted like a comparison site, for...

Hi Radarh, unfortunately most accommodation providers do not like to be told how much to charge by potential guests. The price you told us you would pay, was a special deal offered by a particular online agency, where as they paid the shortfall of $5 (unbeknown to us ). Had you have phoned us back as suggested, we could of...

I stayed here 2 nights with my 2 children and found the room to be perfect for what we needed. Not modern but clean, spacious & comfortable. Kids had a ball in the saltwater pool. Will be our regular stop over place while traveling now. Lovely owners who are more than happy to accommodate your needs :)

Yesterday I booked spontaneously a room at the Fun 'n' Sun Ballina, and at the late evening they picked me up from the airport. It is a very nice and clean motel and family-conducted. Would come back at any time. Free parking, good wifi on the room and quiet. On the spacious room you have a water cooker, microwave, shampoo,...

We stayed for one night and the motel was clean, tidy, spacious, quiet, nice bathroom, parked our car at the front door. The 2 bedrooms were great for us and our 2 kids. Nice kitchen and eating area for breakfast. I would recommend this place.

I was uncertain about this overnight stay, but was pleasantly surprised. the room was large, clean, comfortable. Had all of the basics that you need for an overnight stay. With the highway bypass, it was quiet, but only 5 mins diversion, which made for a quick getaway the next morning. I would definitely stay there again.

Thank Steven M
