Great value accommodation in Ballina
We were having a lot of difficulty finding somewhere to stay in or around Byron Bay for the Easter Bluesfest Weekend, Frank had a look at this place in Ballina and booked it. Ballina is only about a half hours drive from Byron Bay, so it was feasible to drive to Bluesfest from here. Also, this Motel did not require a minimum booking, as a lot of places did over the Bluesfest weekend, and we only wanted it for 3 nights. Most accommodation in Byron Bay was either booked out, way too expensive or required a minimum of 5 or more nights.
Motel was very easy to find, on the main road heading into Ballina, quite clearly visible by the large white sails around the pool area.
Frank originally booked a standard room for $140 a night, but I later convinced him to upgrade to the Spa Suite for $200 per night, they only have one Spa Suite, which they also call the Honeymoon Suite!!! The room was tastefully decorated, large and clean and Id say definitely worth the $200 per night.
Unique Quality: Easy to find
Pleasant and helpful Staff
Directions: Very easy to find on the left of the main road heading into Ballina, southern entrance to Ballina.
