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....

We were made to feel very welcome in this Motel. Our room was sparkling and beautifully fitted out. Reception - Lou - was friendly and helpful. All the furnishings were in excellent condition and good quality toiletries in the bathroom.

Clean, great, Bali inspired motel. All the little extras, kitchenette, huge towels, great shower. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Planned to stay for 3 nights, added an extra day. I'll be back for sure.

Whilst this motel is a little out of the way Leanne runs a beautiful quite environment. The rooms are crisp and clean and nothing is too much trouble. A little drive to the centre of town for a multitude of food and beverage options. I will stay here every year if "my" room is available!!! Wonderful place to stay.

Quality all the way. All the little touches of a five star motel, plus the added bonus of a kitchenette. The host and staff were very friendly and caring. Very conveniently located. I always stayed at Yamba enroute from Sydney to Brisbane, but this is my new home away from home. Quality products, furniture and linens. Everything was clean and...

This motel is on a busy road within East Ballina, so at night (and even the day) you do hear the constant flow of traffic noise, it does settle down late at night and with the TV on, the noise of the traffic does "disappear" so to speak. The girls are extremly friendly and welcome you with open arms. They...
