Perfect stay for 3 nights
Nice little, quiet, casual motel close to the center of Ballina. Some shopping close by and some restaurants. Judy, the manager (or owner?) was delightful and was very helpful....even allowing us a late check-out due to our late bus departure. Pool was quite tiny but we didn't use it.
