The Ballina Colonial Motel provides a quiet location, away from the main thoroughfare, just south of Ballina Shopping Centres and within easy reach of the beaches, river, shops, clubs and restaurants. We are just a 25 More minute scenic drive from Byron Bay via Lennox Head. Here at the Colonial, we are always looking to enhance the quality of the accommodation we provide and over a three year period we are undertaking some major refurbishments. By the end of 2013, all the Bedrooms were upgraded and in 2014/15, we will be working on new Bathrooms, as well as completing improvements to the Outdoor Pool Area. Less
