Base for weekend break
We use this hotel as a base for exploring the surrounding area. Everywhere we visited was an hour or so away. It was reasonably priced, although breakfast wasn't included. All the staff were encountered were genuinely friendly and helpful. Despite the weather being bad we didn't mind spending the extra time at the hotel as our room was warm, spacious and comfortable. The WiFi signal isn't the best and couldn't be realied upon by someone who is very digitally dependant. Efforts have been made to made to maintain the hotel but there are a few areas that are the worse for wear but a bit of tlc would go a long way to update it.

Wasn't expecting too much, but it was very pleasant, only a few minutes walk back into Ballina and a very nice breakfast. Easy parking as well which isn't the case with some other hotels locally.
