A quick stop over
A quick stop over on the way home. Warm and friendly greeting was appreciated. Room was clean, well laid out and quite comfortable and reasonably well equipped with microwave etc. Quite close to places to eat and since Ballina has had the highway bypass, a quiet place. Would stay again.

I know now why it ranking is so good
No really near the major eating places but that was not really a problem as it was quet, comfotable and clean
Donna, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Friendly and helpful.
As I had read in other reviews, the owner was very friendly and helpful and this created a nice atmosphere. For instance, I was offered plates and cutlery if I chose to have take away in the room. The hotel and the room, while basic, were more than adequate for a short stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was convenient although on a very busy road (like many other near by motels)
