    Excellent position on outskirts of Ballina. Rooms 1 - 3 have bars in bathroom and toilet; excellent for aged/disabled. Comfortable room, and breakfast provided if required. Stayed once more on our return.

    We stayed one night here and it was clean, quiet and friendly staff were helpful. A good place to break up our trip and we had a sound night's rest. Room had toaster and all the necessaries. Recommended.

    This motel is located on a main road, but set back from it. Night time road noise is minimal. Clean accommodation. Comfy bed and a good night's rest. Friendly staff. Conveniently located for a road trip. Excellent value for money!
