Immaculate facilities, comfy and quiet room, amazing food. The owners have certainly created an oasis for travelers to enjoy. The grounds are spotless, the pool area a lovely place to relax around and be prepared to be welcomed by Di's gorgeous Border collie.
After our meal, a nice touch - the chef came and asked us how everything was.
Highly recommend a one night or more in this hotel.

Room Tip: A room around the back furthest from the road

We had a great stay in your motel. The bed was fantastic so as everything. The dinner was great and it was very nice of the chef to ask if everything was oké. It was a pity that the weather was bad because we had to like to stay longer.

Booked a twin room for 2 adults & 1 child. You basically get what you paid for so can’t complain. The twin room isn’t upgraded as like the family room and is basic. The rock pool was nice! You’re greeted nicely by Nick.

Good afternoon Mzj14

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, over the past 12 months we have upgraded all our Executive and Premium room but have left our Standard rooms the same comfortable, clean, functional rooms that they were for those guests who just want a bed for the night and are price conscious. We do have executive Twin rooms though so next time you will have stay in one of those.

I made a last minute booking at Ballina Island Motor Inn. The booking process was simple, and upon arrival I was met and checked in by very friendly desk staff. My room was basic but clean and well appointed, and came at a good price.

The restaurant was great, again friendly staff and wonderfully flavoursome meals at a reasonable price.

If you are travelling the Pacific Highway this is a great place to break your journey - not too far from the highway.
