Was the room we occupied. It was spacious, well furnished and very comfortable. Decor was in the Balinese style, as the name suggests. The fittings were new. The place was spotless. Everything was provided, including pool towels and robes. It was great to have a swim after a long drive. This motel is within walking distance of great restaurants. One...

The Ballina Palms Boutique Motel is everything it promised. Lovely rooms, beautiful Bali Cabana near the lovely pool with gorgeous gardens. Very enjoyable stay. Free Wi Fi. Eat in kitchen with breakfast available if needed. Close to all attractions. Within walking distance of fishing and swimming in the river. Close to heart of Ballina with its great cafes, restaurants, lookout...

Absolutely loved this place. The room had a Bali feel, with bamboo flooring & wooden window shutters. The pool was really clean & loved the covered outdoor area where we were every night. Rooms are immaculate, wonderful shower, thick towels & dressing gowns. Loved it

Stayed here on an overnight stop to Queensland. From the first experience with check in to the departure we were extremely impressed with the staff, hotel and amenities. We were personally shown to our room and all features were explained , right down to all the remote controls. I have stayed in 5 star hotels overseas and have never had...

Nothing special. It's tidy and clearly recently refurbished. A pleasant place to stay for us on a road trip. Air conditioner could have done with some maintenance as it made a rattle whilst being used.

I found my stay at Ballina Palms boutique very very disappointing. As a traveller I expect to feel welcome and treated with courtesy when checking into a motel after driving over 9 hours in a day. The service that was offered to be was unfriendly, not to mention that I paid top dollar to have a room with a door...

Easy to find but appalling customer service. There were large gaps under the door to the room from outside which I did not like, I used some clothes to to prevent creepie crawlies / snakes from getting in. Pool was unusable, looked like it had not been cleaned for weeks. On arrival we were asked whether we would like pay...

With christmas planned at Ballina with the folks and no room at their "inn", we found ourselves needing a place to lay our weary heads for two nights over Christmas. Mum (who lives in Ballina) started going around the various accommodation spots a good three months out, but many places had minimum stays, and we only wanted two nights. But...

Excellent hotel which happened to have a spare studio room available when we pulled up unannounced. Very affordable for this time of year ($165 for the night). Room was very comfortable, air-conditioned, immaculate and convenient. Would recommend.
