I was really impressed with this place. We were passing through and only stayed one night. The young lady on reception also runs the bar and the restaurant and probably a few other tasks, so professional and capable. We almost went out into Ballina to eat dinner and that would have been a huge mistake. The spacious restaurant here has carpet floors and table cloths, fresh/new modern decor and gentle music. The chef and his menu were first class, he made flawless mains and desserts. I seriously can't see how anywhere else in Ballina could have matched our dinner experience.

We have stayed at the Islander Resort and Conference centre many times in the past 3 years. From the moment we arrive we are made to feel welcome. The rooms are spacious, bright and immaculately clean. The beds are comfortable and all the ammenities you could ask for are available here, or close by. If you are considering a trip to the Ballina / Byron area contact Di and Nick and their team as you are guaranteed of a good time.

I stayed in one of the Queen Spa rooms which was very generous in size, well appointed, comfortable and clean. The restaurant was great for dinner and breakfast and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed 2 nights, and after 1st day of being out and about, we came back to unmade beds, unwashed glasses/ cups and unchanged towels. If guests are required to wash their own cups/ glasses, please provide washing liquid and utensils. If we need to make our beds, tell us they're not serviced. Tea & coffee making supplies not replenished either..... We were staying there to attend my Dad's funeral, and this was a downer. Pretty disappointed to be honest.

Response from Dianne Walford, Owner at Ballina Byron Islander Resort and Conference Center
Responded 3 weeks ago
Good afternoon M1902KIsophiec. Until May we had COVID procedures in place to minimise risk to guests and staff. Part of the procedures, as described in the laminated sheet beside the basin, was servicing rooms every 3 days. However, if guests required more supplies, or clean crockery during their visit, all they had to do was ask. Since May, having not had a COVID case for over 12 months we relaxed our procedures a little to return to our pre-COVID days of daily servicing of our rooms.

Di & Nick are extremely welcoming, generous and helpful hosts. Their motel has had a big upgrade over the years and is a great place to stay in Ballina. Being out of town, it is quiet, has very comfortable beds, is very clean and thoughtfully laid out. We stayed in the Executive King Suite and I would recommend it - it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The on site restaurant offers delicious meals and staff are very friendly and helpful. It is particularly good for small groups and conferences. I would definitely stay there again & would highly recommend it.
