Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked three rooms last minute and the owners were helpful and accommodating. Reasonably priced, the rooms were clean and quiet and the kids loved the pool. Within walking distance to Ballina bowlo for a decent feed. Bonus for bird lovers - a really cute friendly parrot lives in reception.

Clean and comfortable and an efficient check-in; so recommended. We booked direct and obtained a good price. We found our bed a bit too soft but others often prefer this. Having a sink in a motel room always suits us. A 5-10 min flat walk to the local Sports Club with its recommended meals; that your motel key will get you at member's pricing.

Great country motel with a very helpful, friendly owner. We chose at random from internet but could have not found better value for money. A king bed, Netflix, well equipped kitchenette, space galore all for $110.

The rooms were lovely with nice decor. The hosts were friendly and carried our bags upstairs. Bree and her husband were very friendly, nothing a problem, great country hospitality. The room was a good size air conditioned with fantastic block put blinds and comfy beds. Netflix available as well as free to air TV. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. Jug, toaster and microwave on the room . Have stayed here a few years ago and will be staying again next time we're in the area. Great location, can walk to shops and club for dinner. Your room key has a card attached to it to get members prices for meals and drinks at cherry St bowls club. We had a lovely stay and the cost of the room was very reasonable. There is a pool and BBQ area as well, but as we stayed in may , Waa too cool and raining

We really enjoyed this Motel. Greeted and assisted upon arrival with suggestions on where to eat. Easy parking for our trailer. Lovely lush gardens and big pool. Impressed with the size of the rooms, and great to have a sink, coffee machine and extra dishes. Lots of space, clean and very good value. Loved it all.

We only stayed one night on a trip heading south but it was an excellent choice. It is a typical Aussie small town motel which are always the best for value and comfort but this had several extras. Three adults were comfortably accommodated with a queen and single bed in our standard twin room. There is the usual bar-size fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery, washing up supplies plus a table and chairs for three and a sofa. Other bonuses Netflix and wifi, insect spray if you did need it but also screens on the windows which opened. Air con and a swimming pool. Parking off street. Members prices for the nearby Sports Club where we had a good meal (large serves). Walking distance into town but quiet. Very helpful, friendly owners. This was among the best of such motels we have stayed at and would highly recommend to others.

We had a lovely stay at Avlon, everything was perfect!! Spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The showers are brilliant and so is the pool and bbq area. The owners are lovely, nothing is too much trouble! The only bad point was that we had to leave! Thank you Avlon team, keep up the good work ☺️

Stayed 2 nights in room number 10. The room was large and extremely comfortable Absolutely spotless. Everything you would need. Microwave, cutlery etc. Great tv with Netflix which is very rare in a motel. Very good free unlimited wifi. Great breakfasts at very reasonable prices. A small complex which is very close to shopping centres and a bowling club. Fantastic friendly owners. Will definitely stay again on my next visit to Ballina.

We only stayed for one night while travelling north but this was a great choice. The owner was very friendly, the room large, clean and well set up with a table and chairs, lounge, microwave, crockery and cutlery if needed. There was plenty of parking. It was a short walk to the club for a really tasty dinner and easy to walk down to the town and river in the morning.
