Ballina Colonial Motel

Traveller (3)
Room & Suite (3)


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 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.

Quite a nice Motel. Bed was comfortable and rooms had all you need. Dereck & Jackie were very hospitable. Within walking distance to the bowling club which servers great meals. WiFi was super fast 25/12.

We stayed here along with another couple for two nights, and it's better than your average motel. It is clean, the bed is comfortable and the shower works. It's not 5 star, but it's good value and about a 15 - 20 minute walk down to the main restaurants.

Very happy with our stay. We stayed in room 4. Room & bathroom were very clean, shower is large which made it easier when trying to shower young children. Parking is undercover which is a bonus. Staff are very friendly. Only has basic amenities (pool, fridge, TV, air

A nice little motel, with clean and well sized rooms. Facilities are good and it is well positioned in town. It is quiet, with no street noise. It has a pool too which we didn’t use, but it’s nice to know it’s there, especially in summer! A good option in Ballina.
